  • Easier than using a shovel.

    Dec 26, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Cheaper and easier to use than a gas powered unit, works better than a shovel
    Cons: Only flips the snow. No wheels. Cord gets in way. Good up to 10" snow.

    Summary: When one thinks of ways to move snow, two ways dominate most ways of thinking: Snow blowing or shoveling. A gas powered "lawn mower for the snow" blower usually is a monsterous unit, that throws the snow out of your way. Good but not always practical. ... read more

  • Electricity + Snow =Fun! (sometimes)

    Oct 7, 2008 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Makes menial shoveling, sweeping, faster.
    Cons: Wind, power cord, small size all work to make the experience not fun.

    Summary: Well, after countless winters shoveling the pure white hell we here in Michigan call snow off my (reasonably) small driveway, I finally broke down and bought this delightful slice of heaven to help me out, on account that my kids aren't old enough to ... read more

  • Love It!

    Jan 7, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Fairly light weight Affordable Electric, no smelly fumes, gas cans to deal with
    Cons: Electric: but if you can vacuum without running over the cord, you can do this.

    Summary: After years of shoveling, I finally talked my husband into purchasing a snowblower for our driveway. While we were there, we also picked up this snowthrower to use on the deck. I'm sooooo glad we did, this little thrower is very handy to have around. If ... read more

    Pros: Inexpensive, really tosses the snow, all you honestly need for 70% of this country
    Cons: Maybe crushed ice and rocks are a problem, distance to outlet may be problem

    Summary: People, It's January 22nd of '05 and the Northeast just got stung with a 10-18 inch snowfall depending on where you are. I've done a lot of research on snow removal tools, and let me put a few things to rest. I bought the Toro power shovel about three ... read more

  • One of the most useless tools I've seen!

    Dec 27, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: NONE
    Cons: Doesn't work in high wet snow; flimsy blades; only pushes snow forward; broom is useless.

    Summary: I was recently given the Toro Power Shovel as a gift and I am sure that the giver had all good intentions, but this is one of the most useless tools I have ever owned. Needless to say, it has been returned to the store. There are two main problems ... read more

  • Toro Beats Hand Snow Shoveling Hands Down No Contest

    Jan 7, 2003 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Inexpensive and relatively efficient compact lightweight electric snow removal power tool for wet/dry snow.
    Cons: Watch out for foreign debris in snow path and being entangled in electrical extension cord.

    Summary: The Toro Power Shovel is a very compact lightweight electric powered snow removal power tool that can remove decent quantities of snow both dry and wet. One does have to make sure not to run over or tangle up the electrical extension cord while operating ... read more

    Pros: Outperforms what is written on box.
    Cons: Non yet.

    Summary: Just went out and bought one to use on roof. Been meaning to buy one for a few years, but always sold out. Roof is 34' wide x 28' (just on one side and at a low pitch level). I was very comprehensive that it would work, but let me tell you, it ... read more

    Pros: Excellent Labor Saving Product
    Cons: Ergonomic handle not available?

    Summary: Excellent product -- used the first time in an "8" snowfall with a slushy base and heavying as the day warmed. Actually had set aside the gas powered snow blower (tired of un-jamming the chute) .. and tried the product which had been sitting under-used ... read more

  • Keep your shovel

    Dec 9, 2002 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: No gas, no fuss, no mess
    Cons: Handles only very light snow

    Summary: I was given one of these. I should have given it back. Just kidding. I suspect that this blower might be ok for about an inch or two of snow. For anything beyond that, your better off using your shovel and some muscle. It's quicker and a much more ... read more

    Pros: Compact, lightweight, powerful
    Cons: Not very 'manly'

    Summary: We just had our first snowfall here in Toronto. I bought the Power Shovel because I have a small driveway and only 30' of sidewalk to clear. Toronto does not really get that much snow; just few times per season. Buying a full size snow blower does not ... read more

    Pros: Great for small tasks where the snow is 5" or less deep.
    Cons: Not good for wet heavy snow that's greater than 6" deep.

    Summary: We didn't want to spend a lot of money on a snow blower for a long and narrow driveway, so we purchased the Toro Power Shovel. Our driveway is 6' wide and 30' long. It was ok when we got out and used it when the snow was 5" or less deep. It saved us a ... read more

    Pros: Easy to use
    Cons: Plastic rotary blade

    Summary: I had my doubts about the Power Shovel when my wife bought it, but to my surprise it does a great job on moving snow up to 4-5 inches deep. Even deeper snow will move easily if you remove it in layers. I am disabled, so we needed something light weight ... read more

    Pros: It's an expensive door stop.
    Cons: Too heavy, too short and no power

    Pros: Great for light snow and always better than shoveling
    Cons: Can't handle heavy snow very well

    Summary: In a few inches of light snow the power shovel is unbeatable. At the bottom of your driveway where the snow plow has dumped the snow, the power shovel struggles. You can only do a couple inches at a time. Still easier than breaking your back trying to ... read more
