Real world proof, Impeller mod throws 5x further

Some peoples kids Would it really have been that hard to get red spray paint that kind of matched Toro's. And what's up with the little spritz of white on the end of the chute ? The best part was when I saw the statement he's modified the second stage to throw "5X" further. I'm sorry but you know that just isn't true. In the photo I think I do see some rubber on the impeller blades. Then there's the asking price of $275 for something in that condition.
I don't think anyone is going to fall for this load of nonsense.

I always believed that if you don't have anything nice to say, don't say nothing at all!

"Nice Tires"

Toro 421-QZE (38585) 2008

Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.

Here in Newfoundland they use a lot of salt on the roads. I've yet to see a blower in that nice of a condition even for around here. Maybe it used only used for EOD's. ROFL Hmm that equates to $350.63 CAD using XE{dot} com. I've seen picks on the forum of fixer uppers in better condition. I'm out!

I've had a few that bad, but I strip, prime and paint if I'm going to offer them for sale.

No....no drugs. He's probably telling the truth.
See, before the impeller mod it would probably throw snow about a foot, but now it can throw up to 5 feet....

I would only offer him about 80 bucks for that rusty little thing, and then only if I had another 524 that I needed some parts for. But hey.....I wish him luck. Maybe someone out there will give him his price....
