Toro 824 identification

The sticker to identify my Toro is gone. It has 3 forward and 2 reverse settings using a hand lever. The carburetor has a threaded adj for the fuel mixture and no dump valve, one idle mixture screw and one idle setting screw.
What is the hose that comes from the manifold and drips oil for.

Sounds like the breather hose. Not really suppose to drip oil, but it can happen if the drains get clogged, the machine is tipped, the piece is installed upside down or the rings are really bad.

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

you could probably identify the year of your machine by the serial number of the motor

I see you seem to be a Toro guy. You have the 8/24 XL highlighted on your list of blowers. Is there a reason you've highlighted it? I have a couple of old (1985-1971) 8 hp. Toros', along with a 6/24 with Powershift -1995. I like the old blowers because they will just eat snow. But the moveable scraper blade leaves a lot of snow behind. The 6/24-Powershift is under powered for deep 15-20" snow. It still keeps on chugging, but could use more hp. I'm not a fan of the power shift system, which is why I noticed the you had highlighted the successor to it. The 8/24 XL.

Welcome to the forum Canuck

Since you don't have it's numbers the next best thing is to post pictures of it. The engine can help nail down a year but only if it's the original engine.

Molly, just send him a PM please as it's specific to him, off topic and doesn't really add anything to the thread

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

my xl824 is a powershift also. I had talked to a guy with an xl 824 powerthrow and forgot all about it, he only wanted $250 for it but the powershift was only $100. the powershift feature isn't really needed and I've never used it. my favorite toro's are my 2450E and 521E as for the powershift I just wanted something with more power
