The motor should have a stamp on it somewhere to help you identify it.
We are on the same page. As of now, the chute is the only item that interests me ... unless I realize that the engine size is 208 or 212 cc. The rest ... I would leave on site to be picked up for scrap.I think it is this Chinese model, they are claiming to have both 9 and 11 HP models.
If it is free or very very cheap, it might be worth seeing if you can make the chute fit your Ariens. Other than the engine, the remaining parts are probably worthless IMHO, I wonder if the tracks would fit a Honda or Yamaha machine, probably not?

i would say they are ok for smaller amounts of snow but they kind of limit how much snow snow can go through it at a time
I now realize that I should have been more specific with my question. It tended to make people think that I was looking for another snowblower. I'm not. I was just interested in the tall chute and maybe the engine, if its size is 208 or 212cc.I really wouldnt waste my time or money on this.
Get something with a proven track record. You can do some searching around here and the same brands will keep popping up on good used reliable snowblowers.
You get what you pay for. Do you like to cuss a lot in a snowstorm???
