Questions & Answers

Is this model self propelled?

Asked by: Danielle
Totally self propelled, but you can push it if you like. Has power steering that works very well.

Clean out tool

I just assembled the Toro Power Max 1028, but can not find the clean out tool. Does this unit come with a clean out tool or is it purchased separately. Some pics show it mounted between the front handles. Thank you.
Asked by: BrianH
Comes with the tool attached to handle bars behind engine. Never use it. Just use hands with gloves when unit is off. Only clogs on very wet, slushy snow.

Can the light on this unit be turned off or is it always on when the snowblower is running?

Asked by: BrianH
Always on.
Answered by: BuzzyJ
Date published: 2017-02-13

The assembly seems quite involved. Will Home Depot assemble it for a charge? (And then ship it.)

Asked by: Fred
Assembly takes about an hour.

Customer Reviews

Power Max HD 1028 OHXE 28 in. 302cc Two-Stage Gas Snow Blower is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 32.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Snowblower Toro makes the best snow blowers. Easy starting, tons of power, power steering, and hand warmers. Throws snow 40-50 feet with ease. Runs smooth and very quiet for a big machine. Replaced 25 year old 828 with this new 1028 HD. Old one still worked well but didn't start on first pull after all those years. It was time for an upgrade but the old one never gave me problems. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Machine, goes a little fast though. I can't say much about it since I haven't used it in snow yet. I can say that the delivery method was Excellent. It was delivered assembled, adjusted and with a small amount of TruFuel Non ethanol gas in it. I was shown how to use it and we started it up with 1 pull. It's a beast of a machine, but that's what I need. Something to do the work for me and not require a lot of manhandling. The turning levers makes it surprisingly easy to maneuver. The only con I can see so far is the speed. Speed selector 1 is real slow, 2 is what I would call normal, 3 is kinda fast but good for moving it back to the garage or maybe for getting that extra push you need sometimes for the stubborn pile left by the plow. Speeds 4, 5 and 6 are ridiculously fast, especially on slippery snow and ice. Speed 2 reverse is a bit fast too. I backed it up in speed 2 and almost got run over by it. Speed 1 is ok. I will try and update after using it in the snow. At face value I think it's going to work just fine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far so good ... The build quality is excellent and based on the test run I did it starts quickly and easily. It has yet to snow enough to test the full feature set but I am hopeful the machine lives up to its reputation.
Date published: 2017-12-02
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the money I've havent got to try it in snow yet but i have used it a couple of times breaking up a hard snow drift in my driveway. If it only throws the snow half as far as it was throwing these half ice/half snow chunks then I'll still be impressed with its performance. I purchased online and had it delivered to my house. It was still in the box and needing the final setup completed which was a piece of cake. A ratchet and socket was more efficient than the wrenches they suggest in the instructions and the instructions were detailed and easy to understand once I took the extra second to read them vs skimming over them real quick like men typically do. My only regret is waiting to make the purchase until so late in the winter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from my new favorite toy! i purchased this snow blower to replace a 5 year old john deere 30" snow blower that decided to die AGAIN in the middle of our most recent snow storm here in the north east .being "later in the season" i didn`t have much of a selection,, but i`m glad i didn`t as this is the perfect snow blower !! my 87 year old mother would have no trouble turning this thanks to the power steering . the "joystick" chute control takes a bit of getting used to but well worth it , it went through 2 ft of snow as if it was barely there , i do wish it had 2 headlights but i imagine i could always add one if i really wanted to. starts on first pull ( i haven`t had to used the electric start yet ) ..my only regret,,, i didn`t buy it sooner

Rated 5 out of 5 by from beast. Have used this 1028 machine in three storms thus far here in Maine 6 inches and less with plow drifts up to 2 ft. I am thrilled with my purchase. I look forward to more snow. Auger control is best ive used. Debated about going with the Ariens for a while and glad i went with a machine with lever steering controll. This machine is a beast and makes my 150 ft 2 car driveway fun to snowblow. It did get slightly damaged (small ding on bucket) on shipment to my house and took about an hour for me tk assemble but home depot was excellent in making it right.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from power max 1028 snow blower bought on line from home depot at home depot store , clerk was very helpful .came in two days earlier .they loaded it on' my truck and i took it home .assembly was straight forward and instructions were easy to follow. and 'would you know it' it started on the first pull.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smooth Operator I previously had a Toro 8 hp w/ Tecumseh engine from1998. Never had a problem & loved the machine. Gave it to my son and bought this. Used only a few times so far, but I like it alot. The engine is smoother and quieter. Starts immediately every time. The large fuel opening is a welcome improvement as are the speed detents and especially the power turn idea. The joystick operation is a little jerky and has a slight learning curve, but much better than my old manual adjustment Will revise if I have a problem, but I doubt that I will
