The company still exists:

Jari USA, Home of the Jari Sickle Mower

Just no reference to any snow equipment.

That thing is old. What is that covering the spark plug?

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.

It is a very old machine which predates the modern 2 stage design of collecter augers and an impeller to throw the snow. It could be as old as a 1950's era machine since the present 2 stage design was first introduced in the mid 1960's. As to a snow removal machine it is inferior to a modern 2 stage machine or even a good one stage machine. I guess if you want to buy it to fix it up and to have it more for a converstion piece then it may be worth getting but since it has an old design that predates the modern 2 stage design I would not want to use it to remove snow with.

I love the factory graphics. It's a shame that more haven't followed suit.

Post 2---- It looks like a rudimentary spark plug shield. Keep in mind that "snow engines" didn't come along for a while so companies adapted with bread box covers and other custom widgets.

A little more here.

I guess that could be, but in all of the different brands and models you have on your page, and things I have seen, I don't ever remember anything that resembled that. It could have been that I just overlooked it, or got distracted by a kid, my own, touching something they were not supposed to.

Shoot I'm half tempted to buy that and fix it up just to see what it will do in the snow, but I suppose they probably quite making them for a reason...
I see the price has been lowered to $35.
