1960 Ariens in NH

Saw this listed for $50

Spoke to the guy, it's a 1960. The transmission was replaced to a friction disc 20 years ago as he couldn't find parts to fix the transmission. Also the engine doesn't run, he thinks the camshaft snapped.

Normally I'd gobble up a 1960 but with two little ones my time for restorations is limited. Hopefully someone can restore this beauty.

Snowblowers Arien/Toro

1961 Ariens 10ML-35
1963 Ariens 10M-L60D
1969 Ariens 10970

Nice!
I never knew a mower could attach to a 1960! that's a new one..
I always thought attachment couldn't be used with 1960, '61 and '62 Ariens, and could only be used starting in '63 with the "Gard-N-Yard" line..

(I believe '63 is when the attachments first came out, but I never knew they were backwards compatible to '60, '61 and '62 snowblowers..good to know!)

If I was close enough it'd be long gone. $50 and the mower deck too . . . . just shoot me.



Can likely get a couple hundred for just the mower deck from the right Ariens nut !!


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

I dont know about "a couple hundred"..but maybe! it is in nice shape..
but generally there is zero demand for these things, at least locally to the one being sold..because the two or three people who do want them live a thousand miles from the one for sale! a seller often cant even find a buyer..so value is quite low.

Must be like JD green, at least in this area. Last one I saw around here the guy was asking $400 for a running tractor, blower, mower and Vac. They were in restoreable shape.

A lot of you probably know that I am more into Hondas and Yamahas, but I finally am the proud owner of a (although "not running/not working") 1960 Ariens Snowblower.

I will share some pictures in the next few days.

Many thanks to rnaude241 for sharing the CL listing and to Kiss4aFrog for the encouragement.

You were the other guy who called first. I just wanted the 1960 backend. Look forward to hearing the progress on it. If you need any parts for them I have plenty.

Thanks Mike.
I was actually the third caller (according to him). He called me back yesterday and ask me if I still wanted it.
I pick it up today and I asked him about the first two callers, he said he left messages but there were no callbacks, so that is why he called me (the third one on the list).
I'll let you know if I need something for it/them.
