Bought a 88972

Got fed up fixing and swearing at my 1979 Toro 421 and decided it was time. Got a deal on the 88972, used one time and returned to the store because it was "too big" for the woman that bought it.


Now I am itching for a snowstorm to come here to Western NY.

That's going to be a big change from the 421 !! Hope you get snow soon so you can play with it.

I got my wish. We got about 4" of snow and I busted it out. Ripped through my driveway like nothing was there.

Definitely a change from my old toro 421.
