Just finished a 2005 Troybilt StormTracker 1130

hey folks...just some impressions of the Troybilt Track machine I just went through. All in all, it is just a typical MTD...good value for the money but flimsy and cheap. I don't have snow to try it out, but I measured the distance between the impeller and the barrel of the housing......almost 3/4 inch.WOW......

The shroud looks cool, but I think it is a PIA to work around. If I were to keep this I'd do an impeller kit....I might do one anyway. The more I work on MTD products, the more I appreciate the quality of the older machines...especially Ariens and Toro. The MTD machines sell as well as the others and in the same price range used....but plastic bushings compared to ball bearings????

With that much of a gap between impeller blade and housing, the thing probably falls flat on its face in wet snow.

Selling or keeping?

Shiny red blowers sell fast. Sad but true. Both gone within hours while I sat on a couple St824 for a couple days all within the same price range. Also I heard those engine covers were to lower sound decibels to operaters and conveniently make the old Tec look modern.
