    I just picked this one up today. It's a non-bbc, pre zone start Suzuki..I'm guessing mid 80's..

    I have no clue. I imagine it MIGHT be 4.5 hp.. But I don't know for sure. The dude owns a OPE repair shop, he said take it away.. Like I said, He said it may have tranny probs, but I bet the engine will run well with a little work, it's got excellent compression. Here's some more pix..

    Model #22035
    Ser.# 4004388

    I'm just wondering how old it is because I hope I can still get any and all parts to fix the tranny, etc. I don't know If Toro does stupid stuff like changing parts around just for the heck of it, like Auto Mgfr's.

    It's really not in too bad shape, and sure looks worth fixin'..
