Product Overview

When the snow gets serious, counter Mother Nature's punches with the Power Max HD 928 OAE with 265cc Toro Premium 4-cycle OHV engine. Move even the deepest snow quickly with a 28 in. clearing width and 21 in. intake height and throw it up to 45 ft. The innovative Quick Stick control allows you to quickly and easily change chute direction and chute deflector with a single, smooth motion. Convenient 1-hand operation levers allow single-handed operation, freeing the other hand to change speeds or the chute control without stopping. This self-propelled machine has automatic steering for easy turning, and LED headlights are standard. Shear pins are a thing of the past thanks to the exclusive Anti-Clogging System that meters snow intake to prevent clogging and maximize clearing efficiency. The blower is also equipped with a commercial grade auger gearbox. 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 and 1-year commercial warranty you can rest easy knowing that you're prepared for anything winter has in store. Count on it.

Does this machine have power steering? Looks like it does in pictures, has triggers.

Asked by Curt November 5, 2018

Answers

It does not have a clutch system like the older models did but it has an internal wheel disengagement system so the inside wheel does not turn, only the outside wheel does which makes it very easy to turn 180 degrees- you just have to be quick enuf to follow it:-)

My first snow blower, and it's impressive! Bright LED, powerful engine, and great throwing distance.
I wasn't sure about a snow blower with a gravel driveway, but with the shoes all the way down, it's like a snow machine! It cuts right through deep wet lake-effect snow! I'm very impressed with the build quality, the engine power, the throwing distance, the LED headlight, and the ease-of-use. I couldn't say enough great things about this machine. I actually look forward to the next snow storm. Bring it on!

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.

This machine is built for heavy use. It starts easily and it worked well in heavy, wet snow, not clogging at all for me, even going through icy and slushy material. Design concerns: 1) The wheel drive gear selector should be located with the wheel clutch, but they are on opposite sides of the control panel. 2) The single lever control for the chute is great, except that its thin plastic is going to make it imperative that the user is careful not to force it when there is resistance to movement. 3) Comment only: Why do I need a throttle on a snow blower? It would be simpler to have it designed to run at its maximum torque and just stay there. One landed quality issue: Mine came with almost twice the maximum amount of crankcase oil that it should have. I had to drain the excess off before use.
