Not sure of model numbers but guessing the Shins.  Info shared on them when first were coming out.

Those were originally patented by Ron Bergman of Bottineau, ND, the local Stihl dealer. Shindawa was the only company interested in them at the time. I used one of his prototypes at a display he had for Crazy Days in Bottineau. Farmers liked them to sweep out grain bins. They work good on snow if it is not too deep and you angle it as you walk. The paddles on the drum were originally from the belts on grain pickups for harvesting swathed cereal crops. Jim, you probably still have them in use from Sund Manufacturing in Newburg, ND up in your area. Early 90's is right on when they came on market.
