Toro CCR 2450 GTS Snow Blower

Rating: 4 out of 5
  • Currently 4.0/5.0

This snow blower belongs to my dad. Now that he is older, he doesn't shovel much anymore, which is why he bought this snow blower. Sometimes after a particularly heavy snowfall, I will come over and run the snow blower for him, so I have plenty of experience using and operating it.

He paid a nice amount of money for it when it was new, and it is a nice looking snow blower. The main engine part is red and the steering handle, snow chute and bottom is a dark grey color. The snow blower is only a single stage unit, so it's not too bulky to move around. Once the gas/oil mix is poured into the engine, and choked up a bit, it only takes one pull to get this thing roaring to life. The engine sounds loud and powerful.

The path that it will clear is just less than two feet wide, and the thrower throws the snow more than 20 feet. If the snowfall has heavy, damp snow, the throwing distance decreases a bit but is still quite adequate. The thrower chute is adjustable and can be swiveled to throw the snow in any direction. Moving the snow blower forward through the snow is not too hard, but it takes a couple seconds for the auger blades to cut through the snow it is in contact with and move the blower forward.

Because this unit is a single stage snow blower, the blades aren't metal, and it doesn't clear all the way to the ground. There is usually a thin layer of snow left above the surface of the driveway, and this snow can freeze up and form a hard, slippery layer later on. Too avoid this happening, sometimes I have to go back over the driveway with a regular shovel, and that is the only real drawback.
