I have to say that this little guy is as useful as any out there corded today. I am looking for another S-140 chassis to make another as it's chain driven and throw slush like nobodies business!!! I'm glad to be hear as I know some of you have run across these at one time or another. If you have one of these it's worth the time to restore and keep one handy. This one use to belong to a rental and was stored with oil in its cylinder I use synthetic oil and doesn't make me smell to bad.
