Toro Snowblower Manual
Every new Toro snowblower should come with a manual, but if for any reason another one is needed they are normally fairly readily available. Mauals can often be obtained from the main Toro website by simply identifying the make, model and number of the machine.
A manual is crucial for a number of reasons. It carries extensive safety equipment, gives detailed instructions on how to assemble the server if it is being bought from new, and has extensive diagrams showing how parts can be fitted.
A manual should be studied when the machine is first bought, but also kept close to hand as a reference source when needed. The manual will also give important information about how to store the snowblower when it is not being used especially during summer months.
Toro Snowblower Repair / Wont Start
Users of a snowblower will normally have a number of questions relating to its operation, and normally have some common problems that need addressing. The most important is often that the machine won’t start.
The most important thing is to check the basics first. These include oil, gas and any safety features that are included to make sure the machine cannot be started inadvertently.
Once basics have been looked at, if the problem still persists, then the owner should consult the manual for further advice, followed by looking through the various snowblower forums online where it is highly likely they will find similar problems posted and solved.
If these do not deal with the problem, then it is advisable to contact a Toro dealership, especially if the machine is still under warranty.
Toro Electric Start Snowblower

There are some electric snowblowers that have a self charging battery, which can run for several hours once charged. These are becoming more popular and are likely to increase in availability and market share in the coming months and years
