He says this is true?

] asked him about this listing. He claims Toro made blowers for Sears? Is that correct?

I can't say with 100% certainty what that is..
But I'm 90% confidant its not a Toro,
And I'm 90% confidant the seller has no clue who made it either,
So he made up "Toro" because its red, and because it sounds good.

I'm thinking the same thing but in his email back to me he was certain that Toro made sears blowers. I didn't want a confrontaion with the guy but I don't believe he's correct. He actually changed his listing as he said he would. He originally had it simply listed as a Toro. When I called him out on it he said he'd change it.

He's probably heard all he wants to hear from me. You ask him, Scot.
I'm sure it's probably going to be something like 593.xxx

I don't know.. But those plastic wheels on bucket should be flat steel I'm quite sure. They look like lawnboy (others too) mower wheels. I had a 10hp sears about that vintage and the bucket wheels were flat steel. Seen others too with steel wheels. I personally would not give that much for that old (and rust in bad area-like seams) for a 5hp. You can get a decent used 6-8hp for that used or just bit more. A 5 or 6hp single stage would serve you well too for that size hp. just my opinion anyway.

Ain't a'all interested in buying it, Geno. We want to know who the heck made it? And you're correct. It should have steel wheels. Somebody on this forum has a few of them that he's restored but I can't remember who it is.

I think the 726 was toro's first two stage snowblower which didn't make the scene until around '71. it would be kind of odd that toro would make a 724 for sears and not for themselves but its not a toro. around here you can find some CL ads saying that its a toro but usually it a troy built or some other old red snowblower
