CL: Have you noticed how many machines for sale now !!??

It's amazing how many machines are for sale now. New stuff, old stuff, a bit of everything. The number of offerings is growing every day in my area. Looks like a great time to scoop up that spare machine

I've noticed the same thing!

"This snowblower just got me through a season of record snowfall... I think I'll get rid of it!"

~1994 Ariens 924084 (ST1032) "papa bear": restored, re-engined, real nice!
1991 Ariens 924050 (ST824) "mama bear"
Toro PowerCurve 1800 "baby bear"

Be alert! America needs more lerts.

same here- this happens every year, but seems the areas (like here) that got less snow fall the numbers are more so.

some just don't want to store a snowblower all summer and others are willing to chance that they won't need a snowblower next winter

people who see their neighbors clearing the driveway with a snowblower, convince themselves they can do that too...they buy a machine, use it a few times, it has a few problems like clogging up with slush, getting a rock or newspaper stuck in it, then it won't start, and they also find out running a snowblower is a nice winter exercise workout in the outdoors, and turning a machine takes some upper body strength, then the wind blows the snow back on you at times, turning the operator into a walking snowman...then it may get stuck or stall, and be hard to restart, or get unstuck...and God forbid it fouls a plug, or breaks a drive belt...

and they sell it.

that's what I like about snowblowers....usually it separates the men from the boys...

Or they don't realize the motor would last a whole lot longer if they put oil in it...

Or they grabbed whatever they could and now they're selling it because they're looking at a bright shinny new one for next fall

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