Honda, ariens, or Toro. But seriously, you need to give us an idea of your size of driveway, material, and the slope. Plus...how deep are your pockets ?

That sounds high for a 25 yr old snowblower. I would guess that $300-400, depending on condition.

As far as your needs, sounds like a wheeled blower with about 10 hp would fit your needs. I would go with either Ariens or Toro and about 10-15 yrs old. You should be able to get that for about $400-500 depending its condition. When you find one, you can post photos on this site, to get opinions of buy/pass.

What is up with the 1132 powershift?
Is it a possibility or a no and why?

If it runs ok and goes thru the gears fine I'd be a player at $400.

Agree. Later, you could mess with the power shift if you get bored. Maybe you could get it for $350 if you use the power shift card

For a minute I thought you were going to use an oxy acetelane torch on it already. He just got it home and he had to pull out the torch, omg.
Non ethanol fuel is fine.

yep, good machine, very well built. There may be some issues, but once resolved that snowblower will last forever if maintained. 1995 model. Parts diagrams and manuals, including proper lubricants, etc here:
