The engine numbers up by the electric start plug should be of help. As to just going by looks... I had one just like that in 1994. You'll need to remove those two long skinny screws to remove the plug to get the engine number

You'll probably have to date the Tecumseh Engine and assume something close to that.

The MTD data would have originally been kind of hidden on the belly pan, beneath the engine where the handles attach.

Looks to be about a 2002-2006.

Yes 02-2005 seems about right. I had an 05 Yard Machine that looked the same. Same auger housing. Not sure how many years the same body was used.

nah thats definitely a 90s model. tecumseh did away with that old style gas tank in the early 2000s and mtd started using brighter glossier colors as well.

It looks just like my first snowblower a 1995 MTD Model 640F. This machine served me well for nearly 20 years before selling it, rust was becoming an issue. Best of luck with it.
