Found these on CL. Both run 1st pull, the snow shark is a monster! I am in love with this machine. The snow bird I like too. I went to him for the shark, then saw the bird sitting in the corner crying to be rescued. Very nice man I bought them from. Not bad for $50 a piece :)

I think you did good on the blowers!  :thumbs:   I've got 3 of those Snow Birds myself, but I'm wondering what year the one you have is. All mine have solid  wheels and are 64's so I thinking yours could be newer with pneumatic tires.  Hopefully you don't have to use them for a long time, atleast 6 months :D

Nice grab. What's your plan with them? Don't tell your 444 you bought them or she'll think you don't love her anymore and aren't planning on using her this winter. :bigrofl:

With the snows you can get up that way, I think the Shark would be a keeper!  Superb deals on both!

Very nice. They both look to be very well made. The twin auger Shark is something I have never seen in a walk behind.

Having enough snow to use one of those should be illegal!

A snowblower with a cast iron Kohler is one mean setup.  Those drifts won't stand a chance.  I'll give you a ring when my drive is blocked up, how long would it take you to get here?

 

What engine is on the other one behind all that sheetmetal?

 

Having enough snow to use one of those should be illegal!

 

You should have a good snow maybe once in the season to keep the oil moving, but that should be about it.

Nice find. They are both happy to be rescued, I'm sure.

Love the Snow Sharks. I have never seen one in person or in operation - I'll be expecting some video next winter!  :D
