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 lawnandsnowguy2013 Toro Power Clear 621 QZR is an awesome machine
Purchased this machine for my snow clearing business. Probably close to 12 hours on the machine thus far. It does clear snow down to the pavement....... even the compacted snow from the automobile tire tracks as long as the tracks have not started to ice up. Performs well in both wet slush and powder. More than enough power to do the job and uses very little gas. It starts with one pull of the rope and runs quiet. The quick zip turning shute is a timer saver and the deflector has many settings. I highly recommend this machine!

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 prcd164 Excellent! THE best single stage on the market
Cut my snow clearing time at least in half compared to my big tracked 2 stage machine. Cleans right down to the concrete (you don't have to cleanup with the shovel afterwards), quick and nimble, pro-grade build, starts easily and runs smooth. The remote chute is the best in the industry on single stage machines - was going to buy the "red 621" equivalent - glad I didn't...this is better! And cheaper!

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 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.
