Interesting Machines from CL

I found a few machines browsing CL the other day and thought I would share it.

SNOWBLOWER/ ALLLIS CHALMERS

https://annarbor.craigslist.org/grd/...424032799.html

Owner states it was made for military.

“This machine was built for the military using heavier gauge Steele . Has military unit numbers.”

He proceeds to make below comment, it made me chuckle:

“Don't call me with stupid ass offers, this a mans machine.”


I also found this vintage Craftsman. Looks an interesting single stage.

https://detroit.craigslist.org/wyn/g...398783670.html

Anyway thought I would share it with y’all

Happy New Year

Looks like a Simplicity. Nice repaint, he painted right over the spark plug wire and boot. He took real care.

Only thing that stopped him from painting the chute is he would need a decal for the lettering. I'm sure the rest of the machine looked then like the chute looks now.

The rest of the machine still looks like crap. Look in the bucket, he painted right over rust, painted the muffler with the silver paint, 1/2 assed job if I ever saw one. When you're selling something like that, better off leave it "as is" than do a crappy restore like that.

Looks like a paint bomb went off in the auger housing. Even the gearbox is painted. Sad for a nice machine to end up like this.

2016 Ariens Professional 28
2017 Toro Power Clear 721R
2018 Simplicity Select 1024

...but there does seem to be a metal cover over the front 1/3 of the gas tank. Does anyone know what's up with that?

~1994 Ariens 924084 (ST1032) "papa bear": restored, re-engined, real nice!
1991 Ariens 924050 (ST824) "mama bear"
Toro PowerCurve 1800 "baby bear"

Be alert! America needs more lerts.
