My first snowblower, now owned by my neighbor

It is a 9 hp Techumseh powered 26" I believe.

Hehe, yes the backup is close


Last year when we had even more snow, since most people buy shitty snowblowers I had to do the blowing for 5 neighbors the worst day. Of course I could not be more happy, feeling like a real man

Thanks, it is a nice little neighborhood without traffic, good for kids. (except for those blowers)
Landly with access straight into the Woods, but still Close (20 miles) from Oslo.

Hi, I live in Norway, a Place called Asker.


It is well known for being a "snowhole" (a place with a lot of snow)
