Original Message   Feb 12, 2005 3:44 pm
anyone know anything about these old snowblowers ? Yard-Man Snow Wolf Twin Thrust 8HP 28" with 5 speeds color orange. There is one for sale local that i saw online. the owner says he smelled burnt rubber then the auger stopped spinning. I was going to take a look at it and maybe purchase it but cant seem to find any info online. i was told it is older. any input ??

If this machine uses idler pulleys, one could have "gone south" which would cause a burnt belt. Its an easy part to find & also an easy repair. Hammer him Marty's "mask & gun" style & offer him FYE 'OLLAZ for it...

There a couple dual augers in here.

Check out that hughe 1958 Rolba at the end, 35hp 2000 pound walk behind.   Think they may hav said it has a volkswagon engine.  put it in a vw and they call it a  "Bug"   Put it on that beast and it looks like the snowblower that ate Siberia.

I went and took a look. It looked very weathered so I passed. Thanks for the help.    solara wrote:

AH Knee re-think a lil LOL  back-up, nostalgia,  a collectors item that can actually do somework..

Example my kid wants me to build another car etc,  I told him no tired of that too much room to store..  told him to get good grades in school get a good job and buy his own some day already built.  He just turned 16 today, got his learners,

What I didn't tell him yet is I would consider doing a vintage truck cause on thoes dozen or so days a year i might use it,  I can at least haul something with it. 

Same with that old SB  can do some work every once in awhile, (just run it every say three years or when need a back-up once complete) (then shop for a better used one and sell/push this one along maybe) Not much breaks or really deteriorates once you get them into some kind of shape and don't use them cept to start them, to  blow the dust off keep seals soft )

 Low ball the price  and get to it someother time

so how much for the 724  J/K
