Hello to all, my name is Dee.
I inherited a Toro snowblower and would like to know if you guys could direct me in the right direction. I am trying to get all the basic info for this machine, I don't even know how old it is.
The model seems to be a 826. I saw a metal tag with a serial number.
Is there a website that could break down this serial number? I am told it has not run in over 6 years. I want to get her running, but like I said, I would like to have the basic info.
Thanks in advance

I will take some pics soon and post them

75 or 76 thru 86 have metal tanks in 87 they went to plastic. It has a briggs motor on it. So if you can not figure the year. They are all the same basic design. In the service manual it states that when it left the factory the auger gear box was filled with grease. For shipping purpose. But when replacing seals to use 80-90 non syntheic gear oil. The seals will not take the syntheic stuff

The specific year will depend on your serial number, which should right below the Model Number on that plate that you found it. Here's the info on Toro's website, (which is pretty useful - you can download an electronic copy of the manual: http://www.toro.com ):
