Why can't I use a combined extension cord of 150 feet with this snow blower?

I noticed one of the comments in the Q&A that said you can't.

Power Curve 18 in. Electric Snow Blower is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 568.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed I bought this in September 2015 and the first Winter season I had to send it back to HomeDepot to receive a new one. This is the second Winter with it and fortunately I am on a 4 year warranty program because I am having to send it to be fixed. HomeDepot was most gracious to arrange to come pick up the snow thrower to bring it to the service company. Searching on the internet to help problem solve what could be the issue this second time, it appears (and I found that I am not alone with this issue) that one of the belts, the very small one of the two that has ridges on it, would be stripped. An improved design for the double belt system would be to have the larger size belt with the ridges or teeth not the very small size belt with the ridges. Over a very short period of time and usage the smaller belt wears out from becoming stripped. Sigh! Too bad I feel disappointed because it appeared to be a very practical unit.

Would not start at the beginning of this season- Toro's local service dealer has had it for 5 weeks without fixing or repairing it. Today's large snowstorm (Feb 9th 2017) will result in much shoveling _Thank you so much-Toro & Home Depot!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Definitely recommend this model. Overall easily handled by a retiree. Lives up to its description - definitely throws snow 30 feet, easy to move around and pick up. I use it for my (short) driveway, walkway and clearing snow off the deck. It's made a big difference for me, compared to shovelling in past years. To date I've used it after 2 snowfalls; the first time the snow was quite heavy (wet) and I wondered it if would be too much for the Toro, but it was fine. The 2nd time the snow was lighter though deeper (higher than the top of the blades); I needed to let the snow blower ride up on the snow and then take a second pass to clear the area. Overall, the ease of use and the price makes it a good choice for me.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Handy in a storm I prefer electric appliances because they are always ready to go, need no maintenance and pollute less. In the recent storm I was up and running while our neighbor's gas powered blower was out of service. The Toro handles moderate size storms with ease. I can't tell you the exact break point but it cuts through 6-10 inches with ease. When the snow gets near the top end of the range you may have to hit the bank twice to clear the snow. In this service your biceps will be tired after plowing and uphill is definitely more work (but far better than shoveling). When the banks get much higher you will have to use a shovel to knock them down and then the Toro will throw them out of the way.

All i had to do to assemble was move the handle upright and tighten the knobs. Plug it in and ready to go. This unit replaced one from 8 years ago. The first unit needed bearings but i needed a working one now. Toro has made some nice improvement on the new one. A little easier to use. This is perfect for blowing off my 1000 Sq Ft deck. Once I had 18" of snow on the deck and it took some work but did the job nicely. Used with 2"-6" of snow it works GREAT! Throws the snow 20 Ft without a problem. I have since put the bearings in the first unit & will keep it as a back up for when the new unit needs bearings in 8-10 years from now. I could not live in snow country without this unit for my deck.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Toro Power Curve 1800 The Toro 38381 Power Curve 1800 has been a good purchase. If you have a very long area to cover, then the issue of a power cord may be a problem. Even in just my average driveway, the cord seems to always be in the way. The unit itself has been great. It can move the snow very well. I'm not a big fan of the safety button. I understand why it's there, but it's a pain the butt to have to push it in every time you want to start the unit. I wish there was a way to push in the safety button and have it stay pushed in. I end up pushing it in and then pulling back the handle about 20 or 30 times each time I clear the driveway. That's my only concern with the Toro Power Curve 1800. I would still purchase the unit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT PURCHASE Finally used it first time with 30" snow that was not too heavy but not light either. Very easy to start and stop turning it off and on and maneuvering. Even though snow was deep, and at times I did shovel, it went right through it and I was amazed. Next time I won't even shovel but I was learning how to use it. Great purchase for a single woman like me, 62. I did buy the right power cord, 100 ft flexible in the cold cord, which was easy to use and I highly recommend. I used it in my driveway. This was recommended to me as I did not want to fuss in winter with gas/oil.
