Mid nineties toro 824xl for $300- good buy?

Hi,

I'm looking at this Toro 824XL on Craigslist,

I asked how old it is and he thinks from sometime in the nineties. Is $300 a decent deal for it? From my research, it seems like they are built pretty well, but I figured I'd ask the experts!

Toro 824XL snow blower electric start
Toro 824XL snow blower. 8hp 24 cut. starts first pull. has an electric starter. $300. if you see this ad it's avaliable.


So, is that a good deal? What should I look for on the unit?

Not sure but doing a Google image search shows the same bolts in some pictures, so maybe it was just that era?

Some of those Toro's had the buckets bolted together instead of welded. Looks to me like you can unbolt the side panels of the front scoop. Could be useful for maintenance.

Please direct all snow blower questions to the forums and not to me with PMs.

Heck, PS93. You may be correct. Someimes I'm not very observant. I just don't remember seeing them.
