Toro 824, which year?

Hello, new member, first post...

i am looking to buy a used snowblower in the 200-300$ (CAD) range.

I am looking at some old Ariens, Toro or John Deere...

There is this Toro 824 for sale for 200$.

Can you help me with that? is it a good model? which year is it? (i don't have the serial number or the model number)

Thank you for your knowledge

welcome. if the engine is a briggs and stratton look at your code number the first two numbers will tell you the year on the toro. from what i can tell from the photo it looks like a 1989 but i could be off a few years. i have a 1972 832 not much difference but i love it.
