  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 Robert, 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 Robert, 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 Robert, 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 Robert, 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

A Must Have
I recently moved from MN to Colorado Springs. In February we received over a foot of snow in a particular storm. It was wet heavy snow. I have a bad back & made it worse trying to shovel. I received my Toro snow blower about a week after the snow storm.

Because of the way my house is situated the sun had not melted any of it. I cleared a 20 X 30 driveway in less than 2 hours. It was a foot deep & almost slush because of the temp. I was amazed. I want it to snow so I can use... more

Honest Review
I am someone who believes you pay for what you get. I did not follow my own rule. I wanted a second snow blower that was electric in case I had problems with a spark plug /gas etc for my Ariens Snow Blower. I looked at reviews in thought I would try it. I live in Chicago, we get a fair amount of snow. Removing 5-6 inches with a little ice was difficult. If you have 2 inches of snow, there's really no point of a blower, it will melt (my opinion).

The blower cuts off each time you release... more

Good Product
This product is good for 3 to 4 inches of snow. It does blow far enough. Does not work properly with heavy wet snow. Good for light work clearing pathway and clearing a path down to my car.
Pros: Light Weight, Easy To Use, Easy To Store
Cons: Unreliable

Failed Pessimism
My wife did the research on this unit and I have to say when I put it together I was pretty skeptical about it. When the first storm arrived, all doubts went away. We had 6 to 8 inches of fairly wet snow and the little guy plowed through it effortlessly. My wife was looking for a machine she could handle as I work out of the country. This one fits the bill!
Pros: Light Weight, Easy To Store, Exceeded Expectations, High Quality
Cons: None

Happy With My Purchase
I was in the market for a practical snow blower to keep at a vacation house. Weighing the pros and cons, I didn't want to keep a gas blower that sits mostly. Granted a gas powered engine will have more torque and push more snow, I just didn't want to mess with gas.

I'm using this in the Lake Tahoe area and this has been a banner snow year. I used the blower for the first time and was pleasantly surprised. I've used a gas blower and without question that will move more snow than this. BUT,... more

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

Nice, Light-weight Snow Blower
Nice light-weight snow blower for small to medium size jobs. I bought this to help clear paths and "dog patches" around the yard when I had knee surgery. The first snow after receipt of the SB was a 8" wet snow-fall -- a fairly tough job. I found the Toro 1800 made the job MUCH easier than using a shovel, especially with two bum knees, and that it was able to handle the deep wet snow.

This is not competitive (from a performance standpoint) with its gas-powered cousins,... more

Just What I Needed.
I had previously had an electric snow thrower, as I really don't need more gasoline engines to deal with. I upgraded to this one, after a friend recommended it. Came in three days! Was super easy to assemble. I love the luxury of just plugging it in in the garage and just heading down my driveway with it.

So quick and easy. Takes me 5 minutes to clear my 100 foot driveway, Takes it right down to the pavement. When I'm down, I just dust off the snow and back it in to a corner of the garage,... more

Great Snow Blower
I live in Maine. We have an unpaved driveway. The first year I got this we had about ten feet of snow. In other words, I use the product beyond what it's rated for. It worked great the first year. Second year it died.

I had bought the extra 2 year warranty from PED. Called them up. They didn't know what I was talking about and told me to bring it to the dealer. It comes with its own two year warranty, so Toro replaced it, no problem.

This will be my third year on the replacement. It... more

It Did The Job!
Didn't have a lot of use for it this winter with hardly any snow, but I did get to use it once. Had a 3' drift right outside of my door and I did get the job done with this light weight blower. My only worry, is the plastic blade, hoping it doesn't break if I hit something like a piece of ice.

And the bar that you have to hold, well, I kept losing my hold on it and would have to restart it. Also, it came unplugged so I will have to figure out some way to not pull the plug out. All in... 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
