Preforms as advertised. Final assembly with instructions was easily accomplished. Great performance in both dry and damp snow. love the non-stick material on the snow chute.
I replaced a Toro that I had used since the mid-seventies. there is question in my mind but to purchase another Toro. I could not ask for better performance , dependability and service over the years

Rated 3 out of 5??by Capecodman Gas Valve Malfucntion after only 7 Uses
I would have given this snowblower a much higher rating, but since the gas On/Off valve malfunctioned after only 7 uses, it does me absolutely no good to have a brand new machine sitting at the top of my driveway while I hand shovel.
The snowblower is less than 3 months old. The last time I tried to use it, the engine would start after priming, but quickly quit. I wondered if perhaps the gas line had frozen since I verified the valve was in the ON position and the tank was full.
3 days later when it warmed up to near 50, I attempted to start it with the same result. It obviously wasn't a frozen gas line at the temperature. It was only after a lot of fooling around we found the engine was only getting enough gas to keep running if we put the On/Off switch in the Off position. Obviously something has gone very wrong with this plastic part.
Very, very disappointing for a brand new Toro, and a big problem for an older man such as myself who can't hand shovel.

I haven't used this yet, just tested out everything on it and I'm really impressed. Toro has been my #1 for years and never let me down. I recommend all their products

Rated 5 out of 5??by NDGMontreal Great machine. Dependable and durable
Recently purchased this machine and have only used it a few times. But it has been dependable and easy to use so far, in medium to heavy snow. Starts easily with the pull cord, so have not used the electric start yet.

Rated 5 out of 5??by Waffles Powerful, Compact, Needs Maintainance
I have the 722E (38608), which is essentially a 2013 model that's more basic (i.e. no quick shoot, Power Max anti-clogging technology, serrated impellers..). It's the same engine and 22" wide, crank to move the shoot, and it's awesome. I live in MN and the 2013-2014 winter has given plenty of testing. Goes thru 14" drifts with ease; doesn't bog while going throw 3' plow snow @ end of driveway; and it has ample throwing distance. A few things I've noticed... when the snow is really heavy, throwing performance decreases (likely need a larger model with better throwing capacity). Also, some of the assembly bolts holding handle bars to the unit itself (down near the tires) have come loose, so the machine doesn't sit level with the ground always (I put lock nuts on, but it requires continual tightening). For those questioning whether the 724OE will do the job, it will. If my older-generation sibling version can do it with ease in heavy MN winters, surely the 724OE will perform as expected.

Rated 5 out of 5??by Bill1958 Another great Toro product!
I just got this Snow Blower today after getting pounded with snow all winter I am now anxious for it to snow! I am a repeat Toro Customer as I already have a Toro Personal Pace walk behind mower that is several years old. That sold me on Toro products. The ease of operation and Toro dependability had me sold.

Rated 4 out of 5??by eillob I like it but I have a few issues
This snow blower works very well for throwing dry snow I mean it can really throw it, however it doesn't work well throwing wet sloppy snow. It just sort of fills the chute and runs down the side. Another issue I have is it doesn't clean down to the concrete, you end up with about a 1/4 to 1/2 of snow left after you make a pass. The problem here is that thin layer tends to turn to ice if you don't clean it off. So in a way you almost need a single stage (that will clean down to the concrete) as well or your back to shoveling again. That's a little hard to swallow after dropping $900 bucks. The blower is self propelled, one wheel has power going to it, this is fine if you don't have more then 4 inches on the ground. Beyond that you better lock the other wheel or your gonna fight to keep it strait. The last problem I have is the plastic chute, it works well but feels cheap. For $900 bucks I would really prefer more metal. Its a good blower, but I foresee a single stage in my future.
