I can get one of these for 25 bucks max
not sure but i dont think they sell for much
dont see myself using it but i dont want it to go to the scrapper
part of me wants to fix it and put and impeller kit on it
i think i would invest more then its worth restoring it
motor runs
gear selector is frozen
what does anybody think?
should i grab it so it doesnt get scrapped?

Great Snowblowers. You Need to Squeeze the Clutch to Shift it. If it is still Stuck, Cleaning/Sanding the Hex Shaft Fixes that. Sounds like a Cheap Hobby "Toy". Be Careful, They "Multiply". I have Quite a Few of Them.

For $25, I'd give it a shot even though I'm currently unemployed and have no room nor need for a third blower!

I own 5 lawn mowers...I got 4 for free, all they needed was the carbs cleaned out (every one has roughly the exact same engine). I'll never buy a new lawn mower again...

Sometimes, yard machines just need a little attention and love and they come back to life.

Any working engine is typically worth at least $25 and everything else is gravy. If it can be made to work, so much the better.
I'd go for it.
