Greetings friends....last week a high school classmate dropped off a 74 Ariens, complete but rough....he was going to get it running but lost interest. This is a model I liked because it was the last year of the 10000 series, and had a drive lever that engaged the wheels when squeezed instead of when let go of, and the auger engagement lever was up where an operator could engage it from the dashboard. I rushed the finish work on it to get it ready for tomorrows storm...still got to strip and paint the belly pan, wheels, and chute. I had a junk pressure washer I stole the Chondra from, did a new belt, some paint, new scraper and skids, and an impeller kit. This will be going to my girl friends house so I don't have to hump a blower over to help her clear her long drive way with her Craftsman...I'll finish the pretty stuff after the season.

Those are some fairly shiny handlebars you swapped on there. Those are unicorns where I live.

I almost bought a parts machine this fall just for the handlebars. If it hadn't been 150 miles away, I would have.
