A new page has been created! :)
Page 14, about the Ariens Manorway tractor:

https://scotlawrence.github.io/ariens/manorway.html

I dont own a Manorway, but I am (very casually) looking for a 1969 Manorway that I could perhaps someday restore.
It's low on the priority list! (Im looking for a second Wheel Horse tractor first.)
But maybe someday I could find a '69 Manorway. (I would only want a '69, because that was the year I was born)

I have/had an account on "mytractorforum"..I will post it there too.

Hey everyone,
Back on December 1st, post #96 in this thread, I talked about how my long-time webpage host was having major issues...well, today my old pages died for good.
its unlikely they are ever coming back. I have been in the process of moving my pages for months now, anticipating this was likely to happen, but I havent gotten to the Ariens or Snowbird pages yet..im moving everything here:

http://www.scotlawrence.com

My Ariens page is going to be down for awhile, probably a few weeks..but! I have the whole thing archived and backed up!
its not gone forever..its just going to take a little time to get it all re-uploaded with a new host.

For anyone interested in such things, I have deceided to go with Github. I think that will work for what I need...all my photos are hosted on Smugmug, so the bandwidth through Github should be minimal, since only the .html files themselves will live there. The biggest bandwidth hogs are the photos, and I pay for Smugmug for the photo hosting..so im confidant Github will work out fine for just the webpage hosting.

I'll post here in this thread when the pages are back up! They will have a new URL (a new link)..the old mylargescale pages are gone forever..sad.

I'm glad I found this page. I have what I think is a 1963 10ML-60. It was my dad's back in the day. I've been using it ever since I got it around 24 yrs. ago. I have some pics I could send you. That's 54 yrs. old and she's still moving snow. Hello?

Hey Flat,
thanks! glad you enjoyed the page!
and thanks for the offer of photos, but i'm not updating the page at all right now, because I am in the process of moving ALL of my webpages to a new host..
its a multi-month process, I have to move them manually, one at a time..TONS of links to update with a change like that.

Im moving all my pages from here:
http://1stclass.mylargescale.com/scottychaos/


to here:
www.scotlawrence.com

I hope to be done sometime this year! ;)

Hey, Scot.

I wanted to let you know that there's a link on page 9 that is supposed to take to you page 10 -> it doesn't work

It's because it takes you to https://scotlawrence.github.io/ariens/page10.html instead of https://scotlawrence.github.io/ariens/Page10.html -> the P isn't capitalized
Great catch! I will get that fixed right away, thanks for letting me know!:smile2:

And I see I never actually posted the new main link in this page, it is:

Ariens page:
https://scotlawrence.github.io/ariens/index.html

Snowbird page:
https://scotlawrence.github.io/snowbird/index.html

Thanks,
Scot

Scot, Several years ago you helped me find a collector for my old 6HP Ariens 10ML60D. He was a local guy in Southern Massachusetts, but I have lost his name. I have a 26" Ariens Rotary Mower Attachment Series No 35-10M-000480 that fits that machine, and many others. I'm happy to give it away to a collector. Can you help me find one? My gmail address is kenelson1004.

Site is Great...Thanks!

I got a 924050 made in 79 but 80 model from a friend who didn't want to mess with it. Your site helped get her back working. Love this old Ariens... starts in 1 pull and runs great! Tecumseh just turned 40 couple weeks ago ... gave my new smaller yard machines blower to my brother to keep this one full time.

Update for 2020 is up!

2020
Changes for the 2020 model year:
(Snowblowers that went on sale in the Autumn of 2019)

Four new model numbers are introduced for the 2020 model year:
926076 Professional 32
926077 Professional 28
926078 Pro 28 Hydro Rapidtrak
926079 Pro 32 Hydro Rapidtrak
The Pro 28, Pro 32 and Pro 32 Hydro Rapidtrack already existed, but got new model model numbers for 2020, the Pro 28 Hydro Rapidtrack is brand-new for 2020, and has not existed previously.


Three models got a new engine for 2020:
921049 Deluxe 30 EFI
921050 Platinum 24 SHO
921053 Platinum 24 SHO EFI
See the details on engine model designations in the main list below. I don't know if they are actually different or upgraded engines, or simply changes to the engine descriptions or designations.

16 models were carried over from 2019:
920025
920026
920027
920028
921045
921046
921047
921048
921049
921050
921051
921053
921057
926068
926070
920402

And three model numbers were discontinued, and replaced by new model numbers:
(these three were 2019 models, but not 2020)
926065
926069
926071

And again for 2020, there is only one Sno-Tek model, 920402, Sno-Tek 24. (this is now the 6th year in a row that the 920402 Sno-Tek 24 has been the only model in the Sno-Tek lineup.)

It appears the demise of the 932000 series has been greatly exaggerated.
Like a phoenix from the ashes, they've removed it from the grave.
I've confirmed that Ariens plans to reintroduce a new dual stage subcompact line in 2021 called the Crossover series, It's new, but familiar. Model 932050. (where's model 49????)
If they have plans for other subcompacts (a hydro drive for instance would do away with the need for an aux PTO on the engine?), (or an electric version?), They would neither confirm nor deny. Ariens once again will have walk behind dual stage machines in 3 different impeller ranges 10", 12" and 14".

There also looks to be a new single stage series called the S18,
167971
I cant find Model number yet for the S18.
And perhaps a new Classic, the Classic+ 920030 that has the 223cc and 15" tires. I'll let you confirm and sort out the rest of the big blowers.
