po32j is probably the model number.
and 121485 is probably the serial number, unique to that one unit.

googling po32j:

https://www.google.com/search?q=po32...UTF-8#q=po32j+

Says its a 1032, (10HP engine, 32 inch wide bucket.)

and a thread here:
https://www.snowblowerforum.com/forum...re-1032-a.html

shows that its a model built before 1991, and built by JD themselves, before JD began outsourcing their snowblower production.
almost certainty from sometime in the 1980's.

So! its a big JD 1032, a beast! made by JD themselves in the 1980's.
(or possibly in 1990 or 1991)

A nice unit!
those "original JD" machines are fan favorites.

Look for a data tag with numbers on the side of the engine, note if its a Tecumseh or a Briggs engine,
and post any and all numbers on the engine tag..they often contain a date code that can pin-point the model year.

rhal. Here is a link to the John Deere service manual for your machine. It is 33 meg in size and could take some time to download.

Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.
