I just replaced my 1974 "Snow Thrower" that's the name on it, no other brand with a Cub Cadet 526SWE. Back then I had a new E250 Chateau Ford van. The old snow thrower had only two foward gears and no reverse. It was solid steel and was very heavy. I used two 1" X 12" X 6' boards and just ran the thing up in through the Van's side doors.
