The Venerable Snowblower
I doubt this is the absolute record-holder for snowblowers still in service, but it is certainly among the few.
The estimate is that it is about 35 years old. The tannish-orange sections used to be white. You have to click to enlarge to get the full effect.
Note the new tires from last year. Clearly I had hopes of running it another ten years or so. But it won't start, even with Chris's ministrations, so I think I will be getting a new one soon. A shame, really. The Swamp Yankee in me believes there must still be a few years left in 'er.
