year of power shift 1028

Hi savy toros owners. I am looking at this snow blower, only have a pic so far.
The guy says max 10 years. I know it's older.
Can anyone tell me how old it is

Power shift 1028
I have seen pict of toro 2010 and they seem newer then this one.

So max 2004 so it's min 15 years over.

Are they good machines or they had problems with them???

Just found out this has no electric starter ....

starting 10hp by hand at -20c is no fun if a bit stoburn with the carb.

Can it be added easily or almost sure flywheel is no good and has to be changed also to add electric starter ???.

nah! 5w30 oil i've fired by hand at minus 20 here .it should have a starter unless it failed and was never replaced, also should have a differential on the axle which makes for easier turns or locked for major traction

note the grease fittings on the legs are my own doing as the bushings like to seize to the axle and spin other wise making the legs bad . it's a easy do and helps retain the bushings
