Funny How Moving Snow Can Be So Addictive

Great forum with so much knowledge and helpful members who seem to have developed the same addiction: smile2:

Attached photo of my snow moving tools not including 4 or 5 various size shovels and roof snow puller.

1. Little electric corded blower for large rear deck. Deck has glass panels and I got tired of shoveling snow over the railings so picked this up at a garage sale this summer for cheap. Works great blows snow over the railings no problem.

2. Main machine Ariens 28 SHO bought last year after using this forum to help make my decision. Very happy with it. Did the mod for extending the chute rotation and added a slower 1st gear by adding a notch in the control panel.

3. Sentimental favourite 1967 10000 series 5/24 Ariens purchased new by my father. Very original machine and runs like a champ after doing some maintenance this year. New head gasket, valve job, new carb and muffler, tachometer install and increase RPM to 3500.

4. Toro Power Shovel this is a 2 stroke that was only made for 2 years (83 and 84 I think). Picked from the curb several years ago. Runs great and will really blow powdery snow. Not the most practical but you get the neighbours attention when you fire up this little screamer.

So thanks for helping me feed my addiction. Thinking of picking up another old Ariens (60's or 70's) to restore, any suggestions on an interesting model to be on the lookout for?

No . I HATE moving snow… I do it because I HAVE to do it. Can't wait 'till spring gets here, all the snow has melted away and the grass starts growing again!

Lived in Ontario, Alliston area for first 27 yrs and left in 1970, can not believe the winter you guys are having but still has Feb. to come and I seen many nasty late winters there, best starting to get some snow soon or it will be a bad spring and summer, looks like it might start cooling off this coming week, Good Luck.
