Question Ford ST 726 Help Needed

Hey everyone. Where do I find a manual for this unit? I tried searching for Jacobson and couldn't find anything there either.

Also, Anything I need to look out for with this unit? Weak points, common issues, etc?

Thanks

Try this listing on the Bay. I think a Jacobsen Imperial is the same basic machine. MH

Found a post here:

Jacobsen Imperial 626 Snowthrower Manual/Advice Needed - MyTractorForum.com - The Friendliest Tractor Forum and Best Place for Tractor Information

That says manuals are still available from Homelite.
you could also email "blue8star" and he would probably still email you a copy, even though the thread is 3 years old..

On a side note I got to use it for the first time today
We had approx 3 inches of wet snow drop over the night. Not sure if it was because it was heavy or what but it didn't really throw the snow very far. I'm guessing 8' on average. I do need to up the top end rpms a little. It was running around 3200 -3300

I contacted the guy on ebay who sells manuals. According to him mine is made by gilson. I again went to the gilson site and couldnt find any info. Now sure what direction to go.

He is wrong..
we already determined that your Ford is a Jacobson, not a Gilson.
this is not uncertain or in doubt!
Its 100% confirmed..

unfortunately all you can do is keep searching for a Jacobson Imperial manual..
how about this one:




Its hard to tell how close of a match it might be for your Ford, but for $5.95 and free shipping,
you dont have a lot to lose!

all you can do is keep searching ebay:

ford snowblower manual

ford 726 manual

jacobson imperial manual

The ford search will probably bring up a lot of Ford/Gilson hits, which you wont want..
but you might get lucky and find your Ford/Jacobson manual.

The manual is out there! somewhere..
you happened to come across a rather obscure and rare snowblower model,
which is making the hunt for a manual quite difficult..
but if you keep searching im confidant you will find one eventually..

ebay is probably the only place you will find one..

Thanks. Yes it is very confusing.

This was the manual (and guy) I was talking to on ebay. Seemed to be one of the better hits. Jacobson Imperial Snowblower Thrower Manuals | eBay

I will keep searching. If I could cross reference my model # into a jacabson #, that would help a lot.
