Toro Power Max 1028, $200, Boylston MA

Seems like quite a good price. Says it's repainted (and looks kinda sloppy), so don't know if flaws are being hidden. But $200, for 10hp, 28", and triggers steering, seems pretty good.

That looks like maybe it had a hard life. Really should have used some masking tape to keep the red off the plastic and I'd have sanded and painted the black plastic bypass housing crack repairs all black so the whole thing matched. Those grey epoxy repairs to the cracks look a little ominous. Like it ate something it couldn't pass.
A little armor all on that control panel would go a long way too.
But it does seem a low price for a newer 1028.

No effort at all trying to make it look presentable. NONE!

I didn't "put that together" (ha-ha) that the grey things on the plastic were repaired cracks, but yeah, that looks like JB Weld. Is that the plastic that I've seen people say has a lifetime warranty from Toro? Even if not, I guess if the repairs failed, you could probably replace just that piece.



It definitely needs a thorough cleaning. But if it's mechanically sound, it seems like a decent use of $200, to me.

Yup, that does seem odd. But hey, if their lack of effort gets someone a better deal, that's OK by me. I've bought things where a little work would have gotten them running, and they could have charged a lot more. But instead, I got a good deal.

I have to believe they put the same amount of effort into maintaining it.

old/old one having a techie on it for power, with it looking used hard and put away wet .little servicing still 200 is a good fast sell price
kiss is right about looking like it ate something for which it is not covered under the lifetime warranty , the warranty is for normal cold cracking/breaking. not eating pavers. they take about a hour to change out,
