Tools & Materials

  • None


I picked up a Gilson 'gear drive' snowblower and a Toro 2 cycle snowblower both for something like 50 dollars. At the time I picked up the Gilson, it had a Briggs 6 HP engine that has almost NO compression at all, and the carb leaks gas really bad, even after a rebuild.

After completing several other repairs to make the Gilson work, I never did blow snow with it as the engine lacked power and leaked gas all of the time.
