If my dad had bought the 7hp Simplicity I would have it right now. $365.00 back then is equal to $2765.00 now. I guess I'd better go out and get something soon before I'm spending $3000.00

I'm thinking that the disk head on that "little wonder" would make a great attachment for a "modern" string-trimmer power head. I have the brush-cutter head for it now, just need to weld a few paddles on it and a stationary rear shield so the throw can be directed.

Plus it would eat annoying children and pets, making it a true multi-purpose tool!

I love my snowblower. Every beat of it's little heart is one mine won't have to take.

OMG that brings back memories!

My parents and grandparents both moved to MA in 1966. We got a Jacobsen that was probably the model 52003 listed there, and my grandfather got one of the electric Sunbeams with the Teflon-coated chute (the coating worked pretty well).

When I was in my teens, I got a used Hahn-Eclipse in a trade that quite possibly was the model 588-6 listed there (6 HP Tecumseh engine) and later a neighbor gave me my first Ariens which probably was a 10M-6. I put a 10 HP Honda engine on it and man was that thing a beast.

The Hahn-Eclipse on the other hand I couldn't wait to get rid of... it was nothing but trouble. In hindsight, I'm sure some of that was poor maintenance on the part of the prior owner and ignorance (= poor maintenance) on my part.

~1994 Ariens 924084 (ST1032) "papa bear": restored, re-engined, real nice!
1991 Ariens 924050 (ST824) "mama bear"
Toro PowerCurve 1800 "baby bear"

Be alert! America needs more lerts.

@ELaw,

Off topic, but if I was not a foolish teenager back then, I would still own my 64 1/2 Falcon Sprint convertible 260 V8, 4 on the floor that was so fun to drive.

The sad thing is most of those manufacturers are either long gone or just their name remains; applied to some inferior machine.

Ditto, I'd still have my 1959 Oldsmobile 98 Holiday with the 394 Rocket 4 barrel... Darn Arab oil crisis killed it for me; 8MPG city and 12MPG highway. Olds is another great name that's gone...

Had to find a picture of the most expensive blower at the time.

SNOWLINE
This machine was built by the Snowline Corporation of Eatontown, New Jersy in the late 1950's. It is Model #930 featuring a 9 horsepower Wisconsin engine and 30 inch cut. This looks like a rugged machine with big tires and an unusual chute deflector. It's a 2 stage unit with very large tires for the day. This machine has been restored. I have also seen this machine under the Maxim brand by the Maxim Silencer Company of Hartford Connecticut.
