Rare Toro Gas Power Shovel

I thought some of the forum members would like a photo of my neighbor's latest Power Shovel that he got off craigslist. What makes this one so unique is that besides the RARE wheel kit, it has the ULTRA RARE optional triangle shape handle. I knew that these were available, but I did not think that they were ever sold.
My neighbor now has three gas power shovels which makes a total of six between both of us.
Power shovels were made from 1983-1985. All six of ours were made in 1983!

Re Toro Power Shovel

True, both are 14 inches wide, but the power shovel engine turns at 7,800-8800 RPM where the snow pup is 4100-4500 depending which year of manufacturing. At least twice the throwing distance. I have used both.
