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

The 208 is a bigger engine and usually on the 2 stage snowblowers. I bought the single stage snow blower with the 163 cc engine to replace my larger snowblower. 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.

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 144 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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! December 13, 2013
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 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. December 10, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dependable. 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! March 7, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. , March 11, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. January 7, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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.! January 11, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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 January 14, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by 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!!!!! February 7, 2012
