Awesome machine I actually have 2 older Ariens snowblowers and love both of them.

We took a short trip to the next county this evening. Picked up a Gard N Yard leaf vac for the Trac Team. Pics when we get it unloaded.

The guy we got this from thought it is likely a 1968 model. Paint looks decent for it's age.

I want to open it up and check every thing since it has been setting a while. Looks like it was barely used and always in a shed. Even the bag is in excellent shape and appears original. I was surprised how good the paint is yet. I am thinking that we will probably give the inside a coat of paint when we put it away for the winter. And wax the outside.

And the shredder.

Can you take a picture down inside the shredder so I can see what the blades or teeth look like??

Looking in through the discharge. It is very close in design to a Mighty Mac.

Shorty,
I have a RotoHoe brand of chopper/shredder or what ever it is. Inside mine does not look like that. Mine has tines that look like RotoTiller tines. Have you ever seen one with those type?? Not sure what to make of it.

It is all that the 8 hp Tecumseh can handle. 😁 We ran some branches up to 2" through it. Feed it a bit then wait for the rpm to build.

I can't say that I have. This one is a flail type. You sure can hear it when it gets towards full rpm. My dad has a Roper shredder that uses what looks like two mower blades. You have a picture of it?

I don't have any pics, just imagine 4 tiller tines in where yours are located.

That is interesting. Have you used it? Can it handle anything big?
