Grabbed this on the way to work today (trash picking in a suit...gotta love it). It is HEAVY! Rough shape (paint peeling and a little banged up) but the engine turns and that usually means I can fix it. I have a soft spot for Toro since my dad always had one when I was little; brings back some memories. Anyway, didn't have much time to really look it over for numbers, so does anyone know what it might be? Model/year? Thanks all.

Sweet find! Looks like a 4 stroke suzuki. Does it have a clutch?

Thanks!

I believe it does have a blade clutch (right lever in my photo). I should have taken a picture of the control panel also; I was kind of in a rush this morning.

Hopefully this won't be too hard to diagnose/repair. How are these engines to fix up as compared to your regular Briggs and/or Tecumsehs?

I'm thinking it's a Model 16785; looks like a mower that a member here has (jwor620) in the "Post picture and model number" thread (pic of his below):

The one in that pic is a 2 stroke Suzuki. They look very similar though. There are a bunch of different models it could be though. They're pretty simple to work on, plenty of parts around and very reliable. Excellent find!

Very nice! Should have posed with your find, suit and all.

Have fun fixing it up. You'll like the quality of that machine.

If the weight is any indication of the quality, I'm sure this mower is bulletproof. Just to tie up a loose end, it's a model 20624 from 1987.
