That one has been for sale for over a year..
I think they were asking $200 last winter.
(I live in Rochester..I have seen it on Craigslist for awhile!)
Its missing some sheetmetal, which is obvious from the home-made replacement..although that appears to be the only piece missing..
I dont know how hard it would be to find the replacement part.
(probably fairly difficult)

IMO, $100 is an "ok" price..not too high, but not a bargain either..
I wasnt interested when I first saw it, just because of the missing metal.

Hey everyone,
I just uploaded a HUGE update to the Snowbird page!
The page has probably doubled in size.
photos of Eleven new snowbirds have been added!
plus lots of new data on model numbers, features etc.

Thanks to Ari, Dave B, Jeff R, Tim P, Michael D, Bob D, Big Ed, Alan K, Damon R, and James B. for all the new photos!

The updated page:
Snowbird Snowblowers

Wheres your bird decal Tim?

On the 262 (next picture after Tim's), Anyone know what the white and red thing is on the top cover by the shift lever?


Scot did you get my note?
Copy and paste,
THAT ROUND BIRD DECAL ON YOUR SITE IS OFF OF A S-262'S FRONT COVER WHERE THE PULL ROPE IS.

That is where that round snow bird came from, the one on your site that I questioned a while back.

Now if I could only find a FB model.
I would be the number 1 Snow Bird owner, somewhere, someplace, someone must have one.
I will give the pickers a call and tell them to be on the lookout for a FB model.

I hate shoveling SNOW!

For the benefit of this forum, here is a post I just made on the yahoo snowbird forum. (the yahoo snowbird forum, and this snowbird forum on snowblowerforums.com, are the only two places on the internet where Snowbirds are being discussed)

Thanks everyone!

glad you are enjoying the page!

Jim and Ari,
looks like you did in fact discover a "missing link"! awesome!
(this is why I make these pages!

The manual Ari found:

Yard-Man Snow Thrower Operating Manual And Parts List | ManualsOnline.com



Is the model 7020-0. I did have that model number listed on the webpage, as a "Gen 2" model,
but I didnt know anything about it..The manual has a date of 1973 on the last page,
which is 2 years before the MTD takeover. So we can confidently call this a "Gen 2" model..
but it is clearly a transitional model..The original snowbird (Gen 1) bucket and auger drive system
still appears to be in place, but the tractor unit is now no longer the Gen-1 design, and they have
transitioned to that unusual "side drive" out of the side of the tractor! I suspect there were not many models made with this system. I do have a notation that MTD closed the original "George" plant when they took over the Yardman/Snowbird line in 1975, so I suspect that was the date when they moved over to a "traditional" friction disk drive..So its likely this "transitional" model 7020 (and others like it, if there are other models) probably only existed for a few short years in the early 70's..Thanks for the cool discovery! I will get this new information added to the page soon..
thanks,
Scot
