Q: How easy to assemble once received?
by Jimmmy from New York on November 18, 2011

A: This is going to be extremely easy. The handle bars are going to come folded over the unit. You would want to fold them up and tighten the wing nuts. The other part would be attaching the chute, which you would just tighten down with a wrench.

Q: CAN THE TORO 621 QZE MODEL38459
FIT IN THE BACK OF A SUV LIKE THE HONDA
PILOT OR JEEP GRAND CHEROKEE?

by Anonymous from New York on August 15, 2011

A: If you fold down the upper handle, any of the Toro single stage snow blowers will fit in the back of an SUV. The upper handle is easily folder down by simply loosening a knob on either side of the handle.

Let It Snow!!!!
Purchased on a Thursday evening after a few weeks of shopping around. It arrived on Monday morning.
I recently moved here from an area of the country that doesn't get snow. I shoveled for a couple years, but it just hurt my back too much. I knew after last year & the ongoing sore back, I had to buy one. After hearing the farmers almanac prediction for this year, I started shopping around in Early September. I purchased from this company because they offered the same ones I had already... more

Surving Snowmageddon 2010
The snow was so bad during this historic snow storm that the day UPS was scheduled to deliver my Toro, UPS had to reschedule the delivery from Friday due to adverse weather conditions to the following Monday. I waited all day for my Toro only to learn through the UPS tracking system that night they needed to reschedule delivery. That was disappointing.

It's important to read the manual to assemble it properly. It even came with the proper oil. After assembly, pouring in the oil and gas,... more

Got It In 2 Days- Tested On 3 Feet Of Snow
Well she did it... it took a few hours, but it was 3 feet of snow. Push in, then ram, push and ram; above, then below.

It even cleared the end of the driveway which had almost 4 feet. I barely used the shovel.

She starts right up and goes to work.

Toro Power Clear 418zr
This machine is fantastic. Light weight, easy to start, really throws the snow. The Toro Power Clear 418ZR takes less time to clear our 3 car drive way, corner lot sidewalks plus those of a neighbor. One storm left 8 inches of snow, the Toro Power Clear cleared it with ease. So glad my wife insisted this is what she wanted for her birthday. She has not used it but enjoys watching me.

Smallest Made That Is Still Gas!
Just what the Doctor ordered. No wrestling this thing around and can handle 6 inches of snow easily. If there's more snow, take smaller bites. I'm usually done while everyone else is still getting theirs out. Pick it up with one hand.

Good Little Unit
The order was placed around midnight on Feb 7th. It arrived at my home in S.E. Michigan at 3pm on the 8th. I did not pay for priority shipping. It took about 15 minutes to put the handle and deflector on and fill the oil (included). I had 4" of wet snow waiting in the driveway.

It seems sturdy and well made. It moved the snow well. Depending on how the deflector is angled, I got good distance. I did bog the motor in the street with real deep, wet snow. If you let the blower do the work,... more

Amazing Snow Blower
We bought this unit from Snow Blowers Direct for more than one hundred dollars less than our local big box store. It was shipped that day and arrived very quickly. We carry other snow blowers on our snow plow trucks. Once the salt/sand spreaders are installed on the trucks it takes two men to lift those snow blowers (more than one hundred pounds), over the side of our trucks. This made getting the blower in and out of the truck difficult, if the driver brought his girlfriend instead of another... more

Works Great. Just Little.
I picked this model because I needed to transport in an suv and I need to be able to lift it in myself. I can do both easily. It does a great job on lite snow, and we had 12 inches here yesterday, and it handled it well. I like not having to mix gas and oil. It is easy to fill with gas, and it's easy to see how much is left. I like the ease of controlling where the snow goes. It starts easily. For the money, I think it's a good deal. If you need to move a lot of snow fast, it's a little... more

Good Little Blower
Perfect for what it's designed for ... 2" - 8" of snow on a single pass. If it gets deeper than that, you may need to do a double pass to clean up. But let's be real, most snowfalls are in this range, and I bought this unit with that in mind. Always use the 80/20 rule. Other than being a good snow blower, it's small and doesn't take up hardly any room in my 2 car garage. That's a bonus!
Pros: Easy To Use, Light Weight, Reliable, Easy To Store

Great Product
Recently purchased this snow blower, to replace a 14 year old Toro. Basically the same unit just a newer model. I was pleased with the fast shipping, and easy assembly of the blower. This little unit is great, nice not to have to mix the oil and the fuel, and the 2 year second pull start is something, I will hold Toro too. So far so good, we have had over 36 inches of snow in December, so I have tested it quite a few times already. Just hope this one lasts as long as old one did. So after only... more

Good Bank For Your Buck
I bought this blower for my snow plow business. Being that it weighs on 58 lbs this is the perfect snow blower to haul around in the back of my work trucks. The snow blower arrived at my doorstep only two days after I ordered it.

There was barley any assembly required. Pretty much all I had to do was fill the blower with oil and gas, screw in a few bolts, and I was good to go. The fact that free shipping, and no sales tax is included (if you don't live in the state of Illinois)
