Toro has added new features to its Power Clear line of snowblowers that might interest snow contractors seeking way to increase efficiency with less labor for sidewalk work.
According to the manufacturer, in comparison to the older models, the new Toro Power Clear snowblowers have a Power Propel Self-Propel System, which reduces overall operator effort. Its innovative pivoting scraper keeps the rotor in constant contact with the ground, which allows the machine to self-propel through the snow.
Another new feature of note for snow professionals is Toro's Quick Shoot Control System, which allows users to change the chute direction easily without slowing down. Users simply squeeze the trigger and slide the grip on the snowblower to change the direction on the chute.
Toro designed the single-stage snowblowers, which are considerably faster to operate when compared with two-stage units, for professional contractors, giving them the ability with Toro’s powerful 252cc 4-cycle OHV engines to throw snow up to 40 feet.
The Power Clear single-stage snowblower lineup includes the following professional models:
- 21-inch Power Clear 721: These models feature a 212cc 4-cycle OHV engine, and is available in standard models with or without electric start, commercial upgrade with extended life paddles, and quick shoot on the QZE model.
- 21-inch Power Clear 821 QZE: Customers can rely on the 21-inch Power Clear 821 QZE to make quick work of winter’s worst conditions. Additionally, customers can place snow exactly where they want it with the incorporation of a quick shoot trigger.
