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.

Ask me in February. Though I don’t expect any problems. This thing is sturdy. I had a lower model and different brand and the way I see it is I paid double the price for four times the machine in strength and power. That’s a win!
