It is, they never made them with anything else. Other than the cosmetic rust it also looks to be in really good shape if its original. Its at least 20 years old, from the chromed handle and the shade of red probably more like 25.

pull cords been replaced and scraper looks worn, use these to negotiate. make sure to let it run for about 5 minutes and then turn it off and try to restart it. if it wont restart without letting it coll down, the coils bad and you shouldnt buy it unless its dirt cheap. it is a very common and expensive failure on these ccr3000 and ccr2000 blowers, but if if its in good shape you will own one of the best single stages toro ever made

I bought it sight unseen for $50, it starts but bogs under heavy load according to previous owner. Good running machines like this are going for $200+ around here, I felt $50 was worth taking a risk.

Its was usually the ignition module, not the coil that went out on those.

If its bogging down, probably a carb issue, so sounds like you got a good deal.

I have a CCR2000E. Only difference is the electric start. When mine bogs down I put some seafoam in it and it cures the problem.

Even at $50, watch out for $$$ replacement parts; I've owned two of them. Good machine when all is right.

Hi, all. I'm new here and this is my first post. I bought a used CCR2000 back in the nineties....it was a beast! It stayed at the house when I moved, so I had been searching for another and just located one a week ago. This one has electric start. I sanded most of the metal parts. Painted the chute and applied Herculiner to the side panels. Then I sprayed clearcoat on the plastics. I think it turned out pretty well. I'm ready now!
