last night the head trustee at church approached me. they bought a new snow blower because the other one was acting up. he was going to take it to the scrap but knew that i love tinkering with things. The repair shop said it woudl be 200 bucks to fix. mostly labor. I told him i'd give him scrap price for it. 20 bucks.

2 stage elec start. engine runs great (tecumsuh) augers are nice. There is a bad gear that makes the tires not turn sometimes. you have to kick the gearbox a few times and then it goes. he said he has to kick the gear box about 4 times an outing when doing all the church sidewalks.

i can find the gear thats chewed on ebay for 40 buckaroos. otherwise, i'll take the tires off and find a way of making it into something i can mount to my tractor. HA.

you are saving yourself a ton of money there. we had gone to Sears this past winter looking for a snowblower and saw the MTD Pro, it was 24" and it was like $600.

just set the thing up on its face and took off the cover to the gear box. all of the gears were all loose. there were 2 broken clip pins in the bottom of the thing. i'm gonna run to the hardware store and pick up new pins and attach them and see if that doesn't clean it up. i called the guy who was used to operating it and he was like, sometimes it felt bound up and sometimes when you shut it off you couldn't push it anywhere. i'm thinking i found the culprit and can fix it for 10 bucks. i asked the trustee if he wanted it back and he said no. its hard enough to get volunteers and having something that might have problems wastn' something he wanted them to deal with. its a 2005 model. 10hp and a 29" clearing path.

i greased up all the gears and stuff too.
