These collectable Bob Cat snow throwers are hard to find in any condition. This one has been meticulously restored to like new condition. It was made in 1964 and has the original 5 HP 1964 Briggs & Stratton engine. This unit was 90% disassembled, so every part could be restored, cleaned, and painted. The body (nearly 1/8-inch metal) has been stripped down to bare metal before painting with a coat of primer then 2 coats of paint.

This is a powerful little unit that can throw snow up to 30 feet away. It has 2 new belts driving its chain driven auger and impellers. There are NO shear pins to worry about. It uses a heavy-duty metal clutch that will slip if a solid jam occurs, without causing any damage, giving you time to shut it off to clear the jam.

All of the moving parts have been generously greased with lithium grease. All of the nuts & bolts have been wire brushed clean, painted and anti-seize used during assembly. It has NO leaks, doesn't smoke, and runs great. I have a digital copy of the manual showing model numbers, years made, complete parts list with part numbers, and other information for adjustments if needed. I also have a copy of the 5HP Briggs engine manual.

I've owned this snow thrower for the last 40 years, so I know how powerful this little unit is. This thing can cut through anything Mother Nature throws at it. It's been sitting unused, in my shed for the last 15 years. I have a ride on snow blower so I no longer needed it, but it's so cool, I couldn't just junk it. I decided to fully restore it to like new condition.

They don't make them like this anymore. These units were made with all metal parts and has NO PLASTIC parts like everything made today does.

Has NOT been used since restoration. Still looks brand new.
