What a nice rig! Just a little too much snow blower for my needs though.

Winter is not far off Jon, you would be the envy of the neighborhood.

Nice survivor!

John;
You could buy it and lease it to the city of Boston, especially after last winter!

It took a real man to drive these, and many a runway light and hidden automobile were digested by one of these.

Funny you mention vehicles. The city got this when the base closed in 1947. It was occasionally driven into the city following large snowfalls. I remember it blowing snow off our main st. in 1981. That year on a drift blocked street it munched a white VW beetle that was completely buried. The city never used it in town again.

Looked at plate inside drivers door on left side of drivers seat. It shows model, patents, and serial but no contract no.
W-709 model
17xx serial
Does have a odd diagonally stamped U.S.32 in lower left corner

Probably keeping this old girl for now.
I am in need of a nice windshield assembly and the Climax / Klauer engine radiator (located at the rear of the vehicle)
Any leads appreciated.

I saw this old post the other day. I will be parting out a 1941 SnoGo blower drive unit with a Climax engine this summer. It has a good radiator assembly. If you still need one please let me know.
