I picked this up this summer from NJ but have not had much time to play with it.

When I got it , it was very difficult to start ran rough and eventually it wouldnt fire at all , Turns out the condenser was bad as it fired right up on the first pull and ran great after I replaced it.

Hope to get to try it out atleast once this year and may show it at the festival of lights show we have at the local fairgrounds towards Christmas time

Overall its in great shape for 1968

It did come with chains when I got it.

The guy used this every year up until he sold it and bought a new blower from what I remember

Never used one of these so will be a new experience for me!

The secret to any good thrower operation is the speed of the auger and impeller if a 2 stage. About the same as a tiller. I put rubber flat belting on the flats of the auger on my Bolens to close the gap between the auger and the housing. Made a big difference.

Great looking snowblower looks like you'll be having some fun this winter! I just wanted to thank you for the help getting my groundskeeper up and running!
