    One of my non-snow customers offered me a snowblower she has for sale the other day. It belonged to her elderly sister who had to be moved into a home this past summer, has been garage kept and looks like new other than some dust. We don't know its age but it was only used for her house and was not used at all last year.

    It is a single stage Toro CCR2000, 50:1 two stroke, very light weight. I don't really need another snowblower but I figure it would be great to just be able to throw it in the back of the truck without needing ramps etc. for smaller jobs.

    She called a Toro dealership for advice and they said she should ask $400Cdn for it, but she said I could have it for $300Cdn (what, about $260US?)

    What do you guys think, is it worthwhile, or just a toy? I already have a Yard-Man (by MTD) two stage that has been fantastic, but there is no way of loading it by myself without dragging ramps wherever I go... especially in the dump truck.

    I'd want to see it run before I hand over any cash, thats for sure.

    If the blower is in GOOD condition it sounds like a decent deal. The benefit of having a lightweight thrower in the back is great. I just hate going out and spending 400 bucks or more US for that. It all depends on how much blowing you have to do. If it is just residential sidewalks, then the lightweight blower is the way to go. If it is any more then your are best to stick with the ramps! Good Luck!

    Ya know?

    Id put mine up against any of those two stage deals and toss more snow faster easier and do a cleaner job.

    I think I have the 2650? or 3000 something but you couldnt sell me a two stage machine for a nickle.

    I cant for the life of me figure why anyone would even use a 2 stage after the advent of the power curve deals.

    Mines only one year old and has low miles. hangin on the wall of the garage and I gaurantee itll start 1st pull, and will last me the rest of my days.


    Hell my dad has this small lawn boy deal and its 20 years old and starts first pull every time. He likes it cuz its really light weight and he doesnt need much.

    Two stage.....pffffft!

    Sounds like I should check into it a little closer!

    Thanks guys!

    I'll let you know, and even if decide against it, I'd probably list it for sale here for her.
