Questions & Answers

Never had a snow blower. Do you have to mix anything with gas
Asked by: Patti
No you do not have to mix any oil with the gasoline for this unit to run. I would suggest that when you buy gasoline, purchase some fuel stabilizer which will prevent the gasoline from breaking down for up to 2 years.

Does this model come with electric start for the $359 price?
Asked by: JayTee
No, the 518 ZR is recoil start and the 518 ZE is recoil AND 120V electric start. It starts with two tugs when the choke is on and the engine is primed. No need for the electric starter in my opinion. Maybe in sub zero temps, but no worries even at 15F with fresh fuel.

Would this work on our unpaved driveway in the mountains? Or will loose dirt and gravel kick up inside and cause damage?
Asked by: COMountainMom
Loose dirt and gravel can kick up, which will cause wear and tear on the rubber impeller (single-stage) or auger and fan (two-stage). It can also be dangerous, as the unit will create projectiles out of gravel rock.

Is this snow blower self propelled?

Asked by: WillieBuyit
It is not self propelled by the wheels but the design of the single stage snow thrower rubber flap allows you to slightly lift up on handle and it will pull itself forward.

Each plow truck carried one of these blowers for snows under 10". I love how light weight and compact this toro model is. I would highly recommend.

It's small enough to wrestle around in tight spaces and powerful enough to really move some material. Make sure you know what's under the snow (ice chunks, dog toys) because whatever it grabs flies out at a high rate of speed. Good, easy starting machine.

Since the wheels are smaller it can bounce around and get stuck on ice lumps a bit, but it is pretty lightweight so I can move it around easily. I am a maturing female and I didn't want a big machine. It needed it to be easy to operate. I have a three car driveway, so it is a little harder to get the snow to blow all the way over to the side from the middle of 32' wide space. Other than that it throws snow a good 9'. I haven't tried it in wet snow yet.

The second one, a replacement, had the same problem. however it also seemed to be covered with oil making me wonder if this was a new machine at all. I've always had good luck with Toros and perhaps this was just a defective batch that suffered from Manufacturing defects defects. Rather than risk a third problem, I bought another brand.
