Another 451

Post by SWilliams »

Found another orphan 451 blower nearby, Paid the low low adoption fee and brought it home. This one is in the best shape of any I have seen in a long time, it looks to have maybe 20 hours of use. Only things it needs are the idler pulleys replaced as it has sat long enough for them to rust up. Has to be an early one as it's all white and has the older auger gearbox. Planning on tearing it down, repainting it some and giving it a full grease job to have it ready to go if needed.

I was surprised when I actually looked it over. The only parts missing are the belt guard (part of it is there) and the lift arm that mounts to the rockshaft, which I have 4 of anyway. One scroll has a light bend that took about 30 seconds to fix. No other dings or damage. Only wear was the shoes and I think that was because they used it on asphalt. Will do a bit of work and weld up some hardox skids for it like I have for others.
