Well almost 25. I bought this in November 26/90. It a great blower , always worked good. All thou not a collectors item, I am very lucky to have it. It helped out a lot last year with all the snow , when the garden tractors were broke down. One time last year, the snow was so bad our exhaust on our furnace pluged with snow. The weather was so bad, I did not want to use the tractor for fear of getting stuck and didn't want to deal with that in the storm, it was much easier to use the walk behind to get to the pipe and clear it. I realy don't want to be out in that type of weather ever again. It was nasty. So the blower has come in very handy over the years. It did all the work for the first 15 years until I got into garden tractors, and has done its share when the others a broke. Thanks for looking. Noel

Nice looking blower, keep it as long as you can!

All the new blowers are paper thin and you can literally bend the blower housing in with your hands!

That's a large driveway.

Great looking blower.  Been well cared for.  In one lives in snow country, you need a walk behind or plan to stay home & inside a lot.  I have an old BCS with a newer Briggs.  Heck of a well built machine.  Heavy as can be, easy to change attachments.  It is on the list of things to do to be ready for winter.  Turn the wheels around and mount the snow thrower.  The thrower goes in the same place the tiller does so you run it in reverse (hi or low) and swing the handle bars around and switch sides with the wheels to give better traction.  Ag tires don't grip a lot running backwards.

A backup is always nice to have ready, especially in snow country! Doesn't look that old!

Drift cutters. And they are not tall enough for around here. Last year 6 or more feet of snow. If it's only 3 feet this year, that would be much better. Noel

Sure nice, looks young yet!  I always thought Ariens made best blowers. I have one of those in only 3.5 hp that my dad bought way back in Seventies. 2 stage even for that little guy and it has moved more bigger snow than I've seen newer ones try to work on. I rarely use it, but do get it out once or twice a year most times when the BIG one comes and too help clean up banks when they start crowding the plowed paths and areas.
