Well, it panned out .... I picked up my freebie today, my first Toro ... a nice older 724, great condition, fired up on first pull .... just needs a wash and wax, and probably paint the rims ...
I've had a few and never encountered an issue with the EOD...or any other snow for that matter! It does seem to spit out a little more snow to the left/port side than non drum machines so you need to leave maybe 2 or 3" of space there.I'd like to have a drum Toro to try in a heavy snow. Anyone know how well they work on the EOD?
