Roper Snowblower Snow Thrower 8hp 26" wide Serviced Reconditioned Perfect Condition.
They do not make them like this anymore, solid thick steel parts, heavy duty with very strong engine. I am moving out to condo in downtown, can't take it with me. Here is little history behind:
-Purchased about 12 years ago from my neighbor (I am second owner)
-Always stored in the garage
-Year 2011, I took all body metal parts apart, cleaned them and painted two coats with primer and one coat of paint. Checked everything, replaced anything that was worn out, including belts for impeller and transmission
-Year 2013, I took the engine to the shop and got it reconditioned, new piston rings, new gaskets, new carburetor kit installed, everything was adjusted and fine tuned.
-Year 2014 summer, I've replaced pulling rope and spark plug, this season I've used the snow blower once.
Engine: Tecumseh 8HP with electric start
Clear Path: 26 inch wide
5 speeds forward and one reverse
Starts after one pull
Tires hold air
Engine Oil Changed regularly (before the season)
I can deliver it for free within reasonable distance from Elmwood Park. I am asking $325 or best offer, you will not find another snowthrower out there in this condition. This is older model, I've put a lot of money and time to get it to run great and to look nice. The only reason I am selling, I am moving to condo in downtown Chicago area, no need for the snowblower.
