so what is it

A Craigslist listing out of Milford, Connecticut. It has a side discharge chute like an old Yardbird - yet on this one, it folds back up for storage.

Interesting! I dont know what that is..
I grabbed the photo in case the Craigslist ad goes away:



The bucket shape has the look of early Snowbird buckets:



We still dont know what the very first Snowbird, the Model F, looks like:

Snowbird Snowblowers

But I doubt this is it..the only thing that looks Snowbird-ish is the bucket..

Found it!
Pete has it listed on his site:

The Gilson Snowblower Shop's Vintage Machine Showcase

Its a "Smart*Way"..thats a unique chute design!
I wonder if there is a Snowbird connection? as far as the bucket goes, and the drive also looks similar to a Snowbird..
Snowbird could have provided Smart*Way with parts..
