The Commander is in the house

Found this on Craigslist a few weeks ago, for an unbeleivable price, and answered the ad. Never received an answer. Forgot about it until Sunday morning when I received a email that it was available. Well, after my girls got dropped off at school, I traveled 80 miles to go see it. Saw it, tested itand brought it home. Oh and the previos owner also gave me a 1 gallon gas can with mixed gas as well.











and next to it's little brother

Good Luck with that!

FYI: I had remember reading a recall on certain models
CPSC, The Toro Company Announce Recall of Snowthrowers | CPSC.gov
Check into that!
PS My similar Honda takes Straight gas?

Thanks for the recall info. Called Toro and my gas tank is excluded from the recall.

Says on 2 different places 50:1 on the mix.

I didn't know you had to mix gas on that model? I assumed it took straight gas?

Makes the other one look "cute."

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.

Yeah that's what the person who owned the one I am rebuilding now had assumed. They straight gassed it.

I am hoping to be able to get it going. It's the same basic engine, smaller unit. CCR3650. But has chute direction control which I like. It was discarded, my dad picked it up for nothing. He gave it to me after giving up on it. I fixed another small machine for him so it's mine for the fixing. Hopefully.

I like that commander better though, That's nice find and makes a good addition to your garage. It's a pretty sweet little machine ! I hope it runs as sweet as it looks. Can't beat these for smaller storms, they are pretty speedy if your drive is two or three cars. I am thinking it will be faster to clear my drive on a small to medium ( 2-8 inches) storm with that single stage Rtek machine than with my Powershift.

The meltdown is under way ...
