Great find. Amazing what people will throw away.

High scrap prices lead to more things being sold to the yards rather than being fixed.

Is that a 2 stage blower and what does it mount on. I am guessing cub cadets since it is in this section, all the blowers I have seen have been belt drives. You don't see many snow blowers in my neck of the woods though. I wouldn't mind having one to play with every few years when we get more than 2 inches. I am thinking with "climate change" it is cooling and we will be getting more snows in the winter so I might just have to find me a blower for the 149. How about a few more pics of it, looks pretty clean and straight, great save.

I guess a walk behind could be a better match for some areas, but it sure cuts into your cub seat time! Is it an IH or did someone just put a sticker on it?

Picked up a new "winter engine" from Princess Auto at 1/2 price.15 hp is a little overkill but the output shaft was a better fit than the smaller one.What size wheel and tires do I need? Likly have to make the 3/4" hubs
