Sounds like a GREAT deal as long as it has good compression

(running straight gas in a 2-stroke engine will kill it)

$115 asking seems like a really good deal, which throws a flag up for me and makes me think something is up? But, maybe because I am in Canada, I am not use to seeing these types of prices? Is this the norm or this an exceptionally good deal for you guys stateside as well?

Aside from all that, if it runs good and everything is legit, then I say grab it up. You may just get it for $100 even?

Just remember if it starts hard or runs funny like many do CLEAN THE CARB. Thatís the big thing theses days. People run. Ethanol gas bad the carbs just start to slowly crud up. Often as not a new cheap one off Fleabay is 😧 $15/or less. Toss on and go
Thereís a lot of nice late model stuff out there for a song thatís easily cured like that. Above all KEEP THE BOOZEGAS out of it and anything else small engine. Even if you have to get cans filled at the airport itís worth it..

Sorry, I meant to say these snow blowers have been around since at least 2009, I didn't mean to imply yours in your ad was an 09, it could be much newer, or maybe even older?

I seen one the other day for $60 and the owner said it was 7 years old. The new single stage blowers are 721's and 518's.

Wow! What do new ones go for stateside? I paid, about 3 yrs ago, $850 on sale, for this one. I believe the regular price was close to a $1000? You guys get some wicked deals compared to us!

These older Toro were the best single stage, today it's Toro and Honda. The Toro uses a ribbed auger belt, has a very strong Suzuki engine.

However $115 for a good running machine is a top price because of the age. It is a fair price to the buyer and seller. If you look on Craigslist, there are a ton of single stage machines, no one wants them, they are cheaper but they are MTD machines, not the better Toro.

Not bad price, brother had the exact same one and got $200 for his used when he sold it to upgrade. Ran great, he just needed a larger one due to drifts his driveway gets were too much for it.

Those Toro throwers are hard to beat. It's worth a look see.
