I had gotten these through a trade deal and after some work I had gotten them all running and operating good. I don't know much on value of these machines or the quality of them. The snow champ 5/23 works great with a 5hp tecumseh motor and the tracks are in good shape.
The snapper is a 1030 with a 10hp tecumseh motor. Runs great and the lights work.
The powershift is an 824 with a new predator 346cc engine. Runs great.
They all operate in all gear also.
I'm new to these machines and was wanting information on what they could be worth and wich one is worth keeping.
I also have a powershift 624 but needs the main drive pully. Thanks for your time and info

the toro is the only one of any real value. the other 2 you will likely struggle to sell for much more than $100-150 mainly due to the age and people don't really care much for old machines. the toro might be able to get $4-500 if it works and runs as it should.

Most people won't want the older blowers because they aren't DIYing the repairs and they won't know how to get parts or don't want to be stuck with large repair bills.

The Toro with the predator is the one that will fetch the most money. I'd personally keep that one and get rid of the rest unless you're wanting to make the most money. Since the other ones work you could keep those and then sell whatever moves quickest.

they won't know how to get parts
That's for sure! Honda, Toro and Ariens seem to maintain parts availability for a very long time. Some other "notable" brands have parts listed as NLA in only 2 or 3 years. Some like the China-built ZLST1376 don't even seem to have parts available as they're being sold...

While I find the most desirable to be the Toro, they all really look like they have been outside in the weather for a long time, especially the Toro, That Predator is certainly not new except possibly by some warped craigslist standard. While I might be willing to tackle rejuvenating the Toro or the Snapper at the $100 range MAX , would have no interest in the Snow Champ unless it was free.

Thank you guys for the info. Not sure if it's worth keeping the better machine ( toro ) and tryin to sell the others or keeping the snapper and trying to make the most cash. I live in Pueblo Colorado where we don't get to bad of snow but from time to time I do snow removal on days where the snow keeps me from workin. I work concrete. Could use some extra cash for the holidays so I mite just try and sell the toro and the snow champ and keep the snapper. Idk
