I am not too up to date on the age of newer looking machines, but it looks plausible. As for the engine it looks like a Tecumseh L head based on the fuel tank.

Please direct all snow blower questions to the forums and not to me with PMs.

Thats a pretty decent price, at $300. I would be asking around $400 for, if it was mine.

I bought the same one one recently for $200 without the chute turning controls. I believe its a 2005. It has a L head Tecumseh, 23.5" intake height, 16" augers, 14" 4 vane impeller, remote chute deflector, and drift cutters. Got my info from here 2005 Ariens 8526LE Deluxe Snowblowers

Yes, it sounds like it needs a good carb cleaning.

Yea, sounds like the jets need cleaned. Does putting the choke on slightly cure the surging?

at full throttle and no load it is not that unusual for them to surge. Does it still surge if you put it in gear and hold back on it putting a load on the engine. Beings that it is used a good carb cleaning is still a good idea. Carl.
