So im going to retire my beast 1980 Toro 1132 and also an old Craftsman 1028 tracked machine I got not too long ago that keeps on nickel and dimeing me every other weekend.

Im going brand new for the first time, so hopefully the last machine I will need to puchase. Im staying with toro, so either 1128 or 1028.

My question is. What is all the differences between the 2 besides the pivoting scraper and 1HP more. Are the engines the same brand just larger displacement? Not much info on the Toro site or anywhere else.

My 1980 11/32 has the pivoting scraper and it works like it should.
But see people complaining about them on the new ones...

I wish toro would make a 32" wide......

2K budget for a machine.

Might consider the Ariens Model # 921032 Deluxe 30 Two Stage Electric Start Gas Snow Blower with 30-Inch Clearing Width as well.

If you have had good luck with your 1132 just go for it I am only 1 and I could be expecting to much. For $50.xx I am going to try the fixed scraper. Being your in Revy I know you get a ton of snow, we just got back from Sicamause. Let us know what you end up with is your dealer there in town.? I do like the power of my 1128.

I actually live in Sicamous now...but work just past Revelstoke , lived there for 26 years or so. I see your in princton. my brother inlaw lives there.
Anyways, no dealer here, but Enderby has Enderby equipment and rentals, and are a TORO and Ariens dealer and more.
Ill probably check that out on a newer machine.

Acctually just came inside as the small gear on the shaft end just sheared off on my machine as i was blowing away.. FFS!!! :(
Thanx for the info.

I am sure it will work as it was a bolt on . It seems like every one here with a 1028 is super happy with them. My 1128 is like all other blowers now. Let us know what you end up with I sure hope it is RED. The Impellers on the OXE are big and strong, check them out.
