Power Clear 518 ZE 18 in. Single-Stage Gas Snow Blower is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 646.

I live in West Michigan where we receive a great deal of lake effect snow from Lake Michigan. I clear a large driveway (30' x 80') and move the snow to the side of the driveway. I also clear a large cement patio. The snow blower has started with one or two pulls and runs well. I have not had the need to use the electric start. This has started easily. This replaced a Toro I had from the 80's. The old machine was a two-cycle engine. The 4 cycle engine is a nice change. I was able to move wet, heavy snow as well as light powder snow. The snow easily reaches beyond the sides of the driveway from the center so I do not have to clear the same snow a second time.

BUYER BEWARE: I AM NOT SURE HOW THIS PRODUCT WILL PERFORM YET, AS WE ARE TOO EARLY FOR SNOW. I BOUGHT THIS ON OCT 31 BECAUSE TORO ADDED 1 YEAR TO THEIR WARRANTY FOR SNOW THROWERS BOUGHT BY THAT DATE. I NEVER INTENTIONALLY BUY MECHANICAL PRODUCTS THAT HAVE BEEN ON THE SHELF FOR A LONG PERIOD OF TIME. UNFORTUNATELY, IT WAS IMPOSSIBLE TO IDENTIFY THE MANUFACTURED MONTH AND YEAR UNTIL REMOVING THE ITEM FROM THE BOX AT HOME. THE SERIAL NUMBER WAS ASSOCIATED WITH A 2017 MODEL YEAR BUT ONCE THE BOX WAS OPENED THE SNOWBLOWER SHOWS A MANUFACTURE DATE OF AUGUST 2016. SO THE PRODUCT IS LEFTOVER FROM WHAT DID NOT SELL IN THE FALL / WINTER OF 2016/17. I CAN NOT RECOMMEND BUYING ANY NEW MECHANICAL PRODUCT SITTING ON A SHELF SOMEWHERE FOR THAT LENGTH OF TIME. THE SNOWBLOWER WAS SIMPLE TO PUT TOGETHER AND IS LIGHT ENOUGH FOR THE AVERAGE PERSON TO MOVE AROUND WITH EASE. I WILL REVISIT THIS REVIEW ONCE I DETERMINE HOW THE PRODUCT PERFORMS.

Assembly was as easy as brewing a cup of coffee, the 518ZE cleared (8inch deep) snow right to the pavement and more importantly started right up at an air temp of -7 Fahrenheit ,didn't need to use the electric start either. Easily delivered the blown snow right where I wanted, and the units light weight made handling no problemo. The exterior of the 518ze was easily cleaned off after the job was completed.Brand new machine, and it gets the work done as expected, oh did I mention it was easy on gas too!

THe 2" seems to make a difference. Putting it togther was not as easy as some have said. The pictures are not so clear as they are taken from different angles . You do need a tool to tighten the locking nuts. We were thrilled when it started on the first pull. The instructions on how to use it were easy for my husband but not for me. It did do a great job and watching him use it once it was started ( don;t know about chokes). We paid arond $200 less for this one than our old one which was a nice surprise. It is very well built and cleaned our deck with around 8" of snow in a short time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Snow Blower I picked up the last one at Home Depot the day before a 30" storm. I added gas and oil, and it started up on the 2nd pull. I cleared 12" twice and 6" once, and this little machine powered through the white stuff without a problem. It cleaned down to the pavement. It's light and maneuverable. I was a little fearful that it wouldn't be powerful enough to clear 12"+ inches at a time, but I found that if cleared 75% of a full swath, it had no difficulty. I'm very satisfied with this machine. I purchase the electric start version because that's the only model Home Depot had, but based on how easy it starts, I don't think I'll ever need to use it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for the dry snow we get in Central Oregon. Got the Blower just before our first big storm... Perfect for the dry snow we get in Central Oregon. Got the Blower just before our first big storm - about 12" came down in 24 hours or so. I have a standard size driveway and some sidewalk out front. I try to hit the snow while it's still about 4-5" deep and fresh. The Toro did fantastic! Even did well (but a little slower) when I decided to do the neighbor's driveway after the snow level was over the top of the intake area on the blower. There's no reason to buy a bigger, more expensive machine, unless you just want to. Or if your snow is typically wet and heavy - not sure how this would do then.
