Answer: 
The Toro 621 QZE has an electric-start (E) mechanism (i.e., plug in an extension cord and press a button to start) in addition to the recoil-start (R) mechanism that is in both snow blowers.

Answer: 
The "E" in the 621 QZE model indicates the unit has an electric start capability by plugging the female end of an extension cord into the unit and pressing the start button. The "E" model can also be started with its pull cord..The "R" in 621 QZR ;indicates the unit does not have electric start capability and can only be started by its pull cord (R=recoil)

This snowblower is relatively light and works well on our driveway. We do not have a steep slope, but this one is a replacement for a very heavy one and works so much easier.

Answer: 
I have a uphill driveway. With just 4" of snow the auger system easily pulls the Power Clear snow blower up the driveway. With 12+" of snow you have to do some pushing as the auger doesn't always find the concrete on which it pushes against to pull the unit forward. However, once it digs down to the concrete it pulls forward with only a moderate shove by the driver.

No. Toro also includes the Quick Chute feature on the Power Clear 621 QZR, which is cheaper as it doesn't have the electric start feature (E), only the recoil start (R). The QZE comes with both.

My wife bought the QZE model just in case I was on travel and she had to use the snowblower. I think the QZR is about $80-$100 cheaper.
The Quick Chute is a favorite feature as it makes it very easy to change snow throwing directions on-the-fly while walking up and down the driveway. Read Less

It is toro's biggest engine for the single stage. If handles so much easier and gets the job done so much faster. I am very pleased so far.

For 2014 Toro also offers a 212cc engine; it is in the Commercial single stage mower, the 721 R-C. The 163cc engine is in the Residential mower. Warranty is the same on both if used for non-commercial residential use. The Commercial mower just has beefed-up parts and a few less bells and whistles.

To answer your question, there is no specified horsepower ratings for these mowers and I've not owned a 208cc snowblower to be able to do an apples to oranges comparison. I can only attest that the Toro 163cc engine is more than powerful enough to remove 8+ inches of heavy wet snow (or 12" of dry snow) and throw it 30+ ft as I had to do this in the first 3 weeks I owned my Toro 621 QZE. It is also probably the newer engine. You mentioned comparing for the same amount of money. For snowblowers cost is most dependent upon the features each unit has. Toro uses the exactly same 163cc engine in its $500 snowblower as it does in its $800 machine. In the end either engine will probably do a similar job. Read Less

Engine displacement may not be an apples to apples comparison in different machines. Toro has Power Curve technology and chute configuration that makes the machine throw snow more efficiently.

Power Clear 621 QZE 21 in. Single-Stage Quick Chute Gas Snow Blower-DISCONTINUED is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 145.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use Pull choke, pull to start only once, push choke in and away you go!
Date published: 2016-12-26
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Blower value for up to medium sized driveways, sidewalks and walkways. As a retiree in not too great health, I bought a 170 lb. 22" two stage blower in Dec. anticipating the kind of snow levels and drifts we had last winter. Then I realized it would be a struggle for me to physically maneuver such a hefty blower, and I decided to swap it for a top quality unit weighing half as much but still having all the features I wanted. The Toro 621QZE fitted the bill perfectly, doesn't need oil added to the gas, and if it's built anything like the 3 HP Toro I previously had for 12 years, it'll provide the reliability I want fo many years. ,

Rated 5 out of 5 by from features compared to the honda are outstanding the one major feature that sold me was the shoot adjuster on the handle. this feature is far greater then all other brands.performance on first storm of the year in new jersey had me thinking about selling my two stage snowblower to all concidering this model dont hesitate

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dont let the size fool you... This puppy may not look very powerful compared to those two stage blowers, but trust me when I say that this can chew up snow right down to the pavement with so little physical effort from you (and I even have to go uphill on my sloped driveway!) that you will find yourself wondering why oh why didnt I buy something like this two years ago (winter 2011)! The assembly was done in ten minutes - hardly anything to do other than put some oil and gas in it, and tighten up some screws. It starts up right away after the first or second pull, you dont even need the electric start (though its nice to have as you get older). I'm only 44 years old, but this has already saved me so much back ache by clearing my driveway in a record time, I couldnt really believe it. I dont usually do reviews for products, but I felt I had to let folks know about this gem. Yes its a bit expensive, but its well worth it - even at full price. I ended up buying it at full price, but within two weeks found a competitor selling it for cheaper. I took a copy of the ad in to customer service and they not only gave me the difference in price, but they also gave me 10% off on top of that, so I'm a very happy camper. This is the tool for you. Young or older, its got the power you need and wont take much effort to use. What more can you ask for from a blower?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Have not used yet - VERY SIMPLE Setup! The unit was VERY simple to setup/assemble. So much so that I was impressed to the point of surprise. Only the oil cap to fill the unit with oil was in a poor location (very awkward and significantly error prone to spill) to disappoint a otherwise flawless design. Unfortunately, the oil filling will be a yearly occurrance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to assemble / great to use! Received my new snow blower and kept it in the box until the day before the forecasted storm. Put it together the night before in just a few minutes. Took it outside to use it the next afternoon - worked great! Couldn't be happier. Saved me a bundle in plowing charges.
Date published: 2012-01-31
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Decision EVER! I'm a petite woman who was always told that any snow blower big enough to do the job would be way too much for me to handle. After reading dozens of reviews, I decided to give the Power Clear 621QZE a try. OMG!! It's fantastic. Even easier to handle than my power lawnmower! It easily plowed its way through way deeper snow than I expected it to (10-12" deep on the back deck that I'd neglected through a number of snowfalls; i.e., not fluffy, new-fallen snow). I couldn't be happier. Only wish I'd made this purchase LONG ago.
Date published: 2014-01-31
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Don't buy this if you need to clear a steep driveway. This is a great snow blower as long as you want to clear something that is level and smooth. I wouldn't recommend it for a driveway that is steep or rough. It pulls me down the slope and there is no way to control it. It starts great and blows snow like it should but I don't like the "self-propelled" feature as it is noisy and lacks a way to control the speed other than tipping it up away from the surface, leaving the snow in place.
