  2 Questions
Q: Is it regular gas or mix
by Orlando Vela from Illinois on November 20, 2015

A: Orlando - all of the gas-powered snow blowers we sell have 4-cycle engines. Gas goes in the fuel tank and oil goes in the crankcase - same as in your car. No mixing. You would use regular grade 87 octane gas with no more than a 10% ethanol content.
by Robert, Product Expert
Q: Is this Snow Blower "Self-Propelled?
by Carol from New York on October 10, 2014

A: Carol - a Toro 38473 is not self-propelled. This model does have an auger assisted drive system. The front auger paddles will help pull the snow blower forward when they are engaged. There would no "assistance" for backing up or going in reverse however.

The Quick Start 518 Zr!
I've used an older Toro Powerlite for 15+ years and decided it was time to update before it fell apart. Unboxing was super fast and this thing was humming along in no time.

It is easy to maneuver and lightweight which is what I was looking for. Add in bonus the zip deflector that locks into place and extra 2" width and I am happy as a clam. I look forward to many years of reliability, so bring on the snow!
Pros: Easy To Use, Quiet, Easy To Store

Much Better Than Expected!
Had a power lite CCR 3.25 for last 16 years! Still have but need some serious repair after 17 years. Okay, so what you ask? Toro Predissor machine from 15 plus years ago. Old machine weighs about 30 and is known through the neighborhood as pack man! Envy of neighbors for reliability, ease of use and versatility.

Big storm, small storm, it doesn't matter. Big storm cut a smaller path, small storm rip right through. Okay, fast forward 518 ZR little bit heavier only con. Way easier to... more

Solid Snow Blower
I've only used this blower twice so far this season, and this little blower handled about six inches of what I would call packing snow, no problem.

I just finished using it on about four inches of very wet heavy snow, again did a good job. I have an eighty foot driveway and I am very happy with the performance of the 518ZR.

Plowed 14 Inches
Have only used it once but the first time was to plow about 150 feet of sidewalk with 14 inches of new snow. Not heavy wet snow and not soft powdery snow but average density snow.

I had to back off a few times to keep it from bogging down but considering that this machine is designed for only 12 inches of snow I think it did a real good job.

Great Snow Blower
Live on Long Island and we just had our first major snow storm 2 ft! I purchased this Toro in Oct. and could not wait to use it. It was able to handle the snow and snow drifts. Was not disappointed!

Better Than Expected
I'm 80 years old...woke up to 6 inches of wet snow... googled Toros... got this website... ordered the cheapest gas blower... great price... free shipping... Arrived the next day...10 minute assembly...added gas to the supplied oil...choked once..pulled the rope.

That sucker fired right up and I had a 30 x 16 drive... 80 feet on sidewalk and the drive apron cleared down to the pavement in a little over an hour... great machine with lots of torque.

Missing A Part
The snow blower is great for what it is intended to do. BUT it was shipped without a key part, the scraper, so it didn't clear at all. Of course the first time I tried it was when there was snow, so the repair shops are really busy. I had to shovel three times before I got the blower back in working order. Not a good experience with on-line ordering.

Price was the same, so if I had it to do again, I would buy it somewhere that I could go back to and get some service. I actually called... more
