Rated 4 out of 5 by 12 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Well worth it. Very easy to put together, starts on first or second pull every time. Perfect size for a house with a medium sized driveway. Light and easy to move around. Can be lifted by one person Worked well even with wet snow, dry snow is even easier. November 11, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by I Love my TORO Easy to run. Nice and light. Good on heavy snow. Living in Chicago in the winter is not easy. My Toro is 2 yrs. and and running strong. The best money I ever spent. September 29, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Works great. Easy to use. I've had my 518ZR about a month now. It was very easy to set up out of the box. I used a long funnel to add the required amount of oil, filled it with fresh gas with stabilizer in it, 2 primes and full choke and it started on the first pull. I've used it 3 times now and it starts on the first pull each time. I like that it is light weight as I have to take it up a couple of steps to clean off my deck with it. It cleans right down to the pavement and will self propel if you lift just slightly on the handles. I think it's a quality item at a reasonable price. I would recommend it to anyone needing a light weight snow blower for moderate snow falls. November 14, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Machine starts with 1 pull I have only used the machine once but it worked great.The fact it will pull itself thru the snow is perfect.Only small thing is the choke it is to weak and might break. November 19, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by good product First time use was with wet heavy snow, worked just fine. November 18, 2014
