a good friend past away

My good old friend toro 2450 has past. He died of cancer and dents .All though his heart still pumped his auger could not go any more . For 13 yrs we blew many walk way's together and to say the least ,he was a good friend to have with me in my plow truck.
going to miss you partner.

It's a sad sad day when you loose a loyal friend. Hopefully your new partner will work out.

HS 928 TCD. It's Canadian eh! (Sure I'm done modifying it, for now, until next time.......)

We all know that the day will eventually come, but it is never easy. You could always get it taxidermy(clear coated) and you could simply use it as yard art.

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.

I don't no at this time what will replace the 2450 . What I will miss is how light it was . But it was loud and did not use it late at night at any res house. The dawn fall to all the new single stage blowers is they weigh more but they make less noise.

Sad to lose a good friend who gave many years of faithful service, but easier to replace with another of the same than if you lost your dog (or worse).

Toro 3650 (primary)
Toro 2450 (recent purchase)
Toro PowerLite (3hp)
Craftsman 3/20 (also recent, will likely flip)
Toro 1800 electric (gone)
Shovels (and aspirin)
