2008 Storm 2410

Here are some pics of my 2008 Storm 2410. May not win beauty contests but does get the job done. What you see now is the stock 179cc Powermore engine. Will be doing the Predator 212cc engine upgrade shortly.





Its a bit banged up and some rust, but it still gets the job done. Hopefully I'll get to use Big Red

Those are some huge skids! My Father just got a 2410. It's probably a 2012 model, only used once or twice. The original skids do look pretty weak.

Those are the Armor skids. I got tired of the front of the machine constantly banging into the raised sidewalk slabs and denting the auger housing. We'll see how the new skids hold up this winter. That unit is 6 years old. Just put on a new drive and auger belt. Making sure this beast is ready for winter

I just picked up a used Ariens 926. The weight difference between the 2410 and 926 is amazing. I was not expecting the weight of the 926, since I had already helped lift the 2410 into his van last month and it was a piece of cake.

This will be the first winter for the both of us using a two-stage. Last winter turned us off with only having single stage blowers. They help, but life was **** when the snow drifts were three times as high as the blower, every other week!

My 2410 comes in at 195 lbs. My neighbor and I have to load it into the back of his Yukon so I can get to his moms house and do cleanup. The machine is an animal. Makes me lots of green paper with some presidents on it.

I was thinking about that, since I got such a beefy machine...making some money.

But you can be cited for the city by not requesting a permit (and paying the fees!)

Here in NY they don't bother. They will ticket for non cleanup. You would think that they'd want you to help your neighbors cleanup sidewalks. But I guess they want you to pay to make money

In my community, they require people driving around and picking up stuff on trash night to apply for a permit and display it in their window, otherwise you can be cited.

I'm not sure how they could prove anything. Freedom allows one to drive around with junk in their trunk in the middle of the night, if they wish.

Although I believe their "main" targets were the people with scrap piled above the cab.....probably because they think it looks "dirty" or something. But who cares, focus on the criminals, not the people recycling stuff that gets thrown out!

PS, do you see any way to add a light to the 2410? Or do blowers with lights have a different kind of alternator on them?

My 2410 has the plug for the light on the side of the engine. I've also seen the oem pieces to do the upgrade if wanted. here's a link for the parts
