Does a great job
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I bought this to replace a previous model that I had used for the last 15 years. Unfortunately when we got hit hard with a lot of snow here my old one died on me, it is currently being repaired. I bought this new one and love it, the gas only feature and a bit wider was an upgrade. I prefer this type of snowblower with the Kevlar? paddles rather than the metal ones so many others have. First of all it allows snow to be removed right down to the surface on blacktop or concrete rather than leaving a layer to become ice later. Secondly I use it to make paths and areas for my Pug to use when he needs to go out. I didn’t want to have to replace the old one but it served me well for years and I really like the new one even better and expect that it will last until I’m too old to use it.

18" (46 cm) Power Clear® 518 ZE Snow Blower (38473
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Nice size blower perfect for our 11/2 garage. It's a bit on the noisy side w/ shoot that rattles some. The electric start feature was is what I thought to be as those on Toro lawn mowers that come furnished with a small charger, but on the snow blower you have to plug in an extension cord in order to use the electric start which a don't care for too much. Overall the pull start is OK and starts on first pull sofar.

Starts right up
Im really surprised how easy this toro starts up. Usually one pull does it. This snow machine is surprisingly works well in drifting snow.

    TOUGH, RELIABLE and POWERFUL
    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I've had one of these for a few years now. I probably push it right to it's limit, I do two or three suburban driveways and associated sidewalks. It's a great machine! Very light powder , naah, just push it with a big shovel. Any amount of heft though, I break this out. BIG storm, OH YEAH, it's TORO time! Winter 2014 it saved my bacon big time, multiple deep snows that never melted away. It got DEEP! by the end. HEAVY slush is it's weakness, but that is about it.

      My second toro electric start and I love it.
      [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] When I opened the box and did easy assembling. Fueled it and oiled it then started her right up. We had the snow briefly and didn’t get to use it yet but she is a beautiful machine.

      I love Toro product
      [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I haven't used this snow blower yet because it is only October and no snow yet. But if it works as great as my last Toro, it will be great. I am looking forward to the snow. I have taken it out of the box and started it up and everything was just fine.
