Picked it up yesterday for the mere price of $300, gentleman i got it from didnt know what was wrong with it, but it wouldnt run. Got it to the shop today, always check for spark, then carb. Carb was the problem, 1 of the bolts fell out and the other was loose. put a new gasket on it, runs like a top! From what i can tell its a $1000 machine all day everyday. So im sure it will make a great addition to the snow removal company. Hard to think that snow is just around the corner.

Im gonna try it out the way it is first, its a very very heavy unit. Im not sure how it will do on ice, my business partner last year had a troy-bilt with rubber tires with chains, it had trouble on ice from time to time but wasnt all that heavy. I had to get a blower this year as the guy that was helping me last year has a hard time getting out of bed at 1-2am so I have partnered up with my father and a few other guys to try and get some kick-ass contracts such as a local wal-mart and a local TMC (trucking company) training center with a huge lot, hence getting a large blower.

For future reference where would one find ice studs for this thing?


anyone interested in the MF10 in the back ground? $100 cash no dicker price. email if you are interested.

ice cutter screws we use on ice for atv racing and can easily be found on ebay they screw into the tire like a sheet metal screw and would work wonders on that ,,

im affraid they would be too long? im not really sure as i have never used or seen them used around here. my only problem using the studs would be the damage they may do to concrete as i do snow removal in the yuppie part of des moines. do you think they would damage concrete? i have insurance but dont really care to use it to replace sidewalks.

I would like to hear how the tracks do on ice. I do know that with tracks, you can drive up and down steps . Sure beats dragging the blower up the steps.

I have done burnouts on pavement and had the tires a roastin with these in ,, and all it did was scratch it up I doubt it would do anything to concrete at a snails pace

you can buy them in different lenghts but all that sticks out is the size of a self tapping metal screw head --its what they look like just sharp at 1 end


its just a thought if the tracks ever need replacement Im sure the screws would be a cheaper option

wow never seen one but it doesn't snow here that often. Do they make a sulkie for that machine. I really like the treads, no flat tires........mmmm maybe some nice lights on the blower would be cool.

I would bite your hand off for that MF10 but you are a bit far away, the last one of those i saw here was in pretty rough condition with a £1400 price tag on it, no takers, i think it went later at £900 or so.
Good buy on the blower though.
