    Around here, $150 for that would be solidly in "good deal" territory but not in "it's a trap!" land. You'd have to act fast to get it before someone else does.

    Heads up... its got the WORLD'S WORST gasoline engine.
    And is that a belt drive? Surely it is. Belt driven snowblowers suck.

    Not saying its not reasonable pricewise, just making sure you're aware of what it is. I've got one just like it in my spare junk heap. I wouldn't waste time running it.

    Passed on the blower for now. Seemed to start ok.

    Lot bigger than I expected. Prob would throw snow good.

    Had to choke to turn off... Think I'm looking for something a little newer.

    Probably still a decent price.

    How do you figure thats the worst gas engine ever? I have the same setup on my Ariens blower and that thing is tough as nails and always starts on the first pull.

    Anybody who has used one of those engines extensively will agree with me.
