New or used Toro Power Max

So I have been looking for a new snow blower. Been looking at a new Toro Power Max HD 10/28- $1799.00 out the door & may be able to do better on price.
I also found a used Toro Power Max OXE 11/28. Says it is a 2015 model with the Tecumseh engine. The machine looks like it is in showroom condition, not a scratch. Owner says he only ran the blower for 3 hours, then drained the gas and stored it in a heated garage. Reason, he bought a truck with a plow and don't use the Toro. he is asking $1400.00. I can make him an offer but what is the used machine worth?
New machine with a warranty $1800.00
Used machine,looks like new, no warranty $1400.00 perhaps $1100.00 or $1200.00
What do you guys think? what way would you lean?
Thanks in advance for advice.

Seller will have a hard time at $1400. Waaaay too close to new


He's basing his sell price on the current model's MSRP, not his older model which probably sold for $1499(?) new.


$1100 max IMO


$1100 also buys a NEW Ariens Deluxe 28" FWIW


.

1989 John Deere 1032
1979 Toro 5/24 38040 (now a 6.5/24)
2015 Snapper Pro SW30 52" Mower

The model is a 38650. I seen in another thread when I googled Toro power max 11/28 I came across a thread on here. a member Hanky done a review on his 2014 Toro 11/28 and his has the Tecumseh engine. His review says he likes it very much. I just called Toro and gave them the model# & serial# spoke to someone & they say they machine is 2009. They stopped making that model in 2009 & the serial# was never registered with them. Could this be leftover laying around that shop got deals on? Is the seller telling stories ? But this thing does look brand new. He also has hard cover of the owner & parts manuals and also bought a brand new Carb for it that is still in packaging. HHHMMM???

My Toro was listed at $2,699.xx Canadian, I am not sure or was told it was a late 2013 or early 2014 the dealer brought in and the person he brought it in for backed out of the deal. Dealer got it in Feb 2014 and I bought it Nov 2014.
The last 2 years I have had no problem with it. From what I read they no longer sell them so it would be last of the big ones.

2014,TORO 1128 OXE Power Max HD

2009 would make sense having a tech as there was a lot of left over 08 motors still being used on 09 machines.

Op could also option for the 928 ohxe for $1499 same machine smaller motor i ran a 824 for 30 years and never worried about moving snow, that toro just kept working

I also spoke to a tech. at local very reputable shop. He also confirmed it is 2009 machine. He said it is a great machine & suggests a fair price for the shape of it is around $1200.00. He & Toro states the machine sold for $1800.00 new.Buying used with no warranty on the machine I will make the guy an offer & see if I can get a really good deal. The tech. I spoke with, His shop sells Toro & Ariens. I spoke with him about if i decide to buy new. They have the Toro 10/28 Power Max HD for $1799.00. They also have a handful of 2016 Ariens Professional 28 for $1899.00 I asked what machine he prefers & what machine he likes best ? He thinks the Toro HD is a better machine. He sees less problems with the Toro and states it is built just as strong as the Ariens pro if not stronger. He says the Toro's just don't break. He says the Ariens pro is great Heavy duty machine but likes the handling of the Toro a little better. He says I can't go wrong with either machine. He also says that Toro stands behind there machines with top notch customer service second to none. Saving $600.00 - $700.00 on a machine would be great but NO WARRANTY, If a plastic piece on it breaks ( lifetime warranty ) will it be covered since the machine was never registered ? HHmm. a few things to still think about. What are your thoughts ?

A quick call to Toro would probably answer the question about the plastic issue and whether they would honor their lifetime warranty for the plastic. Me, I am on my 3rd and 4th Toro's being an 1987 flat paddle pup and a 1996? power curve. I wish I still had the first two pups from 1978 and 1987 in my brood herd of snow throwers. I keep hoping the JD junk gets stolen but no luck, haha.
