Need Help Determining Age Of Toro Snowblower.

itzbinniceOctober 27, 2009

Tried doing a google search but had no luck.

I just bought a Toro snowblower that I will fix up and give to my elderly brother in-law.

It's a Toro 521 (5 HP with 21" cut)

The model is 38052

Serial # is 5004797.

From the looks of it I would guesstimate late 80's, however I would like to know the true age.

Can anybody steer me to where I can find how to break down the serial # to determine age.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

According to Toro it is a 1985 model. Try the link to look up yourself.

Here is a link that might be useful: Toro Product Info Center

Thank you, I just came back to post that I found it at the Toro site and to disregard my post.

Weird system they have with serials. The years do not run consitently with the numbers.

Machine looks very good for being 24 years old.
