Call me crazy but I think either you go single stage or self propelled two stage. I can't imagine trying to push that through an EOD pile of slightly frozen snow.

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

Thats Right! Detdr... I thought I have seen one of those in the past, it was a craftsman. You could always use the wheels on a garden cart rebuild!

Those were small 932000 series machines. And as discussed above, the wheels are not powered!
There are only four known models, made for a few years in the mid 1980's.
Known made in 1984, 1985 and 1986. and perhaps into '87, but likely not longer than that.
three or four years.

Quote:
932015 - ST 2+2 - 2.5 HP SNO-THRO (First listed in 1984 manuals, probably also produced for a few years after '84)
932016 - ST 5+2
932017 - ST 2+2 ELEC - ELECTRIC SNO-THRO (First listed in 1985 manual.)
932018 - ST 2+2 5HP DELUXE (First listed in 1986 manuals, probably also produced for a few years after '86)

A note on the "2+2" models listed above.
These are among the smallest and simplest 2-stage machines ever built by Ariens.
These are small, 2-stage machines with 2.5 or 3hp engines, and no drive transmission!
the wheels are not powered..the machine is "auger driven", meaning the augers propel the machine
forward while eating into the snow, and the wheels simply free-wheel along.
Im still not sure exactly what "2+2" or "5+2" means.
thanks to Marty for this information.

I have had a little experience with the craftsman model, and I will tell you that if the auger and bucket are intact, it will take off on you when you start it. So, auger propulsion is effective. And they are fairly light weight.

That said, the picture shown leads me to believe that the bucket has been ground down. A further inspection of the augers would be needed.

Garage:
MTD....2 stage(modern 8.5 HP) not my favorite
Honda HS622 TA-B - acquired at an auction- nice machine for it's size.
Toro S-140- Picked it up on trash day... it runs, sort of.
Yamaha YS 240 TB "Ricky" latest Craigslist find- on the bench now.

I am deathly allergic to shovels!
