Jari Jaw Snowblower
Original Message   Oct 1, 2006 6:13 am
I have a Jari Jaw Snowblower and need to find info on it. I am restoring it and would like to get manuals and the like. There is a Ser# label on the back and it sayes Jari Corporation Serial # 770961 Model Landmaster. There is also a 77 stamped on the plate where the motor mounts in the front right corner. Any info would be a big help.

I have used it the past 3yrs and let me tell you this is one hell of a machine. It ate my chain link fence, for real!!!! I am putting hand controls on it this year to help with that. There is nothing that this thing will slow down for. It had a Tecumseh 70H motor on it but that one has finaly seen it's last days so I am putting a new motor on it that I have ordered. I got it from my uncle who got it from a school that he worked at and he told me that it was a powerhouse and that the folks that made it knew what they where doin. I do not doubt that one bit after using it. This is a 7hp and I know for a fact that it will out perform any 10 or 12 hp that is stamped out today. They just don't make them like this one anymore.

Please note, the Jari snow blower is also a 3 blade lawn mower in descise. The two stage snow blower is removed detaching two bolts and a drive belt. Then the mower is attached to the power unit is used to operate two attachments. What a great idea the Jari mower/snow blower was.

I have a complete, running Jari Jaw II snowblower which is on its way to the dump shortly, due to its cantankerous disposition.

From reading the posts, it seems there are some folks that favor this model, and I am glad to offer it up to anyone who may have use for it or its parts.

Pick up only, for free, in New Hampshire.

I can break it up for parts, but must charge for my time and shipping.

Contact me at wlucey@spearsystem.com if interested.

Hi Ken,

I found your post. My father and a group purchased Jari from David Paulson one of the major share holders and my uncle Chuck ran the factory in Little Falls, MN. I was #8 from a family of 9 and boy did my older brothers have a great time testing out all of the cool new gear including gas powered skate boards. We have some great film at Ramset Jr High school parking lot, film in Fl testing out mowers and even a letter from the VP for the clean at Camp David. I even had the pleasure of using the double snow blower as I grew up and it is perfect fpr the deep MN snow falls.

Feel free to contact me if you would like to share some stories.

Matt,

My Grandfather purchased a Jari riding Lawn Mower in the 1950s or early 1960s used. My Father and Brother restored it with no manuals and have taken it to limited antique lawn mower showings. No one in Ohio or Indiana have ever seen or heard of this equipment. My Father is looking anyone that may have any additional information about this lawn mower. You and Ken are the first people that we have found mentioning Jari and Lawn mower in the same sentence. Your Help would greatly welcomed on our quest.

Regards,

Steve Vogel

Everything on this machine works great.  It is in great condition with all of the decals intact.  The gentleman who had it hardly used it.  I have had no luck trying to find any information on this machine.  Anyone have any information?

Thanks in advance.

Justin
