I was looking for an a cheap Ariens 10m dog catcher series, that are becoming harder to find. Then I found this 10000. I usually don't even pick up blowers that look as neglected as this one but said what the heck for 30 bucks. Engine not running, one skid shoe bottom non existent, diff lock rusted frozen, chute crank bent,oil all over the place, electric tape on coil wire, but I need a project. I Figured this this thing is so ugly maybe ill never sell it and be blowerless again. I'm thinking of building a sleeper. It does have a new belt as of last year. These are some of my favorite machines to operate do to the ease of use. As for the sleeper part I want it to look OE and old but perform like a beast. No predator swap or extra tall chute, or Carlise xtrac as that will defeat the look. Im thinking, pulley change, clear coat rusty inner chute, maybe a tec or briggs higher hp of this one is long gone, studded or ag tires. Any ideas chime in and wish me luck.
