Craftsman gas tank

I have a Craftsman snowblower, model # 247.887801 and the gas tank came loose and fell down. I can grab it with a pliers and pull it up to put the gas cap back on and it will stay in place. I know this is not the solution but I have no idea how to open this thing up and get to the tank. Has anyone ever seen this?

Thanks

It's a Craftsman. I made a mistake with my first post and was thinking it was a Toro but it's my lawn mover that is a Toro.

Google Craftsman 247.887801 owners manual. Their are some exploded views at the back. You will have to probably remove the chute and the upper cover, and re-mount the gas tank. It looks like it sits in a wire cradle, with 1 bolt, holding it in place.
