    Toro 726 TE: What should I know about it.

    I bought a 726 TE this fall and absolutely love it. Are these 726 TE blowers pretty rare and did I get a good deal when I paid $175 for it. I'm pretty sure I got a good deal after doing a little research. It needs a new starter (problem came with blower). I can't hardly bog this thing down and it knifes right through the snow plow drift too. My neighbor just bought a new 3 stage cub cadet, but I think I have the better blower. I would appreciate any and all opinions and information. I love the blower so far and I think my neighbors kind of envy my 726 TE as they see it perform. There's no performance anxiety with this machine. Both my neighbors across the street from me run Cub Cadets and my next door neighbor runs a 5 HP MTD I believe. My other next door neighbor works at CHS and uses a loader to clear his drive.

    If your serial starts with 24 you have a 14 year old mule. Just make sure you give it a sugar cube and carrot at the end of the season. That unit was overpriced when it came out and for that reason it wasnít around long. Those that bought them found out the price was worth the quality. End of the season make sure you drain the fuel system entirely, tank, lines and carb. If you donít know how to drain the carb, spend a buck on a dozen donuts and talk to the mechanics at a good repair shop on how to do it. You want at system which is totally dry for storage and you should have a unit which will serve you well for many years.
    This is only my opinion, and many will say it ain't worth a darn, as I'm only a retired grease monkey instructor and not a professional mechanic. Use what I post at your own risk as you know teachers only know book knowledge.

    Post the year and serial # and the carb can be found.

    Once you find the correct carb, the parts diagram will show how best to drain the carb:

    SRT, unless I have lost it he isnít asking about a carb. Heís just asking about opinions and info about the new unit he bought.

    No, I know that...

    I was adding to your post re "winterizing" (or "summarizing") the machine, IE, the carb especially to prevent varnish, etc..

    Specifically, either dropping the bowl (to rid ALL fuel), or if there was a drain bolt, etc...

    We're on the same page..

    Sounds like a good deal to me

    I suggest that you just make sure that the augers and the impeller aren't rusted to their respective shafts. If they are there's a risk that the shear bolts/pins won't shear if your machine ingests something it shouldn't.

    Just ran across this thread- IMO, you got yourself a nice deal. Bought mine new in 2003 ( $900 ) , still throws snow like new. I also have a starter issue, but starts with rope - if I resolve the electric starter problem, I will pass on what I find

    Is that a two stroke motor? That would be an unusual machine I'd think. Oops, just saw the other post about the two stroker.
