Freebies!

Got a Couple of Freebies Yesterday...Ariens 8524 and Yardmachines 5-22. The Ariens Chassis was worn where the Axle Bearing Sits, and gears would not Mesh. A little Time with the Mig Welder Fixed That.....The MTD had a small Rock Jammed in the Auger, and Needed a carb Clean. I would have repaired them for the Owners, but they just wanted them Gone!

Will Sell the Ariens on CL, Will Most Likely Donate the 5-22 to a Neighbor who needs one. Getting Another Freebie Today...A Local Contractor Fixing a House to be Sold is Cleaning it Out as Well, and will be Bringing me one Today...He doesn't know the brand. Stay Tuned.....

Today's freebie is a ST724 in Pretty Good Condition. Had no Spark, and I Broke a head bolt While Trying to get to the ignition. Changed the Coil, and then spent some time Drilling Out the Broken Bolt, and Retapping. Cleaned the carb, and Got it Running. Needs to be Cleaned up, but will make a Good Blower for Somebody... Nothing Like a Freebie!

Its in pretty nice condition, their usually rust buckets. I just picked up one of those this week, for parts. They ground down the the housing to nothing. Paid $50 for mine. I needed the impeller for another one I have. I'm gonna sell the motor.




Ariens ST11528LE
Honda HS720

Got This Freebie Yesterday. I'm Not a Big Fan of Single Stage Machines, but it was Free....Runs Great, Needs a set of $32 Paddles-On Order. Craftsman wants to Sell You a Whole Auger for some $200, Probably why the Owner Gave it to Me....

You must have a huge sign along an Interstate for all those freebees

Snow Removal Apparatus I own:
Ariens ST1530DLE, and good ole arm powered scrapper.
The 15 HP is a new Ducar engine sold
by Princess Auto in Canada.
