New {OLD} toy Toro 826

Since I cant get the ole Ariens going, (future project) I bought another "old" workhorse.
Toro 826. Dunno the year or anything because numbers are unreadable.
She starts. She runs. Everything functions like it's supposed to, (for now).
Just gonna take her into a "pro" and get her tuneup up and looked over before I put her to winter use/abuse
Don't like and cant afford the brand new stuff so "suckers" like me to fix up and recycle the old stuff.

You've got yourself a real beast. You might want to get some different tank straps though. Those look like they may weigh down the back of the machine. Plumber's tape or some honkin' big hose clamps.

Congratulations Joe. These old Toro's were made to last a lifetime and then continue on. My son-in-law is using a 1973 Toro 7/26 that works great. I assume the seller unpinned the wheels for moving the machine. Remember to install the wheel locking pins through the wheel hubs and axle before using. The wheel lock rods can be pulled up to disengage the wheel drive for moving the machine around and pushed down to engage the wheels during operation or turning. Here are a couple links to help maintain that beauty if needed. Best of luck.

Toro Two Stage Manual- (Thank you Shryp)

I just noticed the flat bar screwed across the NEUTRAL notch. There is a switch there that prevents the blower from being started if the trans is in a drive gear and not in neutral. For SAFETY, you may want to investigate why the seller put that on?

Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.
