This new Toro 221Q replaced a fifteen-year-old Toro 4.5hp CCR2000E that I sold in working order for $250.00. Apart from Toro's clever shoot adjustment system, an unsung feature is the self-adjusting scraper that is mounted behind the paddle. The scraper on this new 221Q easily outperforms the fixed scraper on my old CCR2000E and does a better job of scraping the snow off of smooth pavement surfaces and tracking straight on slopes. As for the other reviews: if the belt squeals or slips, then it is time to toolessly adjust the cable. The directions for belt adjustment are in your owner's manual. When putting your snowblower into storage, run it out of gas or you may gum up the carb and your blower will not start since your dealer likely started your blower after replacing the electric start.
Anyway, I'm pleased with the power and ease of use of Toro's 221Q.
Good job TORO!
Everyone on my blocks new best friend.
I"M GETTING THE HANG OF STARTING THIS MACHINE AS THE DIRECTIONS WERE NOT HELPFUL. I'VE FOUND THAT IT LIKES HALF-CHOKE IN MODERATE TEMPS AND FULL CHOKE IN VERY COLD TEMPS. THE TRICK IS NOT TO OVERPRIME. PRESS THE PRIMER GENTLY UNTIL YOU FEEL LESS AIR AND MORE FUEL IN THE BULB, THEN START IT. PRESSING THE PRIMER 2 TIMES WHEN THERE IS NO AIR IN THE PRIMING SYSTEM IS TOO MUCH. SORRY ABOUT THE CAPS.
After hastily wasting money($400) on a Sears(MURRAY) single stage machine several years back I decided to buy a quality machine. The Sears machine had auger issues from the start and I rarely got a full season out of it. Of course each time the machine was repaired the winter was over and my 30 day repair warranty was useless. The straw that broke the camel's back was this past Christmas storm that dropped over 20 inches of snow here on Long Island. Within 10 minutes the cable that was repaired last March came off and parts went flying. Six and one half hours of shoveling later and I was determined to buy a new 2-stage machine.
After much research, Honda, Toro and Ariens seemed to be the most respected brands. Honda was not an option because of the price. So it was between Toro and Ariens.Read more ›

Somewhat disappointed in Toro. While they probably have made advances in the chassis and blade design, it almost seems as if they are using engine technology from 20 years ago. Read morePublished on February 21, 2011 by H. Brown (NY, NY)

Thought Toro was such a great name.
