My good old friend toro 2450 has past. He died of cancer and dents .All though his heart still pumped his auger could not go any more . For 13 yrs we blew many walk way's together and to say the least ,he was a good friend to have with me in my plow truck.
going to miss you partner.

We all know that the day will eventually come, but it is never easy. You could always get it taxidermy(clear coated) and you could simply use it as yard art.

I don't no at this time what will replace the 2450 . What I will miss is how light it was . But it was loud and did not use it late at night at any res house. The dawn fall to all the new single stage blowers is they weigh more but they make less noise.

Sad to lose a good friend who gave many years of faithful service, but easier to replace with another of the same than if you lost your dog (or worse).

How can you just quit on it ??

Remember the famous words of Oscar Goldman: Gentlemen, we can rebuild him. We have the technology. We have the capability to make the world's first bionic 2450 !! 69Ariens Toro will be that 2450. Better than he was before. Better... stronger... faster.

Letting it rust away, say it ain't so :(

I hate retiring faithful old equipment.I had to retire an old Ariens mower because of an obsolete part. Tried everywhere to find it.And it still started on the first pull.I feel your pain.
