I was hoping you might chime in. There is a lot that seems familiar with this machine, but it's configuration is just unique enough to say that it is a unique brand.

I970 Simplicity Sno-Away. Kind of vintage and unique because of the water wheel impeller rotation. I'm not decided on what to do with it yet. I tinkered it up enough to hopefully get me though the winter when I bought it late last fall and it did, so it now doesn't owe me anything... however it needs more work. I'm working on an older 1964 Bobcat but would only post a picture on that later as it's apart.
