Power Clear 518 ZE 18 in. Single-Stage Gas Snow Blower is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 635.

I live in West Michigan where we receive a great deal of lake effect snow from Lake Michigan. I clear a large driveway (30' x 80') and move the snow to the side of the driveway. I also clear a large cement patio. The snow blower has started with one or two pulls and runs well. I have not had the need to use the electric start. This has started easily. This replaced a Toro I had from the 80's. The old machine was a two-cycle engine. The 4 cycle engine is a nice change. I was able to move wet, heavy snow as well as light powder snow. The snow easily reaches beyond the sides of the driveway from the center so I do not have to clear the same snow a second time.

Only complaint would be the location of the oil intake as it's at an awkward angle. The electric start is simple and worked without issue now a half dozen times to date. So far have only been dealing with snow at a max of 4" but it easily handles that load. Much cleaner over the stamped concrete as opposed to the aggregate in our driveway. Overall there's just a bit more snow left behind than I expected but this being my first/only I have no context to judge other than glancing at the neighbors. Anyway, for the price and my need I am very pleased to date.

As a woman who is just 5' 2", I found most snow blowers heavy and too hard to maneuver. This model is lightweight and easy to move, even through 4-5 inches of snow. The electric start is convenient, since I'm not always sure I can work the pull start. It throws the snow pretty far and it's very easy to move the chute to a different direction. It does clear right down to the blacktop, although I find I have to angle it down just a bit to do that. I have used it a few times in heavy, wet snow and it works well, but it's probably best to clear every 4-5 inches of a big snowfall, since the machine is not that big.

I bought this snow blower for infrequent use here in SW Idaho. In a normal winter, it would be used 2-3 times. But this year is different with tons of snow. I've had the Toro for a month and used it 7 or 8 times already. It clears my sloped driveway easily -- everything from two inches of slushy stuff to 7+ inches of powder. I wouldn't recommend it for places that get lots of wet, heavy snow. Especially if you regularly need to remove that heavy, icy heap that the snowplow leaves in front of your driveway. I learned this week that this kind of snow is just too much for this little guy and bogs it down. I had a two-stage Toro when I lived in MN and it went through snowplow heaps no problem. Maybe the bigger 721 single stage can do it, but I don't know.

It is an outstanding machine. It starts easily and is amazingly powerful. I like the auger design. It is sturdy but does not damage wood decking. Easily handles 8 in of snow and will do more in 2 passes. I highly recommend it !

Started on the 2nd pull without even using the electric start for 1st use. Works well even though I've only had to use it a couple times now. Name brand I'm happy with. Very happy I choose this one. Highly recommended. No dislikes.

This product was easy to start, easy to use and did a great job of removing snow. We had a large snowfall (9") of light powdery snow and the Toro cleared it with no problems. It really moves with the power assist the blade provides. Even worked on a 3" heavy slushy mix.

This snow blower was just the right size for my property and the amount of snow I needed to clear. It is very easy to start, maneuver and is very fuel efficient. The electric starter is very nice to have but mostly unnecessary due it the easy-starting engine.
