Its not at home yet but is residing safely inside one of my service vans til I can get it home. These pics were from the CL ad, $75 and drove it up the ramp into the cube van. Got a quick look at it after Nick got back to the office, looks even better than the pics. Going to start with a good wash and get more pics up afterwards.

Seeing as its a Allis-Chalmers of the right vintage I am going to hold on to it as a part of my collection.snowbee4.jpg snowbee1.jpg snowbee2.jpg snowbee3.jpg

Oh and its Kathys birthday today, she will be thrilled that I got her a new blower :shoot2: :shoot3: :spanka: , she just dont know it yet.

Happy birthday to Kathy! It looks like a good strong blower! What are your plans for it?

I want to get the grease and oil cleaned off and then see what might be needed bearing or seal wise. Nick said it started on the second pull and ran real smooth. Dont plan on a full restoration but want to clean it up and seal it as needed, then it may see the snow on the cement pad once or twice a year but it will never go down the gravel drive. Just a neat addition to my addiction :)

Cool, I wish I could find one that cheap, that's a steel!

I could not believe it lasted the day and a half before I saw it, called the guy and said I would take it at the price listed, guess I was the first caller :thumbs:

Greg,that's quite a looking machine.


Thanks Maynard, good to see you back around.

Someone took good care of that one! Nice find Greg!

Happy Birthday Kathy!


It looks like its always been kept inside, dont even see many scratches.

It will be home by this weekend so expect some more in depth pictures as well as an approx age if I can see the numbers on the Briggs.

And thanks to all for the Happy Birthday wishes. Two of her sisters brought cards out tonight from 7 & 15 miles away, other sister sent a card in the mail this week, lives about 12 miles away. Kathy was kind of PO'd about that but she went off to play her dulcimer with some girls in the band so shes having fun doing what she enjoys on her birthday.

Nice, that's a great find. There was a newer one in Erie about a month ago for (I think) $100. Almost makes a guy wish he had snow.

Looking forward to the pics!

Just in case you don't already know, the Mfg. no. for your thrower is 2025052. I'm guessing it was built somewhere between 1963 and 1966.

Uploaded some manuals that you might find useful, if you don't already have them.

Thanks Greg, You Are The MAN!!!
I had none of those, had done some searches with just the sno-bee name, but found very little. These three files will be a huge help. Thanks, thanks, thanks, thanks, thanks, .....................you get the idea?
THANKS

Greg you may be understating the value of the knowledge you share here with us just a weee little bit. I think you have been more than some help every time you respond to someones post. You seem to have an extensive knowledge of the AC and Simplicity brands.

Heres a few more pics. There is a bracket missing/broken that holds the hood on but other than that seems to be all there.

has a two speed transmission

Foot operated clutch lever for the auger drive (low on the left side)

And the engine plate for you old Briggs guys, not sure how to read the date from serial #.

I am pretty happy with it for the price, has a few oil oozers and the usual briggs carb drips but I think it has lots of potential. And of course now that its home the Boss is aware, at least its not another tractor, and I am still alive :)
