It's free, pick me, pick me !!

I think I need to start a thread of snowblowers I could have had for free but wasn't fast enough or first.

Waiting on a response from this craigslist ad:

70's snowblower

I have a free 70"s snow blower that could be used for parts or turned in for scrape metal.


Only other info is it's a Sears. Could be a broken 1032 Drift Breaker with the headlight bar or some poor SS.
No photos and you never know if it's connecting rod is sticking through the side of the engine or if it lost a simple bearing or bushing the guy decided wasn't worth trying to find.

.
Make sure the windows are up before the snow plow goes by !!

Well it was "posted: 2016-01-05 4:08pm"
That's today.
Maybe the guy is still working.....or even out blowing snow.
Patience is said to be a virtue.

Give it some time and space, and you'll get your answer.
You might even wind up with whatever it is......

It's hard to beat the scrapers these days..... they seem to have lots of free time to grab good savable stuff and trash it :>(

I work with a guy who's even worse than that. He finds "treasures" at the local dump, brings them home, puts them in the yard somewhere, then ignores them forever. He's got 7 or 8 snowblowers, many of which were probably repairable when he got them, but I wouldn't touch them with a 10-foot pole now.

~1994 Ariens 924084 (ST1032) "papa bear": restored, re-engined, real nice!
1991 Ariens 924050 (ST824) "mama bear"
Toro PowerCurve 1800 "baby bear"

Be alert! America needs more lerts.
