Rated 5 out of 5 Save my hide (back)!!
This product was purchased as a immediate replacement for a 24 5HP model that broke the morning of a big storm this past winter. After going to three different Home Depot stores we found one still in stock. Not what I was planning on spending but glad I did.
This thing has save my back from countless hours of shoveling. More importantly it was easy enough to start. Something my wife has not been able to do with the bigger unit. Came home one day to a fresh cleaned driveway.

Rated 5 out of 5??by SteveK This snowblower is unbelievable!!
I can't believe that I went this long without a snowblower. After suffering through a lot of snow this winter in Chicago, I decided to go and get this Toro. I was lucky enough to get the last one at Home Depot. It was easy to get going right out of the box and always started on the first pull, or by just pushing a button. My son enjoyed using it just as much as I did. It throws the snow far and keeps up with the heavy stuff.

Rated 5 out of 5??by Chimp Excellent for light-moderate use
first or second pull start every time. It moves far more snow far more quickly than you would expect (I had similar experience with 2 cycle Toro single stage blower before, so I was not surprised).
2 cons: 1) you don't have a remote (meaning near the handle) control to turn the discharge chute - you have to move it manually by hand, which gets tiresome after an hour or so. 2) I have a sloping driveway and when going downhill, the machine wants to pull me much faster than I want to go - I have to hold it back which is tiring.

This product has great features. It was very easy to use, started up every time without any problems. With all the snow we had this winter, I am so happy that I bought it.

Rated 5 out of 5??by playah71 glad i DIDN'T have to remove the snow the OLD SCHOOL way. BUT if i had to, it would have been a long, slow process.
the Chicagoland area got hit with the most snow it has had in about 35 years. thanks to my snowblower, I was able to clean my sidewalk, driveway, and helped neighbors, as well as my daughter's. It made the difference between getting the job done, and waiting for the snow to melt, OR waiting until someone came around asking if I wanted it done. I think at 1 point, the snow was @ least 8 inches or more deep. seems to me at 1 time, it was probably 16 inches deep. had to back up, and attack it again, until I got it down where I could just keep in going.

Performed as expected. The unit removed and discharged the snow in the direction intended.

Rated 5 out of 5??by mrcheap Best snowblower i have owned
With all the snow we got this year has been worth every penny I spent. Either 2in. or 12ins. moved it all with no problem. When I go to start it always first pull, guess I should try the electric start, but it starts so easy.

Starts right up with a pull. It's loud but very powerful for what you pay for and it's throwing the snow 50% plus further from my last single stage snowblower.
