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.

Missing three M111113 bolts that hold the upper hood in place.  One of the members from my church works at the local Deere dealer and he is picking them up for me.  :-D

We thought about one of those for the sidewalk and carrying up 4 steps to our deck approx. 38' x 12'  Should be a good machine for you

While I am not happy how easily this one catches on the sidewalk joints, I used it last night to do the second round of clean up.  It is clear this one has a bigger engine than the Snapper I have been using.  It will take on 6" snow and not miss a beat.  Once I get the bolts for the hood I will take a look at the cutting edge and see if there is a way to make it move along the sidewalk and driveway a bit easier.

Installed the hood screws and washers this afternoon and used it to clean the 6-8" drift of snow out of the driveway.  Definitely got more grunt than the Snapper.  I also noticed the cutting edge has more wear than I initially realized.  I found an Oregon 73-022 on Amazon with free shipping but have found Deere M94511 cheaper elsewhere.  It definitely needs replaced sooner than later.
