Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 643 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Worst Purchase i ever made purchased unit 2 years ago (non electric start), worked great 1st year, second season, everytime it would sit for a week or so, it would leak fuel, and my garage and house would smell like gas....had it at dealer 3 times, Toro Customer Service told me i had to drain fuel every 30 days .....previous models had been recalled for same issues, dealer did recall on mine, still leaked, Toro would do nothing, Home Depot helped me out .....needless to say, would buy a snow shovel, from Home Depot of course, before i purchase another Toro Product, their products are backed by the worst customer service i have ever dealt with December 17, 2012
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by online snowblower order I hear this is a great snow blower but I am still waiting on delivery. I would prefer receiving the product before getting asked to review it. January 14, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cleaning Snow Not A Chore Anymore This little blower is AWESOME. We just had our first major snowfall this past week and I used this blower 3 days in a row to blow snow and drifts over a foot high. It,s light and easy to maneuver It will blow the snow 20-25 feet with ease. Highly recommended.. December 6, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ITS SMALL ITS LIGHT BUT POWERFUL Our first heavy snowfall in northern Nova Scotia +12" wet and heavy and this little Toro did its magic. This thrower cleared the snow in no time. It was easy to start, easy to manouver and perfect for a woman to use... December 30, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by What a trooper!!! I am beyond happy with this little 18" snow blower. It was easy to put together and came packed with the first quart of oil needed for start-up. It started easily and has has smoothly ever since. The first time I had to use it I returned home to 12 inches of snow in my driveway, which was topped with a lovely layer of ice. I was concerned but this machine easily tore through the mess. Although I had to reduce the width of each swipe, I was able to easily remove the snow. Excellent! December 28, 2012
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Snow blower is very good at clearing 6-9 inches of snow. This product is very good and well worth the money. It is easy to set up and easy to operate. I would recommend this snow blower to anyone who has an average size driveway. It will clear your driveway in no time. If you have a very long or large driveway it may be worth it to upgrade to the 21 inch Toro to save time. January 14, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A good, simple snow blower. I recently moved to an area that gets a lot more snow than I have been used to getting in recent years, so I was looking for a simple snow blower for a 3-4 car driveway. This machine has definitely lived up to the positive reviews I read. The electric start is great, the oil was easy to change (though a bit messy as the drain plug is set very close to the metal guard on back), and it does a great job clearing. It works great for snows up to 6 inches, and if you're patient and willing to take smaller passes, it does fine with slightly more accumulation. If I worked slow and took small "bites", it even did fine with the 18 inches of heavy, wet snow that the snow plow put at the entrance to our driveway. I have been very satisfied with what this machine can do for the price I paid. It is reliable and does a good job. Just remember it is a small snow thrower, so if you don't think you can be patient and let it work, get something bigger. I've been very pleased with my purchase. February 6, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Totally amazed I picked this up to keep the driveway clear while the kids were home for Christmas so I could spend more time with them and not out shovelling. We're near the coast in Maine and this little beast has devoured everything from Nemo's 24" to this morning's 5" of heavy slush. Self propelled, lightweight, starts on first pull. Couldn't have made a better buy at a better time February 28, 2013
