My Old toro 832

As a few of you know, I purchased my 832 just before the snow flew last fall and I used it all during Chicago's year of record snowfall last winter.Come spring I decided it was time to do some service, during a close inspection I noticed the impeller bearing was bad along with the impeller being badly bent.
After sourcing a good used impeller with the help of "Powershift93".

Today was the first time I had enough snow to actually use the machine this season and I have to say the old girl impressed the **** out of me. I made 3 passes down my 450ft driveway in 12" of heavy wet snow, it ran smooth, never balked and threw the snow a good 30'. My neighbors 1 year old, 26" Troy Built could not take a full bucket of snow, he was stuck taking only half a bucket at a time. It was no competition for my 1971 Toro 832!!

I'd like to thank the people of the forum that helped me out with parts, advice along with the technical expertise.
Thanks again,
Jerry...

Nope, no electric start....It would be nice. I may add it some day.

ClassicCat, Thanks for the compliment...I resisted the temptation to disassemble it and do a repaint. I did repaint the inside of the bucket and the impeller since I took these pics.

another 832

Just got an 832 here locally in Norfolk, VA. We don't often get much snow but when we do, it's memorable. Hoping this guy will help me forget it quicker. It's running good, had some adjustments to make on the friction disc, carb cleaning. It's needing some lumps taken out of one impeller. Looks like it ate a golf ball or something. Or tried to. Tickled with it and haven't used it yet.
