Question Need Sears Snowblower Model No., 9hp 30"

I need a model # for this snowblower so I can order parts. It has a Tecumseh 9 HP engine & a 30" clearing width. It's not a current model but it is less than 2 years old. Sears is no help.

Beign only 2 years old, I doubt that the chassis ID tag is missing. Look closely at the frame area where the engine mounts to it for the tag containing a model and serial number. If it is greasy, wipe it down with a towel. It likely will start with 917. Or if it happens to be a MTD-built thrower it will start off with 247. If, however, you need engine parts you will need engine ID #'s. Again there will be a tag affixed somewhere, only this time on the engine itself and being a 9 horse will begin with HMSK90 and then followed by the specification number. Just what parts do you need?

The tag is missing. I bought it on Ebay. The seller had a very high feedback rating with thousands of ratings so I didn't expect a problem. The listing explained that it needed parts but I figured "no problem-Sears has parts for everything" and I'm pretty good with mechanical stuff. I didn't realize it had no model # and Sears couldn't/wouldn't provide one. I even wrote the main customer service office & they called me but couldn't help.

The seller said they get them from the factory near them in south Georgia. I'm guessing it is a customer return or maybe a factory reject. It was dusty but appears to have little use. The engine runs good and everything else seems ok. I need both idler wheels at the very least. I also need the rod/cable that engages the drive wheels, pulley housing cover, and whatever holds the headlight in place, but I can "invent" all of that. I got the model # off an 11 hp that was still in a Sears store in April and one of the idlers looks the same but one is different. Thank you for the info you provided, at least it's a start.

Any chance you can find an old sears catalog? Maybe you can find the model in it. Also, you could try searching for sears snowblowers on ebay or a search engine and see if you can find one like yours for sale and get the model# off it.
