better than shoveling!

4

This doesn't handle heavy or wet snow well, but with that being said it is still better than shoveling! It is lightweight and even with snow that is deep, you can rock this back and forth and it will eventually get it. I would recommend this, but if you live someplace that gets a lot of snow, you would be better getting something more heavy duty.

Good Light Duty Snowblower

4

This is a simple, easy to use machine. It has electric start (plug-in extension cord to unit and push button). 4 stroke engine (dont add oil to gas) Fairly wide (18") and good throwing power. I actually dont use the electric start feature as it easily pull starts even when cold. It has a removable, reusable air filter. When one purchases new, they supply an 8oz bottle of 5W30 motor oil to put in. You must do this before using the unit or you will burn the engine out! It is easy to use, however not very manuverable, due to small wheels. It wants to skid and pull on icy paths or deep snow. Not great in snow more than 1 foot deep. The hood on the thrower boom easily pops off, and is difficult to replace. The angle changer is nice and stays put. It is easy on gas, I used it over 4 hrs w/o having to refuel! It's good unit if one does not have a lot of area to clear or doesnt get a lot of snow. Ive given this unit a workout this winter! If u use electric start, make sure u unplug the extension cord after unit starts! I dont recommend keeping plugged in while in use! Performance Does a good job of clearing snow, as long as its not deep! Handling Hard to handle in deep snow and icy conditions, wants to skid and pulls to one side. Small wheels, Toro could put bigger wheels on this unit and it would be a ten all the way! Durability Seems rugged, doesnt bog down too easy. Ease of Use Easy to start, maintain, not easy to manuver. Easy to add/change oil, get at spark plug, pull start handle, plugin starter. Has key so no one can use it w/o. Easy to clean. Engine Power Great in most conditions!

Toro Snow Thrower

5

Had a Honda snow thrower that was constantly in need of work to keep it going. Finally got tired of it and when I looked for a replacement I found this one by Toro. Really happy that I did. I've changed the oil and cleaned the spark plug each season and haven't had any problems. Highly recommend this product.

Easy to use and does a good job Performance Does a good job and can be used easily by a small person. Durability Our first toro is still running like a top - we expect this one to as well. Engine Power Good enough to clear 12 inches easily.

Worked well til it broke

I bought my husband this snow blower for his birthday, I thought the price was ok and expected it would work really well. My husband liked it and has had snow blowers in the past, so he knew how to use and maintain it. It worked well for about 5 uses and then wouldn't start. I don't blame the company though, things happen and stuff breaks. I was frustrated that it happened so quick, but it was fixable and we haven't had any problems with it since. Durability I chose poor because of my personal experience but I highly doubt that its a common problem that I had, and I wouldn't expect others to have the same malfunction. The snow blower seemed like good quality except for the one bloop that made it stop working briefly. I am mechanically challenged.. So I'm not sure what the problem was, only that it was easily fixed. Ease of Use I couldn't use it, but my husband had no trouble!

This is quite a wonderful snow blower!

Toro snow blowers are pretty durable, and I think this one, which I bought quite recently, will definitely last a very long time. I have not had a Toro before but a couple of my neighbors do, and they have been using their Toro snowblowers for almost a decade. So, I am pretty satisfied with my purchase. The snowblower so far has worked very well in all the snows we have had so far this winter. There have not yet been any blizzards or crazy large snows so I do not know how this particular snow blower will work in heavy snow. It has definitely worked very well in the snows that we have had this year! It's also very easy to push, so that's another plus. i would definitely suggest everyone buy this one.

This was perfect for us for the size of our drive and walkway

4

I purchased this snow blower shortly after I moved into a house that I was going to need to take care of the snow myself, I have a very small driveway and walkway and needed something just the right size. We haven't really had our "major" storm yet but for the seven inches we did get this snow blower did the job well, it didn't get bogged down when it was a bit icy and it was easy enough to use that my seven year old was able to use it to blow snow to make a snow fort for himself. And it was perfect for the walkway, not once did I have to shut it down to unclog it, I'm sure once we do get a big snow it will perform just as well.

Clears Snow Quickly, without Clogging

5

Starts well, just make certain you don't use gas with ethanol in it, this engine needs a higher quality fuel. Clears heavy wet snow easily, and does a large driveway in less time than shoveling it. Handling It vibrates a little, but not badly. Durability Make sure you take care of it-have it checked and serviced on a regular basis and it will work well. Ease of Use Very easy to use Engine Power I've never had a problem with stalling in heavy snow

TORO 421 QE SNOWBLOWER EATS SNOW!

5

OK...HERE IN THE MIDWEST YOU CAN EXPECT SNOW. I BOUGHT THIS SNOW BLOWER USED AT 250 BUCKS AND THOUGHT THAT WAS PRICEY BUT LOOKING AT A NEW ONE LAST WEEK I HAVE A DEAL! I USED THIS A FEW TIMES THIS YEAR AND I WAS GRATEFUL ON HOW EASY IT IS TO USE! THE SNOW JUST FLOWED OUT OF THE TUNNEL LIKE WATER AND THE ELCETRIC START MAKES THIS SO EASY INSTEAD OF THE PULL LINE OTHERS HAVE! A BACK SAVER! I DO LIKE THE FACT THAT YOU DO NOT NEED PRE MIXED OIL AND GAS. THIS IS VERY EASY TO PUSH THROUGH THE SNOW AND YOU CAN DICTATE WHERE YOU WANT THE SNOW TO LAND. IT IS ALMOST LIKE PUSHING A SELF PROPELLED LAWN MOWER! THIS SNOW BLOWER SEEMS VERY STURDY AND TUFF. THE RED COLOR IS NICE AND THE CONTROLS ARE VERY EASY TO GET TO W/OUT TWISTING OR BENDING TOO HARD OR TOO MUCH. I LOVE THIS SO MUCH THAT I EVEN SNOW BLOWED MY NEIGHBORS DRIVE WAY AND MADE A WALK WAY TO THE MAIL BOX. THE GAS LASTED QUITE A LONG TIME AND WAS EASY TO JUST POUR SOME MORE IN AND GO! SO MOTHER NATURE..BRING ON THE SNOW BECAUSE I AM READY FOR EVERYTHING YOU GOT TO THROW...OR FALL!!
