Anyone have one of these or used this design in the past? I am thinking about purchasing the one in the photo.

Looks like the old paddle wheel design used by the early Simplicity and Bob-Cat blowers. Never used them myself, but I heard they work well.

Its not much at all. I was just reading they are difficult to move around. I would love it but I have a small area The unit is in excellent condition.

I got one this Fall as a trash pick. A new fuel line and a little adjustment of the 5hp(?) Briggs is all it needed. That thing can sure throw a ton. I need to do an oil change and some greasing before I'd run it much more.

I had the 5hp version of this blower. A great machine! Only downfall is it only has two speeds slow and slower.......

That looks like my first free snow-blower. I called that a long frame. I think mine has a 6hp motor. Need to clean the carb and replace the fuel line. It does work well, but it doesn't turn on a dime.

Wow only a 5hp and it can throw a ton. I had to put a 7hp Predator on my snow blower plus an impeller kit before it made it into a great thrower. I am restoring an old Montgomery Ward (Gilson) 8hp/26 inch Unitrol from the mid 1970's. I will put an impeller kit because the space varies from as little as a quarter inch near the back of the impeller to as much as 1/2 to almost 3/4 of an inch in the front of the impeller near the scoops. I am trying to get rid of the rust and I am using a product called Evaporust and a Chemical rust remover gel. Both are working only not as fast as I would like them. The impeller had somewhat heavy to moderate surface rust, but it is a real tank and the metal is so much thicker than a new snow blowers metal would be so It will be a real beast with the 8 Hp Briggs on it.
