Need a snow blower?

I upgraded to a big-ass 2 stage since my old one can't handle the 3' of muck from the plows every time it snows. Sucks living on a busy street.

It has three problems.
1. The pull start rope broke. The electric start still works though.
2. The Last time I used it the grounding pin from the elec. start socket came out. Not sure how necessary it is. Still starts.
3. The primer bulb dried out and cracked. I can usually still get it to prime though. If not I shoot a little starter or carb cleaner fluid in there and it fires right up. Should all be easy fixes. I'm just lazy and never got around to it.

It basically looks like this...



Not exactly but close

It works pretty well if the snow isn't too deep or heavy. It works in heavy snow but does tend to bog. It's still better than shoveling. I'll give you a good deal. If I know you from here I'll give you a great deal.

You have to pick it up though. But I need it gone. Don't have room for two.

You're far more ambitious than me. Happy new year to you too. Don't be a stranger. Don't see you around much anymore.

Hey, I live just down ogden in Downers. I'm still using my garbage picked ccr2000 that I had to replace the rope and primer bulb on.

If you just want it gone I can pick it up today....

I'm not opposed to giving it away but I don't want to give it to someone that's just going to turn around and sell it. Was mostly trying to help out someone that maybe can't afford one.

I'm gonna sit on this thread a few days. If I get no interest I'll contact you.
