Thumbs up TORO History Picture Page.

This is the Evolution of the Toro snowblower. I do not lay claim to any of these pics. they have pulled from the world wide web. I only claim The Brothers. so everybody feel free to post all the other models From TORO. I am not affiliated with TORO in any way . and if there are mistakes just let me know on what I have posted.

Long LIVE THE POWERSHIFT!! MAY IT NEVER RUST IN PEACE!!

From 1971-1987 the 7-26, 8-32, 11-32 used only briggs engines. the 5-26 was discontinued at the end of 1975 year. in 1976 model brought about a change toro switched wheel clutchs. which would bring in the taller tires. and a design change on the tractor body.

1988-2004 the powershift is born.

1988 brought a new school of TORO snowblowers to the masses. the models were 6-24, 8-24, 8-28 ,11-32. the first 2 years had the skids tucked up behind the bucket. and also had some weld issues where the brackets were welded to the bucket itself. by 1990 they had that problem solved. 3 engines were used from 88-95. Briggs, Tec's and Mitsubishi. Briggs were only on the 8-28 and 11-32 models. the Mitsy engines were on the 6-24 and the 8-24 and the 8-28 from 88 to 89. not many were ever made either. and parts for those Engines are no longer available. the rest of the 6-24's and 8-24's ran the Tec engines. 1995 saw the last of the Briggs engines ever to be used on a Powershift. after 1995 TORO used Tec engines full time. 1996-2004 models were 6-24, 8-24, 10-28, 12-32 and 13-32. 1996 also brought about the serrated auger. the rest of the blower remained the same.

I just saw a Mitsubishi engine the other day on a heated power washer of all things? I was wondering if those made it on to a blower..... Not familiar with them at all? Never saw one before. Gotta be tough to get parts for. Suzuki made small engines for awhile - got one on TORO GTS mower - very well made.

This is a prime example of a Powershift that is RUSTING IN PEACE.
