This Toro electric snow blower is belt driven with a two blade curved rotor, which gives the Power Curve its name.

This power curve system enables the rotors to cut through ice right down to the ground with little or no clogging.

As an electric snow thrower, the Toro Power Curve is virtually maintenance-free. No need to mess with gas and oil, just plug in and go.

Is it worth buying?

Users praise the Toro 1800 power Curve as a reliable, lightweight and user-friendly machine. People like the fact that it requires no maintenance and requires little storage space.

Another great advantage of the Power Curve is that it is quiet. It doesn’t make much more noise than a vacuum cleaner, which is not very much at all when you compare it to the noise from a gas powered machine.

On the downside, the Power Curve’s wheels are relatively lightweight and don’t provide much traction so backing up in areas you haven’t cleared can be a problem. Toro has increased the size of the wheels in the latest models. This has improved matters but they are still not especially robust.

Also, the chute direction can only be adjusted to the various ratchet points on the mechanism, so you can’t always direct the snow absolutely where you want it to go.

Overall, though, this is a very good buy amongst electric snow blowers and if that category of machine is what you need, you won’t go far wrong with a Toro Power Curve.

Under normal wear and tear, it comes with a two-year warranty.
