Here's some of my '86 GT18 I've redone the past few months..... bought for $500(guy wanted $1,000 when negotiations began) and now have about $800into it as it sits with new paint, some new sneakers on the front/back, a used Original Cab enclosure(from a Toro) refit/installed and a fabricated weight tray/box. Still hope to install some forward facing lights on cab enclosure. It's been a fun project to work on. Can't wait for some snow here in Maine so I can play!

Re: Show us your Ariens

Here's a video of my S-16 that I picked up in mid-September. Since I've had it I've given the hood and frame new paint, tore off the seat (piece of junk -- new one is coming), put tubes in the rear tires, and tuned it up. I just got it started after a brutal ordeal with the points and carb but I think it sounds pretty good now.

Re: Show us your Ariens

here's the team, s14h and a gt14 (the one with the cab) - since the pics the gt 14 was replaced with a gt 20, it looks the same though because I put everything from the 14 on the 20

Re: Show us your Ariens

I've got an old Ariens HT-16 that was going to the scrap yard. The owners didn't want it anymore. It has a B&S 16 hp twin cylinder engine that actually runs! i hope to get it going someday.
