Ethanol and MTBE are not the same. Gasoline with 15% ethanol (E15) by volume is not approved for use. Never use gasoline that contains more than 10% ethanol by volume, such as E15 (contains 15% ethanol), E20 (contains 20% ethanol), or E85 (contains 85% ethanol). Using unapproved gasoline may cause performance problems and/or engine damage which may not be covered under warranty. • Do not use gasoline containing methanol. • Do not store fuel either in the fuel tank or fuel containers over the winter unless a fuel stabilizer is used. Note: For best results, purchase only the quantity of gasoline that you expect to use in 30 days. Otherwise, you may add fuel stabilizer to newly purchased gasoline to keep it fresh for up to 6 months.

Answer: 
It is my understanding that the Electric can always be started via the Recoil and that while you can use the Electric to start the blower routinely it can be used in only the most brutal cold conditions to assist with starting. Am I correct? I understand that the Toro SB employs a certain "explosive" action that makes it very easy to use the recoil only method.

Answer: 
The difference between the two is 721E comes with an electric starter, and 721R doesn't. If you don't mind pulling to start then save some money and just get the 721R. Personally I like the electric starter, the only draw back is you have to plug it in to use the starter.

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 392 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This Snowblower works above it's rated snow depth We were just dumped on with 13" of snow overnight. The driveway had drifted to 20" and the street was closer to 30". This snowblower was rated by Consumer Reports at 10". I had no problem clearing the driveway and plowing through the snow in the street so I could get out to where the snow plow stopped. My only problem the first time that I used it was none of my extension cords allowed the electric starter to work. Fortunately the snowblower started on the first pull with my non dominant arm. Since then I purchased the Toro power cord and everything works great. February 23, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by TORO POWER CLEAR 721E 21" OK WHEN IT WORKS I researched this product and thought by buying a brand name and paying more I'd be making a better decision. Approx $579+tax+ expenses of renting a Home Depot truck. Exhausting and expensive experience. The product started up ok on first use but would not shut off when turning key to off position. I remedied by jiggling choke until engine turned off. I have no way of transporting this unit for repair or return so I've lived with it. Winter of 2015-16 was mild but product did work ok other than the turning off issue. Fast forward first light snow of 2016 and unit will not start despite proper prep. Disappointed? Beyond that. Did I mention I'm a 65 single lady with heart & other disabilities living on social security? January 20, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Toro snowblower review I used the snowblower for about 1 hour and it worked great. Then it stopped and I couldn't get it to start again. I contacted Toro and they gave me a few places that I could take it in under warranty. I did and they told me it had a bent camshaft and "Something Extra" in the engine. They told me that they didn't know how it even ran for an hour with all that was wrong. But they fixed it under warranty and I have used it once since I brought it home (it hasn't snowed since) and it worked great. Toro and the repair company were good to work with. But I was without my machine for 2 weeks and of course, that's when it snowed and I had to shovel. January 12, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Happy I Bought It! Purchased this snow blower in January in advance of any snowfall. I've used it 4 times so far and it does a great job. So glad I didn't go with a bigger/2-stage blower. This cleans well down to the pavement, throws the snow 10-15 feet, and although not technically "self-propelled", the way it works makes it essentially an auto-propelled unit. In fact, it has so much pull, I have to make sure I'm cautious going down the gradual incline of my driveway. I have used the electric start feature and have also used the hand-pull start, and both work well. The adjustable snow throwing chute is great and very easy to turn with one hand while the blower is running. Very happy with this blower - let it snow! February 16, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Snow Thrower, not blower Ordered 721E for home delivery and was delivered in November. Assembly takes some familiarity using hand tools. Machine starts easiy with pull starter but also has electric assist. I used it in 6" dry snow and worked well. The reason I bought it was single stage throwers seem less likely to clog with ice than 2 stage when clearing wet snow and I was pleased it did that well including the end of the driveway. It does take some effort to push through 4" snow but clears right to ground.. It vibrates in use and some fasteners loosened and were lost but Toro is sending me. I suggest adding nylock nuts to reinforce the handle knobs and add lock washers under the cover screws. February 8, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by It Works Well Purchased this as a replacement to my dear departed 15 year old Toro 16" snow blower. Boy am I lucky I did! We had 32" of snow here in the DC area about two weeks later. The Toro did a great job (had to do it several times during the storm due to depth mind you). But the power this Toro has is incredible. Far superior to the old unit. And the benefit of the electric start was great, no pulling with this old back. Worth every dollar spent and works exactly as expected. Easy, fast start and moves the snow. What else do you want? February 23, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by I am extremely impressed I ran out on 12/28/15 to buy this in the middle of a wet heavy sleeting snow storm north of Milwaukee WI. I tried to shovel and after one 10 foot run knew it wasn't going to happen. I bought this and was amazed at how well it handled the heavy snow. Throws it a respectable distance too for heavy stuff. My brother in law who has a snow plow business had recommended it. I was skeptical at first as I was used to the much bigger machines. Came out next morning to about 3 more inches of heavy stuff and a foot of the sludge at the bottom of the driveway. Couldn't believe it but it got rid of that stuff too! It is light and could definitely be handled by women or the elderly December 29, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Superb results!! After "snowmageddon" dropped about 30 inches of snow on us in northern Virginia, this snowblower was a back-saver. While it can't tackle 2 or 3 feet of snow, we were able to knock down the snow in our large driveway down to about a foot or so high, and then the snowblower had an easy time with it. It cut through about 12 inches of snow with ease, chucking it about 30 feet away. Easy to start and operate. Noisy and vibration, but not unreasonable. Hey, it's an engine....its to be expected. Key was that there were no jams or stalls, it started easily, and nothing froze up. Even though it has electric start, I often just used the pull start, never pulling more than twice to start it. Anyway.....enough said. Well worth the purchase. January 25, 2016
