A Freebie From Outer Space??

Either Scottie beamed this down to me from the USS Enterprise or a neighbor dropped it off in my side yard sometime last night.

don't even know what it is. I think it has a B&S engine. how can I identify it ? can not find any identifying decals.

I would guess a snapper from late 80’s to early 90’s
Hope the link works on the phone but pretty sure it’s a snapper now, has a Tec engine but the rest is close.

Sno-Tek Modded, 15"X-Track tires (Now has same X-Track tires but 13"x4" for better fit), 254cc engine LED light and hand warmers.
Snapper 6/22 sold but not forgotten. Was my first.
Ariens ST1027LE workhorse and going strong.
New 2017 Ariens Deluxe completely rebuilt after losing a fight with a forklift.

I second Dauntae.....I knew that one right away.....Heard those were solid machines back in the day.

Someone on here mentioned they had one in work or owned one outright and they said it was the best blower they had ever used that it ran like a Tank. Sorry story is fuzzy but I remember it was a snapper of that style....

Your new snapper has a home made chute extension....

that old snapper is a beast. I had one and it was a great machine. I suggest you look at the impeller clearance and close it up and it will move anything

i didn't know they were that good. I am giving it away. I just like to work on Honda's.

one perk about being retired......can pick and choose.
