Looks Good!!!
Any details? HP? Speeds?

Any reason you didn't get one for the deere or cub?

How about one of those cabs so you stay dry?

It is an 11hp Tecumseh 32'' it is a last years model held over but new.I was able to save a few hundred dollars that way.Only difference between this years model is.They went with a Briggs this year and the amber light is on the control panel rather then down by the engine.

I thought about putting a blower on the 2166 but decided not to.Because of the cost would be about the same maybe more with weights and chains.Plus it gets COLD out here and starting might be a problem.The Tecumseh snow king is made for cold weather.Plus I like to put my lawn tractors to bed for the winter.

What I used in the past was a farm tractor but I do not have a machine shed on this farm where I live.Getting to the farm with the tractor is a problem when I can not get out of the lane.Plus diesel jells in the winter when its extremely cold.Not to mention having to bring it in on the roads during a storm is dangerous.

I seen the snow cab.But the way the wind blow out here it would be blown off in minutes.

When I picked it up the dealer said after he loaded it in my truck.Good luck thanks and I hope you never get to use the SOB.I would like to get to try it out but I do hope I do not get to use it very often.

Sixchows it also has 5 forward speeds and 2 reverse.It also has a trigger on the handle to lockout the right wheel for turning.No pins on the wheels to mess around with.Except for free wheeling mode.

Some years we get very little snow and other years we get nailed.Atleast it is there and ready if I need it.We get drifts out here.Snow is not a problem until it drifts the lane shut.

That would be fine with me.Was sort of the plan.Just like when I bought a generator and now we do not have power outages.

What make is it? Ariens? Great looking machine, JD. I wish we got more snow here in the Seattle area so I could justify getting one.... The front blade on the JD170 will just have to work for any small amount we might get.

I've heard good things about the SnowKing engine. You got a great buy.

Congrats JD on the good buy:

I hope you get at least one real good snow storm there to really try out that Simplicity. I bet your going to love it when that POWER BOOST kicks in.

I owned a 9HP with the Power Boost and I tell you when it kicks in and the second stage comes back to full power it would throw snow almost 45 FT.

Good luck and congrats.

I was reading about the Power Boost in the literature.I did not know if it was just a sales pitch or not.It does claim it will throw the snow up to 45 ft.I will be amased if it does.My neighbors would be watching for sure if it did.

Simple John, you agree?

Excellent selection. That looks like a commercial grade machine.
Does it have the cable activated chute control?
It has a gear drive chute control.To change the chute pitch it has a cable spring control.You just turn a knob push down or pull then a 1/4 turn it locks in place.To chage chute direction there is a hand crank that drives a shaft with a worm gear that contacts the gear on the chute no cables.

Yes that is a Techumseh Snow King OHV 11hp.Not a Briggs that there using this year.It is new but is a held over 1180E rather then a 1280E
