Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TaeKwonDonut Made quick work of a big driveway
I chose this unit because of the reviews on Consumer Reports. So far it is living up to those reviews.
The minor bit of assembly was very easy to do, and once completed the unit was very easy to use. The electric starter made getting it running the first time quick and painless, just plugged it in, pushed the Start button, and it roared to life!
The following day we had our first snow: 5 inches of light powder. The snow blower started easily in the very cold weather with the pull-start cord and proceeded to clear a 6-car driveway in about 10 minutes, right down to the pavement. Only those areas driven over by the cars had any residue left behind. So far I am very pleased with this unit!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Lauren This product arrived with a broken knob and the discharge chute was cracked. I can't use it and it is snowing right now.
I am so disappointed to receive a snowblower and I already have to order parts because it arrived broken. Half of the handle knob was broken and it was found at the bottom of the box and the discharge chute has a crack right where I need to attach it to the snow blower. I am unable to use it until the parts arrive in 1-2 weeks and it is snowing outside right now. I would return it to the store but I cannot lift it which is why I ordered it online. This snowblower got amazing reviews and that's why I bought it but I cannot speak about the effectiveness until the parts arrive.

My snowblower came UPS and I was amazed to see that the snowblower was double boxed. Took no time to put shoot on and oil in. Only problem was....NO SNOW! But that changed real soon. Gased up my blower and was all set. WOULDN'T START! I must of flooded it and had to leave it sit for awhile. So, I got out my old TORRO which is pushing age of 20 yrs. and did the job.. Then the snow plow went thru and blocked my driveway. So got out my new snowblower and it started just like that. It did an awesome job with the plowed snow. I know now, I will be all set for the next storm. Very pleased with it!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Steve 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 5.0 out of 5.0 by Techman Works GREAT!
I have a similar toro snowblower, maybe 18 years old. Works great. Starts first pull every time. I wanted to buy a similar one for my son who lives on a corner and has 180' of sidewalk plus a driveway. This new one is 4 cycle, quieter and more powerful than my 18 year one.
We got the electric start and quick adjust chute, costs more but well worth the money. My old one had the same features.
I also have a 2 stage toro snowblower for deeper compacted snows, like 18". The smaller power clear gets right down to the pavement unlike the 2 stage.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by jabb this is a toro 3.5
its a lot heavier than a 2 cycle thats for sures so if your looking to lug around i suggest the 2 cycle. I live in northwest indiana and some people are caught up in having not to mix gas i say when was the last time u used more than 2 gallons of gas for the winter. In the past 7- 10 years I have never used more than 2 1/2 gallons in any of those seasons. I am a tech and can tell you 2 cycle is better lubrication than 4 cycle and weighs quite a bit less therefore its not worth the extra bucks 100.00 in this case for the unit!!!!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DocrD Great Thrower
I was nervous about the one-stage thrower, but it is more than adequate for our snow...10 inches the other day was easy and the snow pack left from the plow was easy too, but required several passes. The Toro could not be easier to set up and start...outstanding design. My one complaint is the flimsy wheels...they should be wider at a minimum. On a sloped surface they slip sideways and it is very difficult to redirect. But that is minor... highly recommended.!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mikebgoblue Toro Power Clear 621 QZE is AMAZING!
I am so thankful I purchased the Toro Power Clear 621 QZE snow blower. It really came in handy with the big snow storms we had the past couple weeks in Michigan. It was so easy to use with the electric start and lever controlled chute that I ended up helping do many of my neighbors driveways and sidewalks as well. It really had no problem clearing the 8-10" of snow we had which was great to see. I looked like a hero to my neighbors........:) Thanks Toro and Home Depot
