About This Product

Winter's biggest snowfalls are no match for the self-propelled Power Max 824 OE Snow Blower. With a 252cc Toro Premium 4-cycle OHV engine leading the charge, you'll muscle through the toughest snow and ice Mother Nature has to offer. And you'll be back inside for dinner before your neighbors, too, thanks to a 24 in. wide clearing width and 20 in. intake height that make quick work of even the deepest snow. The innovative Quick Stick control allows you to change the steel chute direction and chute deflector with a single, smooth motion. Convenient one-hand operation levers allow single-handed use, freeing the other hand to change speeds or the chute control without stopping. The exclusive Anti-Clogging System monitors snow intake to reduce clogging and maximize clearing efficiency. The blower is also equipped with hardened gears in your auger gearbox - there are no shear pins to replace. Instead, if the auger hits hard material, the engine will purposely stall to prevent damage. Ideal for concrete, asphalt and gravel surfaces. And with Toro's 3-year limited warranty, you can rest easy knowing that you're prepared for anything winter has in store. Count on it.

        Q:Is the electric start cord included? I don't see it in the one I just received. I would hope it is for the price I paid.

        Answer This Question

        A:  Hi, Rick! Thanks for your question. No, an extension cord is not included with this unit #37798. To use the electric starter, connect a power cord to the plug-in first and then to a power outlet. Use only a UL-listed, 16-gauge extension cord recommended for outdoor use that is not longer than 50 ft (15 m). You can view more information on page 14 of the manual at: https://www.toro.com/getpub/217349. Thanks!

          Powerful, in stock, minor QC issues. Cool joystick
          My Ariens 28 croaked last year. Went to buy a new one end of January and the choices were Cub or Toro. I liked the joystick idea so took it home. Easily powered through 16-18" of accumulation. Auger lock doesn't work properly, auger also squeaks. Did some research, these are common and easy to fix QC issus. It needs to get to work so cant take it for warranty service right now. Overall, good price and works well but frustrating that the auger lock is not working day 1.

            Engine cratered in 30 mins
            Assembly was easy. Add oil, gas, assemble, and this thing was ready to roll. The shoot adjustment joystick is pretty cool, but has a ton of plastic components that will rattle apart and break over time. After 30 minutes of operation, I heard a bang and then the auger wouldn't stop turning even when the lever was disengaged. Upon inspection, I found the drive belt had grabbed the retaining bracket and bent it in on the belt system. Shredded metal and belt everywhere. Just filed for a refund.

              You’ll have Time to build a Snowman
              [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] When I was a child I cut grass around the neighborhood with my toro lawnmower and saved up enough money to by an 8hp Toro snowblower. This toro was perfect for all amounts of snow , easy to handle , controls so comfortable even for a 10 year old ….Well living in Buffalo NY we get it all 3” to 84” if you could imagine it’s a winter wonderland now that I’ve got my new Toro ! At 70 years old nothing has changed I can finally enjoy the snow . Tried and test it’s perfect for all ages take it from a guy in Buffalo NY so have fun in the snow I do !!!!

              Disappointing snow blower purchase
              I just purchased the Toro Power Max 824 OE 24-inch 252cc snow blower for my son as an early Christmas present. He just purchased his first house so I thought this would be a nice gift for him. He just received his first snow fall and the machine broke down after the very first start. The drive belt was not on properly and when it started the belt grabbed the small metal belt retaining bracket and bent the metal part. He shut the blower down immediately. The belt was chewed up and the bracket was bent and no longer usable. I have been in manufacturing going on 40 years. Staffing has been an issue for years but this is just plain and simple a lack of quality control. I purchased this model as it was made in the USA and the other models were made in Mexico. First mistake. Also no motor oil included with this blower. In closing Toro, if you are not embarrassed by this review you should be. No pride in this assembly ! Very disappointed with this purchase and I need to know where I can get a replacement retaining bracket for this machine.

                Great machine!
                [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I finally bit the bullet and bought a brand new snowblower. I did quite a bit of research and comparison of different brands of snowblowers, so I didn't know which one that I would pick. I went with this Toro and I couldn't be happier! It starts great, easy to use, runs awesome, and the joystick chute for the snow is slick to use. I highly recommend this Toro!

                So far so good
                Just picked this up and used it on the leftover snow left on my driveway. It was roughly 18 inches of snow from last month the snow storm plus this last snow storm from a week ago. So it was a very good test to see how well it would work. It performed very well. Chewed through the tough, partial ice patched snow pack. It chewed it up, threw it 20 away without an issue. Well built. What you typically expect from Toro. It's expensive, but you get what you pay for these days.

                  Toro 824 Power Max Powerful Toro Quality
                  [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I had owned a Toro 722 snow blower for about 18 years. The unit lasted because I serviced it each season as I do with all my power equipment. I decided to donate the old Toro to my son who just purchased a home. I researched many snow blowers and read owner reviews. It was a no brainer, the Power Max 824 was by far the best choice with the best features. I had the opportunity to give it a good workout this weekend, we were blessed with 16” of snow in Middletown NJ. This 824 Power Max plowed through the snow with ease throwing snow more than 30 feet alongside my 80 foot driveway. This machine never bogged down in this heavy snow. The operation of the shoot with the joy handle was a real plus, as was the electric start. Nice Toro quality!!
