Looks like an older MTD to me. Difficult to tell with the poor picture angle.

Please direct all snow blower questions to the forums and not to me with PMs.

If it is...anything to look or specifically? Problem areas? I will try to get model info. I was pricing new blowers today. We are getting pounded in Pittsburgh and it's crazy what the prices are for new ones. I am not entirely convinced they are built well-despite the price.

You will find many fans of old machines here. Most of us are running machines from the 60s and 70s. There are a few from the 80s. I am really like my old 77 Ariens. I don't have much experience with other blowers though. I would stay away from newer MTD stuff unless you get a good deal. (MTD, Yard Man, Yard Machines, Cub Cadet, Troy Bilt, most Craftsman)

Ariens, Toro and Honda are the top 3 recommended brands here. The other brands are mostly a mix of quality and you have to know exactly what you are looking at to know if it is good quality or just cheap junk.

Yes..look the other way!
With an abundance of used snowblowers to choose from, there is no reason to buy an older MTD, when you can do better..(and I dont mean "an abundance" from that one seller specifically..I just mean an abundance in general..)

For used, I would recommend sticking with Ariens, Toro, Honda, or Simplicity...even though older MTD's can be fine, (and with MTD "the older the better") I still wouldnt recommend one, when the alternatives are better..
