Looks nice and complete and does not look a mess from heavy oil leakage.

Good deal!!!!!! An almost freebie will get you hooked on onanitis quicker. So far it 's not officially an addiction. We will be here to help you when loss of sleep and "GREEN DREAMS" start. Howard (non recovering)

the deer snow blower is about a 25 YO last ran about 2 yrs ago.
I got it from storage mid trip.

the low ramp trailer works great [AKA motorcycle trailer]
two of us slid the generator up on the sheet of 3/8 plywood

my truck bed was about 2 feet higher. [if there were 4 of us maybe]

I've inquired about a used industrial hand cart
8" pneumatic tires in two straight and two in swivel castors.

I've got a 4 @ 15A breaker box & outlets I can use.
if I leave it 120 only I will need to double the neutral wire.

at one time I had a ramp, 2-horse, trailer. now Ive got a step up.
but this was the ease of getting it into a trailer bed only 11" off the ground.
a $16 rental about 2 mi away vs getting my trailer 32 mi 4 times
[get, & back, use, return, & back]
I would have spent well more than the rental in extra gas.
est 10 Mi./Gal. and 128 mi extra 12,8 gal @ $2.189 about $28.01

I just hope nothing expensive is screwed up
there is no burnt smell.
no obvious visible damage.

Great find. Most RV removals are real dirty and oily. I bet it needs little work.
