Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JMJM14 Now that I have it...there will be no snow
Snowblower arrived via UPS in damaged shape. The handle was bent down by the attachment to the unit. I had to make a decision on whether to bend it back and jam it together or deal with the hassle of returning it. I choose to bend it back. It worked but machine is a bit off line. I think it will work fine, but I do not recommend getting it delivered. Pick it up at store. No snow yet, but once I filled it with Gas and Oil (Oil comes with it), it started up no problem. Quality is a concern as it feels a bit cheaply made and plasticy .

Sturdy construction. Protected fro rust. Powerful four stroke overhead valve engine. Right size for fast snow removal. Maneuvers like a lawn mower. Discharge chute only requires mounting, but easy to do.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LuckyLeno New Toro = No Snow :(
Set up was very easy. Have had one wet snow and my new baby was quick to start and clear me a path. Since then floating in the high 40's here in the Chicagoland area........just b/c I bought a new snow blower.
I expect this to last 15 years or more so I will get my chances.

32" in 36 hour period in Northern VA this year. Did several driveways in my neighborhood in addition to 200 yds of sidewalk with no problem. My neighbor purchased a big kludgy auger blower which seemed cumbersome and difficult to maneuver. I was clearly driving the Ferrari while he was driving the sedan.

I feel like this was money wasted.I made the mistake of buying this in the summer so by the time the first snow fell it was too late to get my money back. It snowed about 4 inches of wet snow which kept getting clogged causing my wife to stop every ten feet or so to clean the wet snow out. The next 3 times I used this snow blower the snow was between 4 to 8 inches and each time this machine struggled. I'm through, we give up on this snow blower. I'm giving it away and next winter we are buying a real snow blower that can handle Chicago winters.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Wesismore Good blower but seriously lacks traction
This snow blower would be great if my house was not on a hill. However, the wheels are way too small and I have had this slide down my hill numerous times and it is a bear to push up despite the supposed front wheel drive. I looked into buying chains for the wheels but none are made for this size. If you have any sort of uphill or downhill blowing to do, make sure you buy a blower that has much bigger wheels that actually will grip the ground.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 12772 Very good blower and easy to use.
Blower was very easy to put together. It starts easily and has great power. I wanted the more expensive Toro blower with the chute directional control on the handle thinking that bending down each time to redirect snow throwing would be a pain but it isn't as bad as I thought it would be and not worth spending another $200. Haven't had a deep, deep snow yet but the blower moves very quickly through the 3" to 5" range so far. It appears as though it will store in a relatively small place with the handle down when the season is over. Easy for the wife to start and use as well.

I was going to purchase the smaller unit, the 518 ZR but none were in stock so I opted for the 721. No regrets. For only $150 more, I would get twice the engine size. I used it once so far on about 5 inches of snow and it worked great. Easy set up and oil fill. I love not having to mix the oil and gas and it has lots of torque. When I found myself tweeking the old snow blower every time I needed to use itsss to get it started I was done with it. Most all of the Home Depot stores in the Denver area were sold out of both units so one was ordered online and it arrived within a few days. Great decision to choose the Toro; my Toro lawn mower is still going strong since 2003 so why not stay with the proven brand.
