My Goodwill find from this spring....

Bolens 500 single stage, it's a 4 stroke Tecumseh, I don't know the model year but estimate it is about 1987 because it has a handlebar control that the operator must hold to engage the auger...cost me about $32 with tax.

Wow, our Goodwill's refuse to carry, or accept gas OPE. Not sure why though.

Garage:
MTD....2 stage(modern 8.5 HP) not my favorite
Honda HS622 TA-B - acquired at an auction- nice machine for it's size.
Toro S-140- Picked it up on trash day... it runs, sort of.
Yamaha YS 240 TB "Ricky" latest Craigslist find- on the bench now.

It does not run right now as I took the components apart to fix a bad oil leak and clean up the entire machine. Whoever owned it before stripped the drain plug (!!!!) byt I was able to retread it and stop the leak. Compression is excellent and the machine is complete but it needs some TLC, fuel lines, carb rebuild, new belt, repair carb air box, etc. Goodwills here carry gas OPE all the time, this morning my 4 mile away local store had two push mowers and two gas trimmers outside....but they don't take tv sets or computers.

Yeah, our's no longer accepts tube TV's, but they accept computers. Crazy, you would think they would at least have a more consistent policy.
