Toro 3521 snowblower

I have Toro 3521 snowblower I received from by father-in-law. First off I can't figure out for sure if it takes a mixture of gas-oil? I don't have an owner's manual and found one on-line but its not very helpful as it says 3521 & 521 snowthrower. Also, if it takes the gas-oil mixture which I think it does what is the ratio gas to oil for one gallon? Please advise.

Should have separate gas and oil.

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

it should be a 4 stroke engine . Oil in the crankcase and just gas in the tank. No mixing of oil and gas on a 4 stroke engine. I would run 5/30 oil in the crankcase.

hello jstevens, welcome to SBF!! if you have the 3521/ 521 owners manual it is correct for your machine. the only difference is the 3521 has a 3.5hp motor and the 521 has a 5hp motor. standing at the controls you can see the dip stick tube in front of the motor, 5w 30 is what it takes. do not mix oil with you gas

What do you think of this model of snowblower? What is a good price on a used one?

It is a great snowblower but doesn't command much on the used market...I see them from $50 to $125. I don't look for them to repair for resale because they don't sell.

They're pretty well built machines, heavy thick metal, especially compared to new machines. I have a 521 model. They aren't super fancy and don't go for too much money, but I like mine for being a fairly small 2 stage, it was exactly what I was looking for. Good luck with your machine!

I don't see many 3521's for sale in ,y area and when I do they are priced the same as a toro 421 ( 4hp ) or 521 ( 5hp ). I think the 3521 is a little under powered so unless it was $100 or less I would pass on it. seeing that the 3521, 421, and 521 are all on the same frame I would take a non-running 3521 and re-power it if the price were right
