Further, a single stage is just too small.

I'm going to take it in for servicing to see if there is just something wrong with this unit and will report if I find anything that changes the review.

The owner's manual does not say that and instructs to set the choke to the right and then prime one or two times.

This is my first snow thrower. I'm 67 years old and until I developed a shoulder problen a couple years ago I was fit enough to shovel the snow we get here in Pa. Then last year we got more snow than we had in quite a few years but my neighbors were kind enough to clear my snow with their "BIG" snow blowers. I was thankful for it but was surprised at how their blowers were so tough to maneuver...several gears forward, reverse gear and very heavy machines. Anyhow, I started to feel guilty having them clearing my snow so I decided it was finally time for me to get one of my own. I did a lot of research and decided that for my size driveway and sidewalk the Toro Power Clear 221 QE was what was right for me. After clearing a couple of small (3-5 inches) dry snowfalls I was sure I made the right decision. Then, yesterday we had a wet 9-11 inch snow fall and am more convinced than ever that this is one great snow thrower. The Toro went through the wet snow with power to spare. Some of the area I cleared was even deeper and more compact where the snow plow had pushed snow up against my driveway entrance. Sure, I couldn't go directly through it but neither could my neighbors with their "big boys" but the Toro is so light and maneuverable compared to theirs that with a little back and forth action I was able to clear that snow quicker than they did. Those big blowers may be ok for long straight stretches but when it comes to maneuverability the Toro wins hands down. Based on my experience yesterday I have no doubt that this snow thrower can easily handle 10-12 inches or more of powdery snow without breaking a sweat. In addition this Toro will clear snow right down to the bare surface while my neighbor's don't quite do that.Read more ›

I got into a Toro 221Q with electric start and I'm very pleased with its performance. On 12/11/10, we received 20" of snow. The 221Q ripped through the snow and the Quick Shoot system for adjusting the shoot's direction on the fly was a breeze to use and greatly reduced the time and effort of blowing out my driveway because I didn't need to bend down to adjust the shoot angle. Moreover, adjusting the height that the shoot discharges at was also easy and useful for blowing snow over four foot high banks of snow. When the plow came by, the Toro had enough power to carefully slug through and blow compacted snow.

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.

I love this snowblower. Just got it in time to blast through 8" of new snow this morning. The quick chute feature on it is really convenient and well as the adjustments on the discharge chute. Very user friendly... easy to start and control.

Good job TORO!

Sincerely,

Everyone on my blocks new best friend.

EDIT 2/10/2013: STILL A BEAST! I LOVE THIS THING. TOO BAD THEY DISCONTINUED THE 2-STROKE BUT I BELEIVE THERE ARE STILL SOME OUT THERE. ALSO SINCE WE HAD NO SNOW LAST YEAR IT SAT FOR OVER A YEAR. AS I DRAINED THE FUEL OUT OF THE TANK AND ALSO DRAINED ALL THE FUEL FROM THE CARB FLOAT BOWL IT STARTED RIGHT UP WHEN I NEEDED IT. VERY SIMPLE TO DRAIN THE CARB AS TORO LEFT A NICE ACCESS WINDOW FOR THIS TASK. ONE MORE THING. WHEN STORING IT MAKE SURE YOU PULL THE STARTER CORD UNTIL YOU FEEL COMPRESSION TO ENSURE THE COMBUSTION CHAMBER IS AIR TIGHT.

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.
