Wow. That looks great. Was it ever used? It does not appear to be one of the Murray versions.

Real nice blower and it's in fantastic condition. No. It's not a Murray machine. I believe the Murray machines were the TRS/TRX models. You should be happy with it.

Thanks guys. Yeah it was used since new. The owner just took amazing care of it. I currently have an 828D which I think is a 7/10 for condition but the replacement is perfect... below is my first one.

So are these Ariens versions?
I still can't get over the condition. Look at the reflections in the paint for Pete's sake.

Congrats a good find in good condition. A new scraper bar and maybe a set of ArmorSkids and you're good to go. Best of luck with it.

These were built by Ariens, yes. A step up from the Murray Built TRS models but just as big and bulky vs the more modern stuff, but will last a looooooong time if you keep on top of it. Only weak link on these is the non-adjustable carb. I replaced ours (church group) with one of the chinese $15.00 ones a few weeks ago and good to go. Ariens also did a superb job with the painting too, as you have already noticed.

Yea it's an ariens version. They have 2 different bucket styles. One that is shapes like a circle and a bump for drift guards and this one. I saw the reflection and was sold immediately.

I was looking into skids and the scraper bar looks ok to me what are you seeing that I'm missing.
