Seems like a good price, considering the last 960 I saw at auction brought $1525...not running and missing all four tires, rims, and centers. Unlike Ultra, I prefer pre-'65 models with gas engines... because that engine was designed as a gasser and modified to a diesel. But plenty of people have them and like them. They ARE much less thirsty than the gassers. I think you'll find reverse to be a bit fast for a snowblower. But I found that the 971 I had could plow a lot of snow with a back blade. More weight and h.p. than the Jube I'd been using... use a high gear and open the throttle. :)

I also narrowly missed an opportunity to purchase a local 961 gas a few months ago for $1600. It needed an engine rebuild. Had this been gas, I would have had a lot less hesitation. My lack of diesel mechanical knowledge caused me to hesitate and consult with the board.
