Hi guys, New member here just thought i'd say a quick hi.
Just got into snowblowers this year. Sick and tired of depending
on someone to plow my driveway. So i thought i would look for
a good used blower. After doing a little research a had my heart
set on a JD 1032, I just like vintage stuff. Well i missed out on
one locally and then found a TRS32. Went and looked at it and
was very clean so it came home with me. Then i found out the
reviews weren't all that great. On the hunt for a 1032 again.
Found one 1.5 hrs away but the seller was very slow to reply to
emails. At that time i found an awsome blower in sweet condition.
Craftsman 1032 drift Breaker with the dual headlights. This blower
came home and is my favorite. Then the seller of the JD 1032
finally replied and i went and looked at it. Well it came home too.
So now i have three so lets hope for some good snow to try them
out.
I also put a wanted add for a JD 1032 just after buying the TRS 32
and bought a parts one that just needs a motor. It is missing. So on
the hunt and i will give it a full resto. So if anyone knows of a good
original motor, "prefer the original yellow one", shoot me a pm.


Regards Lee

Thanks guys, Ya kinda got hit quick with this snowblower thing
but when i was young i got into small engines and worked for a
couple lawn mower shops. Over the past 14 years or so been
really into collecting vintage muscle chainsaws and now have
around 500 or so. So the small engine thing isn't new to me.

Maybe you can Frankenstein all three together and have a 90" wide one swipe monster. I mean welcome to the forum.

HS 928 TCD. It's Canadian eh! (Sure I'm done modifying it, for now, until next time.......)

Welcome to SBF. Sounds like you caught the bug a long time ago and are just now getting around to the snowblower part of the virus

Did you say, 500 chain saws?

Did we tell you we like pictures? You get a chance, share some of your new toys and collections.

I'm pretty much retired from the forum thing, but I check in every now and then.
