Jd 828d

Hey guys. Just picked up an older (98 or 99) JD 828D. Came from a buddy of mine whose grandmother went shopping for what his dad thought was a small single stage blower. She just "had to have" the big one. Anyway she basically never used it as my buddy is a farmer and has always taken his truck with a blade and done their Snow removal for them. Anyway this blower has basically seen 0 use and has just sat from year to year minus my buddy draining and putting fresh gas in it every year with sea foam, running it for a while and then changing the oil. He finally has gotten tired of storing it and put it up for sale. I decided to pick it up as my old mtd is getting pretty worn out as it is.

Just wondering what i should do before the next snowfall to ensure this blower is ready to finally get some use. I do intend to change the oil as he hasn't done that this year yet.

Beyond that I'm not totally sure what to do/check/replace/etc before we get our next Snow.

Also. Anyone with info on these blowers that they'd like to share is much appreciated. Never owned a JD blower so pretty clueless to them besides the engine. Same engine on my MTD.

I forgot to mention that's as soon as I'm able to post pictures I'll put some up from the ad. The pictures will really truly show the very minimal use of this machine.

I'll try and grab a serial number after I get it cleaned up. It's got about 20 years of storage dust on it haha. Where's the serial number located?

*disregard, was meant for this post https://www.snowblowerforum.com/forum...-engage-3.html
*although the blowers here are also Ariens built and easier to find parts and manuals through Ariens
You can make parts and service a lot easier knowing those are essentially Ariens 932 series blowers with very slight JD spec'd differences. Usually the biggest difference is JD numbers and parts prices.
JD typically charges for service manuals also. You can find the Ariens service manual here:
http://apache.ariens.com/manuals/00438200_ENG.pdf
Typical parts searches will be close to this model:
