720E was delivered by FEDEX at 11.35am today. -2 below and I'm outside unpacking the snowblower, I must be nuts. Well it made the trip from New York OK. The boss isn't home so I brought it inside into the kitchen and started checking it over, removing the control panel, crank handle, top cowl. I pulled the spark plug and found it had the wrong NGK plug. Tested the electric starter, it operates ok. Installed a correct NGK plug gaped at .030 and when about cleaning the inside areas and the cowl and pnl.and then reassembled the parts. The scraper bar and rotor blades are ok, about 50-60% of original thicknesses. I will be using this some and will replace these and the belt after this winter. Next I pulled the left side cover and removed the belt, its also ok, no cracking or chunking. I cleaned the cover and the interior and reinstalled the belt, and checked the cable adjustment which was ok. Before reinstalling the cover I did a minor cosmetic repair, straightening the bottom edge and touching up the paint on the bottom edge. Then I noticed the left wheel axel was bent, so I removed the wheel and straightened the axel. Time to go outside and give it a workout on the snow drift crossing the driveway. I filled the gas tank and set the choke, primed twice and 1 pull. Yes it started on one pull, took the choke off and it settled down to a steady RPM. Attacked the drift, no problem 12+ inches high it just charged in and the governor kicked in and it got more power and never slowed down. It looks great and runs very good. Green machine #2 in the Green Team snow removal team.

OK, Here are pictures of the Green Machine Snow Removal Team resting comfortably waiting for the next snow. One of the pictures shows the handle of the 2006 Model 33006/Insight 1000E that is comparable to a 2006 Toro Model 38518/CCR 3650 except that the Lawn Boy has an adjustable and padded operator handle. The other is a 2002 Model 28226/720E that is like the old style Toro 3650.

Since you have a 720e, can you please tell me what the gas to oil ratio is? I inherited 1 without a manual. Now I need to put gas & oil, but can't find how much I should be putting in. Thanks, Julie

Its a 50:1 ratio, should be on the gas cap.
