For the size and weight is great and the length of the machine is suitable for most of the ages to work by my other notes that increase the value of the product in my opinion is that the color is uniform to the machine and does not find the colors red and black because it gives the impression of small machine and then the public view reduces efficiency

This doesn't handle heavy or wet snow well, but with that being said it is still better than shoveling! It is lightweight and even with snow that is deep, you can rock this back and forth and it will eventually get it. I would recommend this, but if you live someplace that gets a lot of snow, you would be better getting something more heavy duty.

This is a simple, easy to use machine. It has electric start (plug-in extension cord to unit and push button). 4 stroke engine (dont add oil to gas) Fairly wide (18") and good throwing power. I actually dont use the electric start feature as it easily pull starts even when cold. It has a removable, reusable air filter. When one purchases new, they supply an 8oz bottle of 5W30 motor oil to put in. You must do this before using the unit or you will burn the engine out! It is easy to use, however not very manuverable, due to small wheels. It wants to skid and pull on icy paths or deep snow. Not great in snow more than 1 foot deep. The hood on the thrower boom easily pops off, and is difficult to replace. The angle changer is nice and stays put. It is easy on gas, I used it over 4 hrs w/o having to refuel! It's good unit if one does not have a lot of area to clear or doesnt get a lot of snow. Ive given this unit a workout this winter! If u use electric start, make sure u unplug the extension cord after unit starts! I dont recommend keeping plugged in while in use! Performance Does a good job of clearing snow, as long as its not deep! Handling Hard to handle in deep snow and icy conditions, wants to skid and pulls to one side. Small wheels, Toro could put bigger wheels on this unit and it would be a ten all the way! Durability Seems rugged, doesnt bog down too easy. Ease of Use Easy to start, maintain, not easy to manuver. Easy to add/change oil, get at spark plug, pull start handle, plugin starter. Has key so no one can use it w/o. Easy to clean. Engine Power Great in most conditions!

Had a Honda snow thrower that was constantly in need of work to keep it going. Finally got tired of it and when I looked for a replacement I found this one by Toro. Really happy that I did. I've changed the oil and cleaned the spark plug each season and haven't had any problems. Highly recommend this product.

Easy to use and does a good job Performance Does a good job and can be used easily by a small person. Durability Our first toro is still running like a top - we expect this one to as well. Engine Power Good enough to clear 12 inches easily.

I bought my husband this snow blower for his birthday, I thought the price was ok and expected it would work really well. My husband liked it and has had snow blowers in the past, so he knew how to use and maintain it. It worked well for about 5 uses and then wouldn't start. I don't blame the company though, things happen and stuff breaks. I was frustrated that it happened so quick, but it was fixable and we haven't had any problems with it since. Durability I chose poor because of my personal experience but I highly doubt that its a common problem that I had, and I wouldn't expect others to have the same malfunction. The snow blower seemed like good quality except for the one bloop that made it stop working briefly. I am mechanically challenged.. So I'm not sure what the problem was, only that it was easily fixed. Ease of Use I couldn't use it, but my husband had no trouble!

Toro snow blowers are pretty durable, and I think this one, which I bought quite recently, will definitely last a very long time. I have not had a Toro before but a couple of my neighbors do, and they have been using their Toro snowblowers for almost a decade. So, I am pretty satisfied with my purchase. The snowblower so far has worked very well in all the snows we have had so far this winter. There have not yet been any blizzards or crazy large snows so I do not know how this particular snow blower will work in heavy snow. It has definitely worked very well in the snows that we have had this year! It's also very easy to push, so that's another plus. i would definitely suggest everyone buy this one.

I purchased this snow blower shortly after I moved into a house that I was going to need to take care of the snow myself, I have a very small driveway and walkway and needed something just the right size. We haven't really had our "major" storm yet but for the seven inches we did get this snow blower did the job well, it didn't get bogged down when it was a bit icy and it was easy enough to use that my seven year old was able to use it to blow snow to make a snow fort for himself. And it was perfect for the walkway, not once did I have to shut it down to unclog it, I'm sure once we do get a big snow it will perform just as well.

Starts well, just make certain you don't use gas with ethanol in it, this engine needs a higher quality fuel. Clears heavy wet snow easily, and does a large driveway in less time than shoveling it. Handling It vibrates a little, but not badly. Durability Make sure you take care of it-have it checked and serviced on a regular basis and it will work well. Ease of Use Very easy to use Engine Power I've never had a problem with stalling in heavy snow

The Toro Power Clear 721 E has been the gold standard of single-stage gas snow blowers for some time now. It has a unique mix of speed, power, and an affordable price. For those in areas that get light to moderate snowfall totals, it’s the best choice on the market.

212cc Toro 4-cycle OHV Engine

Powering the PowerClear 721 E is a 212cc Toro 4-cycle OHV engine which runs quieter than their 2-cycle predecessors. This is one of the stronger engines found on single-stage gas snow blowers. It is also the same quality engine used in their lawnmowers.

Toro small engines are made overseas in China by a company named Loncin. They are known more for their motorcycle engines but have a nice reputation when it comes to other machines. They had some carburetor many years ago but have largely solved that problem.

 

8.5-inch Auger Clears Down to Surface

The auger on the Toro Power Clear 721 E is 8.5 inches in height and made of reinforced plastic. I’m not a huge fan of plastic augers, but this one feels sturdier than most. Toro does sell replacement paddles (Model #38261) for around $60 that you can install yourself.

The clearing ability is my favorite aspect of the blower. The marketing lingo is “Power Curve Technology” which is fancy talk for a curved rotor and an inverted funnel. Since its a single-stage with an auger that cuts to the pavement, it leaves a clean surface afterwards that won’t ice up later. This does preclude it from being used on gravel or lawn surfaces. It’s the best snowblower I’ve come across in terms of cleaning down to pavement.

How much snow can the Power Clear 721 E clear?

The Power Clear 721 E has a 21-inch width. This is about 12-14 trips up and down a standard 2-car driveway. 5-7 passes on a single car driveway.

With an intake height of 12.5 inches, eight inches is around the maximum depth it can handle in a single pass. It performs surprisingly well with wetter snow and slush (better than more expensive options). And despite its smaller size, it powers through that pile-up at the end of the driveway.

This snow blower has a plowing capacity of 1900 pounds per minute. While Toro states the maximum throwing distance is 35 feet, its closer to 30 feet in the most ideal conditions. Distance drops dramatically as snow becomes heavier. This should be more than enough for a standard 2-car driveway.

Auger-Propelled Drive System

Toro uses an auger assist propel function to help drive this model. When engaged, the rubber-tipped auger will make contact with the ground and guide it forward. This isn’t to be confused with true self-propelled functionality you can find on their SnowMaster 824 QXE. You’ll feel like you’re guiding the machine more than anything. It works well and about the best you can ask for in this price range.

No Remote Chute Controls

While the discharge chute turns smoothly, the controls for it sit on the chute. You’ll either have to move to the front to change the direction or awkwardly reach in from the back (if you’re tall enough). This is the biggest flaw of the Power Clear 721 E and I would love to see this re-designed in the future. The Toro Power Clear 721 QZR offered remote chute controls but was sadly discontinued.

The chute is made of a heavy-duty plastic and gives a 210° turning radius. You can adjust the angle up and down to help in how far you want to throw the snow. The contraption feels sturdy and has minimal vibration in use. It doesn’t have issues with clogging either.

Electric Start

This model offers an electric start option. The feature is helpful in extreme cold when you may have issues with the recoil start. Or if you’re like me and don’t want to throw your shoulder out trying to start it up. To use electric start, you plug in an extension cord into the outlet and press the red button above.

Easy Assembly and Storage

The Power Clear 721 E arrives almost completely assembled. You’ll only have to attach the discharge suit which requires a screwdriver and few minutes of your time. The handlebars fold down over the top of the machine and allow for a small footprint. At just 87 pounds, you might be able to store it on a shelf or in the rafters during the warmer months.

Warranty

Toro offers one of the best warranties on the market. A full two-year warranty is included with purchase. This includes Toro’s GTS (Guaranteed to Start) promise. If your snowblower doesn’t start within two pulls, Toro will fix the problem for free.

Conclusion

This is a great no-frills machine for those on a budget. It has a nice engine, clears extremely well, and comes in considerably cheaper than models in the same class. It is currently rated as one of the best single stage snowblowers of 2019.

The Toro Power Clear 721E is a fine choice for climates that receive light to moderate annual snow total. For small-to-medium sized driveways. And for use only on paved surfaces. For more money, you can get some added features from the Toro SnowMaster 724 QXE. But anything less than this will see a substantial drop-off in performance.

Toro’s Snow Blower Goes Cordless

Toro revealed at GIE that they’ve recently added a 21″ snow blower to their cordless mix. This Power Clear model runs on Toro’s 60V platform, and it joins an established line of cordless tools geared toward the homeowner who is ready to get away from gas power.

The Toro Perspective on Snow Blowing

“Our customers told us they wanted battery-powered products, and we listened. We’ve taken the cutting-edge battery technology engineered into our Flex-Force suite of products and put it in our Power Clear single-stage snow blower line. Now our customers can have the same legendary performance they’ve come to expect from Toro, with the option to choose a battery-powered model.”

-Christina Howell, marketing manager at Toro

Features

Toro 60V Snow Blower

Startability seems like a feature one would want from their snowblower. Rather than standing out in the cold trying to pull start your engine to life, wouldn’t it be easier to just hit a button to get it cranked up? Toro thought so. As per their announcement, “these machines are built to perform, starting the first time, every time, and requiring minimal maintenance with lithium-ion technology.”

 

The Toro 60V snow blower also clears snow quickly, particularly on concrete and asphalt surfaces. It can chuck 2″- 9″ snow piles up to 40′, and Toro claims that the Power Clear model’s efficient design throws snow tighter and farther than any of their competition.

Plus, the 60V Power Clear model shreds snow fast with its patented Power Edge auger. This is a curved, all-steel blade that, by virtue of its design, can cut through wet and hard-packed snow quickly while still reducing clogging.

Runtime & Safety

Another one of the big selling points surrounding the Toro Power Clear 60V snow blower is its runtime. With a 7.5Ah battery, Toro claims you can clear up to a 12-parked-car driveway on a charge. We don’t know exactly what that means in terms of actual runtime, but 12 cars worth of space on a charge sounds pretty solid.

Toro 60V Snow Blower

This model also includes panoramic LED lighting, which allows you to both see and be seen better. When you’ve finished blowing all the snow you care to, the Toro 60V snow blower’s handle and chute fold over for easy storage.

Pricing and Warranty Information

You can pick up the Toro 60V Power Clear e21 snow blower in a few different packages. Kitted with a 7.5Ah battery and a charger, this snow blower retails for $749. You can also opt for the larger kit that comes with two 6.0Ah batteries and a charger. That package is priced at $949. Finally, you can purchase the Toro 60V snow blower as a bare tool for $599. All of these options are available either directly from Toro or from Home Depot.


All of these options include Toro’s 2-year warranty on the tool and 3-year warranty on the battery.
