Product Discontinued
Expert Review
Snow blowers can be hard to maneuver for many people but the Single-Stage Toro Power Clear 518 ZE is the exception—the folks at Toro made sure of that! It's a great choice for the small mid-size property owner. It's feather-light at roughly 60 lbs., making it extremely easy to maneuver. But don't let the 518 ZE's size and weight fool you, it's made of quality components and has a very strong frame built to take years of use and abuse. Powering this unit is a modest 99cc OHV engine that packs a punch. The Power Clear's non-abrasive rubber paddles designed with Power Curve Technology virtually eliminates clogging! The electric start is just plain convenient, and the manually operated chute/deflector is easy to adjust. All-in-all the 518 ZE (18") 99cc 4-Cycle Single-Stage Snow Blower is the perfect residential blower with everything you need to keep your pavement clear this winter (without clearing out your wallet).
