Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JimR Filling oil
The owner's manual recommends filling the oil in the operating position. However, without a transmission funnel the job is difficult because the fill port is located low and almost horizontal. I tipped the blower forward until it rested on the snow intake, and filled it easily. The manual states the engine will take almost the full bottle of supplied oil, so I stopped a few ounces short of empty. I returned the blower to operating position, and the oil level was perfect. No surprise leaks from filling in this manner.
In the garage everything appears perfect. Time and freezing temperatures in actual operation will be the real test. So far, so good.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ziggy Very good machine, great buy!
I read many reviews about snowblowers before buying. This one had good reviews, a few negative ones. But the good reviews out weighed the the bad. I'm so glad I bought it. I told my Husband that I was probably the talk of the neighbors. They all were looking at what a great job my blower was doing in a heavy wet snow. They were all hand shoveling the heavy snow, while I used the blower. I like the ease of moving the shute from side to side. The distance it throws the snow and how well it works in all kinds of snow. I can have the drive, sidewalks and back patio done in a short period of time. It starts with the first pull, even when the temp was below 15 degrees.This was a great buy for me. Canton, MI

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Naptown A great snow thrower for its class
I researched this for a long time. I was tempted to go with a bigger machine. For huge snows, I'll still pay to get plowed out. However, aside from horrible blizzards with super deep snow, this machine can do a great job. Delivery from HD was ridiculously quick, assembly took 5 minutes, it starts easily, and does a very good job. It clears all the way down to the pavement, throws farther than I had expected, and is small & convenient to store. The EZ chute control is a must-have. Glad I opted for a model with that feature. It makes directing the snow very easy.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Paul Good Purchase
Had a two stage thrower and sold it to purchase a smaller and more maneuverable single stage and happy I did so. We avg 30 in of snow a year and that comes in 3-8 in increments. The last storm we had was a very wet and heavy snow. It dumped just under a foot on my house and the my shiny red purchase handled it beautifully. I like the fact that is has a few more cc's to the engine than some of the entry models and that the engines are 4 cycle. No more mixing of oil although the manufacturer recommends fuel stabilizer. The extra money to step up to the 621 QZR series is worth it because the quick shoot is my favorite feature as there is no more bending over to adjust where you throw the snow. I have used it for two snows thus far and I am very happy with the purchase.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by WinterWonder Can't say enough good things about this Snowblower
Toro has really delivered a superior product with this Snow blower, providing ease of use, power, light weight, and space saving utility in a performance package.
Some of the features that I really like are the method that is used to pick up the snow off the sidewalk, which leaves very little snow on the ground.
Throwing distance is very good, and I highly recommend the QZR version which has a lever for pointing the snow where ever you want it to go.
Starting is also very easy, one pull in most cases, as long as I don't forget to pull out the choke.
I am looking forward to the next big snow after 35 years of shoveling and a knee injury. I have no doubts that this Snow blower will be able to handle it, and no more shoveling for me!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Andrzej Highly satisfied
Right after we bought it, we got a foot of snow and frigid temperatures. The blower started right up, and didn't clog once. It took me about 15 minutes to clear the snow from my driveway that holds 8 cars, including the heavy gift the village always delivers at the end of the driveway. And it's tall enough to blow the snow over our boxwood hedges. I'm so pleased we got this.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Observer107 Great machine
We've had lots snow this year, including one 16" dump of heavy wet stuff. The 621 QZR has performed like a champion. It has no problems with the plow pile even when it's had a chance to freeze up a little. It always starts on the first or second pull. It's easy to manouver and cleans right down to the pavement. I used a 8 hp two stage for a number of years and this machine is superior in every respect except maybe when dealing with the plow pile - then it's just equal. Assembly was a breeze and it uses very little gas. The noise level is much lower than my old 8 hp.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SHARKRAY EASY TO USE
PURCHASED THIS TORO JUST IN TIME FOR TEN INCHES OF SNOW HERE IN THE MIDWEST. COULD NOT BE HAPPIER. THE THOWER PLOWED EASILY THROUGH THE SNOW. WE STARTED WHEN THE FIRST FIVE OR SIX INCHES FELL. THEN AGAIN WHEN THE SNOW ENDED, EIGHT AND NINE INCH DRIFTS WERE EASILY ELIMINATED. WILL PURCHASE THE SAME UNIT FOR MY RENTAL PROPERTY.
