Miscellaneous Brands

I'd like to suggest a new category in the brand specific area. Something for the unusal or orphan brand machines, like my Snow Bird.

Probably not what your wanting to hear but you already said it "brand specific"

Maybe try the general catagory

I also suggested a snowbird category awhile back..
and I was also greeted by the sound of chirping crickets!
guess there isnt a big enough of a following..

(and yes, technically Snowbird can be lumped under the MTD umbrella..
but the original, classic snowbirds have nothing to do with MTD, and IMO they rate their own sub-forum, apart from MTD..)

Snowbird Snowblowers

What is the purpose of that side arm from the auger housing to the wheel.

sscotsman your 224 looks like it could use some new rubber?
Can you still get the snowbird decals if you're redoing one?

I hate shoveling SNOW!

I just watched the video, the rubber is fine compared to the rest of it.

How hard is it to get parts for a 1961 Snowbird?

That would make sense, chain drive.

Thanks for the reply, maybe others thought I was kidding when I asked?

My little Craftman 5/22 only has the belts.
You don't ask you don't learn.
