Me and my uncle picked up 3 blowers and a Gravley mower today, a very clean Ariens 8526 is fixed, ready to sell, both Troy Bilt engine fixed and ready to sell, both auger gearboxes are shot and parts discontinued so it will be parted out, Started on the Gravley but got too late.
Ransome 18 inch cut mower's Briggs needs carb work along with a Honda powered Snapper, i will be getting a double pully Briggs 5 hp with a rebuilt carb for my Ariens to sell.

Thanks Chris, this is just another week, we do this every week or weekand, just stuff to fix and sell, nothing special.
Mud is a pain in the butt but you get use to it after a while, shop is full and needs a cleaning badly, i mean really badly :confuse:

Jesse, I didn't realize you did this. I think it's great when someone takes the units that still have life and repairs and sells them. Good for you. It looks like those are in pretty good shape.

I do a lot of thing but is not a expert on anything, these are the left over blowers from the winter, the local small engine repair shops end up with a lot of tractors, mowers and blowers that are left behind due to cost of fixing compared to the new cheap stuff or is too worn out and outdated, we are able to take the last step and asertain the product to see if it can be rotated back out for a good price and is not limited like the local shops are, we recycle :thumbs:
I generally do not like to merge my work with my hobby but with the rising cost of living more and more people just need something simple to get by with, there are guys here who are much better then me regarding this so i stay out of it here.
