  5 Questions
Q: Is this model suitable for a deck that is painted.
Will it scratch?

by Craig from Massachusetts on November 13, 2015

A: Craig - yes, the auger paddles on the Toro 38381 are going to come in contact with the surface of your deck, so it's possible that the paint on your deck could be scratched if you use this (or any electric snow blower) to clear the snow off your deck.
by Marissa, Product Expert
Q: Is assembly required?
by Tony Rube from New Jersey on January 25, 2015

A: Tony - there would be some minor assembly required on the Toro 38381. You would need to attach the discharge chute to the top of the snow blower housing, connect the chute rotation rod, and fold up and adjust the handle into the correct position.
by Marissa, Product Expert
Q: Is this usable on gravel and uneven walkway slabs
by Anonymous from Pennsylvania on November 19, 2011

A: Yes, it's usable, but I never recommend any electric or gas-powered single stage snow blowers for gravel surfaces. The auger paddles on these models engage the surface being cleared of snow, so you will throw not only the snow, but small rocks and stones from your driveway as well.
by Marissa, Product Expert
Q: How long a cord can be used? How deep is the snow that can be handeled by this blower?I am 79 yrs and want to do walkways and paths. Would this do the trick? nThanks
by Ann Valair from Massachusetts on August 13, 2011

A: Ann - you can use up to 150 feet of extension cord to operate the Toro 1800 Power Curve. If using 101 to 150 feet of extension cord, you would need to use a 12-gauge outdoor rated cord. If using 100 feet or less of extension cord, you can use a 14-gauge outdoor rated cord. The Toro 1800 Power curve will handle light, fluffy snowfall of up to about 10 inches. Figure on 5 or 6 inches max if the snow is wet and heavy.
by Marissa, Product Expert
Q: On "consumer Search", the TORO 1800 was recommended for "flat" surfaces. I have a sloped driveway - would that be a problem for this snowblower ?
by Allan Shapiro on July 03, 2011

A: It would not be a huge problem, it would depend on how sloped the surface was. If you have a larger driveway, it may be a problem just because this unit is electric. Just keep in mind one of the main reasons this is suggested for flat surfaces is because you are actually pushing this. The paddles give you a little help, but you are pushing for the most part.

Thanks,

Power Equipment Direct Recommended

The perfect tool for residential use, the Toro 1800 Electric Power Curve snow blower is small in scale, but mighty in removing snow from driveways and walkways. The 1800 is also great for managing your large decks and patios so small pets or weight can be taken away from the structure without damaging it. Deep-cutting blades and powerful 15 amp electric motor move up to 700 pounds of snow per minute and can launch snow up to 30 feet. All while the adjustable chute puts that snow right where... more

Poor Quality Control
I received this snow blower in November of 2015. The unit arrived missing the bolt to hold the handle together. There were also three screws loose at the bottom of the box. These are the screws to hold the case together, but the case was screwed together and not missing any screws. When I picked the snow blower up, I could hear another screw rattling around inside.

I got permission from Snow Blowers Direct to open the case. I removed the wayward screw and all other spots appeared to... more

Versatile For 20-25 Ft Driveways
We ordered the Toro 1800 in preparation of the epic storm Jonas that hit the DC metro area in January 2016. We didn't time it well so it arrived a week after due to most of the region (including deliveries) being shut down. When we received it, it helped to clear out the sidewalks that still had about 12" of snow (mixed with ice) with a little bit of effort - lesson learned, don't let snow sit for a week before attempting to clear it! :) Nonetheless, the Toro had enough power to help... more

Works Great
I live in Wisconsin and this electric snow blower works just fine in wet or dry snow. I did have gas power monster blowers but the fuel and weight of the machine I did not like. This electric blower is super light but will do the job and save your back.

Just Right
In Maryland we don't usually get a lot of snow at one time (although this year was an exception). The Toro does a really nice job and is easy to use. Great for almost all snows up to 6" - if it is heavy snow it struggles if it is deeper than that - it loves light snow and it clears right down to the pavement as long as there is no ice.
Pros: Light Weight, Easy To Store, Quiet
Cons: Sometimes You Wish You Had A Gas Model

Let It Snow
I am very concerned about our environment. I drive a hybrid car, I use a cordless electric mower and my most recent purchase was an electric snowblower. After doing extensive research I chose the Toro 1800 Power Curve snowblower.

With 15 amps of power and lots of torque this snowblower is just the answer for my needs. This was my first purchase with Snow Blowers Direct and I give them a 100% satisfaction rating! Courteous customer service and very fast shipping. I will certainly... more

"My wife ordered me a snowblower for my birthday. When she realized this was not the snowblower I really wanted, she called Marissa at Snow Blowers Direct for assistance. Thanks to Marissa, I received the snowblower I really wanted 2 days later. I was very very impressed."

Expectations Achieved
Don't know why I've waited until I was 55 to buy a snow blower, but this thing is awesome. I'm sure that it is a good size for many types of properties, but it is perfectly suited for town house properties.

Lightweight, low space footprint, minimal maintenance. I saw this same model at Home Depot for about $60 more than I paid. Reduced my shoveling time by around 70%. Nice job, Toro!

So Far So Good
I bought the Toro after the last snowstorm. Tired of straining my back and spending hours shoveling. I used it for the first time today and was pretty impressed. It quickly plowed through about 6-8 inches of snow making quick work of my driveway, walk path, and sidewalk.

I felt so good after I finished I went ahead and took care of my neighbors' sidewalk, walk paths, and driveways as well. I definitely recommend this electric model for those who do not have lots of storage space for the... more

Worth Every Penny!!!
I bought this snow blower after using an older model I borrowed during the huge snowstorm we had in January. The newer model is just as good and easy to use. I just used the new model for a 6 inch snow we received last night. It knocked out my driveway and walkway in about 20 minutes. It would have taken about 2 hours with a snow shovel.

The recent snow did tend to get clogged in the chute but I think that may be due to the snow being heavy and wet. Regardless, I would not trade this... more
