Thats why I said:Well said.
A lot of folks see their own little piece of the world and think that it's the same everywhere.
They are a dime a dozen here and normally I'd pass on something this beat up but being its overseas it may be different for you.
Yup they work fine , my first snow removal unit was a Bolens H16 with the blade or when it got to high or narrowed down to much I'd switch to the blower that was purchased new with it in 1973 by my Father in Law and it's the square back model, it literally has casted tons of snow at both our places before I retired it when I discovered Large Frames, couple years ago I found a round back and was surprised at the difference. Not disparaging the square back just pointing out my experiences with both and if given a choice for moving snow, which one I'd use.I have one just like it and it worked fine this winter. Had to make the chute adjusting rod, connecting joint and bracket. The right mounting bracket needs straightening. A good cleaning and repaint the chute area especially and it should make you a good unit. Those guys out East that say they are a dime a dozen are living in their own world.
