Toro Electric Snowblowers Pack Plenty of Power

This season, trade in that shovel for the convenience of an electric snowblower. With the #1 brand of electric snowblowers in the U.S., Toro offers two environmentally friendly options with power that will surprise you. The Toro Power Shovel and the 1800 Power Curve are easy to use and virtually maintenance free. Just plug them in, and you’re ready to take on whatever Mother Nature dishes out.

The new 1800 Power Curve is perfect for removing snow from small driveways, patios and sidewalks. This completely redesigned, single-stage snowblower pairs the features you need with the advantages of electric power. Thanks to Toro’s patented Power Curve technology, the 1800 Power Curve can throw up to 700 pounds of snow per minute, tossing it up to 30 feet out of the way. With the Power Curve system, a curved rotor with wide paddles clears snow down to the pavement.

Weighing only 25 pounds, this snowblower is simple to maneuver and compact enough for easy storage. Best of all, the 1800 Power Curve is packed with all the handy “extras” you need to get your task completed quickly. Toro's Zip Deflector allows you to change -- and then lock -- the angle of the thrown snow to match your needs, while the quick-turn chute lever makes adjusting the direction of snow fast and easy. An ergonomic handle and larger wheels keep you in control and comfortable. When you’re ready to take on the latest snowstorm, just plug in the 1800 Power Curve and go. Since it’s electric, there is no need for gas or oil.

This nimble, virtually maintenance-free machine retails for $319.99 (MSRP) and is covered by a two-year full warranty (see retailer for warranty details).

Save time – and your back – with the Power Shovel. This powerful machine does the work for you, tackling snow up to six inches deep on any hard surface. It’s the perfect tool for cleaning snow from patios, walkways and decks. The Power Shovel is also great for those lighter snowfalls when your snow removal service doesn’t cover the job, or for clearing areas where a larger snowblower won’t reach.

Weighing only 13 pounds, the Power Shovel is lightweight, maneuverable and easy to use. When not in use, it’s simple to store – even indoors.  It’s a great gift for any homeowner, from single-family dwellers to townhome owners.

This eco-friendly, electric shovel retails for $119.99 (MSRP) and is covered by a two-year full warranty (see retailer for warranty details).
