    Hello Brian,


    It looks like a two stage snow caster built by Fair MFG., Weld the bracing back on quick as it is heavy.

    you should plan on adding a pair of pneumatic or steel swivel caster wheels to avoid digging in a the corners.

    I think I finally found it....
    96" Erskine 3-Point Rear Mount PTO Snow Blower Model 960RM

    Other than the lower auger and 4 blade fan. Must be a newer model than mine.
    Anyone know anything about the company?

    Thanks,
    Brian

    It's an Erskine 960 rear-mount. Definitely high-end and has a couple unique features that put it in a class by itself. In the hitch-end view, the power to the auger goes out to the right from the gearbox. (Almost all of them go to the left.) The 3pt hitch points are unique too - deep box-members supporting the pin points - very strong.

    This basic design has been made for a while - with a few changes. Right now they show a current one at the Quick-attach (Erskine?) website. The biggest difference is the lower auger is now bigger than the upper. The website has a video that shows footage of two different blowers, one is like yours with the drive on the same side. There's also a 96" one listed on the bay too (maybe the same one?).

    Erskine (and many others) used to paint equipment with yellow zinc-chromate, back before the environmental police declared war on it. Maybe that explains the original color of yours? Pics below lift & middle are net images of Erskine 960. The one on the right is a head scratcher - either a single-auger Erskine with a JD decal, or ??
