August 19, 2015 -Toro is forging the next evolution in snow removal with the new SnowMaster snowblower. This first-of-its-kind snowblower defies definition, combining the best features of snow-removing technology into one easy-to-use, timesaving machine. It’s faster, easier to maneuver, and more efficient, saving up to 30 percent* of the time spent clearing what Mother Nature dishes out.
The SnowMaster powers through deep, heavy snow with ease, thanks to its in-line two-stage auger technology. The steel rotor on the SnowMaster has a helical design that breaks up the snow, collects it to the center, and throws it up to 40 feet out of the way**. The rotor also spins 10 times faster than typical two-stage rotors, and the tall auger opening increases snow capacity by 25 percent to move more than a ton of snow per minute*. A larger intake opening also helps to reduce clogging.
For handling ease, Toro’s proven Personal Pace self-propel system, commonly used on Toro walk power mowers, automatically adjusts to walking speed up to 3.5 mph. With Toro’s Personal Pace technology, the new SnowMaster delivers up to 50-percent-faster ground speed* to help get the job done quickly. Integrated automatic steering makes turning nearly effortless, while the Quick Stick chute control makes changing the chute direction and angle as easy as using a joystick. A compression-loaded scraper bar hugs the ground, clearing down to the pavement better than a comparable two-stage snowblower*. The result is a clear, clean driveway in less time with less effort.
Toro SnowMaster snowblowers are currently available at select Toro dealers, ToroDealer.com, and select The Home Depot stores. Three models are available, with prices starting at $649.
All three SnowMaster models are backed by a three-year limited warranty. For more information regarding the complete line of Toro snowblowers and other Toro products, contact Toro at (888) 384-9939 (U.S.) or (800) 544-5364 (Canada), or visit www.toro.com/snowmaster.
