Old Toro 7hp with handles for $50

Is it worth $50? I might pick it up tomorrow. What should I look out for?

I also don't have room but I always wanted an old ariens plus it's 5 miles away from my house. I wanted to pick it up tonight but the owner said tomorrow and would give the address tomorrow. From my past experience these type of cases usually don't work out.

Looks like one I bought the other year, though I spent more for mine. Issues I ran into was a bad friction disc, cracked welds on the auger assembly and bad bushings. You also want to check the auger gearcase and stuck auger rakes.
That's all before you check out the engine for issues.

Guys, these things don't happen to me but I got it for freeeeeeeeee. Three girls which didn't really know what it was. It runs super well. My friend helped me get it into my truck without any issue.

There is a safety switch on the right hand handlebar that needs to be gripped when you engage auger,,,,,,can be unplugged if not working. I've ordered dozens of carbs on e-bay and all but one were perfect ...try and get one that is adjustable. This is one of Ariens finest blowers and with care will last you the rest of your life.....and beyond.

In your photos,nthe carb looks fine, and you will never find a Chinese part as good as the original. Clean/rebuild it and you should be fine . . .there is very little to go wrong in these carbs. I have stuff 50+ years old, and have *never* needed to change a carb!

And, as others have said, there are 'safety' interlocks, and this was when they were just being mandated . . . there were some pretty inane/illogical things done in the early years . . . . As a test, you could try disconnecting the kill wire to see if it still dies . . . If so, likely just set too lean on the main jet . . .
