A Good Day For Sure! FB is Down Today, so I haven't yet been able to Arrange Picking it up. Whatever Model it Turns out to be, I'm Sure I'll Move it Out Quickly. Honda's Not My Niche.

i'd be interested in the model when you find out. I recently got a free HS50 that is only good for parts. Got a HS80 last year free that had a locked up engine that you helped me with on unlocking with some penetrating oil down the plug hole. It works fine now but I'll have to replace friction disk if I wanna sell. There was a piece of it came off and was lying in the bottom of engine bed that a shoe-gooed back on and it works fine, believe it or not .

other than those 2 Honda's , everything else i get free are other brands that I repair and then give away. Murray , craftsman, Homelite/jacobsen , MTD , These blowers work okay but they are generally not suited for our area snow. So people don't want to spend money and repair. The landfill is full of these machines but they won't let me take them out.

Can't complain. I got a 2012 late model HS928 for $200. All it needed was a service and Hydros-static oil change as the tranny was not working and the owner was told the tranny was toast. I sold it for a pretty penny a couple months ago..

I guess I wined a little too early. It wasn't free like Jackmels but for $50 I couldn't hand him the cash fast enough. It''s a 921030 Deluxe 28 with a bad engine, likely broken rod but that works for me. It's in overall great shape otherwise.
Now I have to figure out what will swap on fairly easy.
I do have a bolt for that left driftbreaker that's a bit bent. Should have taken off five bucks

Nice! Yeah, you give up being able to say you don't get to find the good deals. That looks great.

There is a thread currently with a 369cc for $250. Depending on budget and desired power, that could be a nice solution.

i'd wait for spring and summer for some sweet free or low cost deals. even advertise on Craigs asking for free junk blowers and save people money on dump and haz-mat fees.
