Ryobi 9.5 hp 26" 2 stage???

Anyone here ever hear of such a machine?

I have a coworker that knows nothing about maintenance. He said he picked up this snow blower from Costco about 6 years ago and has never did ANYTHING to it, not even change the oil. He asked for my help and to show him. I told him I would help him out tomorrow.

I asked him (via text) what kinda of machine he has, that I could research out what I was getting myself into. Thinking it was MTD or Troy Built being he is very, very cheap. He just text me and said it was a "Ryobi single hand operator 9.5 hp, 26" 2 stage blower". Not a clue what "single hand operator" is. I have been googleing the he11 outta this and not coming up with anything. Soooooo I thought I would toss it out here to the experts.

I would ask him to send me a couple photo's, but like I said, he is cheap, and still runs a flip phone from 2004.

Can anyone help me on this one?

Wish me luck tomorrow!

Maybe single hand operator just means it has an interlock on the controls?

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

Yea, I was kinda thinking of that also, but then I saw a you tube video of a snowblower attachment for a weed whip, so i thought about that, but no way in he11 would that be 26" 2 stage 9.5 hp.

Should be interesting tomorrow.

You mean the old timer Jim, with the huskey from Lowes?

Not stalking him. The ball is in his court right now. I'm sure he will call once he has 5 hours on it, looking for help with the oil change.

When I see the word "Ryobi" I often think "Sears" because so many of their power tools are rebadged Ryobi low-end models...but darn...I have never heard of a Ryobi snowblower.

I think Buzzard is correct. Quick search finds MTD bought Ryobi in 2000.
I found repair clinic lists parts including a friction disc for Ryobi the part number starts with "973.xxxxx" like a craftsman or MTD code.
Only other thing I was thinking is the guy has a Roper and misstexted
(say that 5 times fast)
Costco would make sense for Ryobi as they and HD were listed as point of sale retailers for them.
