1961 Work Dodger blower - MINT !!! in Denver $100.00

Here is one for your collection !
Too nice to use and may well be the nicest 1961 blower in original condition I've ever seen outside a museum.
I'd pick it up myself, but I don't have room to store a garage queen.
Spectrum should add this to his Vintage Machine Showcase on his Gilson site !

Prose from ad...
"1961 Work Dodger Snow Blower in excellent original condition. This snowblower is really cool and small, is only 15" wide. Has a Briggs and Stratton engine with the gear reduction unit, is chain driven, starts 1-2 pulls, runs and idles great, paint is in excellent condition and shines, no oil leaks, has been in storage indoors for many years at a local church. Great for the vintage machine or Briggs collector, or if you just need a cool little snowblower this season. $100"

Vintage 1961 Snowblower, Snow Blower

It's in great shape and deserves a place on Spectrum's page, but I'm surprised they outfitted it w/a Briggs engine w/an air filter.

Looks like a county fair display. Used, but preserved in it's current condition from that period.

Could be used, but there are better, more modern examples that could be had.

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.

Clean machine. Wonder how that carb air cleaner holds up in use?
