The Toro S200 is a snow blower manufactured by the Toro lawn goods company. New Toro S200s are no longer sold by Toro, but it can be found on eBay and other used goods stores. It was a light snow blower with a light engine.


The engine in the Toro S200 is a 2.5 horsepower engine. It is a two-cycle engine with a recoil engine starter. The RPM of the Toro S200 engine cannot safely operate past 4,000 RPMs. Going any higher risks ruining the engine. Carefully monitor your RPMs during use.


The Toro S200 engine cannot take pure gasoline, which can damage and potentially ruin the engine. Instead, you must mix the gasoline with two-cycle engine oil. The mix ratio should be 4 ounces of oil per each ounce of gasoline. Mix this in a separate gas tank before putting it in your engine.


The Toro S200 uses an electrical starter with a 120-volt system. This means it has a simple on and off ignition key instead of a pull starter. The spark plugs have a gap of 0.035 inches.

Toro 850 Leaf Blower Vac Specs

Toro's 850 Super Blower is a hand held blower that runs off electricity -- as a corded model, you have to plug it into an outdoor wall socket to use this blower. Toro touts this machine, which features a three-part outlet tube with a curved nozzle, as one of its quiet models. The manufacturer recommends this residential-grade blower for clearing light debris from areas such as patios, lawns, bushes, garages and walkways. The 287-803 is a 12-amp, 120-volt motor. To switch between the two functions, you must remove the blower outlet tubes, remove the device's inlet cover and insert the included three-part vacuum tube into the blower inlet, rotating counterclockwise until it locks. Throughout the five years of its production, the Toro 850's specifications did not notably change from year to year. The hand held 850 Super Blower weighs slightly more than 35 pounds.
