His description is a copy / paste from the advertisement for the machine.
Does it have a 5" discharge chute or a 6" one :confused:

They don't all come out of the box running great and operating well. There are lemons across the spectrum of manufacturers. I wouldn't buy one of these but if it is maintained well and not subjected to too heavy use it would probably get the job done. $1500 is nuts. Maybe $400 at most and then he'd have to deliver it, fill it w/gas. Have a couple qts. of good oil, new set of spare belts and spare drive disc.

That's only about one or two hundred less then what they sold for new.

This guy is selling one and it's not broken for $950 asking, and out on the east coast too !!

15 HP 36'' Stanley Commercial Snowblower

When Sears and the big box guys pull then from sales you know there was a problem.
I wonder where you go for parts or if you even can get parts ??

Interesting it's already had the coil and ignition switch replaced. :confused:

Probably figured out what a POS the machine is and is cutting his losses. And trying to minimize his losses with that asking price. Quite the optimist.

Read his description, Coby. He says it's the gears and not a shear pin.

He also said he is not mechanically inclined, one side works and he THINKS it is the gears. :)

how is it worthless? it is just a shear pin most likely?
Edited....ok i looked at the ad again and yes the guy said its the gearbox and not the shear pin , so yes maybe not worth it.
