Toro Find....BUT...

As I mentioned a few weeks ago, I ventured to Western Mass. to pick up a Toro 832 along with a single stage and a lawnmower....all for the price of gas. Sold the lawnmower, and have the single stage ready to go in the fall. Now working on the 832.

Finally got the two flat tires to hold air, and also see some welds on the right wheel clutch teeth. This machine should be steerable, but the wheels are locked. So, no freewheel ability.

Don't think I have spark, so I'll need to check that out. Someone also cut the carb heater box, so all I can see on the model is the last two numbers (02), with Type of 0180 01 and Code of 7005081.

Anyone got an idea of what model this may be? I want to find a manual and get this machine going again...

Thanks Powershift93. Any chance you can guess what the model number is for that 1971 832?

All I can see is the last two digits of the model # (02). And I do have spark, so tomorrow I'm gonna put in fresh oil and put some gas in the tank and see if I can get it to run.

OK -- Found the model # at Toro.Com -- 81832 which correlates with 1971. Now all I've got to do is find an operators manual for it. I'll look more tomorrow.

Thanks detdrbuzzard -- I'll take a look for a manual that also has information on the locking hubs.

I changed the oil tonight, and since I have spark, I put some gas in the tank and pulled the t-handle. First pull, it stated right up. Tried to get some forward or reverse movement, but nothing. Something to work on later.

The auger spins great, and boy, what a bunch of airflow out of the chute when the auger is spinning.

More to work on later, but all is well so far!

Powershift93 -- I'm confident I made a mistake....the model number of this 1971 Toro is a 31832. I also saw in another thread that I probably need to clean and lube the clutch to try and get it working again.

If I can get the left clutch to lock and release, that will give me steerable movement, as well as both wheel drive. Right now, both wheels are locked and move as obne unit. As a reminder, the right side wheel clutch is welded together, so I can't even get the rim off of the axle.

USE the 1972 8-32 31832 as it is the same machine. TORO only goes to 1972 online manuals. if those clutch and jaw hub have been welded together just let it be. you would rather have posi-traction than a one wheel wonder.
