toro 824

I could buy cheap a toro 824. don't know the details or exact year, Just pict.
I would like to know is it friction disk driven or it has a transmission.
The guy probably got it free and tried to rebuild it. he says only first works second gear moves barely and third doesnt work.

thanks

All I have for the time being is brief description and pictures but you can see it's old. Adding a 2nd pict.

I don't know much about toros so thats why I'm asking you conaissors !!!!

I have looked at different models, and even me can see this is 80 or 90 model just buy handles levers on top. But I don't know the internals if it's friction disk or transmission like the power shift models.

He says is probably just a spring adjustment, so in theory it would be friction disk ???

Thats what I'm wondering ...

remove the rear plate, on the tractor unit, where the info sticker is normally from there you can plan see if it's disc or a trans

So the more I look seems a 1990 Toro 824 Model: 38080

It has the same chute that is rounded.

I know how to tell lol.

I just don't have it yet. I wanted to see with Toro owners would know by the pictures and features about what year it would be and disc or transmission.

If it is a transmission and slips, that's a different project.

I did ask the owner and I'm waiting for an answer.

Friction disk transmission. My guess is that it's a 38080, early 80's. Is a fin missing from the flywheel in pic 2? In that condition it should be *very* cheap.

Just saw it !!!!!

What would be the repurcussions ?? unballanced??
Would it still be worth it to buy it ??

Pic in post #3, click on the pic to get a larger view, the flywheel looks very dark almost black, it looks to me that the fins on the flywheel are light gray, just below the gas tank shut off valve, one just above the throttle cable looks to be missing.

Yes you are right. I did not pay attention. Actually I think that more then 1 finn is missing ...

But what would be the repurcussion of missing fins lol
