$825 or best offer!
Running!
1960's Snowblower - Make/model unknown.
New 13HP engine (see photo) installed 2 winters ago.
I used it once and decided it was too big for my property.
Due to it's MASSIVE size, it isn't easy to make tight turns.
Would be great for a long driveway/sidewalk or commercial situation.

Original engine included (I couldn't get it to run)

The overall tire height is 21"
The cutting width is 35"
The entire unit measures 84" from the front of the auger housing to the tip of the handlebars.

If you're reading this - IT'S STILL FOR SALE!

I hate shoveling SNOW!

Don't have any idea but you may want to check Pete's (spectrum) Gilson page and the extensive history of many types of blowers he has on his page. You just might find it on there.

Yea, I was thinking it looks like one of those old Simplicity Gravely type things.

Please direct all snow blower questions to the forums and not to me with PMs.

I was thinking a Gravely, but the bucket and auger doesn't look right?
Yep, his price is WAY off in my thinking, even with the 13 hp Predator on it.

I will watch it, should be listed for a long time.
Not far from my house.

One thing it should not need is chains for the 21" tires!

Looks like it could be a Simplicity. Don't know that they did it any favors by putting that engine on it, or themselves any by asking that price.

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