new to the forum

Howdy, I just picked up a Ford ST 726 off Craigslist. This thing is in mint shape. Heck the paint barely has any scratches.

It's probably too big for what I need but I like the color and the rarity of the ford's.

Is there s servicing manual available anywhere on these? Anything I should know about or look out for?

Thanks

It was probably made by Gilson.

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

Welcome to the forum.
I'm seconding this. Probably a Gilson. They made some fine stuff back in the day.
Snap a few pics for us.

Welcome, I had never gave it a thought that Ford sold snowblowers. Is it Ford blue?

It is true that most Ford snowblowers are Gilsons..
however, this one is not a Gilson!
it's a Jacobson.
