I vaguely remember a mention that those machines could either be re-branded MTD's or Noma's. I could be wrong, but it may be worth looking at the data plate and cross reference the model number.

And honestly, I find it a little strange that there is as little information on these machines as there is. Especially taking into consideration Canadian winters, and how reliant folks are on them.

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.

A lot of Mastercraft were made by MTD. I was able to get a manual for mine by phoning MTD & giving them the model & s/n.
Like any used machine, you need to check it out well before you buy. Check for augers and wheels rusted to the shafts, warn shafts, bushings/bearings and belts. Take off the bottom plate to check out the gearbox/drive train.

Cheers

At that price, if things are more than you want to deal with, you may be able to part it out and recover your initial investment. And you get the benefit of quality garage time.

If you buy it post more pictures of it. My Craftsman blowers are Noma and they are tanks. Curious if there are "related".

.
Make sure the windows are up before the snow plow goes by !!
