Ad titile: TORO Snowblowers - $275500 (Two Rivers)

275 ea or 500 for both . . . in that condition, no way. AND especially as it's the end of season and soon the well used stuff will be even cheaper as the temps rise and the snow disappears.

Looks like it was kept outside uncovered for awhile or off and on.

$275 for an 8hp Toro that runs good doesn't sound too bad to me though for the condition it is on the high side of reasonable as it needs a complete servicing, if it needs belts, friction disc, then that pushes it beyond fair and reasonable. Look at it this way, it's snowing, your machine broke down or you don't have a machine, your not going to shovel, you need a machine now, this works and is available, and you need it NOW!

1986 Ariens ST522, 5hp, 22"

I'm with you there. Dump 18+ inches of snow on someone and you can mark up a snowblower quite a bit. The previously unreasonable starts to look very, very reasonable.

I would pass on them, I never got comfortable using my old 826 and those 824's have the same type of controls and then there is the condition of those two machines. the handlebars look like they are ready to fall apart from the rust

current machines
