Heart breaking...10ML60

I saw this for sale locally and it just seems too far gone, what with the red paint and all. I have the parts to make it whole again, and probably could do it with my eyes closed after working on mine for the last few years, but it would be one ugly girl. Not to mention $125 is over the top for a pile of parts.

Ariens 10m L60 Snowblower

Thoughts? I may have to check it out just because it pains me to see a machine like that in that condition.

Cool well..

I know what you mean by not really wanting to see the old iron go away.. But I tend to believe their is a point where it just isn't feasible. At $125 and all the work needed, I'd walk away. The machine is worth $75 tops In that condition. Your basically buying a used motor and some parts. The valuable thing on them old ariens is the gear box assembly , now that one has a broken shaft. Most likely more damage inside the gear box too if it had that much torque come to a sudden stop. Bet it had bolts in rakes instead of shear bolts? I love them old Ariens and have had many (still own two) but I'd just spend $125 on a 'working' old girl. (Ariens that is).. just my humble opinion

by the looks of it it seems he's trying to get his money back form the motor, looks pretty new compared to the rest of the machine

Hopefully someone gets him down in price enough to make it worthwhile to make a shaft on their own or have a machine shop make one for them.

I would offer him $50 for the pile, see what he says..
he would be a fool not to take it, as he probably wouldn't get a better deal..

In his defense, you always have to start higher, because someone will negotiate either way.

Here is a $50 damaged ST350 in south Chicagoland if anybody lives nearby and wants a project.
