Were those augers serrated, at one time?

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.

TORO went to those things in 1996. I do not see any advantages to them. they came brand new that way.

For that price you better take it and run for the hills with it. there BROTHER CC. those 8HP BRIGGS can go from 500-700 in that good of shape.1988-1995 I my book were the best run of those POWERSHIFTS. SOME models even had those MITUZ'S ON THEM. or however you spell that name.

I think I cried a little when I first saw it. If I brought that home, I'd have to hide the frying pans...especially my 5lb cast iron one; Mrs. CC is 6' tall and has quite a reach!!!
