Geez that old baby looks great! Good enough for a separate section in a car show!

Just picked up a barely used 2015 Ariens Deluxe 28 today. I've always owned used machines, mostly older Toros, but for the last 14 years I've owned an 8/26 MTD. This is the epitome of trading up!!!



And, now I'll have to change my Snowblower Forum signature!!!

Current Machines:
2015 Ariens Deluxe 28
1995 Yard-White-Bilt (An MTD Yard Machines 8/26 with a "dashboard" and deflector control from a White Outdoor tracked blower and a longer crank handle from a Troy-Bilt)

thanks. I do have to repaint the control panel to match.( fire red ) The bucket, chute, and gas tank was bead blasted and powder coated. The engine has very good compression and the manual tranny works well. The previous owner took very good care of it. And it looked pretty good stock but I wanted it to look better.

I also put a chrome muffler on after this picture was taken. adds class.

keeps me out of the bars.

Pulled out the blowers for "summerizing".


then while catching some rays, I built them a loft to make better use of my shed's volume.

I just cut the lawn last Tuesday after putting my 2 Toro CCRs away for the season and sure enough we are expecting snow this weekend. Oh well, I won't have to cut the grass.

Worked my 19th day in a row, and have one more to go tomorrow. 20 days. Once I go to sleep tomorrow, I won't wake up until May 20th!
