Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Cakeshipper 2 Yr Warranty not enough, disposable equipment
Bought mine April 2012, have used it only for 2 winter seasons, power protection lock seems to have failed and would not power on the shovel. Called Toro Customer Service, was given authorized service centers in Calgary, called these companies, need to pay for service since already out of warranty, and main issue is that they don't service electric only gas snow throwers. It's a shame I found it a good power shovel in my case where I have a number of steps from front door to the sidewalk where bulky wheeled snow throwers won't be able to work. Also saved me a few times when my car wheels got stuck in thick snow before entering the garage. Still if it's not durable it's not a good investment.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CynthiaKing it is what it is - which is awesome
Its small but mighty and throws snow so far it will make your neighbours laugh. I have abused and over-used my Toro Power Shovel and it keeps on ticking. Great for walkways but don't hesitate to use it for heavier jobs.
Go for it! For the price you can't go wrong. Think of it... 4 shovels pay for this puppy and its worth at least 10.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by pookie The product that works for me.
The reason I perfer this product is,I'm partly disabled therfore I can not shovel my sidewalk or my driveway.I live in a round settings of houseing units,there are times when I pull out of my driveway I get stuck and I have to get out there and shovel my way out,because some times the caretakers do not come out to clear our drivethrew, so we have to do this ourselves.By the time I finish shoveling everything my body is in so much pain.this product is so much easerier,when the snow is soft, it is easeier to remove and plow right threw it to clear a path.when I get stuck,the snowshovel will clear enough to pull ahead and back up to get the car out

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SylvainB Excellent product for small spaces.
I purchased this to do my front and rear condo deck that are about 10 feet X 20 feet each. I just finished both of them in less than 15 minutes for 8 to 12 inches of snow. It is light and I had no trouble picking it up to "shave" the top layer of snow. For that, it is excellent but for a driveway...it would be the wrong purchase.
The only drawback is that the snow always gets thrown in from of the shovel. no adjustment side to side but I know that going in and it would probably add too much weight to it anyway. I'm 54 years old and very picky.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by LookingRetired A Lightweight Winner
I expected a snow blower with little power and not throw the snow far. I could'nt have been more wrong. Despite the lightweight it does a good job at cleaning balcony steps and walkway. The machine throws the snow as far as 30 feet so no snow blocks the path. My spouse can even use it but as she is left handed, the buttons of the snow blower are a bit ackward to press. That is about the only inconvenience. So far we used it only on fresh snow, so we do not know how it will perform with wet snow or real heavy snow fall. It is less strenuous to use than a shovel and it does a very good job.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by hannem I wish I would've bought one of these the first time I was looking at them. I am extremely happy with my purchase and have found it quite easy to use. Although the first time using it was interesting it didn't take long for me to figure out how to use it without ending up wearing most of the snow I was shoveling. I even used it that day to help an elderly neighbour clear his very large walkway as he lives on a corner lot. It does everything it says it does and it really isn't all that heavy for a woman to use either, I would buy one of these items again although cordless would be nice...

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by BugsBunny Throw your snow troubles away!
I purchased one in 2009 and is one of best things I have done. This product eats through snow like a monster. It throws snow a far distance. I have used it in snow that is 8 inches deep with a little effort. Getting into the rhythm and my walkway and driveway are done in much less time than using a shovel and less tiring. With any product, the individual will developed a personal "style" using this snow shovel...Next and every snowfall, I will use this Toro snow shovel...Ol'e!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Merry Nice Size
This is a great size. It can be brought into my tiny condo townhouse to be stored out of the weather. It is the perfect size to scoop snow out from between the cars in the parking lot. Not too heavy, although after the first use my upper arms and thighs complained for a day or two because we had more than 6" to shovel so I had to hold it up to get rid of the top layer. It cleaned right down to the pavement. The next size up has a chute to direct the snow left or right not just to the front, but it is about half again as large and too big to bring into the house. Since we have no garage we have no place to store it and we have been told they should be kept out of the weather, preferably someplace warmer than the outside.
