CCR2500 Toro Paddles
Can anyone tell me if these paddles off of a Toro snowblower are okay? I picked this up by the side of the road and it started on the first Pull, I want to go through it and clean it up but rather not have to put any money into it, I was hoping these paddles are good to go but I can't tell how much is worn off. How much material is gone compared to a new set of paddles.
Can't really tell outside the machine. Stock Toro paddles have a wear indicator hole at about the 9 and 3 o'clock position. Those appear to be stock because they still have the inserts in the middle 4 mounting holes, most people don't notice them and throw them out with the paddles. If installed and they don't touch or almost touch the inside of the chute area near the scraper bar, they're done. You can use them, but they'll throw snow back at your feet and not clean to the ground

What JT said. Out near the edge there should be tiny holes about 1/8" dia. By the outside edge I'm meaning to the extreme left or right edge of the paddle, and out near the wear edge. Even when new the holes aren't very far from the edge. So if you don't see the little holes you need to replace them. You can see the tiny holes in the pic on the lower paddle off to the left.
