Signature snow thrower?

I am trying to help a friend via e-mail with their snow thrower.

He sent me a picture of the name plate and it is made by Signature in Jackson TN. He thought is was purchased at Sears. But he really does not know as it was given to him.

I went on several sites that have decent parts look up and I can't find a Signature brand. I could not get any useful hits by inputting the Model number. I then tried MTD, Simplicity and Craftsman to see if the Model number would spark anything.

I did see there was a similar post a few years ago with a similar question but no definitive answer was posted.

Any ideas where I can get more info on this machine?

Thanks in advance.

The other language on the nameplate reminds me of French. My guess is maybe this was a Canadian model?

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

I Googled the address in the ID tag, it is or was a Murray facility.

Smart idea! The real question is who would have thought of building snowblowers in Tennessee?

It's sort of like a clothing manufacturer producing their bathing suits in Alaska.

Here is a picture. It is labeled a Signature Series 825.

I think it is a Murray as suggested. I did find some other references connecting Signature to Murray and also Noma.

I went on to Parts Tree and some similar sights and could not find this Model number under Murray, Noma or anywhere.

I also went on the Murray website and it was not helpful.

The address in TN is now listed as a publishing company. Looks like it could have been a good size factory and warehouse from the picture.

Thanks to everyone who has replied with their input.

If anyone has a source to a manual or parts list that would be awesome.

My next step is to call Murray and see what telephone support can offer.

Thanks!

Murray is part of BASCO, a Briggs and Stratton Company. The model number might not come up using their current site, so, like you said, calling them might be a good idea.

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

824, Please post what you find out as there is another thread with a Signature and it looks like info on them is very scarce.

.
Make sure the windows are up before the snow plow goes by !!
