The seller is supposed to send me some additional photos later today.
Never seen anything like it, unless it's some sort of frankenblower.

I have a few more pics...





I've determined the model name is "Super Snow Jet Auger Plow" and vintage 1960's as far as I can tell.
Looks like a complicated design and I'm certain replacement parts are not available.
I just thought I'd post it here for posterity.

According to the model and serial number look up on this web site, it's a 1970, 26" Imperial Snow Jet.

Hit & Miss Model's Jacobsen serial number lookup for products made before 1975

There is one shown in the bottom right of the pictures on this 1963 Jacobsen brochure on ebay.

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

The official model name is "Super Snow Jet Auger Plow" from 1964.

A few more pics...





I may be up up near the seller Sunday or Monday and have a look at it, just for kicks.

Thanks for sharing.
Did Jacobsen make that engine or had they given up on that by this time?
I see you need to bring a length of rope to start this one of you don't have 110 for the electric start.

I noticed the lack of a recoil assembly also.
I think Jacobsen stopped building their own in the late 60's, perhaps early 70's, but don't quote me on that.
I think they were still making their own 2 strokes when this blower was made though. Not sure about 4 strokes.

The seller stated that the engine was a tecumseh.

I might just have a look at it tomorrow. Looks like a big single stage to me.
I don't think there is an impeller.
