  2 Questions
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: 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.

The Quick Start 518 Zr!
I've used an older Toro Powerlite for 15+ years and decided it was time to update before it fell apart. Unboxing was super fast and this thing was humming along in no time.

It is easy to maneuver and lightweight which is what I was looking for. Add in bonus the zip deflector that locks into place and extra 2" width and I am happy as a clam. I look forward to many years of reliability, so bring on the snow!
Pros: Easy To Use, Quiet, Easy To Store

Plowed 14 Inches
Have only used it once but the first time was to plow about 150 feet of sidewalk with 14 inches of new snow. Not heavy wet snow and not soft powdery snow but average density snow.

I had to back off a few times to keep it from bogging down but considering that this machine is designed for only 12 inches of snow I think it did a real good job.
Pros: Easy To Use, High Quality, Light Weight, Easy To Store

Very Pleased
Bought as a gift for my son's new home. My daughter tried it (first time using snow blower), and it worked well. It took her a little while to get the hang of it, but with a corner lot, it saves them back aches!

Easy To Use And Strong Little Bugger....
Of course once I bought this blower, it has only snowed once but it was a good 6-8 inches and this little blower easy handled it. It can really blow it a good distance too. Like most blowers, it does not pick up snow that was packed down by a car tire (but neither does a snow shovel).

Really like the light weight as it is easy to maneuver around and lift up/down steps and curbs when needed. Don't need the electric start. Starts in one to two pulls. Overall very happy....
Pros: Easy To Use, High Quality, Light Weight, Price

Did A Great Job!
The 518 ZR did a great job. We only had around 3 inches of snow, but it was wet. I couldn't believe how it threw the snow. I had to be careful in putting the chute down so that the snow didn't go too far. Nice and light weight. Because I had to drag it through the snow covered grass to get to the driveway, I could pull it fairly well (I am losing strength). Lift up the wheels a bit and the snowblower took me with it--self-propelled.
Pros: Easy To Use, Light Weight, Features

A Champ!
It has worked extremely well since receiving (weeks). Had a few 8" snowfalls it clears like a champ. Can almost throw too far. Only problem is that the nut holding the chute vibrated off after a couple of uses. Replaced and added some superglue, No problems.
Pros: I'd Buy It Again, Quiet, Fast
Cons: Heavy

Much Better Than Expected!
Had a power lite CCR 3.25 for last 16 years! Still have but need some serious repair after 17 years. Okay, so what you ask? Toro Predissor machine from 15 plus years ago. Old machine weighs about 30 and is known through the neighborhood as pack man! Envy of neighbors for reliability, ease of use and versatility.

Big storm, small storm, it doesn't matter. Big storm cut a smaller path, small storm rip right through. Okay, fast forward 518 ZR little bit heavier only con. Way easier to... more
