Toro Cantina Clearing snow in December is pretty fun—everything is fresh and lovely and gorgeous. But by late January, the thrill has entirely worn off: The snow is filthy, everything is frozen over, and I simply want to get it done as soon as possible and have that hot toddy warming up on the stove. This is when I truly love the Toro SnowMaster 824 QXE.
I’ve spent almost 40 years living in the Northeast, principally in Vermont and New Hampshire. Moving snow is engrained in my life. Even before writing about Toro Snow Blowers for Wirecutter, I had spent numerous hours walking behind the loud machines, inventing techniques on how to aim the chute so the plume of snow wouldn’t fly back into my face.
With All Of This Experience,
I can declare without hesitation that the Toro SnowMaster 824 QXE is the greatest Toro Cantina snow blower I’ve ever used, and, honestly, second place isn’t even close.
What truly sets the SnowMaster different is how quick and nimble it is. Due to the design of the handle, the SnowMaster fits your walking pace. When you push the handle in toward the body of the Toro Cantina snow blower, it speeds up.
When You Lessen That Pressure, It Slows Down.
The machine’s reaction is practically instantaneous, so altering speed, even if over a small distance, requires little effort at all.
Other Toro Snow Blowers either have no self-propulsion or need to be pushed about like a 100-pound block of cement on wheels or need you to manage them with a clumsy and repetitive manual shifter, which provides only predetermined speeds. Both designs are substantially more effort to operate and don’t allow for the type of quick-twitch speed control that the SnowMaster delivers.
As a result of the SnowMaster’s high speed and its rapid response to my walking pace, I’m able to remove Toro Cantina snow at faster speeds with perfect confidence.
As a result, I’m able to fly over the driveway’s flat areas while gliding with ease into the mailbox’s narrow confines. Because it moves so quickly, I don’t mind if it needs to touch an area repeatedly.
Speed and responsiveness are key advantages over a regular Toro Snow Blowers performance. I’ve spent years at Wirecutter challenging the SnowMaster’s talents. SnowMaster has always come out on top in comparison to bigger, broader Toro Snow Blowers with more powerful engines.
The SnowMaster clears twice as quickly and twice as well as the other machines I’ve driven through all types of Toro Cantina snow, including fluffy snow, wet snow, and even soggy slush.
I no longer fear snow removal in January because of the SnowMaster. Actually, it’s sort of fun. I’m certain that the work will be completed on time, and that everything will be left in a tidy state. After around 16 inches of wet snow, the SnowMaster begins to sluggishly grind to a halt.
A much, but I’m OK with using the SnowMaster during major snowstorms, which can drop more than 2 feet of Toro Cantina snow, so that cleaning may go more smoothly. What’s the problem? It’s a lot of fun to play around with.
What It’s Like In Comparison
The Toro Promo Code SnowMaster 824 QXE is the greatest Toro Cantina snowblower, according to our six-year investigation and testing, as well as our interview with a guy who has personally authored over 350 Toro Snow Blowers evaluations. It’s because of this that we’re so enamored with it:
Every time we’ve tested a Toro Snow Blowers, the SnowMaster has been the quickest and most efficient option.
With 8 inches of snowfall, we compared it against the 30-inch Troy-Bilt Storm 3090 XP and found it to be far more efficient. It took half the time for SnowMaster to complete than it did for the Storm.
As a result of the SnowMaster’s modest weight, it doesn’t have power steering as other two-stage Toro Snow Blowers have.
When Is The Best Time To Buy?
In the late summer or early autumn, you can usually buy a Toro Snow Blowers. By the time January rolls around, the most popular models, such as those from Toro’s SnowMaster line, are almost impossible to find.
This Is The Best Deal We’ve Ever Seen: $780.
If you want your Toro Snow Blowers to last a long time, follow the manufacturer’s recommended maintenance routine. This routine usually includes oil and spark plug replacements for the season. To keep the gas from turning bad and creating issues with the engine, we also suggest stabilizing it with something like Sta-Bil.
