Snow Bird Webpage.

Hey everyone, I have started a Snow Bird webpage!
It's in its early stages right now, very incomplete!

If anyone has any photos, or drawings (manuals) or suggestions, corrections, data, history, anything at all, I would love to hear about it!

If anyone wants to share photos of their Snowbird for the webpage, I would love to have them! You will have your name and a "photo credit" on the page..

For my Ariens snowblower page, I realized that not everyone would want their *full* name on the page..(for privacy reasons, and for security reasons)..So I never use anyones full last name..I just say things like "Here is a nice Model 225 owned by Jason K. of Erie, PA"..things like that..I will do the same for the Snowbird page..

Here is the page:
Snowbird Snowblowers

thanks,
Scot

If one is ever made, it probably wont be by me!
I am already up to three brands (Ariens, Snow-Bird, Wheel Horse tractor, and I still want a Cub Cadet tractor!
That will be it! I will probably never own a Toro..
Someone might make a Toro page someday though..

i've been looking at some toro WH 520's but i don't know enough about tractors to just go buy one and everyone i talk to says to make sure it comes with all the attachments you think you need
i've though about a toro snowblower page since i looked at your ariens page but not sure how to get one together

'doh! I just noticed a major "bug" in the formatting of my webpage!
(I learned HTML about 15 years ago! my skills are out of date..and I dont know CSS..I need to learn it..)

For people using Firefox, its all fine..displaying normally.
For people using Internet Explorer, the page isnt displaying correctly!
(stupid Microsoft!

The background image for the tables isnt displaying at all in Internet Explorer..
which is ok for most of the tables, because they have a default white background..
but for the "Generation 1" table, for a reason I cant figure out yet, the background isnt white! its red..which means all the text in that table is "invisable" because its the same color as the background! You can see it if you highlight the text, or right-click on the page and choose "select all"..which will then make all the text readable..

Sorry about that! I will get it fixed with the next update, which should be coming in a few days..(I should have checked it in IE before I uploaded the page! rookie mistake..)

The Snowbird model FB is believed to be the first Snowbird model,
from 1958. The source for that information is a 1968 document that is hosted on the snowbird yahoo forum:

groups.yahoo.com/group/SnowBirdSnowblowers/files/SB Mdl,Specs,Dates.PDF

(you might have to be a member of that forum for the link to work..if it doesnt open for you, this is the forum:
groups.yahoo.com/group/SnowBirdSnowblowers )

Being an actual Snowbird or Snowbird/Yardman document from 1968, I would consider it very reliable..(I don't doubt the existence of the FB)

I have found photos or drawings for all the early models except the FB.
Google also can not come up with anything about the FB on the entire internet!

Has anyone ever seen a photo, drawing, owners manual, etc. for the model FB?

thanks,
Scot
