There are videos on toros website that help. Checking the oil, you seat the dipstick , but don't lock in. Starts and runs good, but haven't blown any snow yet. Nice machine!

We had it delivered & assembly was pretty straightforward. Unfortunately, I over-primed it & flooded the engine the first time I tried to use it. After watching a YouTube video, I finally got it running properly and it cleared 3-4 inches of wet, heavy, spring snow very well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Toro for us Had to buy a new snowblower for our new place. Bought this back in October and got to use it in mid-December. It is a total workhorse! The joystick chute control is something that all blowers should have, especially the main line brands. It chopped up the ice at our apron no problem and after getting 42" of snow, it cleaned the driveway very efficiently with no issues. It started with barely a full pull each time and we have had 0 issues with it so far. You can't go wrong with the Toro brand.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great machine, but... Great machine, so easy to handle. But the lowest speed is a bit too fast as it can't take in the full auger height of snow at that speed so it's move 2 ft, wait 2 seconds, repeat.

what type of gas is needed

what type of gas is needed
Asked by: Nicholas
any Regular gas will work fine, but with issues I have noticed over the years, I would recommend the ethanol-free gas if you can find it. It should resolve any "over-the-season" issues you would otherwise experience with the ethanol gumming up lines/carb, etc. Do NOT use Diesel or oil/gas premix fuel for 2-stroke engines...

Too much oil...

After putting it together I checked the oil level. it is so transparent (as brand new oil) that it is almost impossible to tell if there was oil and what the level was. I added 3/4 of a 5W30 winter oil from toro (20Oz bottle). it was smoking a little the first time. Toro should really put some type of sticker saying "pre filled"!!! Do I need to empty the oil or it is just fine?
Asked by: david
I would empty the oil and refill to the proper amount to be absolutely sure.

I recently purchased the toro 826 snowblower. The online ad did not specify if this snowblower had a rebuilt engine or a new engine. Please clarify.

Asked by: Neil53
This is a new snow blower. It is not refurbished. Thank you.
