I believe this "Series 6" model is circa ~2000 and the last of the line before Snapper was purchased by Simplicity/Briggs.

Things I like about it:

Simple no frills design,

The bucket and auger ribbons are of heavier gauge steel

There are zerks in all the right places,

There is very little space in between the impeller blades and the housing, and the chute is fairly tall so it probably throws far

Carlisle X-Trac tires are available in this size when the time comes,

A Predator 6.5 should bolt right on if the Tecumseh expires

Looks like you got your DeLorean up to 88mph and traveled back to 2000 to buy a new one !!!


Well done !!!

I think it may have a duel pulley Tecumseh by looking at how wide the belt cover so a engine swap down the road may not be so easy,But that Tecumseh May out last us and looks either not used or really well taken care of so many many more years of use to go.

Sno-Tek Modded, 15"X-Track tires (Now has same X-Track tires but 13"x4" for better fit), 254cc engine LED light and hand warmers.
Snapper 6/22 sold but not forgotten. Was my first.
Ariens ST1027LE workhorse and going strong.
New 2017 Ariens Deluxe completely rebuilt after losing a fight with a forklift.

The engine runs great so there are no plans to change it out. But if anything happens she's a single shafty...

BTW it was $350 delivered to my house.

Not a steal, but it's clean and should compliment my Preda-Tor 5/24 well.

Still a good deal, miss my snapper but it was only a 6/22 and needed bigger but was heavy duty and a great machine.
