    This product had to be repaired after. 2years

    Comments:

    I purchased two of these machines And both of them would not start one month after the two year warranty was up. Both had to be taken to a mechanic for repair to work on carburetor. I had my previous one for over 30 years and it was very reliable.

    It's a little beast!

    By LuckyDave

    About Me

    Comments:

    I'm a new home owner in a northern state and quickly tapped out from the brutal effort of shoveling my driveway. A friend recommended the Toro Power Clear 518 ZR, it also has lots of good reviews and I just couldn't be happier with owning one! Being new house poor, I'm on a tight budget and this snowblower is very affordable. It was easy to assemble and looks to be made of good quality durable parts. It's a simple machine with not much to go wrong and has a good warranty if anything does. It's also easy to operate, always starts in 1-2 pulls and clears heavy snow at a depth it has no business even attempting. What used to take me an hour of heart attack inducing shoveling now only takes a 15 minute walk while this little beast does all the hard work. It's also small and light enough to store inside my one car garage where it waits for the next snowfall. If you're on the fence while shopping for smaller snowblowers... just get this one... it's really great!

    Toro power clear #2

    By DenMenace

    About Me

    Comments:

    I bought my first power clear 10 years ago. It was a 2 stoke. It served me well for all those years. I brought it in for service and asked about trading it for a 4 stroke model. I love my new 4stroke toro even more than the first one. I highly recommend toro powerclear.

    This little guy throws the snow!

    By timmmmmm

    from Blair, ne

    About Me

    Comments:

    I purchased this for the little snows. I have a larger 2 stage for the big ones. I like having a single stage for cleaning down to the concrete, especially since my driveway is all cracked up. These little guys are perfect for that. I was very impressed how far it throws the snow, a good 30ft! Just had 4 inches of heavy snow. Handled it with no issues. tossed it farther than I expected. So I'm very pleased. It required work on the 6 inches of sludge at the end of the driveway from the city plow. I would recommend a beefier/larger model if you have that issue. Very happy with this purchase.

    Power Clear® 518 ZR (38472)

    By Jackson238

    from Muskegon, MI, USA

    About Me

    Comments:

    I bought this snowblower to replace an old Toro S-200 2-cycle that was 30 years old and still running. This snow blower, even though its a 4-cycle has blown me away as far as power! This snowblower can really throw the snow. I even had it power right through wet heavy snow without it getting clogged. I have been able to clear some pretty deep snow without a problem. Easy to start, lightweight, folding handle, hardly any assemby and no more mixing gas and oil for me.

    Comments:

    I bought this product because the neighbor has had one for over three years and has not have any trouble with it. I was able to use his machine and like the way it moved snow and was easy to operate. I haven't had a chance to use my new Toro yet but I'm sure I will be happy with it because I have used one in the past.

    Comments:

    I bought this to use in small spaces around my house but found my wife loves it and is using it herself. She can start it and run it while I'm using my large snowblower. She keeps thanking me for buying it for her. Win, win!
