Designed to be .5 thick for maximum life. Depending on what kind of driveway you have, concrete, asphalt or gravel, the height can easily be adjusted to meet your needs. • Large 14 Serrated Auger - Extra-large auger is designed to chew through the tough, compact snow. • One-Hand Interlock - Convenient levers allow one-handed operation, freeing the other hand to shift speed or adjust chute without stopping the snowthrower.• Headlight Standard - See and be seen with an extra bright flood light. • Electric Start Standard - For hot starts on the coldest days, each Toro two-stage snowthrower comes equipped with both electric start and a recoil mitten grip start for added peace of mind.

Strong & Quality Snowblower
5 Star Review   Home Depot   

This is the first snowblower I've ever purchased. So, I can't really compare it to anything else. The power steering makes using this thing very easy. Turning is no problem at all with the clutches at your fingertips. It went through snow very easily. Only on one occasion did it clog. It always started on the first pull or when I would use the electric start, it fired right up. I've only used it for one winter (2012-2013) but I expect many many more years of reliable snow removal from this Toro.

Mean machine!
5 Star Review   By Shane on Home Depot - Apr 2, 2013   

I bought this unit to replace my 10+ year old John Deere and love this snow blower. It has plenty of power runs on first pull. It does have electric start but not needed. Pulls very easy. The first use I got of this was the blizzard of 2013 in Iowa. I had about 6' high pile of snow from the city plow in the parking of my driveway and the rest was drifted at least 3' thick all wet very heavy snow. This blower moved all of it with no effort. My old Deere would have never stood a chance against this snow fall. I love my Toro and it was recommended to me by a close friend who is the manager of a John Deere dealership and said Toro is a better built heavy duty unit. He even sent me to a competitor to get it just because he knew the quality of Toro snow blowers. I would recommend this Snow blower to any one looking for a high quality well built product. It is commercial grade quality and it feels like it when you use it.

performed exceedingly well to clear 2.5 feet
5 Star Review   Home Depot   

we got a full, heavy 30inches in the "blizzard of 2013" we live on a 200 yard driveway, with a climb of 60 feet. It took two full days, but this machine threw it all, never clogging or getting stuck. It is heavy and powerful, so a bit unwieldily, but i was very pleased that the deep tread had good traction even on the steep hill. The engine easily starts, though the manual start takes some strength. The electric start is painless. The light was bright. Using a machine this big is on a steep hill can't be 'easy" but it was very effective and i am very satisfied.

Great machine, good value
5 Star Review   By JoeS on Home Depot - Dec 12, 2012   

This is my first snow thrower, and after recently receiving the largest snowfall in Minnesota in two years, I finally had a chance to use it. I was out of town when the storm hit and returned late at night to find 12 inches of wet, heavy snow on my driveway. To top it off, the plow had left over two feet of compacted ice at the end of the driveway. This was a good opportunity to put the machine to the test. Starting -- The temp was about 10F. I turned on the choke, hit the primer button three times, pulled the starter cord and it fired right up. Very nice. The machine comes with an electric starter, but I was too tired to search for an extension cord. Power -- My driveway has a steep incline. The machine had more than enough power to propel itself up the hill and throw snow a long distance. The spec says something like 50 ft, sounds about right. I was impressed. Steering -- The machine features two "clutches" on each handle to disengage a wheel from the power-train for steering. This was one of the features that attracted me to the Toro versus other brands. It took a bit of getting used to, but the ability to turn the machine on a dime in both directions with almost no effort was big enough reward to figure it out. Plastic parts -- This was one of the "drawbacks" of the Toro that caused me hesitation when choosing a snow thrower. Most folks seem to think that all metal is necessary. But watching the Toro demo on their website, where they put the machine in extreme whether conditions and then bang on the plastic parts with hammers, convinced me to go for it. I think it's fine. The stuff at the end of the driveway was compacted ice -- 2ft of it. I could hear the ice slamming and slapping the plastic but noticed no problems. Tires -- My driveway is a steep uphill clime and long -- nearly 200 ft. Think of the steepest driveway you've seen and imagine one a little less steep, that's probably mine. Recently I had picked up some chains for the tires but not yet put them on. I was tired and cold when I got home and decided to give it a shot without the chains. No problems. The tires didn't slip once. End-of-the-driveway debris -- It would've taken me two hours with a scoop shovel and ice scraper to bust up and move the end-of-the-driveway mess from the plow. Instead, I put the machine in low speed and its auger chewed through the pile. I had to exert some upward force on the handles to keep it from just going over the top. But once the machine dug in, there wasn't much for me to do but wait. Chute control -- I was skeptical of the "Quickstick" control. I thought a crank was all that's needed. But being able to turn the chute fast with the lever is very handy, especially since the machine can turn so quickly with the clutch levers. Light -- As I said, I returned home late and it was dark. The light on the Toro is plenty bright and off to the side on one of the handlebars. It casts a huge beam and wasn't much obstructed by the blower's motor or chute. Overall I would definitely recommend the Toro 926 OXE. Although relatively expensive, I think it's still a good value.
