Toro 421 snow blower

Anybody ever have an old Toro 421 snow blower? A customer gave me one, he said the float was sticking, and he bought a new one. I took it apart cleaned the carb, and it runs perfect. I was just curious if this old model is any good?

I've always used single stage, but there isn't much difference in the 2 stage models. I had a new ariens a couple years ago, I sold it because it was to heavy and hard to maneuver. This is a smaller model, I kinda like it, even if its an oldy. I will wait and see how it works next winter, if it sucks I will sell it, I will paint it up first.

They are pretty well built, or you could say built to last. The metal is much thicker than the one they sell today. I have one of these but it is a 7 HP. The transmission is strong it does not slip like my ariens does when it gets wet. The snowblower works well but only throws the snow about 7-12 feet (not too far compared to my ariens 30+ feet) If you look at the impeller housing there is about 1/2" space between the fins and the inner side of the housing, this gap reduces how far the snow is thrown. By adding tire rubber to two of the four impellers you can just about double the snow throwing capacity.
