A Rare Find (I think)

Here's a 1984 Toro edger, with a 3.5 horsepower horizontal shaft Suzuki motor (4 stroke). Dad said he bought it for about $400 back in 1984 for his business which he started in 1983. It hadn't run in probably 10 years, I barely cleaned the carb (ran out of carb cleaner and didn't even fully disassemble it) and the thing started right up on the fourth pull. I probably will need to clean the carburetor a bit more for it to run better, but this thing in its current state probably still has more life in it than a new craftsman edger lol. Anybody else seen or still have something like this?

I also need to invent some sort of blade guard for it and change the oil as well.
