Probably no one here recognizes it by that model number..
there arent a lot of specifics known about individual Simplicity models..

however some googling brought up this:

http://download.snowblowerguide.com/...i%208560ex.jpg

which says its from about the year 2005..
(and could be newer..we dont know how long that particular model was made..but its most likely 2005 to 2008 time frame)
should be a fine machine!
post some photos if you can!

I have that exact same snowblower. I bought it brand new about 4 years ago and have been very happy with it.
You need to check the shift linkage if first gear does not pull consistently. Just yesterday I had the bottom cover off and found that in first, the friction wheel was just about centered on the drive disc, which renders it useless in that gear. The manual says that the lower shift rod is spring loaded, but mine was not. I will have to check with the dealer to see if the spring is missing, or if only similar models have it.
I also extended the lever that the drive cable attaches to to give it more travel. This may or may not have been necessary now that the shifter is adjusted. I don't see how it can hurt though, since the cable is attached to the lower lever via a spring.
Good luck with yours.
