quest for spotless 726te/6000 powermax

I posted my brief story in the new member intro section. I'm looking for a mint 726te/6000 powermax blower. I'm a dyed in the wool two stroke guy and from everything I've read, the 725/6000 is one of the best 2 stokes ever made. I'm fortunate enough to own one of the last Toro 2 stroke Pro Recycler walk behind lawn mowers. It has the Suzuki 125cc motor and should outlive me by many years. Does anyone know where a secret NOS might be hiding or where I might find a really clean used one. I'm a real Toro fan, partially because parts are readily available and I've had really good luck with them. If there's another brand that's equal or better feel free to direct me that way. Thanks for the help in advance!

Neat/unique machines and they were rare even back in 04-06 ish during the production period. At least up here in NJ.

If you find a NOS machine post some pics would love to see it!

1979 Toro 5/24 38040 (now a 6.5/24)

Just a bump for good luck. I found one in Michigan in excellent condition posted 7 days ago and it was already gone. I'm confident I'll find one, but everyone please keep they're eyes peeled for me please. Thanks

It says 9hp where the 726/6000 claimed 7hp, but I'll get in touch with the seller either way. Thanks for looking out for me.

that's like a 724ox that mike found and it is not a 9hp motor its 9tq if you read the pic. 205cc & 9ft lbs gross torque so we know it isn't a toro 6000 / 726te
