I got to know !

Hello all , I have an old Jacobsen imperial 26 s blower, almost finished restoring it . have been trying to find an answer to this question. > the front auger of my blower sticks out past the front bucket ( housing) , been told this means it's pre 1970 . I had a 67 mustang fast back in the 80s , same color green as in bullet. In bullet it is a 68 a way to tell was gov. Made all American car manufacturers put side marker lights on cars after 67 . As the 68 had in bullet. Can anybody tell me if after a certain date snow blowers could no longer be sold with out the auger being totally covered . And if You know , what year ? It's funny to me how many safety changes where not made yet back then. My uncle had me using a band saw at around 8 years old, He would just joke and tell me when done to count my fingers and be sure I still had 10, guess now I can get back to that . Lol ? Any help would be great , thank You ! ?

Are you joking? You need to limit questions to those relating to snow blowers and the others take tot he appropriate forums.

I mean, it may not be an everyday snowblowers question, but it *is* snowblowers-related.

I don't know the answer, sorry. I've never used a machine like that, but I'd expect they'd do a good job of chewing into solid snowbanks, since the first thing to "arrive" would be the spinning augers, not the bucket.

Hi bodenspop6

I can't answer that question, but I like to see some pictures when you can!

Ok then..
Actually, he asked only one question, and it was about snowblowers.

Pop, to answer your question, I've never heard of any specific regulations, but it happened generally during the 60's. Ariens had open-side buckets 1960 to 1964, and sides fully covered starting in '65.

I think the government saw snowblowers as too dangerous to regulate.. Once the government starts regulating something, people start blaming the government for injuries.

@Boden

Here is my fathers Yardman 7100, which I now own, which has the protruding augers past the side walls some. It is my go to machine for the end of drive as well as any serious snowfall. I believe he purchased it around 1970. And to answer your question, it walks through any type of snow with ease, as well as blows it anywhere with its rotating chute as well as the chute drum. Ingenuous design.

My spotting cues to tell a '67 from a '68 have always been:
`67 has the faux air intakes just behind the doors, '68 doesnt.
`67 has horizontal extensions coming out of the pony emblem in the grille, '68 doesnt.
I have never noticed the marker lights! Good to know!

I'm also a Mustang fan! my first car was a '81 Mustang, purchased used in '88 when I was 19 years old. Drove it all through college and a few years after.. I loved that car.
