Before I owned a 2 wheel Bolens I never thought they could push much but after a couple years of owning one and pushing snow/ dirt around They can handle just as much a load as the 4 wheel tractors.Looks good. How much snow can you push with the 2 wheeler? It would be very maneuverable! I haven't taken the loader off my plow tractor yet. The walk behind blower is ready to roll though. The long range forecast for the next 10 days or so here is not showing any snow.
AH! The good old late 1960's vintage Ariens Sno-Thro. I have one of them myself. It is a really nice unit and very durable and reliable. I bought one used 2 winters ago for $200 that ran great and has the 120VAC electric starter on it. I hardly ever use the starter though since it starts so easily with the pull start, but it did come in handy when troubleshooting a bad carb last year since I would have had to pull my arm off turning the engine over by hand! lol... I bought one because I remember growing up my dad had the exact same Ariens Sno-Thro as well and it always worked great. He still has it, granted it has a newer engine on it now. But the frame and body will last forever on those things.Anyway, here's my set up, plain and simple but this ol girl will move alota snow, she never fails......
Thanks, Bruce! I actually have model:I have manuals for most of the SnowBird snowblowers, if needed.
What model do you have?
On the SnowBird, the S-227 is the model number. ...The other number would be the serial number.I actually have model:
(Power Snow Remover S-227)
Also, if it helps at all I found this tag on the frame when I was cleaning it off after I got it and was in the process of fixing it up:
I'm pretty sure that has to be a full Model # (or maybe a Serial #?) for the machine.
I think I actually found a manual for the Ariens Sno-Thro already too since I had to find one to troubleshoot my dad's problem with his. We think he broke a roll pin in the gearbox on the auger mechanism last year (one of the few times he actually used it) since the impeller spins with the engine but the auger doesn't. Still, if you have anything for that one too, might just double-check it with what I have here.
