History
I purchased this fine machine last winter 2016 in New Jersey for $195 dollars. From the looks of it, it originally had very little hours on it. One of the auger shear bolts is still orange from being sprayed at the plant! I removed the 7hp Tecumseh which lacked power for a machine this size and upgraded to a Predator 212cc engine. I sold the original engine and with the cost of the new engine the actual cost of the machine was only $5! Aside from the new skid shoes and new engine the machine is original.

Modifications

Drivetrain
212cc, 7 horsepower OHV A true 7 horses the power and torque on this engine makes this machine a beast.
It swallows up snow in a hurry and launches it 40 feet easy now. Doubling its original power!
Exterior
The machine will soon be getting a taller chute.
Machine came with tire chains.
Suspension
Differential to lock and unlock the wheels to use for other applications such a a lawnmower, mowing the lawn.
Wheel and Tire
The tires on this machine are larger than the standard 24" 10000 series. They are a bit wider and taller to handle the larger bucket. Standard from Ariens for the 32" wide machine.
