Toro SnowMaster 824QXE, $250, Carlisle MA

Best deal I've seen on a SnowMaster, it's an 824QXE:

https://boston.craigslist.org/nwb/fo...970974221.html

Ad title says $200, body says $250. I emailed the seller, he said he meant to say $250, but would consider $200. Says it developed a fuel leak in 2nd season, but maybe that's a simple fix?

I'm very tempted, but trying to be good, and not add another machine.

Looks like a nice deal on a good machine

I'd bet it is not the source of the leak but if it is, a fuel tank is $58

Get over there ASAP! Around here I'd have posted some pics of that in my driveway already.

Paid $250 for a 724 last year and flipped it for $450 very easily. WELL worth the money.

Sno-Tek Modded, 15"X-Track tires (Now has same X-Track tires but 13"x4" for better fit), 254cc engine LED light and hand warmers.
Snapper 6/22 sold but not forgotten. Was my first.
Ariens ST1027LE workhorse and going strong.
New 2017 Ariens Deluxe completely rebuilt after losing a fight with a forklift.

Do the rubber paddles need to be replaced often on these machines?

I've heard people talk about replacing paddles after several seasons, with a single-stage. But from the looks of things, the Snow Master only has a small section of rubber paddle, in the middle. Presumably that's the only area that touches the ground, unlike on a single-stage where the entire paddle surface is touching the ground. I don't know if that makes the SM rubber section last longer (perhaps), but that small size might at least make it simpler & cheaper to replace, vs a larger single-stage paddle.
