Toro 724 worth $35?

Neighborhood garage sales, Toro 724, 3 forward speeds, no electric start, the Toro with the drum and doesn't need shear pins, runs good, surface rust on the top of the auger housing. I don't know the condition of the belts, don't care, or friction disk.

They are asking $35. Should I jump on it? How much for a flip in the fall/winter?

1986 Ariens ST522, 5hp, 22"
1995 Murray Craftsman 10hp, 29" w. 12" impeller
A 1983 Real John Deere 10hp, 32" w. 12" impeller, 16" auger, 20" high front, cast iron gear box, chains
Noma 9hp, 27" w. 12" impeller
Noma 5hp, 24" w. 12" impeller, 20" high front

Dynamark 8hp, 26", 12" impeller, for sale
Several other 5hp, 8hp, several 2 cycle, all for sale

if it runs and works i am kind of surprised you didn't grab it if you got a place to store it till next winter. does it have electric start? if so and there is no issue with it like leaky tires or anything like that i would probably ask $150-200 if it is in good shape and ready to go. i don't usually worry about belts too much if the machine is that cheap. usually belts are about $10 or less unless the machine is one of the ones that take an odd sized belt.

I second that, any runner in New Hampshire worth $100 min in late fall.

Old Toros don't sell well in SE Mass...I've got some beauties I lovingly went through and are pristine....can't sell for s$*t....Powerstrokes are just a little better. I would only pick up a Toro if I wanted it for myself...not to resell. For $35 hard to go wrong though.

If I could find one like that for that price I would grab it as long as the engine is good and it is not badly rusted. I saw one on Craigslist today listed for $100. It seems that a lot of older machines don't have electric start (like my 1979 Toro 421).
