Been looking for sometime now for a Artic 60 walk behind snowblower,got lucky the other day,got a good deal on one on Ebay,very happy with price,need to thank Old Buzzard for stopping and getting it for me on his way back from Maryland and dropping it off at the campground where we are staying for the summer,,it was in eastern Pa,guy said no spark but good compression,well tonight I had a little spare time to play with it,come to find out good spark but no fuel,a little gas down the spark plug hole and she kicked right over,I'll tear carb off do a good cleaning,needle valve stuck,may do a rebuild if needed,it needs a little TLC but pretty decent for the age,I think these were very cool looking,003.JPG I found with the number on it it is a 1966 model,came with chains as well,I'm a happy guy !!!!

Bolens continually impresses me with what they offered.  It was a complete catalog.  :worshippy1:

You ought to be careful.  If two Brians think much more alike... and they team up with a Canadian... things might get ugly around here.

What parts are you looking for?

I stock quite a few parts for the snowblowers, alot of people still use them!

What kind of drive system is on this one? Some came with optional ratchet type drives.
