they keep coming home with me....

Went to a friend of my sister to work on there SB, figured I'd try a quick jet cleaning but need to pull the carb for a good cleaning on there machine BUT they also had a smaller Ariens SS322 2 stroke and she tells me a friend gave it to them because they couldn't get it to start and they never did anything with it and asked if I wanted it????? aaaaaahhhhhhh who am I to say no right???? Well it is complete and looks in good shape so I figure I will clean the carb and give it to my sister just to get it out of my WAY over stuffed garage. I NOW have 7 Snow Blowers at my residence, Thank god one is leaving when I get the carb clean and another to my sister... OH and picking another up hopefully after work but already have a buyer for it, quick flip on a old Lawn-boy 522R or a green toro you could call it, pic looks really good and supposedly runs good but going to go through it and make a small profit. So will have 8 as of tomorrow..... I need a bigger garage....

That was happening to me too. Had 5 . Neighbor gave me a HS828. Then picked up a couple others, HS50-and a 55 .
Already have a 624 for ourselves. and another 828.....almost forgot one .

We had 2 on the front deck, one on the walkway and 2 in garage between the 2 cars.

Well, when we had those two HUGE 3-4 day storms in the Sierras dumping foot after foot of snow I threw 3 of them on craigslist.

Sold one in 3 days and the other 2 within hours ......all for my asking price and very nice profits.

Supply and demand BABY!

Sounds like my problem!!!
I've thinned the heard down to 17 or so that I'm in the process of rebuilding, but only sold a few this year due to lack of snow. Guess I'll be painting this summer to help appearance for next season.

Yea I'm thinking of just priming the Ariens just to have it back together and pulling it apart in the spring to paint, going to sand blast the impeller housing and get a good surface to paint. Spring works as I have way too many things to fix much like you, you have a much nicer shop however Shaw
