My father in law passed away and I inherited his vintage 10 hp snowblower. This machine was his baby and kept inside both in the winter and summer. It is in mint condition. The only thing that has been changed are the tires to snow hogs for better grip, Machine looks and runs great. Oil was changed every year, machine was washed and waxed after every season. It has not been painted anywhere. I would love to see it in a snowblower museum with the amount of time my dad used to spend on it.

I live in Michigan. I would be willing to put on a trailer and meet up with someone within reason.

My email is [email protected] if you or someone you know has interest in the machine.

Here are some pictures:

You'll have no problem selling that .... unfortunately , many don't want to spend big bucks for an older machine, but my best machines are 2 Ariens 10000 series and a Yardman 7101, ....... all circa 69-70 ......

Yes, although SnowHogs work well, yours are indeed XTrac, and now a days, they are on all the new machines, as well as most of mine, and in my opinion, work even better than the SnowHogs.

Looks like a 30 inch ... real nice unit, but kinda big for the average homeowner in my opinion, unless you have a real large drive.

Has to be one of the best original condition Ariens around, big bonus that it was meticulously maintained annually.

I am too far away, but would have been honoured to have it in my garage along side my fathers Ariens that I restored this past spring.

Looks to be a 10/32, a big beast of a blower, I'm sure it will quickly find a good home.

Even if you don't require a snow blower, you could use it as a display in your man cave. :love:
