I am looking at a toro 1132 (11hp, 32") snowblower. I have a 27" john deere right now, but was maybe thinking of trying a toro. I have never had a toro, but I was hoping that maybe this would be better than my MTD manufactured John Deere TRS 27. Sometimes I think it should throw the wet snow better than it does. It seems to throw the fluffy stuff fine. Maybe I just have expectations that are too high! Anyway, I am wanting to know if the toro 1132 powershift is a good move. It has the briggs engine, is that bad or good? It also has the powershift option, is that bad or good? I can buy it for $250, it is a 1994 according to the serial number. I'm sure it's not in perfect condition, but it does start and function. Right now it is at a repair shop and the owener never paid the bill, so the are selling it. This particular repair shop is small, and they deal in ariens equipment. I was thinking $250 was a steal on a blower this size, especially with TORO stamped on it. Looking for all the pros and cons of this model. Thanks!!
