VERY expensive Toro

Wow, we should start buying these old machines at the 25-50 bucks they usually sell for and paint them. Just in case he takes the ad down he's asking $1,500

Nice museum piece. The auger looks a bit like their current snow master series, being single stage.

Some people think there must be a strong collector market for antique snowblowers, like there is for classic cars or even tractors..

There isnt..

Yes, there are people who collect them, but they are SO rare that they virtually dont exist..
There might be two Toro collectors who would be willing to pay up to $400 for one of these in good condition..but they live hundreds of miles away, and its almost never worth it to ship an old snowblower. 99.999% of used snowblower sales are local pickup.

Is there someone local to this machine who wants it? Maybe..but there could be none. And if there is one, he has no competition! demand is low, which means value is low.

I would say this is worth $200 tops. The seller is simply delusional.

It's worth what someone will pay, and there's a nutbag out there who will pay for anything. He's not selling a snowblower per se' he's selling nostalgia, history, etc.. I'm sure there's a movie company or something that needs a prop. I don't know if he gets it, but selling nostalgia is profitable, selling a snowblower isn't.
