Q: For clarity this is a push button start, BUT it is required to be plugged in to an outlet during the initial startup?
What size outlet?
It is ONLY during the starting correct? Following the start up it can be unplugged, correct?

by Jeremy from Ohio on December 05, 2015

A: Jeremy - you are correct. You plug the starter cord into any standard household outlet. Once the snow blower is started, you unplug the cord from the electric start module before using the snow blower.
by Robert, Product Expert
Q: Is it regular gas or mix
by Orlando Vela from Illinois on November 20, 2015

A: Orlando - all of the gas-powered snow blowers we sell have 4-cycle engines. Gas goes in the fuel tank and oil goes in the crankcase - same as in your car. No mixing. You would use regular grade 87 octane gas with no more than a 10% ethanol content.
by Robert, Product Expert
Q: In the specs, it states that the 38742 is self-propelled. However, you just answered Carol's question but talking about the incorrect Toro (38473). So the real question is, "Is the Toro 38742 self-propelled or are the specs false advertisement?" Not trying to be witty, but I'd like the correct answer before purchasing.
by Dianah from Minnesota on October 07, 2015

A: Dianah - the Toro single stage snow blowers, including the model 38742, have what's called a "Power Propel System". This system keeps the auger paddles in constant contact with the pavement, and the auger paddles help pull the snow blower forward when they are engaged. So the wheels are not powered as they would be on a self-propelled lawn mower, but these snow blowers will "pull" themselves along when the auger paddles are engaged and spinning.
by Robert, Product Expert
Q: Is this Snow Blower "Self-Propelled?
by Carol from New York on October 10, 2014

A: Carol - a Toro 38473 is not self-propelled. This model does have an auger assisted drive system. The front auger paddles will help pull the snow blower forward when they are engaged. There would no "assistance" for backing up or going in reverse however.

My First Snow Blower, Bye Bye Shovel, My Back Thanks You
I am a rare story of someone that was fortunate enough to have ordered this before the late January 2016 snow storm hit. This entry level Toro Power Clear 721 E worked perfectly and arrived on time! We had a total accumulation of 18" and this Toro performed better than I expected.

It did so well that I went around to my neighbor's driveways and assisted them in clearing the snow. The limitation of this type I "think" is when you have a driveway that has been driven on and... more

Fantastic Product/worked Flawlessly
All I can say about this machine is WOW. When it arrived, all I had to do was unfold the handle and tighten it, install the chute, put in the oil and gas and started it for a few minutes so it would be ready to go tackle the snow.

On Saturday (1/23) I woke up to about 16 inches of snow, at that time I didn't know how the machine would work. But after I started the snow blower it just cut through the snow like butter. I was amazed at how well it worked, and because of that, I was able to... more

"I live in Bowie, MD and from (1/22 - 1/24) we were hit with over (2) feet of snow. Prior to this, I found out there was a good certainty of getting a blizzard, so I decided to order a snow blower. Late morning on Tuesday (1/19), I placed an order with Snow Blowers Direct. I was pleasantly surprised when I received notification that the snow blower shipped the same day and I didn't even request expedited shipping. The snow blower arrived on Thursday (1/21) via FedEx. I can't thank Snow Blowers Direct enough for shipping out the machine so quickly."

Excellent Machine
I used it last year in Wisconsin. We did not have a lot of snow this past year but the unit did very well clearing snow quickly and powerfully. Tried the electric start for fun and it worked great. The pull start worked on the first or second pull.

Trustworthy Company
Blower arrived promptly, along with free cover. Easy assembly...15 minutes max. Started right up. No snow yet, thank God, but if this machine is as good as my previous single stage Toro, I'll be very satisfied. Feels good not to pay tax or shipping.

Excellant Quality
This snow blower is very powerful for its size and handles a 4-6 inch snow effortlessly. Starts easily, so easily in fact that for most people the electric start feature is unneeded. If you cant pull the recoil cord, you probably shouldn't be operating the snow blower!

So Where's The Snow?
After breaking my back for years, I finally ordered this snowblower just before the New Year. Delivery was fast--came on second day I think. A little struggle getting it put together, but only complaint is that the opening for oil is tucked well underneath, and you have to tilt the machine on its nose to fill the oil, and then you can't really use the dipstick correctly.

At the least, Toro should have calibrated the dipstick for measuring the oil with the machine tilted forward. Anyway,... more
Pros: Easy To Use, Easy To Store, Fast, Easy To Start

Major Snow
The 721 powers through windrows left by the plow and clears down to the pavement. Starts on first pull every time. We used to own the small model (99cc).

It was good for light snowfalls, but when the big stuff hits, it couldn't keep up. This model is only good for paved surfaces, use a two stage for gravel or dirt.

Starts On First Pull!
We owned the smaller model TORO 18" our first two seasons, but just purchased this one. It starts even better than the 99cc model, but both started well in cold temps. The small one could not handle heavy wet snow of over 1.5 inches, the 721 is much more powerful and really throws snow well. In retrospect,

I would not order electric start on either one as they start so well. This is not a model to use on dirt, it is for paved or concrete surfaces only and does a fantastic job of... more
