Toro 828 propelled TWO stage 28″ SNOW blower 110v start Picture and Description:

Power Shift Drive, runs well, READY to blow snow NOW

Up for offer is a politely used TORO Power Shift 828 two stage self propelled snowblower with a 110v electric starter. The model # is 38570 and the ser # is 5902781 which makes it a '95 production model. This snow blower was used by a consumer user, and was maintained during the time he owned it, which is one reason it's in such good shape now, and it also was stored inside which is another reason it is very clean. One very unique feature that this unit has is the "Power Shift" feature - this unit has the ability to move the main drive axle to the back side of the unit - closer to the operator , so that the wheelbase is greatly extended (see pictures ) - which then puts a GREAT amount of weight on the front end , and that means the front end won't pop out of the snow if it hits some hard pack, AND you can forcefully lean on the handlebars and increase the traction of the tires without raising the front end. Actually- when the axle is in the rear position you almost can't lift the front end- by design. The power shift feature works through the gear drive transmission and is actuated mechanically for you as you work the clutch controls. There's a knack to it, but we'll show you how to do it properly. The Power Shift feature is no longer used on current models- NOT because it didn't work , but because it took too many parts (therefore too many $$) to keep the feature in the new frame design that Toro freshly introduced about 3 years ago (which by the way, the new model was rated #1 by a leading consumers testing group). To add to the performance value- this unit is equipped with a Briggs and Stratton 8.0hp L-head (flat head) engine (not very common on snowblowers, but has good power output), which has been checked over as needed . Last year the carburator was replaced with a new one and it functions as it should. The engine has an active alternator output wire in place now that is ready to be plugged into so that you can install a light kit as an option if you so desire. This unit has Toro branded large Snow Hog lug tires (16 x 500 x 7) with steel (not plastic) rims that have slight surface rust on them, but there are tubes in the tires already and the tires hold air as they should. The belts are in 60% good condition and have some age cracks on the inside of the belts but are good for this season. We have checked the Power Shift drive system and it shifts as it should and powers the wheels fully with 4 speeds forward and 2 reverse through a gearbox - this unit does NOT have a rubber friction disc drive as most units use. We noticed that occasionally the shifter felt spongy (or indecisive?) when testing the unit, but the more we ran it the better it felt - the grease in the tranny get pasty after a while which sometimes makes the unit feel funny when shifting. The bottom scraper edge and the skid shoes are at the 60% wear point and still have usable life left in them. The auger input shaft support bushing/bearing is showing slight wear , but is still fully usable as is. The poly chute mount clamps and chute worm gear are a little sloppy- but we will include those parts with the unit at no addtl cost to the auction winner. The 21" tall housing and 28" clearing width will make sure that this unit is going to laugh at the worst of snow conditions- and just keep going! Toro quality and performance in the snow market is legendary- and this unit is a great example of why that is true! This unit has been inspected and quick serviced, and is ready to go to work now. All features are intact and fully functional, and all safety shields are in place as when new. We have done some light detail work as needed - and this unit is not spotless- but it certainly is better than average condition . There is some paint worn off the inside of the discharge chute, auger housing, auger drums and the bottom edge of the frame, but very little rust is present. It has some lite discoloration on misc. control parts , and there is a little surface rust/ fuzz on the engine - but we would prefer to show the unit as it really is, and not hide the few imperfections that there are. We will include a reprint owners/operator manual with the unit. Again- the unit is functional as it is now- The current replacement cost of a comparable 8hp current model is 1699.00 - 1999.00 and our reserve is LESS THAN 25% of the lower current replacement cost. Key features are: Briggs and Stratton 8hp winterized engine 4 speed gear drive forward- 2 reverse w/ Power Shift feature 110v electric starter- works from your wall outlet power - and this engine also has a PULL start also BIG Snow Hog lug tires in good condition Active alternator wire in place to power an accessory light Light touch clutch lever w/ auger lever interlock feature (hold one lever and they both stay engaged) METAL lower chute and metal discharge hood design Ready to do battle with winters worst Attribute List Model Number 38570 Product Year 1995 Beginning Serial # 5900001 Ending Serial # 5999999 Product Name 828 Power Shift Snow Thrower Product Brand Toro Product Type Snow Throwers Product Series Snow Thrower, Two Stage Power Shift Chassis Type Two Stage Swath 28 inch Discharge Two Stage Engine/Motor Mfg. Briggs & Stratton Engine/Motor Model # 190406-6142-01 Engine/Motor Size 8 hp Engine/Motor Type 4 Cycle Engine Starter Recoil Transmission Mfg. Toro Transmission Model # NA Transmission Speeds 4 Forward/2 Reverse Transmission Type Gear Overall this is a full sized premium quality propelled 2 stage snowblower that is used, and has been inspected, and has no obvious malfunctions, but as with any used piece of equipment - it may not be perfect... We are also offering a 30 day parts warranty with this unit just to show we're proud of what we are offering (of course we cannot warranty operator abuse- so if you try to move that big ice pile - and break something due to that abuse, then obviously we cannot cover that occurance). We are also offering you BRAND NAME used equipment - what's that mean? It means that there are numerous servicing dealers with parts available - so if and when you need parts, you're likely to get what you need- QUICKLY! We've got parts IN-STOCK for 40 year old Ariens snow blowers - but we've seen generic brand unit's that were 5 years old that you couldn't find parts for them. Bottom line is you get what you pay for - so a name brand unit (new or used) may cost more than a generic- but you will be able to keep it running much longer- so the economy becomes long term- NOT short term. This unit cannot be shipped due to the lack of crating, it's heavy weight and the unique shape of the unit- therefore local pickup is required. We request payment within 7 days, but we will hold the unit up to two weeks to allow the auction winner to make pickup arrangements (unless other arrangements are made with us). "Google" Sherwood's Power Equipment for an easy to follow map. We're only 60 miles No. of NYC or 90 miles So. of Albany - right at the crossroads of I-84 and I-87 (NYS Thruway).
