If the first picture is the one you are looking at, it has the serrated auger. It seems like they were in the later models. Others will know what years.

Power shifts are as close to bullet proof as you can get. Do the maintenance and they will run forever.

If I can't fix it, I can screw it up so bad that no one else can either!

You are right, after looking closer it has serrated auger.

Was looking at that specific model bcus the snow is very packed in front of the house about 30 feet wide and on both sides of my car port, so I need something a bit heavy to plow through.

note the grease fittings on the legs are my own doing as the bushings like to seize to the axle and spin other wise making the legs bad . it's a easy do and helps retain the bushings
Nice mod if I get it will do the same mod.

Weird that the back of the snow blower is oppenned like that ??

to do the mod the legs have to come off, drilled though so the grease can go in,
open that way as the powershift needs all that room to move front and back, . serrated augers came about around?? 1990 my 88 didn't my 97 did have

wish my powermax was built as well as the old powershift's , the old ones are night and day made better, real machines for hard work not like todays box store grade.
OP's got a 25 year old machine that IS IN better shape than my 3 year old . make me wonder more if the loncin clone motor will be running like that old tech can in another 2 years
GOOD LUCK OP
