How do actually turn this model if there is no power steering? Please be as specific as you can. Thank you.
Asked by: Mandy
You turn this heavy machine by brute force. It will wear you out if you have to make many turns. Worse, only one wheel is a drive wheel so traction is not very good much of the time and it veers off course, making it necessary to push or pull it back in line. I will not use mine any more because it gives me so much arm and shoulder pain. Skip this and get one with either power or automatic steering.

Customer Reviews

Power Max 824 OE 24 in. 252cc Two-Stage Electric Start Gas Snow Blower is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 147.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great machine at a reasonable cost. I wasn't looking to spend this much money on this size machine but glad I did. Let me preface this review by stating I have only used the machine four times (in two weeks) since I purchased it but very pleased with it so far. The machine started by the second pull of the rope every time I started it. Turn the choke on, hit the primer button three times, and pull the rope. If it didn't start the first time it started on the second pull. Yes it has electric start but I wanted to see how well it would start with the rope. Excellent! I love the two speed reverse. We live in the country and had many hard 3-6 ft drifts to contend with. Not having the drift cutters on the Toro I had to break down the higher drifts with a shovel first but the Toro threw the snow a good 30 ft or better. The last snow we had was pretty wet and I was skeptical about the new anti clogging system for the chute. I never had an issue with the chute clogging at all. Overall a great machine! for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Purchased this snowblower to replace a 25+ year old 5 HP Toro snowblower that served me well. Th... Purchased this snowblower to replace a 25+ year old 5 HP Toro snowblower that served me well. This new snowblower removed a wet 4 to 6" snow as fast as I could walk behind it. I ran it through the slush at the bottom of the driveway from where the street was plowed and it didn't hesitate. I really like the adjustable shoot. If the snow is blowing back into your face, you can adjust the angle downward to continue to throw it in the direction you want without getting a face full of snow. It also throws the snow much further than the old unit ever did. I now wish I'd not waited to replace the old one sooner! I purchased this online and arranged for a home depot rental truck to bring it home. I had a neighbor on standby to help unload it when I got home. Did not realize the rental trucks have a ramp that would've allowed me to walk it off the truck by myself.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for a woman My husband used a 27” snowblower which I was actually afraid of. He is ill now and can’t use it anymore. We purchased this one because of its features and reviews. I find it much more manageable than the “big” one. I am not mechanically inclined but find it easy to start using the electric starter. I appreciate the start instructions directly on the machine. We have had 2 snowfalls of more than 10” since purchasing. I have been able do our driveway, walkway and dirt paths to the bird feeders with relative ease. Being a “weak” older woman the one thing I would have found great would be controllers to assist in turning the machine. Our 27” had triggers that would power turn the machine. I really miss that option with my weak upper arms. However it is manageable if I do it with care. A man would have no problem with it. The machine throws snow quite far and the one handed universal motion director takes a little getting used to but allows quite changing of the chute.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lots of power with 24" width. After well over 30 years I replaced my old Toro 521 blower. The 824 is wider but still fits in my garage area. The extra power is great and it really blows the snow a long distance. I've used it twice now and even the snow at the end of the driveway didn't cause it any problems. I like the device that you can not only move the shoot back and forth but also up and down (easily used by one hand without stopping). It is too new to comment on reliability but so far everything has been great.

I paid $45 to have the snowblower delivered to my house. The promised delivery date came and went without any word from anybody. I had to chase down the delivery by calling the transport company and only after that I was able to get it delivered. But I could not get it delivered to the house since the truck did not have a lift gate and I did not own a forklift. There was no mention of this by home depot when I ordered the snowblower. I ended up having to drive my pickup truck 15 miles to a business where the delivery truck was dropping off a load and that company generously used their forklift to unload the snowblower from the delivery truck and load it into my pickup. I think I should get my $45 back from Home Depot. Also, there was no user manual included in the bow which I now have to chase down and get delivered. They did provide a document with pictures which I used to assemble the snowblower without any problems. So far so good, but I have only used it once to blow about 3 inches of snow.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Beast I call this review the "BEAST" because this snow blower kick's butt. Wasn't sure if we were going to get any more snow this year as when I bought it looked the season had ended. However we got snow and this unit performed awesome cut right through the snow piles at the end of driveway left by the snow plow. It came pre-assembled took about 15 minutes to fully assemble the remaining parts. Works very well on gravel and or asphalt surfaces with no problem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product This is the best Snowblower I have owned. It starts easily, takes on lots of snow. I was in a situation where the snow got so deep around my house that I had to do 3 parallel runs on 3 sides to get the snow away and prevent the big meltdown from leaking directly into my basement. This thing performed like a champ and took on 3 and 4 foot drifts like it wasn't meant to. I am impressed so far. Highly recommend this Toro product

Bought this snow blower last year for maintenance department as we blow off side walks and dock area and around fire hydrants on property. Used anytime snow is 4 inches or more. OUTSTANDING piece of equipment at a good price. I am very impressed, used last year in April with a 15.5 inch wet snow fall and our doors were drifted up to 5 feet deep, handled it all, unit ran for 6 to 7 hours straight, blew ice chunks under snow off 18 wheelers in dock area, small pieces of broken wooden pallets, a few golf ball rocks from flower beds ect.. I just brought anther one yesterday for the my driveway at my house, will arrive Friday. Recommend this product
