Unless there was a written agreement, then what ever is left on the property when you left, is no longer yours and you're probably out of luck. I'm not a legal advisor, just my thoughts.

In NV, the Residential Purchase Contract typically states that any personal property left at the property after the sale becomes the Buyer's property. Period. End of story
Verbal agreements are not valid in real estate or property. Period. Agreement must be in writing. No agreement, no property. So sorry. If it ain't written down, it ain't so.

Now that is out of the way. I suggest you call the Buyer and request that the Buyer give the property to the friend. If the Buyer, who is now the property owner by contract, says no, tell your Friend to go buy himself a snow blower.

What did we learn by this? If it ain't written down, it ain't so.

The seller should have done this in writing. However, have the seller contact the buyer and communicate as to what new buyer requires to authorize the friend to pick up the blower!
