Expected disappointment
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I got the 821 to replace a CCR2000 that lasted 24 years, and I knew this 821 was going to be under performing the old one. The 821 is underpowered and heavy (4 vs 2 cycle) and not very mobile, you can't tilt the blower, or run it on an incline to clear the curb( its always twisting down). It doesn't throw the snow very far either, and after one short snow season, the scraper already needs to be replaced. One the plus side, I don't smell like burnt oil, nor am I laying down a smoke screen.
    The little blower that could
    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Love this little blower! Definitely glad I have this for those under 6" storms. Can grab it with no ramps from the pickup and it always starts right up.

    21 hours straight in wet, heavy snow (1-5ft)
    Been using the 721 and 821 for 3 years now commercially. We got hit with 60cm of snow here in the GTA, and crews couldn't get out to clear. This blower saw 21 hours of continuous usage through a minimum of 1ft, average of 1.5 and peak of 5ft of snow, and it ate through it all like a champ with no complaints. Always starts first pull with near zero effort. One machine has a dirty carb (user issue) and it still starts first pull and throws with near full power while surging, and operated under the same conditions for the same period of time. Overall use on this storm was worth about 4-5 tanks of fuel for 2 blowers on one crew. It throws the snow 20+ feet without issue, the chute is very easy to control and never ices up no matter conditions. Very lightweight and can easily be lifted into a trailer, platform rack or truck bed. Best single stage around.
      [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Have owned now for 2 yrs. 2022 just got done clearing 20 in of buffalo NY snow .This blower never stalled once with snow load even at end of driveway with 30 in of snow from plows ! This is a great snow thrower !!! The shoot control was well worth the price . So easy to control were you put snow on the fly ! Toro has hit a home run again with this design . I have owned Toro single stage snow blowers for more than 15 yrs and they only keep getting better !!! My neighbors are amazed at the way they throw snow and clear down to driveway .Makes easy of difficult work . I always recommend these products to friends and family . Do yourself a favor and get yourself one and you wont be sorry .

        This thing is a tiny beast!
        [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Downsized from a larger 2 stage due to a lack of space in the garage. The difference in the footprint is significant. We finally got a decent amount of snow (about 5”) and this thing literally rips through it like it’s not there. It’s so easy to start, you barely pull the cable and it immediately fires up. It also does a great job of getting down to the concrete and ever cleaning up compacted snow from being driven on.

          Home Depot fails with honoring promotions
          There was a $50 promotional credit, if Home Depot credit card was applied for. Home Depot has not honored that for me. As for the Toro snow blower, we haven't had any snow yet.

          Snow blower
          Much smaller than I expected for the price of it but it’s very powerful and so far (I’ve only used it twice) it’s done the job nicely.
