I picked up one that "runs fine but auger has some issues."
I only posted the two freebies because if there was a free blower in my neighborhood and I had the same/similar model, I would take it for the parts.

"runs fine but auger has some issues."

That usually means the auger gear case is damaged. A pretty costly and time consuming job, especially with rust-welded augers.

I do the same thing. I have dismantled machines and shelve the parts for future use on other units. I repair so many, that having extra parts available always comes in handy.

Unfortunately, most people don't have the time or the room to store this stuff. I am fortunate in both categories, although I must admit, room is now becoming tight .... :)
