I added this to the worker fleet and will add more details about it as I learn about it.  I know that it has a Tecumseh 2 cycle engine but don't know much else about it.  This one has a plug-in electric start like my little Snapper 18" unit.  Oil/Gas mix ratio is 50:1

Looks very similar to the Ariens I have. Different color and no electric start but it starts really easy. 3hp Tecumseh 2 stroke 21" wide.


Well it did start really easy untill I let it sit with gas in it for 2 months. I have the carb off of it. Float got ate up pretty bad.  Note to self (don't let snowblower sit out in the Sun with fuel in it again) lol


They will throw 8-10" deep snow if it's dry snow. They don't like the Wet stuff. I like how easy they are to maneuver. Perfect for a narrow side walk like ours.

Spent a few hours behind a Toro of similar design. Lightweight and easy to move around.

Here is the story behind this one...

I have been following these blowers for some time with hopes of upgrading from my little single stage Snapper.  This one showed up locally and was $50-100 less than others out there.  I contacted the seller and made arrangements to make the purchase.  The seller told me that he was selling it for his father-in-law who is no longer able to use it.  Before I got it the seller's father-in-law replace the belt and spark plug then gave it simple cleaning.  One pump on the primer (no choke) and it started on the first pull.  

It does look similar to other singles out here but still have not done any research at this time.
