Ariens st504??

Anyone know about these? I believe they are pretty old. I found one that looks pretty clean with newer motor and fresh carb. The owner says it runs great. I think it's going for a decent price but don't want to spend $ on a piece of junk if I don't have to.

I had one didnt think much of it i live in mass on the coast its way under powered for real snow good for small storms
If you put and impeller kit on it it will work for the most part
here you can get a st824 from 200 to 350 bucks wont look nice but its a much better machine
I woudnt buy it unless i got very little snow and it was very cheap
It looks to be in nice shape
If you handy id buy an st824 cheap and fix it up

Im in Michigan just south of Detroit. We get snow but not near as much as the northern part of the state. Most of our snowfalls are 2 to 4" with the farely rare 6 to 8". He wants $200 for it and says it works great. I haven't even tries to negotiate a price yet as I just don't know much about them. I tell you what though i think it's a pretty cool looking machine. I can see me getting into a snowblower hobby for sure. Would compliment my archery gig well lol..

Right now they are high we are getting a bit more snow than usual. Still just 3 to 4" but it's been like everyday for a few days and it's not supposed to stop for another week. I haven't been able to find much for less. Older 16" Toro powerlites are going for around the same price. Those little machines are excellent for around here I'm just thinking why not get something cool.

In sure it would assuming the machine runs like it's supposed to. Most folks around here are using much smaller machines.
