A guy I work with knows I started loving LB's about 2 years ago. Since that, anytime somebody runs by one , or knows somebody that knows somebody that has one, lol, they call me or run it by me.......

It finally paid off. I have wanted a Snow Boy since I saw a vintage ad online. Seeing what you guys post, I have really wanted one. I went to work today, talked with our body shop guy who said he had good news for me.....his father-in-law had a SnowBoy he found at the curb about 80 miles from where I live.

He just called me and said he will part with it for $40. Brown, runs and in really good shape. I am guessing this is a 61 or 62.

Excited! I will post up pics tomorrow.!!!!!!!

This baby is clean. It is a SB13 model. Not sure why, but it doesn't come up on Lawnboy's website......

Let's see it! I'm trying to wait patiently to get my promised Snowboy (1818) soon. Maybe I'll stop and check on it again if I ever get off work early.

Got it! Seems to be 60 or 61, but cant find serial. Also, the on/off switch does not pivot, it does move up and down, and it does run........sounds really cool. I like the burble from the pipe.

Nice looking Snow-Boy. From what I could find it is related to the 1816. There are few differences, but the main one is the frame. They have two different part numbers listed between them. They were made in 1960 and 1961. Serial numbers start with 0 for 1960 and 1 for 1961, if you can find one on yours.

The snowboy that you have is a model SB-13 just like it says on the tag. This is a 1960 model and uses the C12AA engine. The on off switch work by rotating it left for the off position and right for the on position this allows you to start the snowboy in the on position and turn the engine off by rotating the switch to the off position. Also when you have the switch in the on position you can pull up on the black knob and when you have this out all the way this will be in the "full" choke position. Nice machine. I have several snowboys they are my favorite.

Lucky you. I've wanted one like that for a long time.
