Hello all!

I picked up a late 80's Toro 8-32 (model #56145) last fall for $50. Previous own stated it was junk. Took it home....new battery, traction belt, spark plug, air filter, fresh oil and gas, adjusted the carb and it fired right up. Waiting on a new Gator blade to really judge on the capability of this machine. I am also working on a slick rat rod paint job and some mods to the "safety switches" to finish it all off. I might hit it with some performance mods in the future???? We will see.

Started mowing with it this spring and quite impressed with the speed and handling of a mower that is as old as me. All in all, $150 invested in a mower that is perfect for my 1/4 acre lot. Any advice or hints will be greatly appreciated!

Welcome to MLF, congrats on the new machine! It sounds like you've already fixed up quite nicely and have it in good mechanical order.

Keep that up and it'll last you a long time!

Enjoy your time here and thanks for posting.
