I trust you're letting the previous owner come out and play with his old tractors.
Actually we keep in touch and our daughters have become pen pals. They are "Good People". We're fortunate to have met them.

For My Fleet I have a Toro s200 and a Ariens Metro 2837

I don't have actual photos, so here are some Google Images.





Then we have the Ariens "metro".
It is truly an amazing machine, It combines 2-cycle speed with 2 stage power.

My old Elcamino would slide back into the street after I parked if I did not put something gritty under the rear tires. Most of the time my 4x4 will stick to it as long as I leave it locked in 4 wheel drive.

Just saying, That thing is awesome... It almost looks like the snowblower version of a Yazoo mower.

Got mine out to wipe the dust off of them since all they're doing is sitting in the garage. All dressed up and no where to go, so to speak. It can snow here any time now. I think I'm ready.

Nice fleet B1,

I've always liked the Toro "Powerlite E" blowers, So much power in such small a package.

Thanks, I just picked the Powerlite up this last spring at a church rummage sale. Doesn't look like it had been used much. I've heard that the engine in it is pretty much a perfect match for the width of the auger. Can't wait to get some snow to try it out.
