Watch this vid.
Want my opinion? No. Those trs blowers are murray made and nearly put JD out of the snowblower business. This is my humble opinion. Others may have different opinion. It would have to be in pristine condition, like new.
Thinkng a little more about this.... I suggest you don't buy it. You can do much better getting a Toro or Ariens... Even if you have to spend a few bucks more.

I'd have to agree but I own a Murray and a TroyBilt and they are acceptable daily use machines. A true JD built blower might be worth it but one a "trash"26.

That's my opinion but if you had 20 some inches of snow and it started I don't think you'd care what anyone said about it. I'm not saying it's trash it's something someone else said and it's always stuck in my head when I see a TRS model. Most people will slam Troy's too as they are pretty cheesy. Not that they are bad just aren't built like a tank like the older stuff was or a Honda is. I've been very happy with my Troy as it's been the main machine doing an almost 400' gravel driveway for a number of years now.
I just think you can do better for 300 bucks.

Make sure the windows are up before the snow plow goes by !!

2010 TRS26? I don't think so. I think they stopped the TRS (murray built) production back in the mid to late 90s and then JD sold their snowblower line to Briggs and Stratton. Got any photos?

This is a TRS-26 and I would not pay more than $120 for something in that condition. In fact, I wouldn't pay more than $100 for something like that. IF the auger spins and doesn't make bad noises and the bucket isn't rusted out bad. This one is.

I thought the same thing but I didn't want to say because I am not quite sure exactly when they stopped.

I am 97% sure that the TRS and TRX models were last made in 1999 or 2000:

Scroll down past the Cub Cadet and Bolens section, to the JD section.

I got my TRS26 and TRS32 in September of 1994. They get much TLC and are still running great.
Some parts are difficult to find such as the drive sprocket.
