Picked Up 2 Vintage Blowers
I came across an ad on LetGo with a storage locker sale and these two Blowers were in the pictures as part of the sale...So I drove out to Saint Clair Mi to take a look at them. The story I was told was they were put away into storage in 1994 and have not been used sense, the man who paid monthly on the storage lockers had past away and they were selling the contents of the lockers. That's all the seller could tell me, so I offered him $60 a piece and they seller agreed.
Got them home a did a full look-see of them and was very happy to find they were stored without gas in them. Both had spark so I pulled the carbs and did a full fuel system clean out, did an oil change and replaced the spark plugs. I added gas and both started right up.....NICE! Both will need new belts and one needs a new friction wheel. I defiantly scored on these two. I will be restoring them.
Bolens 7hp Artic 75
Columbia 8hp Blizzard Buster
I have not done to much research on these, I know the Bolens brand but I have never come across a vintage Columbia snoblower.
