Talking 1961 Ariens Sno Thro vs Blizzard of 2015

Well I made the first pass earlier this morning and my wife filmed it as it was my first run with the machine. It works just as good as the day it was made. I"ll have to go out again as we are setting up for another 6-10 on the backside of the storm.

Looks awesome Ryan! Snow is no match for the old Ariens! Great video, so glad you're using the old girl.

Good job on a bunch of snow!
Just an aside... It may be a good idea tuck the ends of your scarf in. There a too many spinning things that may, however unlikely, grab the end of it and pull your face into an unpleasant situation. Just my opinion.

Ryan, nice little video.

It's great to see there is machinery from an era when things were 'built to last' still providing duty.

Awesome! Good to see the old girl being used and doing it well. And none of that silly modern safety junk.

This is the 3.5 HP? Even more amazing.

I agree, it's great to see a vintage machine doing it's job. Sounds like it's barely laboring.
