I have a Toro Powermax 826 OE which is two or three years old. I let it sit with gas in it for the winter.

I can get it to start after many tries and then when I press the lever to engage the auger it will stall out.

I should say I am not very mechanical. I looked on youtube and found a video about cleaning a Carburetor. Might that help.

Hi ya! You may want to repost your question in the Toro section because not too many people will see that here in the introduction thread. I'd provide a link, but I can't see a way to do that on this Tapatalk app.

Yes, the carb cleaning will probably do it. Just make sure that the video is for the same model that you have.

On my old Simplicity I used to add some Stabil to the gas can I used at the rate recommended on the bottle. Might be an idea after you get the carb cleaned out. I was always kind of bad for leaving old gas in it over summer.
