Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 80 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good for the price I bought this after the first snow for a small driveway(about 40yrds) and walkway at my house. We got about 8" and it was warming up by the time I got home and started removing the snow. It handled moderately wet snow just fine, although it was a bit slow going compared to a larger more powerful snow blower(to be expected). The really wet stuff was a bit trickier, I had to push it into the snow until it started to stall then pull it back and repeat that until I got through it. But it go through it all. I had to resort to a shovel to deal with the piles left from the city plows because that was mostly ice and slush. November 14, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by For small driveways like mine (15'x25') I am a brand new home owner and definitely needed a snow-blower because at my age there was no way I was going to shovel the driveway and sidewalks... I went with this Toro after reading the reviews and specs... Also the price was very good for what you get... This snow-blower is nice because of the ease of the electric start and its features... What I like about it is the power of blowing the snow 20 to 30 feet away... It is easy to direct the chute, and the light weight of it makes it easy to control and move about... Now all I hope for is it lasting for many years like my previous and current Toro machines did/do... December 13, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Live in a townhouse I've been in my townhouse 20 years and everyone thought I was crazy for wanting a snowblower. If you live in a townhouse, you know there's only so many places you can put your snow, and then you get plowed back in. This is only about 60 lbs so I can handle it easily. Can pull it up my steps to get it back in the house as needed (although I chain and cover it when I know we will need it). Otherwise, we keep it on our deck covered so that we don't have to walk it around from the back since we are in the middle of the group. We just put cardboard down to roll it through the house so as not to damage our floors. Now when I go out to snowblow, my male neighbors run out to "shovel" snow. I move my car and let them clear my spaces and then let them clear theirs. This thing clears the snow right down to the pavement. Again, it is very easy to use. I'm 58 and needed a knee replacement when I bought it, and it was easy for me to use. Now I'm not the crazy one. September 28, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by good product Nice product, I like the new way to do the electric start. The old way, every time you wanted to use the electric start, the battery was dead. You should change the angle of the plug so that older guys like me could just reach down and plug it in. The was it is now I have to get down on the cold ground with my bad knees and look under the cover to plug in the cord. Other then that I like the product. I understand all of the warnings in the instructions, but you really have to decide if you want to take a chance using this thing and loosing an arm or a hand. The instructions give the idea that this machine is not user friendly. November 22, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Maybe it will do better on a dry snow This is my first snow blower and as yet I've only had one opportunity to use it. Unfortunately, it was a very wet snow, about 4 - 5 inches deep, with the temperature hovering around 32 degrees. Since it wasn't very cold, I elected to skip the electric starter and used the pull cord instead - the machine started easily on the first pull, which is something I've come to expect with Toro equipment. The blower had trouble throwing the snow more than a couple of feet, and frequently snow packed in the discharge chute, blocking it completely. I had no trouble clearing the blockage. I hope it will do better on a colder, dryer snow. November 19, 2014
