Toro power shift info needed

Looking at a used 824 power shift. It's a 1992 model. Seller says he got a new one and has this since new. This being my 3rd snowblower of this season I'm not sure what I should check on it. I've never had one of these and hoping for some advice on the areas of failure on these. Guys asking $450. I think it's too much but we have had a rough winter so I'm hoping he'll be more reasonable when I look at it.

It looks like that is a Powerthrow, not a Powershift.

I am not familiar with this model but I am sure someone here will chime in with info for you.

The meltdown is under way ...

Just my opinion but that's a bit high for a PowerThrow but it's likely due to everything in your area getting grabbed up.

I'm only 99% sure but from the picture and my magnifier it's not a PowerShift.
If you already have something I'd pass on this one until the seller comes down on the advertised price or you run across a PowerShift or something you really want.

Lots of nice 824's out there for a lot less.

.
Make sure the windows are up before the snow plow goes by !!

Slap me, in the second picture it's definitely a Power Throw.
I'm thinking $250 or less ?? In my area it'd likely go for under $200 as we've had no snow and there are a glut of used on Craigslist.

I've been surfing CL just for fun. still a lot available, despite all the snow, I'm thinking some folks have upgraded or something because lots of used and not too bad machines in MA/ NH area Cl.

I'd keep lookin'

Thanks I'll keep looking. There's a snapper 724 cheap at 250 but that is it around here. The next toro is priced at 695. I think winter is over and I don't have a machine I'm seling mine tomorrow. Maybe I'll expand my search area a little
