Customer Questions & Answers

Is this model self propelled?

Asked by: danielle
Totally self propelled, but you can push it if you like. Has power steering that works very well.

Clean out tool

I just assembled the Toro Power Max 1028, but can not find the clean out tool. Does this unit come with a clean out tool or is it purchased separately. Some pics show it mounted between the front handles. Thank you.
Asked by: BrianH
Comes with the tool attached to handle bars behind engine. Never use it. Just use hands with gloves when unit is off. Only clogs on very wet, slushy snow.

Can the light on this unit be turned off or is it always on when the snowblower is running?

Asked by: BrianH
Always on.
Answered by: BuzzyJ

The assembly seems quite involved. Will Home Depot assemble it for a charge? (And then ship it.)

Asked by: Fred
Assembly takes about an hour.

Power Max HD 1028 28 in. OHXE Two-Stage Gas Snow Blower is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 29.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the money I've havent got to try it in snow yet but i have used it a couple of times breaking up a hard snow drift in my driveway. If it only throws the snow half as far as it was throwing these half ice/half snow chunks then I'll still be impressed with its performance. I purchased online and had it delivered to my house. It was still in the box and needing the final setup completed which was a piece of cake. A ratchet and socket was more efficient than the wrenches they suggest in the instructions and the instructions were detailed and easy to understand once I took the extra second to read them vs skimming over them real quick like men typically do. My only regret is waiting to make the purchase until so late in the winter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smooth Operator I previously had a Toro 8 hp w/ Tecumseh engine from1998. Never had a problem & loved the machine. Gave it to my son and bought this. Used only a few times so far, but I like it alot. The engine is smoother and quieter. Starts immediately every time. The large fuel opening is a welcome improvement as are the speed detents and especially the power turn idea. The joystick operation is a little jerky and has a slight learning curve, but much better than my old manual adjustment Will revise if I have a problem, but I doubt that I will

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WOW! I am 5 ft tall female and the unexpected snow storm of 22" in march 2017, I could only say that this machine is a "BEAST"..it took a while to clear the driveway but i am completely grateful to this snowblower..I would have been snowbound and trapped in the house for 2 days like my neighbors if not for remarkable piece of equipment..A little expensive but u get what u pay for..PERIOD..Thank you Toro

It struggles with large mounds of freshly placed snow at my driveway by city snow plows...2-3 feet high. I have to push the unit while drive is engaged. My other Craftsman snow blower did just as well for 1/3 the cost and lasted over 20 years. I gave it to my daughter and it's still running great. I bought the Toro because of its reputation and we no longer have a Sears store nearby. I would recommend savings some money with an Arien's or somebody else and going to a 3 stage unit. Wish I had done that. I do like the ball type chute adjustment. I have used this unit for two Iowa winters and I get by with it. Don't pay extra for hand-warmers either. You won't keep you hands warm unless you are not wearing gloves! My rating is based on value for your dollar. There is less value for this unit than I had expected. I have been using snow blowers in Iowa for 50 years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yup - just what I needed! This device will throw slush! This device will throw all the snow the plow puts in the end of my driveway and does not clog! This device rocks. Good speed, chute control up at the top of the hand rails is extremely convenient. I have needed to upgrade for a few years. Glad I researched and found this top of the line device. Not cheap, but you get what you paid for!

Handwarmers, light, easy turning, etc. are all nice features. Always had good luck with Toro products. There was some damage to a tire upon delivery, but Home Depot was great to work with in getting it replaced.
