I have one also and if your thinking of buying I wouldn’t, That is the one they put the horrible plastic rims on, Made around 1994

I’m actually selling it and people are asking what year it is. I bought it used like 5 yrs ago.

Hoping the rims are in good shape as they crack and no easy replacements are available, I am a machinist and managed to get some steel rims that fit the stubby axles and drilled holes to bolt them on but was not overly easy but other than that it’s a pretty good blower

The rims seem ok but the wheels have a lot if play where they attach the axles. The whole machine wobbles when rolling. I tried to tighten the nuts that hold them on but they start to strip. Seems like the rest of the bolt isn’t threaded.

That’s how mine were also, found some metal rims that fit the axle and drilled them to put the bolt in but still a little loose but much better than the plastic wheels, I have another set I’m going to try to see if they fit the axles a little better.

Many of those plastic rims were actually recalled years ago ... safety hazard with rims exploding upon filling them with air ....
