Murray may have manufactured it however someone with a can of black Rusto & painter's tape made it their own!



"this one is just too powerful" <- did his grandmother write the ad?

Guys, I don't have a photo yet but I bought a 523 Spirit blower. I just wanted the starter motor on it so I found this one I thought was junk on Craigslist and offered $25 bucks. I figured I'd remove the starter and then sell the rest for parts. Go figure it ended up being in VG+ shape and for thirty years old it is in terrific shape. Lots of Googling and all I could find out is it's a late 1980's Spirit.

So you answered my question that it's a Murray made blower. It seems solid and being a staunch Toro guy I feel bad keeping it but like I said it feels pretty solid. Even has the chief emblem on the Tecumseh which I think is from the 1980's.

After days of searching I found a semi manual for it. In other words it's wasn't complete. If anybody has anything to add about my "Spirit" then let me know. I think I'll keep it since it's larger than my Toro 521 in case we get a boomer of a winter here.

Thanks
