Someone is gonna buy this thing but unless it has gold plated trim it's not going to be me.
Not a bad looking blower but that price is going to be for a collector.

that's just crazy, I wouldn't pay that price for a single stage ford snowblower, ford didn't even make it. it seems that Jacobson made the two stage blowers for ford, I thought about getting one but the jakes seem to be lower in price that the fords

HEY JOE how come u have not invested in a POWERSHIFT YET???;);););););););););););)
Why? I have a 30', single width driveway. Most of the time last winter I just used my Toro ss.
I do have a Toro 521 in case we get something bad but I'm retired and the snow won't ever get too far ahead of me to warrant a bigger, fancier blower.
But, if you happen to be selling yours for cheap, and are willing to deliver it to me I may be interested:eek::eek::eek::eek::eek::eek::eek::eek::eek::eek::eek::eek::rolleyes:

toro made a powershift 624 :D
I'm not telling you to get one though. as you and I both know the 521 is a very capable machine and that William guy kinda talked you into getting the 521 :D

And I'm very grateful to that William guy for his advice. That 521 is a very nice blower.

That would be a smart thing to do. If you change your mind and want to return above ground, you could use it to burrow your way out.:eek:

Now we can actually have a gen -u- wine. FORD salamander heater (not working) to go with our extremely rare Ford blower! It can't get much better!:D

Here's it's big brother just sold on ebay:

Ford 826 much better deal at $108.25





That is a late 1970's Gilson made Ford snowblower. I have a Montgomery Ward 8/26 made by Gilson. Heavy duty steel body on it and a caste Iron auger gear box too. I wonder how that 8hp Briggs runs. Mine started pretty well it just burned oil and puffed blue smoke at times. I repowered it with a new engine and I really like the machine now

that engine is not the original one. because of the primer bulb up on top. they came along in the late 80's to early 90's.

I think you're looking at a dual shaft engine, not an easy clone to find. Being re-powered once over with apparent light use it should have decades of life left.

ON that 8-28 is a later BRIGGS engine 90's most likely. I do not see where you are getting those CLOWN ENGINES.
