Who made this old thrower

Just looking at Craigslist and saw this.. Anyone know about it? Called a Polar Bear. I see a 26" path and 6hp engine. Looks pretty clean. I lightend up the logo pic so you can see it.

Nice big snow blower

I'm thinking AMF, that may even be their logo top and center on the bucket.

Agree with Pete, I've seen them advertised as made by AMF

My buddy has one of those machines which has lovingly been nicknamed the circumcisor.

that looks like a good old story.. Is it worth ???? I see the box is half gone ..No wonder.

The original "Drift Breaker".
I I thought AMF was bought up by Noma. Then Murray perhaps bought Noma?

I'm not sure about that machine but my buddies has the drive/auger belt engagement lever located near the chute. The lever in the operator position on the handlebars worked like a car clutch pedal. It disengaged the friction disk from the drive wheel stopping the machine and allows for shifting speed positions.

A neat relic, not a great design. Particularly Dangerous.
