Asked by red November 22, 2020

Answer

Two stage snow blowers will clear majority of the snow off of your driveway however they aren’t designed to engage with a driveway surface like a single stage. This will tend to leave a very light dusting on smooth surfaces such as asphalt or concrete. If your single stage engages with the ground today, you may notice a difference. If that extremely light dusting isn’t your preference, you may want to consider Toro’s newer line of single stage Power Clear’s. Both their 721’s and 821’s are self-propelled and will assist a user through snow. https://www.homedepot.com/collection/Outdoors/Toro-Snow-Throwers/Family-314754958?omsid=309982166. Thank you.

Do you get the starter cord when you order this snowblower? I just recieved mine and there was no power start cord

Asked by Nick October 28, 2020
1
Answer

The extension cord is not included. Use only a UL-listed, 16-gauge extension cord recommended for outdoor use that is not longer than 15 m (50 ft). To use the electric starter, connect a power cord to the plug-in first and then to a power outlet. Thank you.

I purchased this model to replace my 25 year old Toro 828 for our New England winters. Light and fluffy or heavy and wet snow, even slush have not been a problem for this machine. The engine is strong and starts on the first or second pull. I have not had any issues with clogging like with my old snow blower. The power assisted steering is probably my favorite feature. Tight turns and turning around are no longer an issue. The LED light is bright and the location make it very useable when the sun goes down and the work is not done yet. My driveway is mostly paved but I do have a part that is gravel. It was important for me to not have to deal with shear pins in case I happened to suck up something by mistake. All being said, I am very happy with my new Toro Power Max HD 928. Home Depot assembled it for me and had it ready to go when I arrived. As you can tell, I would recommend this snow blower.

So far so good. Had the P Max about a month now and encountered 3 storms here in Minnesota. 1st storm was a good test of wet snow and the ability to chuck that stuff yards away. Storm today was light and fluffy and that was launched into the sky and is last seen heading west. All kidding aside starts good and fires up with electric start. Love the stick shift for moving the chute to chuck snow in all directions. The reality that hit me today is that my wife probably could not operate the controls effectively. Needs your "head" in the game using the shifter and auger control as you navigate curves and inclines. That is ok with me as I am safety conscious. A test of my happiness will be the long term reliability of this machine. My last snow blower was a 8 HP MTD and was still going at 14 years. I wanted more horsepower and that is why I got this one.. The user directions require an oil change after the first 5 hrs of use. Based on that I would recommend getting the maintenance kit up front like I did. That way you also may get another year on the warranty.

I just received the assembled blower from Home Depot. There is no power cord. I paid extra for an electric start and they don't provide a power cord? I called the store and spent 30 minutes on the phone trying to find out if the power cord was supposed to come with it. There is no indication on Toro's website whether it should be included or not. Might be a great product but this is a silly oversight.

Nice machine, good price
Customer review from toro.com logo
I bought this machine in September, it was delivered in October ahead of the scheduled delivery estimate right to my driveway,very handy. It was very easy to assemble as it was nearly complete right out of the box, took about half an hour and it was done. It starts easily with or the cord or the electric start.
