Rated 5 out of 5 by from POWER Moved into a new house with a huge driveway and inherited an old Honda HS80 that was a very capable machine, but got bogged down in any wet snow, which here in Newfoundland can be frequent. My thinking was, the very time I most need a snowblower (wet, HEAVY snow) it's completely useless to me to the point it's easier/faster to just shovel than use it? So I was specifically looking at this for the anti-clogging feature and raw power. I was fortunate enough to receive this a day before what turned out to be the worst snowstorm of the season this year, in terms of the multiple challenges it presented. I have a gravel driveway, half of it with a 20 degree grade to it. The ground had thawed and had no frozen layer over it. This storm brought nearly 2 feet of wet heavy snow on top of that. I was skeptical this wouldn't get clogged. However, it blasted through it with ease. Impressive! So the huge price tag was justified after all! Until I began the turn-around at the bottom of the driveway, the tires had hardly any traction at all, I had to nearly throw my body horizontal with my arms and legs extended just to try to inch it forward. I did eventually get the driveway done but those tires had realized one of my fears that had had me looking at the ariens tracked model.. the the tires would be garbage on the steep part of my driveway. I'm still rating this a 5 however, because this isn't really designed for inclines like that, and that's no fault of the machine, I am going to shell out the $200+ to get chains and hope they make a difference, even with the struggle up the incline though, the power to push through the deep wet heavy stuff makes me confident in recommending this machine, when you need it most it will actually do what it was intended to do, which is throw any kind of snow VERY VERY impressively far.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product Just received and hoping to get a chance to use before spring. I was surprised that at this price point since being an electric start snow blower that the electrical cord would be included- but no it is not included according to Toro. So don’t waste time looking for the electrical cord or for any manuals, the manuals are on online. I will post about its performance after I use it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from More of a bust than a beast ! After reading many excellent reviews, I decided to purchase this Toro snow blower. Unfortunately, my experience has not been good. I've had the blower since January 4th. The LED light flickered from the very first, the chute would not remain in place where it was set, and today the auger cable snapped off after about 2 metres of use. None of these items are apparently covered by any warranty. Even if the machine is about 6 weeks old, with about 10 hours of use on it. Not sure if buying the blower at a Toro dealer would have helped with these repairs or not. Not very pleased with this particular Home Depot purchase for sure. The only positive that I can say is that the Toro blower did arrive in quick order. Only 3 days from order date.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great machine I have had both deep and wet snow falls and so far the Power Max HD 1428 has handled it all effortlessly and I'm yet to experience a plugged chute. The 420 cc Toro has proved that there is no replacement for displacement I have a large driveway and it makes short work of it and wet or dry it throws snow an incredible distance. I am very pleased with it and would without hesitation recommend it to anyone that has a large area to clear.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Machine The snowblower works amazing! We had 2ft of wet snow over night and this beast threw it like it was weightless. Easy to control and I’m a woman. Takes a bit to get used to holding the little handles to turn but after you’re used to it you don’t notice it anymore. Love the auger handle locks down so you can change direction of the shute while still moving. One thing to notice is our machine came in the box on a pallet but didn’t come with a manual or electric power cord for the electric start so we just use an extension cord

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Only had limited usage so far Throrws snow and wet snow well. However very difficult tokeep the auger drive and wheel drive controls down for extended period. Ie your arms judt get tired. This machine is also a little heavier thsn my llsst snowblower and it takes a little more effort to masnever. The other issue I have is with the shute control jkloysdtick. Although it is convenient to have both directuion and angle on tHe one control, it is clumsy to use in thst if you are trying to simply change the direction you also have to readjust angle which seems to want to repodition when you go to release Especially when you are trying tyo position direction st the limits of travel.

Don't know but this unit has rectangular bars connecting the handles to the machine not the round bars on other models so use caution. Maybe contact Toro. Good luck.
