Maybe I am oblivious (wouldn't be the first time), but I've NEVER seen a snowblower like this one...looks primitive!

Here's the craigslist listing:

"I have a vintage snow blower craftsman 18 model # 53682125 with metal wheels 150.00 obo.It needs some work,It's been sitting for years. Joe"

Craftsman 18 snow blower

Thoughts?

Happy New Year!

Yea, there was one of these on here within the past month. It's the model where when it stops running, just add some wood or charcoal and use it as a smoker.

Search for Homko.

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

At least the wheels will work for awhile , but they should be mounted with coil springs.

If you browse the Vintage Showcase you will find a similar Craftsman machine and other variations on that theme.
