BLOOMINGTON, Minn. (October 25, 2010) – If you’ve been thinking about throwing your old snow shovel away for good, one look at the newest Toro® snowblowers will convince you now is the time! Toro’s 2011 lineup offers something for every homeowner. Whether you’re looking for the convenience of an electric snowblower, an easy-to-handle single-stage machine or an all-conquering two-stage model, you’re sure to find a Toro that can handle even the biggest winter storm.
The new 1800 Power Curve electric snowblower is both convenient and powerful. This completely redesigned, single-stage model offers an environmentally friendly choice, without sacrificing power or performance. With an 18-inch clearing width and 15-amp motor, this machine can throw up to 700 pounds of snow per minute, tossing it up to 30 feet out of the way. Thanks to Toro’s patented Power Curve technology, the 1800 Power Curve clears the snow down to the pavement. This feature also helps propel the snowblower forward, making it easier to get the job done.
Weighing in at just 25 pounds, the 1800 Power Curve is simple to maneuver and compact enough for easy storage. Best of all, it’s packed with new, innovative features to get the task completed quickly. Change the zip deflector and lock the throwing angle to match your needs. A quick chute lever makes adjusting the direction you’re throwing snow easy and fast. An ergonomic handle and larger wheels keep you in control and comfortable.
This nimble, virtually maintenance-free machine retails for $299.99 (MSRP) and is covered by a two-year full warranty.*
All-New Power Max 726 OE – Does Mother Nature throw hefty snowfalls your way? Battle back with the new two-stage Power Max 726 OXE. Designed for large driveways, the 726 OXE features a wide, 26-inch clearing width that powers through nearly 1,900 pounds of snow per minute, throwing it up to 45-feet away. Handling high drifts and hard compact snow is easy, thanks to breakthrough design features that maximize snow intake and minimize clogging.
Toro two-stage snowblowers receive high marks from homeowners because of their easy handling, according to Toro Associate Marketing Manager Tanner Erickson. “Toro’s Quick Stick® chute control featured on the 726 OXE — and all Toro Power Max models — allows operators to easily adjust the chute rotation and deflection angle with one simple control. It’s as easy as using a joystick on a video game,” explains Erickson. “Operators simply press on the locking mechanism and move the chute into position.”
The 726 OXE is equipped with a powerful and dependable 205cc Briggs & Stratton® OHV 4-cycle engine. The electric start feature means you’re off and running at the touch of a button. The Power Max 726 OE is priced at $1099.95 (MSRP) and is backed by Toro’s three-year limited warranty.
These two new machines build on Toro’s impressive heritage of more than 50 years of making overachieving, durable snowblowers. Look for the new 1800 Power Curve, the new Power Max 726 OXE and other models from Toro’s full line of snowblowers at your local authorized Toro dealer.
