Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 388 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by It does a fine job I just bought this product today for a heavy snowfall, snow as deep as the opening of the snowblower and deeper where there are snowdrifts. Put about 3 hours heavy usage on it today and it handled the task without faltering. I was impressed at how well it handled a large volume of snow. Where the snow was deeper than the machine, I made two passes to pick up whatever spilled over the top. It is able to pick up snow right down to your driveway or sidewalk (no layer of snow that it can't reach like with some other machines). It threw the snow an adequate distance, farther than I expected and I had no issue moving snow onto my already high snowbanks. Even the heavier stuff at the end of the driveway was thrown onto the snowbank without any issue. The machine is nice and light - you can pick it up with one hand. It's easy to maneuver, for example over a deck and onto an ice rink or on a path on the side of a house. I was able to easily lift it into the cab of my truck with the rear seats flipped up, so it's easy to transport if you want to do a friend/family member's driveway. It is also not too loud which is a nice change from loud gasoline engines. It doesn't take too much room in my garage, and even the handle folds down or can be removed via two hand-knobs. My only real issue with this machine is that if you're dealing with deep snow, it is still a lot of work to push the machine through the snow as it is not self-propelled, but it definitely beats moving snow by hand any day. I like that I don't have to worry about filling it up with gasoline or oil so I can work as long as I want without interruptions, and there's no fumes to breathe in (which after several hours you will appreciate). I didn't find moving the cord around to be a huge deal. All in all, I am very happy with my purchase and look forward to the next snowfall! February 21, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by could be better It works fine when the snow is up to 6 to 7 inches high, but for a 12-inch or more accumulation, the machine gets so clumsy to operate, it has a hard time digging into the snow. January 9, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Absolutely Great This really is a great product. Mine is into it's third winter now and has not given me a single problem. I am constantly amazed how much snow it can handle considering how light it is. January 5, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by this was a repurchase The price is right and the ease of use is great.We would and have recommended this snow thrower to our friends. We initially purchased our first machine 3 years ago. The reason being that my parents had a TORO electric shovel that they used for over 10 years..and then I got it in 1989 and had used it for 19 years(with no service problems) when I purchased this one in 1997.Unfortunately, a few weeks ago someone stole it off our front porch;so the next day I went online and purchased the same machine because being seniors it is easier for us to handle than a bigger snow blower and it does exactly what we need. It is very compact and easy to use. TORO is a VERY good product. February 12, 2011
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Toro 1800 Power Curve Electric Snow Blower Received my Toro about a week ago just after a Nor Easter. It performed very well. I found it worked better than I had anticipated as I wanted it to get through snow from my front porch to the driveway which I have commercially plowed. It worked well clearing the snow that was about 18 inches deep. I just kept edging through some of the snow that was deeper than the 18 inches and it also cleared this very well. I did not try to use on the heavy ice laden stuff as I thought it might be too much to expect. It's a great machine for me as I have arthritis in my hands and I can manoeuver it without discomfort. It is also light enough for me to lift and move around. Very Pleased with it. March 6, 2011
