New guy, old machine.

Hello, new here. Picking up an old Toro 1132 on Sat. Paid for it today, but didn't have my trailer. Paid $50, not running been sitting for ? Engine not locked up, so that's a plus. Looks like it's all there, though I didn't know off the bat what to look for. Hoping to save the motor, but I can swap it out easy enough if need be. Drive system looks odd compared to what I had on my Cub Cadet. Two knobs, one on the right one on the left are for turning? I dunno? 3 forward 1 reverse. I forgot my phone but I can steal a pic from the ad. It needs help.

Welcome to the forums! That's a big beast you have there! I don't know much about that one, but hopefully someone here can send you in the right direction. Solid looking machine!

Wake me up when the snow's done...

I would have paid $50 for it but not much more, well worth $50, but only because of its age and the work it will need. Many on here are still using that machine because of the quality and just keep it running. Check for rust in the metal gas tank and keep it filled to prevent rusting.

For $75 I'd have been all over that blower. Heck. I'd have gone $100.
That's a ratblower.

I have an 826 of the same vintage. Got it fixed up and running this summer, waiting for snow to try it out.
