Winter's biggest snowfalls are no match for the self-propelled Power Max® 824 OE Snow Blower. With a 252cc Toro Premium 4-cycle OHV engine leading the charge, you'll muscle through the toughest snow and ice Mother Nature has to offer. And you'll be back inside for dinner before your neighbors, too, thanks to a 24-inch-wide clearing width and 20 inch intake height that make quick work of even the deepest snow.

The exclusive Anti-Clogging System monitors snow intake to reduce clogging and maximize clearing efficiency.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Broke Bought this item Nov 11/18. Used second time today and the "NO SHEAR PINS" broke on one side. I guess heavy snow is to much? Model is advertised as no shear pins but they are there. Two brass looking auger bolts that hold auger to shaft to rotate(A SHEAR PIN !) SO mine snapped and is now embedded in the shaft. I wouldn't recommend this to my worst enemy, pay 1300 bucks and you get to use it twice!!!!!!!!! Its going back to the store for the 90 day return policy or a dispute with the credit card company will look after this. 20 year old Model from another mfg I just gave to my son still runs better then this broken pile of Cr$$p. Thanks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Survived Snowmageddon 2020 in Newfoundland So I bought this snowblower last January after doing some extensive research and for the price point, this thing delivers. - Starts on 1st pull, every time - Easy to use - Just blasted thru 93cm of snow that we received - Tosses snow like Uncle Phil tosses Jazz out of the house Best purchase to date.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Definitely Recommend!! Bought this on Jan 4 2022. You pay for what you get and this snowblower is definitely worth the money!!! I spent pretty much all day today (saturday) here in Edmonton blowing snow. We have had a ton of snow so far this year. 3 driveways and 2 yards, (front and back sidewalks) not a hiccup! This unit has so much blowing power that I didn't have to take half swaths. My father's 33 year old TORO blower is still running to this day, this is why I bought a TORO. I didn't really need the electric start, but they are hard to find this year due to covid and the amount of snow. However with the electric start it also came with beefier engine, glad I got this one!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Great Little Machine Bought this snowblower a month ago. Before this one I had a Yardworks 10.5hp for 15 years. Although this is a smaller engine, smaller width and height, it throws the snow further than my old one. Pros: - Engine outperforms the size of the machine (can handle the throwing) - First pull every time start - Good traction - Solid construction Cons: - Could have installed a light - The transmission does not move fast enough when walking from one place to the other. (It is a slow walk even with full throttle and on number 6) I would like to think that this will be the last machine I buy for at least 10 years.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Dissapointed so far as linkage won't install. So I am having a hard time installing the linkage. I have followed the instructions and watched you tube videos. It should be easy however, my linkage rod just doesn't fit. If I manage to get both ends of the rod connected the speed/gear lever won't budge. Called support and they were going to send a new part incase I was given the wrong part but they don't ship to Canada. Now I have to go to a dealer to explain my case. Not happy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So far so good! Quality unit with a simple auto-drive trans. Take care setting up controls so they match instructions and are tensioned properly. In particular make sure tires are both inflated to spec and that you chnge the oil after initial 2 hours of break-in, and you should enjoy this blower for years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Power Max 824 First good snow of the season. Started right up, threw heavy snow without bogging down. I liked being able to direct the snow easily with the “joystick “ I also liked the two reverse speeds for when I needed to get the job done. Overall I’m happy with the power and the features. A good buy.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Missing Parts…. HD not very helpful…. But Toro was Because of the heavy snowfall in central Canada this year, it was time to get a snowblower…. And a Toro Power Max was top of my list. All the local stores were sold out…. so I bought the unit online. Sadly it came missing the rod that engages the speed control. HD could not do anything other than offer a return (rest of unit was already assembled) or a $25 gift card (cheap given the cost of this unit) for my inconvenience and refer my Toro. Toro folk were great and sent out the parts asap. Now that the unit is assembled and functional, it works great… just in time for spring!

I noticed there are two holes on each end of the axle. It seems the manual requires pushing the wheel a little inward and put the pin in the second hole.  I wonder which hole should I pin the wheel?

Asked by: Gary
The tightest position. The second one preferred.

I purchased it this season and used it less than 10 times and it's always stored in the garage. While cleaning it recently I was surprised finding rust at the center of the black snow rotating disk which are not in contact of anything????!!

Asked by: YodaMH
I believe the black rotating disc you are referring to is the auger. Having rust already in less than 10 uses is disappointing news. I haven’t used my blower more than 10 times either but, I’m just wondering why your machine would accumulate rust already? Could salt have been a culprit to the corrosion of your machine? I will inspect my machine as well. Disturbing news no doubt.

I'm considering purchasing either the 824 or the 828 models and would like to know how these models handle windrows that the snowplows leave behind. As it states, they do not have shear pins but will stall when hitting a hard object. Windrows??

Asked by: Monique4723
Both models can easily handle windrows.

Someone asked a question on the no: of speeds it has & Toro's answer is it is self propelled. The majority of them have 6 forward & 2 reverse but nowhere in their specs. do they say it's self propelled. You need that, especially if you're a senior. Well?

Asked by: roxy 09
It has 6 forward, and 2 reverse speeds. It propels forward and in reverse, when the hand lever is engaged.

what is the horsepower of this unit

Asked by: johnny speed
The snowblower is 16.8 hp. Basically it's 15 cc per 1 hp. You would think Toro would know this about the engines that power their blowers!
