Toro® Power Max® HD: Mother Nature Meets Her Match

Send the daunting drifts of snow back to where they came from with the new series of Toro® Power Max® Heavy Duty (HD) two-stage snowblowers. The new Power Max HD lineup offers four models to consider when looking to arm yourself against the elements with a commercial-grade two-stage snowblower.  

Toro Snow Blower

These machines utilize a two-step throwing process for efficient snow removal: first, the auger chews up the snow and ice that’s accumulated, then the impeller catapults the snow out of the chute. This process allows for operators to throw snow up to 45 feet and clear snow depths of up to 21.5 inches, making Toro two-stage snowblowers the tool of choice when winter weather hits.

Toro engineers have integrated several industry-leading features that make the new Power Max HD lineup ready to work and built to last, including…

  • Anti-Clogging System - This patented system devours the deepest drifts and prevents clogging by cycling large chunks of snow and ice through the auger until they’re ready to throw.
  • Quick Stick® Technology - Ready, aim, and throw your snow wherever you choose with Toro’s Quick Stick chute control. Easily direct the placement of snow by depressing the lock control and moving the chute into position, all with one hand.
  • Sub Zero Chute - Specially designed cold-weather material is durable in temperatures as low as -104° F and backed by a lifetime guarantee. Rust-free construction ensures no binding and prevents snow and ice from sticking.
  • Commercial-Grade Auger Gear Box - The gears are what matter – not the gearbox housing.  These oversized gears are made from special material built so tough they don’t need shear pins to protect them (unlike competitive two-stage snowblowers).

Power Max HD models range from the Power Max HD 928 OE at $1,399 (MSRP) to the Power Max HD 1128 OXE for $2,099 (MSRP). All Toro two-stage snowblowers come with a three-year limited warranty (see retailer for warranty details).
