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.

I haven't used it yet. No Snow, this is early October 2021. But if it works a great as my last Toro, I will be happy. I did take it out of the box and started it up and everything seemed fine. Lets wait for the snow.

      leak oil。
      This product is very good. When I left it in the garage after using it, I found it would leak oil. I just bought it a few days ago.

        Love this little guy. I’ve used it for snow up to 6-7 inches with no problem. Struggles when you get to the harder piles from the plows. I rated it a little lower because the cap that goes over the spark plug does not stay in. I needed to push in a stick so it stays in place so I can use the snowblower. I will contact Toro after the winter.

        Something To Consider When Purchasing This Model
        I'm a bit disappointed, as this was my first purchase of a Toro product. I understood that I'd have to adjust the direction of the snow & where I wanted it. While I was moving the aim for the direction of the snow, it stalled a few time's (hand didn't leave the bar for keeping it running). It did start up (immediately) again without a issue. For what I paid, I thought it was a bit much, after those little "hiccups" that I had.

        Needs better inspection process during manufacturing process.
        I had to return the first power clear 518 ze snowblower as it leaked oil and gasoline after initially starting it up after assembling. I took pictures of the oil/gas that leaked upon the initial start up. I assembled the second power clear 518 ze the exact same way that I assembled the first one I bought. Started it up and let it run like the first one and checked for leaks. There were none, thankfully. I do not want to give this a positive review yet, as I would like to see if any issues arise after using this snowblower a few times.

        I could not be more pleased with my new Toro snowblower. It is well built and designed. I opted for the manual start model and it's true, it starts on the first or second pull every time. The 99cc engine doesn't even work up a sweat through the heaviest snow and pulls its weight like much larger units. It's my third Toro unit over the years and the quality of this unit speaks for its self. It's compact size is a real advantage for easy storage in my garage. Thanks

        Toro Does Stand Tall
        I have not used it in snow due to buying the snowblower in early spring and no snow is available. The guaranteed to start by the second pull is awesome and works every time. Maintenance on the 4-cyl engine is very easy and like using synthetic oil too. My first Toro Snowblower lasted me well over 12 years. Hopefully this one will last longer and believe it will too. Having the two year warranty is a plus and doubt will need it too.
