I got this at the end of the season but it is what I was looking for. A small unit that will allow me to do sidewalks and around the drive. Like the 4 cycle engine much more than the old 2 strokes.
The price of the product is lower than I expected. It is easy to assemble. It is light weight but able to clean heavy snow; even with wet snow. Easy to operate. Start easily. I recommended to my friends.
The snow chute handle is way to short. I modified mine for ease of use with no bending down. You could have done the same for very little money. But overall a good machine. Have not used it yet with any significant snow depth.
I am still in my first season with this machine, but so far so good. It has kept up with the severe winter storms we have had. it even threw a wet heavy snow we had without the chute clogging even once!
This product handles well. It is sturdy but light enough for me to operate. The different angles make it easy to gauge where and how far to throw the snow. It cleans the snow down to the tar which is beneficial for 'after the storm melting". If expecting a bigger storm I do need to snow blow 2-3 times due to the amount of snow it can handle. The choke seems a little flimsy and I'm concerned about it breaking at some point. Other than that this is a great purchase for me and my needs!
Replaced an ailing 2 stroke with this new 4 stroke, and it was put right to the test. It's up 10cc and 2 inches of clearing width over my old machine. Handled 10 inches of Minnesota snow right out of the box.
Its doing the job well. We had 4 times snow after the purchase with the maximum of 5 inches. This is my first snow blower and as a new bee, its very easy to use and light weight. It is starting at a single pull in the very cold weather (less than 0F) . I didn't face any issues so far.
I purchased two of these machines And both of them would not start one month after the two year warranty was up. Both had to be taken to a mechanic for repair to work on carburetor. I had my previous one for over 30 years and it was very reliable.
I'm a new home owner in a northern state and quickly tapped out from the brutal effort of shoveling my driveway. A friend recommended the Toro Power Clear 518 ZR, it also has lots of good reviews and I just couldn't be happier with owning one! Being new house poor, I'm on a tight budget and this snowblower is very affordable. It was easy to assemble and looks to be made of good quality durable parts. It's a simple machine with not much to go wrong and has a good warranty if anything does. It's also easy to operate, always starts in 1-2 pulls and clears heavy snow at a depth it has no business even attempting. What used to take me an hour of heart attack inducing shoveling now only takes a 15 minute walk while this little beast does all the hard work. It's also small and light enough to store inside my one car garage where it waits for the next snowfall. If you're on the fence while shopping for smaller snowblowers... just get this one... it's really great!
I bought my first power clear 10 years ago. It was a 2 stoke. It served me well for all those years. I brought it in for service and asked about trading it for a 4 stroke model. I love my new 4stroke toro even more than the first one. I highly recommend toro powerclear.
