What is the shipping size of the carton?

Don't know if I can get box into the back of my Mercury Mountaineer if I have this sent to the store because I don't look forward to picking it up and getting it from where my 400+ ft. driveway meets the road where it would be dropped off.

Toro 926 OXE at altitude

Are there any altitude restrictions, or adjustments necessary, in order to use the Toro 926 OXE snowthrower at around 8000 feet?
Asked by: Anonymous
The manual choke can be used to adjust the amount of fuel to air ratio. But in your case, since the air is "thinner", you would want a qualified small engine repair specialist to tune your carburetor on the lean side. You would be running too rich otherwise, and wasting fuel and carbonizing the engine.

Power Max HD 926 OXE 26 in. Two-Stage Electric Start Gas Snow Blower-DISCONTINUED is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 38.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great features but doesnt run well I have always depended on Toro products and have had many over the years. This blower has not run well since the day I started it for the first winter. In the 3 years Ive had it there seems to be a lack of power under load. It now spits sputters, slows down and stalls. i have tried all the usual suspects , gas, gas shutoff, filter, changed the plug, checked the belts etc etc

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great machine, good value This is my first snow thrower, and after recently receiving the largest snowfall in Minnesota in two years, I finally had a chance to use it. I was out of town when the storm hit and returned late at night to find 12 inches of wet, heavy snow on my driveway. To top it off, the plow had left over two feet of compacted ice at the end of the driveway. This was a good opportunity to put the machine to the test. Starting -- The temp was about 10F. I turned on the choke, hit the primer button three times, pulled the starter cord and it fired right up. Very nice. The machine comes with an electric starter, but I was too tired to search for an extension cord. Power -- My driveway has a steep incline. The machine had more than enough power to propel itself up the hill and throw snow a long distance. The spec says something like 50 ft, sounds about right. I was impressed. Steering -- The machine features two "clutches" on each handle to disengage a wheel from the power-train for steering. This was one of the features that attracted me to the Toro versus other brands. It took a bit of getting used to, but the ability to turn the machine on a dime in both directions with almost no effort was big enough reward to figure it out. Plastic parts -- This was one of the "drawbacks" of the Toro that caused me hesitation when choosing a snow thrower. Most folks seem to think that all metal is necessary. But watching the Toro demo on their website, where they put the machine in extreme whether conditions and then bang on the plastic parts with hammers, convinced me to go for it. I think it's fine. The stuff at the end of the driveway was compacted ice -- 2ft of it. I could hear the ice slamming and slapping the plastic but noticed no problems. Tires -- My driveway is a steep uphill clime and long -- nearly 200 ft. Think of the steepest driveway you've seen and imagine one a little less steep, that's probably mine. Recently I had picked up some chains for the tires but not yet put them on. I was tired and cold when I got home and decided to give it a shot without the chains. No problems. The tires didn't slip once. End-of-the-driveway debris -- It would've taken me two hours with a scoop shovel and ice scraper to bust up and move the end-of-the-driveway mess from the plow. Instead, I put the machine in low speed and its auger chewed through the pile. I had to exert some upward force on the handles to keep it from just going over the top. But once the machine dug in, there wasn't much for me to do but wait. Chute control -- I was skeptical of the "Quickstick" control. I thought a crank was all that's needed. But being able to turn the chute fast with the lever is very handy, especially since the machine can turn so quickly with the clutch levers. Light -- As I said, I returned home late and it was dark. The light on the Toro is plenty bright and off to the side on one of the handlebars. It casts a huge beam and wasn't much obstructed by the blower's motor or chute. Overall I would definitely recommend the Toro 926 OXE. Although relatively expensive, I think it's still a good value.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from VeteranWinterSurvivor If you can catch this item on sale (like I did in Canada, and can get someone to honor the 10% price match guarantee), then you cannot go wrong with the Toro Power Max HD 926 OXE. The Good: + This Snowblower does not use or require sheer pins, for the auger / shaft. + The two key Toro designs and patents, joystick like chute control, and the ACS really set this unit apart from the competition. + It is easy to perform oil changes, because the drain plug / shaft is located and designed in an easy to use location. + Winterized outdoor Toro engine, is easy to start (I leave my unit in my outdoor Tool Shed), and designed for outdoor winter storage. I use a 100% synthetic 0W30 engine oil. + Performs extremely well under heavy load, more than capable of throwing snow out of your way and far enough in the air. 24+ inches of snow and much more are no match for the 926. The Bad - If you purchase this blower from Home Depot, you will wait a minimum of 16+ days from the time you order it and the time you can expect to ACTUALLY have it home. Mine took 19 days. There is no way you can get this from a Home Depot in 10 days (online says 10-16 days). - Home Depot online would not honor the 10% price match guarantee (in Canada, they would not) from a brick and mortar Toro Authorized retailer. - Requires assembly (most Toro Retailers or snow blowers in stock come pre-assembled, nothing online come pre assembled for shipping purposes.)... chute, controls, and drive shaft assembly. Not terribly difficult, but then again, not turn key either.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Crescent snowblower helper We received over 2 feet of snow today, wasn't worry because of my new Toro snowblower. Not only did I clean my driveway with no problem, I also helped my neighbors with their driveways. The machine is very easy to use, the controls permit you to have all the necessary flexibility to throw the snow any direction. With the light on, anyone can see you coming, making it very clear to see where you are going. My neighbors were amazed to see how the snowblower threw the snow almost 25 ft away while plowing through the thick snow. I am sure that there will be more Toro snowblowers in our crescent before the end of this winter season!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Probably one of the Better Overall Complete Higher End Units to get, but... I live where snowstorms and bad weather are too be expected. We don't need the army to come and save us, Montreal is a city that when we receive over 35" of snow, we deal with it (Both the City and it's people are equipped to handle it). So, I speak with a certain amount of experience when it comes to Snow, and snowblowers. The Pros: + The unit is about the best overall in terms of size, maneuverability and power to handle winters worst, and what the city plows throw up against your driveway entrance. + The ACS and the Toggle Chute Control are extremely well thought out, Toro Exclusive. + Love the Fact the engine is not built in china. + The Auger is big enough to handle and throw snow far enough, even when it's the city compacted type or wet. + Big and Deep Lugged Tires, that are not too wide and give very good traction. + The chassis is nice, heavy and solid. + Maintenance like oil changes will be a breeze, since the drain plug has a shaft that sticks out and overhangs so that you can get a pan to help drain. + And, this model has all the niceties to be expected in a snow blower costing well over $1k... Electric Start, Quiet and Winterized Engine, Can do U-Turns, Design of the Unit is Clean-Tidy-Compact and Stylish, Bright Headlight, and you know you will always have parts availability because it's a Toro. The Bad - The chassis is not 100% even compared to assembly and weld points from one side to the other (I know you are not racing on an oval track and probably won't affect the performance... but still, this thing costs over $1500), for example my bucket weld and bend on the right side is 1/4" greater than on the left side, so technically it is offset a tad. - The Unit would not hand crank, but would turn over with electric starter. I am waiting for Toro to get back to me on this issue, and see what Home Depot has to say or offer on the matter as a solution. - A better manual or understanding of what exactly should be lubricated and what shouldn't be or need to be lubricated. There are a lot of friction and contact points and there is no mention in the manual whether it needs or should be lubricated. - At regular price, it is too expensive and priced out of reach from most reasonable home budgets. It only makes sense if you can get this model priced matched at another brick and mortar store, and then get someone to listen and execute the 10% Home Depot Price Match guarantee. Conclusion... The Toro Power Max HD926 is a solid machine, and with the right common sense maintenance should perform well over it's lifespan. It possesses a lot of technological advances over most high end Snow blowers, and has a lot of the features found that are not common in all machines. Another peace of mind is the fact that at least with Toro, you can rest assured that should you need a nut, washer, or bolt etc, you will be able to get it. Value and performance, will be determined on at what purchase price you can get the machine for. Personally, I don't think it makes good value if you end up paying retail prices. If that were the case, then I believe you would be better served getting something based on Consumer Reports Snow Blowers tests. I managed to find this model at $260 less than what Home Depot was retailing the machine for. Hence, I did find a Home Depot Store Manager that wanted to make the sale, and offered to match the price, plus I saved on the 10% price match guarantee (I saved an additional $160 off the competitors price. So at the end of the day, the machine cost me $320 less plus the additional savings of paying less sales taxes. For me, that was the no brainer decision to pick this machine over everything else.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Strong & Quality Snowblower This is the first snowblower I've ever purchased. So, I can't really compare it to anything else. The power steering makes using this thing very easy. Turning is no problem at all with the clutches at your fingertips. It went through snow very easily. Only on one occasion did it clog. It always started on the first pull or when I would use the electric start, it fired right up. I've only used it for one winter (2012-2013) but I expect many many more years of reliable snow removal from this Toro.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best snowblower ever I live in Western Michigan about 8 miles from Lake Michigan. The first week of January 2014 we had one of the worst winter storms in about 20years. We were snowed in for 3 days, the drive had 3' drifts in it everyday. I forgot to say that I just bought this snowblower, and I told the dealer I had a big drive, and he told me there would be no problem. I put it to work and it cut the drift like melted butter. This is by far the best snowblower I ever owned, it's a work horse.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mean machine! I bought this unit to replace my 10+ year old John Deere and love this snow blower. It has plenty of power runs on first pull. It does have electric start but not needed. Pulls very easy. The first use I got of this was the blizzard of 2013 in Iowa. I had about 6' high pile of snow from the city plow in the parking of my driveway and the rest was drifted at least 3' thick all wet very heavy snow. This blower moved all of it with no effort. My old Deere would have never stood a chance against this snow fall. I love my Toro and it was recommended to me by a close friend who is the manager of a John Deere dealership and said Toro is a better built heavy duty unit. He even sent me to a competitor to get it just because he knew the quality of Toro snow blowers. I would recommend this Snow blower to any one looking for a high quality well built product. It is commercial grade quality and it feels like it when you use it.
