From the ad:

1968 and 1969 Toro Suburban 12 Garden Tractors. Both tractors have 12 horse Kohler engines. The 1968 runs and drives good, new battery, includes mower deck and snowthrower attachments. The 1969 Suburban 12 runs and comes with a mower deck, but I don't know much more about it. Package deal for both tractors with attachments - $600 cash. Contact 651-two-one-four-1051 if interested, no texts please.

Don't know squat about these, but it seems like a fair price.

Go get them, they are in excellent condition, rare, and underpriced for what they are. I haven't seen two of them in a room before, other than at my house.

I don't have room for one of the mower decks, let alone two tractors.

No excuses, find the room, build the room, be like Will. :)

Are those shaft drive? The engines are sideways.

Yes, but with belts included.

Could you tell us a bit more about them? The mechanics of them? In the video, I believe I saw a 3 or 4 speed gear shift. Did Toro build them themselves? Are there other re-badged units based on them or vise-versa?

They are rebadged Springfields, which Toro bought out in 1966. The engines are 12 horse kohler k series belt driving a driveshaft underneath. That driveshaft goes into a 1:1 right angle gearbox, that then belt drives the 4 speed Peerless 2300 transaxle. Stout little units weighing around 400 pounds a piece. The snowblower is a rare find in itself. I bought my 10 hp Toro, a 1967, fr $400 with only a snow blade and mower deck. My 1967 Toro 12 hp was around $250 I think, and had only the deck. Both of those run, but then I also paid $250 for a 12 hp Springfield that has a frozen engine and no implements. See the bargain here.

Oh, and I have only ever seen one of those later Toros in person, and never another, other than on the Internet.

The ad has been edited, it's down to the red one with a mower deck for $225. The white one with the blower sold.

Then you better hurry, that is still a good deal, and the truck does have headlights for a reason.
