Product Details

Toro 1800 Power Curve

**INCLUDES FREE PROFESSIONAL ASSEMBLY**

The 1800 Power Curve performs like a gas unit without the maintenance. Just plug in and throw snow up to 30'. The innovative Power Curve technology moves more snow in less time and virtually eliminates clogging and cleans all the way down to the pavement. It has the highest power to width ratio in its class* (*as of 2/2012).
It's ergonomic handle design allows for comfort and ease of use. The Zip Deflectorâ„¢ control lets you throw snow high, low or in-between and the positive-locking ratchet deflector adjusts in less than a second with just a touch of your hand. It has a Cord Lock System to prevent cord disconnects. Use the lift handle to easily transport the unit from patios, decks, and pathways.

    It's early days yet.

    I have only had my new snow thrower for a short time so have not had the opportunity to test it in a variety of conditions and snow depths yet. However, having said that, I have used it 3 times and was able to clear a double driveway of snow (up to 16 cm in one storm) without a problem. The snow was not wet snow. It blows the snow a good distance & and has good strength doing that. It is great that it's so light and can be easily lifted onto a deck. The directional chute works very well as does the easy start button. I am keeping my fingers crossed that it will be able to handle other snow conditions but so far I am very pleased. It has made clearing the driveway a far less daunting task. P.S. I do not use it at the end of the driveway where the snow plow has pushed dirty snow for fear of rocks. You must of course, have a paved driveway to use this machine.

    Product handles large snowfalls very well and the electric motor is quiet. Safety button to start propeller is difficult and spotty in its efficiency

    Excellent replacement snowblower

    Comments:

    Just got this product for Christmas and had the chance to use it this past week. We had Ice and then 2" of snow that drifted to 4" in some places. This unit worked very well it is lighter and easier to get up and running than my old gas snow blower. It moved the snow and the fine layer of Icy stuff underneath. I would recommend this product to anyone who is like me over 60 and wanting to have less stress on their joints.

    The product won't start

    I am now on my second Toro 1800 Power Curve snow blower. We are having a blizzard and it won't start. This happened to me before 2 years ago and the nearby dealer sent a replacement. It worked for 2 winters, now it doesn't. We can tell the power is on, but when the key is pressed in and the bar is held down nothing happens. Would Toro like to come and plow my house out of this 12 - 15" snowstorm?

    Quit unexpectedly at the worst time

    Comments:

    This week's major snowstorm is the first time I've needed to use the snowblower this season. I've had this unit for 6 years, always stored in a nice warm garage, and it's worked fine for up to 8 inches of light snow. Unfortunately, today it will not turn on. I've tried 2 different extension cords, and made sure the wall outlet in the garage is working. No idea at all why it won't turn on. Doesn't seem to be anything visibly different with the machine since the last time I used it. Alas, it's back to old school shoveling for me. Bummer.

    Would NEVER have another one of these

    Comments:

    I have owned two of the electric snowblowers by Toro. After two seasons they die. I have never had anything like this before. I took my first one in to the place where I purchased it and was told the motor was done for and I should just buy a new one. I have my current one for two years and it has stopped working. I am very upset with the Toro product. A very poor product, that's for sure.

    I had this Toro model for 2 years. In the 3rd, i used it once this year and afterward stored it in the garage. Tried to use it again today and it wouldn't work. I even bought a new 100 foot 14 gauge outdoor extension cord and it still wouldn't work.

    Has snow throwing power.

    Comments:

    Would prefer side button key be eliminated for easier use. Any slight release of handle to engage snow throwing paddles pops the button key. Frustrating.

    As a senior citizen, I find this 18" perfect for my sidewalks and driveway. Takes a little longer but that's because I'm older..HA!
