What year is my Jacobsen Imperial 626

I found these serial numbers on the back of my new 626 Imperial, but can not seem to figure it out what year it is? The website seems to only support pre 1975. I am pretty sure mine is a late 70s version. 52638 T 28708.


Any thoughts on year or other information would be great.


Jon (Colorado) Thx

Welcome from Morrison !!!

If it has the original engine, that might be an easier way to date it. Post the numbers off the engine.
Also, does it say just Jacobsen (1970's & earlier) or Homelite/Jacobsen (1980's).
Which of these does it look like ?
1st pic is either 1970's or early 80's
2nd pic is 1968
3rd pic is 1980's

All I can say is if you do an impeller kit on that Jacobsen there isn't a snowblower made that will stand up to it.......I've had two.

Here is my Jacobsen Imperial 626 I don't know what year mine is either. I have to put an impeller kit on mine when I get a chance to make it throw better.

I would think late 60's to early 70's before OSHA did away with that style bucket.
