Comment:
I used my Toro, the winter of 2013. I did my own and 2 elderly neighbors driveways and front walks, almost on a daily basis. Just replaced the paddles/skid plate/spark plug and belt. I had worn the paddles to the warning holes. It started with 1 pull each time, even in sub-zero weather. Light enough, that I carried up onto my deck to clear the snow. The direction handle for the thrower chute I wish were closer to the handle, but my Toro 2 stroke did a great job. I'm hoping it will be a milder winter, but if not, my Toro is ready.

Comment:
Bought one 3 years ago. Had it in the shop 6 times in 2 weeks. Got a lemon. Returned it and bought the same one next season. This one is GREAT. Loved the features for the price. Love the electric start and the chute change controls near the top of the handle. It has gone through snow drifts 2 times the height of the intake chute. Slower, of course. Wet snow is more difficult, obviously, but that just means you have to get out to remove the snow more quickly after it falls and before it melts and refreezes.<br />Love it. Had it for 2 seasons now. No issues. Price? You get what you pay for.

Comment:
very minimal use first year (2-3 times) worked well. Second winter, worked first two snowfalls, then totally died on the third use. Frustrating seeing as proper maintenance was done on this machine, and it failed us when needed most. Would not recommend this product, and have to rank this as the worst product I've ever owned.
