Thanks for the encouraging words.

Is there a significant difference between 1128 OE and OXE as far as real world performance?

I see some spots here..is this concerning at all?

Here's a good read about the difference in what the letters mean with toros.

Also, are you talking about the black spot on the muffler?
I wouldn't worry about some discoloration from being heated and cooled.
Or is something baked on it like oil? Kinda hard to tell in the picture.

Quit over-analyzing, and buy it - before someone else does, and you regret it. It is in great shape.

I over analysed the buying of a coal stoker boiler and I made mistake of buying the bad one 3 years ago.

1. crap service from boiler builder
2. crap service even after offering to put them up in a hotel as they never wanted to come up here.
3. no service from local dealer who gave me a dirty look after returning bad parts
4. screwed over by plumber when a 2 day job turned into a 5 day job


The other boiler was a bit more expensive and had fewer plumbing connections and would have been fully operational in 3 days time.

I have learned my lesson as I could have left my 33 year old oil boiler in place and not scrapped it with the intent of buying a dual fuel coal stoker.


The moral of the story is buy this Toro before anyone else gets it, or at least run over there with a check for the deposit to hold it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

DO IT QUICK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You will be able to get parts and service locally!!

Does the OE lack power steering of the OXE? Is it difficult to maneuver? I need to parallel park it inside of a shed.

FYI I've decided to purchase both the 828 OXE for $350 and 1128 OE for $450. Thank you all!

That is a good choice as the spare parts are available and you will have a primary and a back up machine to use on the "END OF DRIVEWAY MONSTER".

Take them both to the dealer for service and repair and you will be in good shape. Just remember to shut the fuel off and starve the fuel system of fuel by running them dry or draining the fuel bowls on both machines AFTER YOU SHUT THE FUEL VALVES OFF before you store them.

I would check with the local Toro dealer you will be dealing with and tell him or her that you will be storing them in an outdoor shed with no heat and ask them for a good straight 10 weight oil recommendation as you will not want a 10-30 crankcase oil-been there done that with muscle strains that did not heal for weeks when trying to start a log splitter when I did not have a kerosene fired space heater. I have a kerosene fired space heater that I use for everything being the JD junk and the toro snow pups and the truck when the weather gets cold in October and that really makes life easier and the engines start with much less effort with a warm oil in the crankcase.

FYI I tried a Propane fired space heater and it did not work well unless you stored it indoors along with the propane tank and the NFPA fire code will not allow that so I returned it and bough the Kerosene fired space heater that are often referred to as a salamander heater or torpedo heater.

I just do not want you to have any problems when the wet heavy snow storms come your way this winter.

So..I bought the 828 OXE and 1128 OE.

The powersteering on the 828 is really nice.

I may trade the 1128OE for an OXE down the line....
