Just Buy It
So... we live in New York and for 25 years we have not had a snowblower. Since all the kids are off to college I knew I had a good Christmas gift idea this year! The first storm this year my husband walked in after doing our property and the neighbors and kissed me and said it was the best gift ever. Starts on first pull. Clears all the way to pavement and throws plenty far for our needs and we have a long driveway. So easy to use!
Pros: Easy To Use, I'd Buy It Again, Light Weight, Exceeded Expectations

"I never thought of buying a snowblower on line,but all of the help and Q&A made it so easy to pick one and no tax and free shipping made it a no brainer. I was a little nervous about putting it together because my husband is not the mechanical type, so I knew I would be the one assembling. It was very very easy... just the handle and the shoot."

Featherweight Workhorse During The Blizzard Of 16'
Purchased this unit in in September 2015 and just got the opportunity to use it this weekend during the "Blizzard of 2016". I tested the unit it advance and added a good fuel stabilizer. Started on first pull and ran flawlessly, for well over six hours (as recommended changed oil on the fly after first two hours) for both my 35 yard+ driveway and walkways and my neighbors.

Was concerned with the size (due to where we live in Pennsylvania got around 32 inches of snow) and I thought... more

Perfect For The Homeowner
The Toro Power Clear 621 combines power and maneuverability which is exactly what you need as a homeowner. And the fact that my wife can manage it is a plus, something she couldn't do with a 2-stage unit. It handled the recent 30+ inches better than expected, although excels at 15" and under.

And light enough to pull up a few steps onto our back deck, again not something you would ever consider with a 2-stage unit. Don't let the small size fool you, it is all you need for your... more

The Toro Power Clear 621 Qzr Performed Exceptionally Well
I had never owned or used a snow blower before. I ordered it on line Tuesday and received it 2 days later, Thursday and it snowed the next day on Friday thru Sunday Morning over 26 inches. It was easy to put together. It started on the first pull. I have a 2 car wide driveway over 80 feet long. The machine performed great for it's size making the job much easier than shoveling. I was very pleased and impressed with the product. I have at least 5 neighbors who said they will be purchasing... more

Excellent Snow Blower
Do yourself a favor and buy a Toro if you're looking for a snow blower. This is the third of this model I have purchased in the past 5 years.

I have some apartments that I own and now leave one at each place, I think the thing I like the most is the quick shoot, vs not having similar on some brands I've owned.

Buy one, you'll be glad you did.

Toro Brand Not What It Once Was
I purchased the Toro Power Clear 621 QZR two years ago. I was impressed with the reviews here on this website. My main motivations for buying this were: reputation of Toro brand, powerful single stage system that allowed me to store easily in my small garage, and the guaranteed to start feature. I would not buy this brand again, but if I did, I would certainly get the electric start.

The machine ran fine in my first winter. I only used it two times due to mild winter. In my second... more

Toro 163cc - With Electric Start
I had a great Toro single stage snowblower from 1996 and gave it to my son-in-law. I then purchased a new unit with electric start. I have had nothing but trouble even after the starter was replaced... then the carburetor replaced.

The West Chester Lawn & Garden authorized repair dealer said they fixed the elec. start. It worked 1 time them froze up with a screeching sound when I started it approx. 2 days later They then said it was out of warranty... totally disappointed in Toro...... more

Great Service, Great Snow Blower
The 15 year old hand-me-down snow blower had seen its last winter and after shopping around the Toro 621 QZT seemed like the best blower out there for the money. I have a three car driveway and the quick shoot feature works great at reducing the time I have to spend turning the chute side to side.

Like all my Toro products, it starts on the first or second pull so I opted to save some money and skip the electric start version. We have limited snow so far this year in Ohio so I haven't really... more

Flawless Blow Job
This is the second Toro Power Clear snow blower I have purchased. It's the second because the first, a 421 which I purchased 3 years ago, after a small minor recall, performed so well I decided to get one for another property I manage. They both start consistently on the first pull and get the job done quickly. A great plus with the 4 stroke models is that you don't smell like exhaust fumes when you are done. Both were purchased through Snow Blowers Direct and the purchase and delivery was... more

Did My Research
I just got the Toro 621QZR and it snowed the next day. (that never happens) I love my new toy. It is so easy to use, starts on the second pull as advertised. It does a great job and is SO MUCH better than a snow shovel. I decided to go with the single stage after learning that a two stage doesn't clean all the way to the pavement like the single stage. I had a previously fallen 22 inch pile of snow next to a wall at the edge of the driveway and the Toro cut right through it and threw it... more

Toro Customer Service Is Sub Par
Bought my snow blower back in October and after using it four times, the pull start recoil broke on the fifth use. Brought the snow blower into a Toro service shop, the part is on back order for the past three weeks. Service shop can't get a clear answer from Toro as to when they will have the part, so I called Toro and the response I received was we don't know when the part will be available and a comment that I should have bought the snow blower online. I would highly recommend Snow... more

Reliable Fast Snow Blower
We bought this snow blower during the snowstorms of 2014/ Chiberia. We live in Chicago and had a course of 50 inches of snow throughout winter. This snow blower was extremely reliable. It cleaned about fifty yards around the house. We are very satisfied with our purchase.
Pros: Easy To Use, Durable, Price, High Quality
Cons: Very Noisy

Light weight but surprised how efficiently it cleared and blew snow the was 8" deep and also wet snow. Did not clog the chute but rather blew it away at a good distance.

All-time November Snowfall - No Problem!
2 weeks ago, we received biggest 48 hour November snowfall of all time. 9.9 inches of wettest snow possible. Bottom 2 inches more slush than snow. Notwithstanding, my new Toro, in its first use, cleaned my drive to a bare surface. I absolutely love the Zip control on chute. Great distance control of throw with easy adjust.

Low sound level under full load deceptive of muscular power. I did not get with electric start. Manual pull start performed per claimed ease. After this initial... more

All I Can Say Is Wow!
I had a 3hp blower that just couldn't move snow unless it was dry and less than 2 inches. This Toro is a mighty max machine. With the recent snowfall, this machine handled throwing the snow with ease. It has never bogged down, even when the snow was higher than the machine itself. It pulls itself along the driveway at a good pace, without missing anything...it gets down to the surface very well. Starts on the third pull and never shows signs of bogging down. Sorry I didn't get a new blower... more

A Very Pleased Customer
The snow blower was purchased for our water company office which is located in a mountain valley of Utah. The snow blower came on a Wednesday and it was easily put together. The next morning I was able to put the machine to the test since it snowed about six inches.

The snow blower fired right up and I had cleared in 15 minutes what used to take an hour or more with a hand shovel. Overall I have been very pleased with the machine and the service provided by Snow Blowers Direct.com.

Just What I Had Hoped For
I ordered this new Toro to replace my 12 year old "Snow Commander" that was losing its throwing power. I was a little skeptical about having the same power that the "Commander" had when it was newer. I was pleased with the power of this little guy. More than enough for the 6-8 inches that we have had so far this winter. The plus for me is how light and quiet it is. I have a new knee and some heart issues, so the lighter weight machine really helps (about 25 lbs. lighter... more

Seems Like A Great Machine!
I haven't had the opportunity to use the blower yet, but out of the box and put together, it looks like a good machine. I mistakenly ordered the model without electric start, so hopefully, I don't regret that.

But I love that you have the ability to turn the shoot and rotate it up and down. Also, the fact that the gas and oil don't need to be mixed makes this machine easier to deal with.

It seems like it's going to handle my Michigan winters well!

Toro 621qzr-great Snow Blower
I ordered the 621 QZR and couldn't be more happy with it. My only complaint was that the drive spring and cover was not attached to the cable and I thought it was missing until I looked around for it. I finally found it in the machine. The customer service was not what I would have expected either.

I have been considering buying a snow blower for the past two years. After thorough research, I found Snowblowersdirect had the best price and they had what I wanted in stock. I received the snow blower within 2 days of the order and I could follow the shipment online. I was very impressed with the whole process. The price was right.

The Non-story
After over 50 yrs of shoveling snow, I decided to get a snow blower. We had the 2nd snowiest February on record and the least snowiest March. The machine looks good and it has oil in it and I'm ready to go. Hopefully the weather gods and Al Gore will get their act together so I can give you a report.
