Don't know but this unit has rectangular bars connecting the handles to the machine not the round bars on other models so use caution. Maybe contact Toro. Good luck.

Only had limited usage so far
Customer review from toro.com logo
Throrws snow and wet snow well. However very difficult tokeep the auger drive and wheel drive controls down for extended period. Ie your arms judt get tired. This machine is also a little heavier thsn my llsst snowblower and it takes a little more effort to masnever. The other issue I have is with the shute control jkloysdtick. Although it is convenient to have both directuion and angle on tHe one control, it is clumsy to use in thst if you are trying to simply change the direction you also have to readjust angle which seems to want to repodition when you go to release Especially when you are trying tyo position direction st the limits of travel.

Only had this for a few days, good quality. Chute control, I think is very good, easy to use. Runs good from the beginning. Power steering very good, however had to adjust one trigger cable so it would work correctly. The unit came to Home Depot assembled, removed box at store and took home. I think only this model comes assembled but not sure. I read several reviews which said 1st gear was too fast, I found the same problem, however the forward and reverse speeds are not actual gears but settings on a friction disk. You can adjust the forward and reverse speeds by adjusting a trunnion which is like a nut on the threaded rod at the base of the speed control handle on the dash board. There is a cotter pin you remove from the trunnion, also two washers and turn the trunnion up or down to increase of decrease the forward and reverse speeds. If you slow the forward speeds the reverse speeds increase and if you slow the reverse speeds the forward speeds increase. I slowed the forward speeds to a slow speed in 1st slot and reverse increased but not to uncomfortable speed. This procedure is in the online manual. However it says it is used if reverse 1 actually goes forward or forward 1 actually goes backward. Point is you can change speeds on the variable friction disk drive very easily. Anyone can do it. I will do further review after snow blowing. So far the machine seems heavy duty but time will tell.

So far so good. This snowblower is very powerful. I have only had snow as deep as six inches to blow but it rolled right through it. I had my kid take some video of it in action. Here it is. https://youtu.be/6513I_y92bA

I am attempting to explain further why I am very disappointed with this machine but so far unsuccessful (JohnD). The throttle barely goes 3/4 of the way and I am not getting anywhere near 420ccs. Perhaps that is why the machine can barely clean 2 inches of snow without leaving a mess on my driveway. I plan on either returning or getting some type of assistance from Toro. To be continued . . . .
