Freebie Toro...

Got this Freebie Toro From the Original Owner's Son, Hadn't Run in Years. After the Brass Jet Snapped, I replace the Carb with a "$12 Special"(Not Available to the EFI Crowd), and got the Engine Singing. Had a Bad Impeller Bearing, and the Shift Linkage Needed some Work. Now "Ready For Action".

Dang! Hard to beat that price jack!

I’ve got that same machine. Super aggressive; when I want to clear the driveway in under 10 mins before work, this is what I reach for. My only complaint is that it doesn’t have a creeper / granny speed.

I was always curious on those drum type augers, as all mine are the regular, open, full bucket, spiral rake type.

I never used one of the drum type, but would think the open, full bucket, open, spiral rake design would chomp through a good snow amount with better performance. ???

Id say the drum design is pretty darn effective

I've always wondered what's the drum design's purpose? I never saw any other make other than Toro which has them...

I believe its purpose is to meter / control the amount of snow being fed to the impeller to minimize clogs.

It's your typical axle/rake setup interconnected using a bolt however Toro claims that a shear bolt isn't needed since the auger gears are hardened...the engine will stall before the gearbox fails.

I personally use shear bolts in mine; they're not hard to change. I had to grind off all of the auger housing welds on mine & reweld due to ~1/4" of twist...i assume from impeller ingesting something.
