Maybe we could purchase it together. I’m mostly interested in the cab but you were interested in a caster. We would probably have to go and check it out after I get home next week. :peace: Harry

Yes I did but really was just interested in the s48 snow caste.

Harry, sorry but I bought the cab a couple of weeks ago. I offered the seller $300 for the caster but he wanted to try his luck! Well he re listed the 448 higher ($975) without the cab than the original price of $950 with the cab. So, when I looked at the 448 it's a very late 1987 build the engine ran really rough and he said he spent some time even getting it to run and really smoked (almost certainly running rich rather than burning oil though). The caster was a S48 that was interesting to me (only because I am trying to recreate the chain tensioner on my earlier J & L casters) but has bad auger bearings and probably jack shaft too but could not tell with all the other noise. As I said I was interested in the caster for $300 but he turned me down (remember he paid less that $300 for the whole thing) and I have already given him $300 for the cab alone!

So what now? he still has the GT and the snow caster posted on Craigslist at the inflated price ($975), he also has the snow caster posted separately at $475 for at least 3-4 weeks now and no takers.. Frankly the guy is an idiot...

If I go back in the spring when he calls me my snow caster price will be reduced to $200!!

When I stopped by to have a look. I sorted him out with the caster and ran it to a snow pile which going into it easy was blowing maybe 7-8 feet. Said he needed 900 since he put in a battery. I got home blew back the banks at the end of my drive with my 224. It was nice, going up 7' in the air and fanning about 4'+ then landing15' from me. Many of the passers-by were enjoying it too. Well that 448 is pretty tired to me after that. The Christmas 5' accumulation had me feeling I need more power but my 224 dealt with it ok. I am remembering Paul Harvey now and his "Now, for the rest of the story". Be Well

Noticed the guy has deleted the snow caster and 448 so it's either sold or he gave up...
