That is exactly like the one i got from my brother that got it from his wife's grandpa. He gave it to me when he moved to Kentucky. After years the auger gear box broke. I had an old craftsman also. Finally i went out and bought the big one. wind chill got down below zero today.my 1975 Ariens snowblower started right up this morning
and made quick work of 6" of wet snow
I was pushing it like a lawn mower, leaning over the grips
then I remembered "WTH am I doing?!"
stood up straight, one finger on the right grip to steer - goes by itself hands free all the way down the driveway!
someday I will need a new Ariens
but after 44 years... not yet! View attachment 90019
Thats not mine, but close enoughf
THIS IS A GOOD TIME to remind everyone
that every winter people in good health shovel out the wet snow in the driveway
go inside to warm up
sit in the Lazy Boy recliner or kitchen chair
and drop dead from a heart attack, before they hit the floor
get a snow blower
pay a plow
your life is worth more than a few hundred $$$
