Product Overview

  • Snow-clearing muscle
  • Change the chute and deflector in one motion with Quick Stick
  • Don't stop, no sheer pins with the commercial-grade auger gearbox
Winter's biggest snowfalls are no match for the 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 metal 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 prevent clogging and maximize clearing efficiency, meaning no more shear pins. The blower is also equipped with a heavy-duty auger gear box. 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 (Residential only), you can rest easy knowing that you're prepared for anything winter has in store. Count on it.

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.

Toro Power Max 824 OE 24 in. 252cc Two-Stage Electric Start Gas Snow Blower is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 153.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from The chute assembly fell apart after only two uses. I’m... The chute assembly fell apart after only two uses. I’m now needing to take back to Home Depot Marlboro MA to have the machine fixed so I can use it for winter 2019. Very disappointing situation, and Home Depot staff have no ability to pick up such a heavy piece of equipment so I need to return it.

What I would suggest is that try not to buy a preassembled machine from the floor. That is what I did because it was the only one available and I wanted to use my 10% off coupon, only to find out that most of the papers and the second key were missing

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bought this snow blower last year for maintenance department as we blow off side walks and dock ... 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

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 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.
