  4 Questions
Q: For clarity this is a push button start, BUT it is required to be plugged in to an outlet during the initial startup?
What size outlet?
It is ONLY during the starting correct? Following the start up it can be unplugged, correct?

by Jeremy from Ohio on December 05, 2015

A: Jeremy - you are correct. You plug the starter cord into any standard household outlet. Once the snow blower is started, you unplug the cord from the electric start module before using the snow blower.
by Robert, Product Expert
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: In the specs, it states that the 38742 is self-propelled. However, you just answered Carol's question but talking about the incorrect Toro (38473). So the real question is, "Is the Toro 38742 self-propelled or are the specs false advertisement?" Not trying to be witty, but I'd like the correct answer before purchasing.
by Dianah from Minnesota on October 07, 2015

A: Dianah - the Toro single stage snow blowers, including the model 38742, have what's called a "Power Propel System". This system keeps the auger paddles in constant contact with the pavement, and the auger paddles help pull the snow blower forward when they are engaged. So the wheels are not powered as they would be on a self-propelled lawn mower, but these snow blowers will "pull" themselves along when the auger paddles are engaged and spinning.
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 Toro 38742 continues to be a go-to option when it comes to single stage options. With a new, powerful 212cc Toro engine, you will have no issues dealing with moderate snowfall. The Toro 38742 easily throws snow an estimated 35 feet.

With a 21 clearing width, the Toro 38742 can handle up to 12.5 of snow on the intake height. Not interested in pulling a recoil start on a cold winter day? No worries. This unit comes equipped with a 120-volt electric start feature.

Fantastic Product/worked Flawlessly
All I can say about this machine is WOW. When it arrived, all I had to do was unfold the handle and tighten it, install the chute, put in the oil and gas and started it for a few minutes so it would be ready to go tackle the snow.

On Saturday (1/23) I woke up to about 16 inches of snow, at that time I didn't know how the machine would work. But after I started the snow blower it just cut through the snow like butter. I was amazed at how well it worked, and because of that, I was able to... more

"I live in Bowie, MD and from (1/22 - 1/24) we were hit with over (2) feet of snow. Prior to this, I found out there was a good certainty of getting a blizzard, so I decided to order a snow blower. Late morning on Tuesday (1/19), I placed an order with Snow Blowers Direct. I was pleasantly surprised when I received notification that the snow blower shipped the same day and I didn't even request expedited shipping. The snow blower arrived on Thursday (1/21) via FedEx. I can't thank Snow Blowers Direct enough for shipping out the machine so quickly."

My First Snow Blower, Bye Bye Shovel, My Back Thanks You
I am a rare story of someone that was fortunate enough to have ordered this before the late January 2016 snow storm hit. This entry level Toro Power Clear 721 E worked perfectly and arrived on time! We had a total accumulation of 18" and this Toro performed better than I expected.

It did so well that I went around to my neighbor's driveways and assisted them in clearing the snow. The limitation of this type I "think" is when you have a driveway that has been driven on and... more

So Far - So Good
Assembled well. Started first time ( electric and pull). Now - all we need is snow.
Last Toro blower only lasted 10 years. Hope to do better this time - as my Toro Mower lasted over 20.

Great, So Far
I was a little concerned that I bought too large of a snow blower. After the first Minnesota snow, I was glad to have this blower. We had a wet, heavy snow that would have repeatedly clogged my old blower. This Toro handled the snow without clogging. I was impressed.
Pros: Easy To Use, I'd Buy It Again, Exceeded Expectations, Durable

Amazing Service - Amazing Product
This buying experience and the product was near perfection. My only thought is that I should have possibly gotten the chute control, because it's a long reach to the chute. But everything else is top notch.

My last Toro lasted 25 years. And this one looks like it's a big improvement so I'm expecting even more.

Snowblowers Direct was amazing. After I ordered using Paypal, I decided I wanted it shipped to the distribution center for pickup instead of letting it sit outside while I was at... more

Nice
Bought this for my father who is 90 years old. He couldn't handle his old self-propelled blower. First snow storm was about 14 inches and he raved about how easy and how far the snow had flown out of the machine. Starts on first pull. Would recommend this for anyone. Machine was shipping in about 3 days, perfect.

Great Single Stage Snowblower
This is a great single stage snow thrower. I purchased the electric start option, which works great with no battery to charge, however I have also started it with the recoil start rope with one easy pull.

I also love the fact you do not have to add oil to the gas. I live along Lake Erie and we get our fair share of snow but for 99% of the snow fall this unit is fine. If you really get heavy snow, go for a two stage unit.

Excellant Quality
This snow blower is very powerful for its size and handles a 4-6 inch snow effortlessly. Starts easily, so easily in fact that for most people the electric start feature is unneeded. If you cant pull the recoil cord, you probably shouldn't be operating the snow blower!
