Question Planning shed, need dimensions of Toro 1232 thrower

Hey guys,
i dont have access to my machine at the moment and i cant have it measured since its away.

im looking for the dimensions of a Toro 1232 power shift (pretty old school).

i searched high and low on the web and am coming up empty handed. im trying to plan a shed, the smallest possible to house the machine in.

if someone would be so kind as to measure the longest and widest dimensions for me of the machine so i can figure out how small a shed i can get away with without having to guess at this.

if you have any shed advice im all ears!

thanks for your help!

Are you wanting as small as possible due to price or size limitations? The one piece of advice I can give is make the shed as big as you can, because no matter how big it is it will always be just a little too small for whatever project you have going on.

Also, check this out:

Please direct all snow blower questions to the forums and not to me with PMs.

lol thanks gents

im limited on size for my outdoor space where it will be located. the 'shed' i have in mind is more of just a sealed outdoor storage unit... its (interior) is 38.5" wide 6' deep and 54" tall. i know its tall enough, and deep enough, im just questioning the width at the handles / tires ect getting into that space. im pretty sure it'll be ok because the swath of the Toro 1232 is 32", i dont think the handles stick too much further wider than that? i wont know for sure till someone measures it though...

kind of a wet damp climate here during the winter... the storage unit i have picked out would be ideal for my home and yard given the location to protect the machine. but i just want to be sure regarding the space the 1232 needs width wise particularly the handles...

I would not suspect that the handles would be wider than the bucket. If your handles were "32 wide, that would be a little difficult to control the machine.

And unless this machine has a dual wheel, two on each side, they should be within the cutting width of the bucket. Insofar as the bucket width, I would consider at least one inch for the skid shoes on either side and enough room to get it in the shed with not beating either up. I'd say that with the shed you have mentioned, you are right at the limits.

Garage:
MTD....2 stage(modern 8.5 HP) not my favorite
Honda HS622 TA-B - acquired at an auction- nice machine for it's size.
Toro S-140- Picked it up on trash day... it runs, sort of.
Yamaha YS 240 TB "Ricky" latest Craigslist find- on the bench now.

I dkn,t believe the handles are as wide as the blower itself. If that were the case you'd be a little spread out trying to hold onto it.

It also say the 32 inch bucket will be the widest part. My powershift is only a 24 and the bucket and the wheels are 24, while the handlebars are only 20. There are two types of skid shoes for the powershift. Ones that are left and right specific part numbers that tuck inside and behind the bucket, and the newer universal (left and/or right) that stick both in and out. If you have those newer ones, that will be your widest point. Otherwise 32 is your number.
