Before I retired, I bought and rebuilt quite a few blowers especially the old Murray built Craftsmans with the gear transmissions. I cherry picked parts and built a couple of special 5 HP Craftsman blowers for the day my kids bought a house. Well that day has finally come with my youngest. She and her fiance just bought a house and she asked if I had an extra blower (which I'm pretty sure she knew I did). It's big enough to move what snow I expect they'll get but small enough she should be able to handle it (actually I think she's more mechanically inclined than her fiance). I made sure that the blowers had electric starters for the girls so they could start them as needed on their own.
Even though I'd built this one over 5 years ago, did a little carb work and put a tube in one of the tires then gased it up and it fired right up first time and ran it around the yard without a problem (I think the neighbors thought I was crazy).
This daughter was the one when little that would spend time with me in the shop and tinker on things with Dad so I know it's going to a good home.
Just thought I'd do a little bragging about myn youngest daughter.

Your a good dad for sure. I did the same for my Son, I gave him my best blower I had at the time my Airens Compact 24. He's used it once but when the big one hits and it will, he will thank me that night. Ya, I got another Compact 24, for myself again LOL.
