Turn a major snowfall into a minor inconvenience with one of our toughest, most rugged snow blowers - the Power Max 1028 HD OXE two-stage snow blower. A breakthrough in snow blowing technology, the Power Max Anti-Clogging System (ACS) reroutes excess snow to prevent clogging and maximizes impeller speed and velocity. The Quick Stick control allows you to quickly and easily change chute direction and chute deflection with one simple, integrated control. It comes equipped with Power Steering which allows you to turn on a dime and effortless maneuverability with the easy pull of the handle mounted triggers. The 16 in. diameter tires dig through deep snow and the heavy duty cast iron skids give you increased wear life. The Toro premium 302 cc OHV 4-Cycle engine provides unmatched governor response for more power faster. It is equipped with electric start and with convenient features like a fuel shut-off valve and extended oil drain. The commercial-grade Auger Gear case transfers power to the extra large 14 in. diameter serrated augers designed to withstand extreme stress, eliminating the need for troublesome shear pins. The interlock system allows one-handed operation freeing the other hand to change speeds or the chute control without stopping. It has a 3 year limited warranty, if anything goes wrong in the first three years, under normal use and maintenance, Toro will fix it free. The chute, deflector, and ACS are guaranteed for life. Some assembly is required by the customer.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TORRRRO! I start it up and the snow leaps off my driveway! For the past 3 years this really takes the chore out of snow removal... in fact, even though all my neighbors have snow blowers - the day we got 70cm plus the snowplow... well let's just say they were thankful there was a Toro to bail them out when theirs just couldn't do the job. Seriously... if you're contemplating the price, you will make it up in Tim Horton gift cards from your neighbors! (providing you're not a Toro snob) So buy in confidence, and spread the love to your less fortunate snowed-in neighbors! December 5, 2013
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by First impression of Toro HD 1028 Snow Blower Opened the box and noticed 2 spots of oil on the cardboard, one was from gear case, other under the drive. gear case dripping oil! The frame is crooked, will not sit straight on level ground, will have to see if it can be adjusted. Flimsy plastic chute assembly hard to set discharge angle and height accurately when blowing snow. For the cost of this machine would suggest to look at other brands in similar price range better made. December 15, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Product has lots of power. Have to get use to the quick stick. Went through heavy wet snow with ease. November 28, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy to use Have had it only a week, but this winter of 2014 required this machine, and have already used it 3 or 4 hours. We have long gravel drive that I cannot push the big drifts out any further - solution was this HD 1028 OXE snow thrower to power thru the deep drifts and blow it over the piles of snow.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Love the way it starts and handles It has started on one or two pulls. My wife hurt her shoulder and hand about two years ago and has no problems with pulling it to start. We both love the way it handles. The chute rotation is great. It plows right through those big drifts at the end of the sidewalk. I would buy another one when this one wears out but that will be a long time. February 22, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great snow blower This is a great snow blower. All of the features this machine incorporates add up to a powerful, flexible and effective way to clear snow quickly - and everything works the way it's supposed to. Compared to shoveling, the Toro 1028 is a breeze to use and best of all, for me anyway, it will leave your back intact once the job is done. February 13, 2014
