picking this up

Found this on CL yesterday. Picking it up tomorrow night. Harbor Freight (Predator 212) here I come....again! Do I need it? No. But you guys got me hooked on redoing snowblowers.

Perfect price for a parts/project machine.

Garage:
MTD....2 stage(modern 8.5 HP) not my favorite
Honda HS622 TA-B - acquired at an auction- nice machine for it's size.
Toro S-140- Picked it up on trash day... it runs, sort of.
Yamaha YS 240 TB "Ricky" latest Craigslist find- on the bench now.

Gonna do the exact same thing I did to my 89 MTD. New Predator 212, Xtraks, bushing, bearings,paint if needed etc. Only reason is because it was fun. I really don't need two snowblowers.

it is better to have two snow blowers than none at all. two is company, three is a crowd, and one is the lonely list of them all. YEAHHHHHHHHHHH I just ran that up the old flag pole. to see if it would wave in the wind.

Long LIVE THE POWERSHIFT!! MAY IT NEVER RUST IN PEACE!!

$25 is great price, even if it ends being a twin shaft engine. I'm looking forward to seeing your progress, maybe you can start a thread and update us as you go.

How did I miss that?

Hmm....I normally jump at these opportunities...even if not in Central Mass.
