We Need a Snowblower Museum or Exhibition

When you look back at the old snowblowers and how they have evolved over the years you can feel a bit nostalgic about the old beasts. I wish there was a national snowblower museum or a vintage snowblower exhibition to showcase the old girls... What am I saying? Some of you guys already have a snowblower museum in the back of your property!

That would be cool! I would go to that museum..

Ariens has their own museum! All Ariens products naturally, but still very cool..
Here is a good video, with absolutely horrible music..turn your volume down , all the way, its much better that way:

I was under the impression that half the guys here have a snowblower museum in their own backyards.

Seeing my wife's face when I suggest a trip to the National Air and Space Museum makes me think she isn't going to be on board with a side trip to the NSBM.

There's just one thing I'll guarantee , the best things in life, they sure AIN'T FREE !!

88 Craftsman II Trac-Plus 10/32 [wheeled conversion]
71 Ariens SnoThro 6/24 [Predator 6.5 repower]
72 Ariens SnoThro 6/24 with original Tecumseh H60
7? Ariens Tractor with rotary mower attachment [Tecumseh HSK100 repower]

One member of our forum (Pete / Spectrum / The Gilson Guy) has his own little museum set up on his web site.

https://www.gilsonsnowblowers.com/snowvintage.html

Please direct all snow blower questions to the forums and not to me with PMs.

There is a snow blower museum in canada or at least there was at one time as that is where the first walk behind was built and patented.
