1128 OXE vs 1128 OHXE

i can't seem to find the difference between these 2 toro models, the only thing i see different is that one is 10lbs more?

also which is better the briggs or toro premium? in the store it looked like the toro engine had a gas tank twice as big, but they were designed a bit different so maybe it just looks that way

im still kinda stuck between this, and a 30in ariens sho, and a tracked honda lol. all the plastic on this toro is a bit offputting but i really like that joystick on it.

are there any issues with that aluminum auger gearbox without the shear pins? if i hit a solid piece of ice won't it just blow up?

I can't answer to all your queries but Toro offers a lifetime warranty on all its plastics on snow blowers and as for their auger gearbox it's what inside that counts and they claim the parts are all stronger than their competition.
They don't have shear bolts or pins but they do have grade 5 bolts for an unforeseen object stronger than ice.

Couldn't help but saying sense of humour a bit distorted and let's hope that never happens.

The OXE is the older model and wasn't CARB compliant.
The OHXE comes with heated hand grips and is CARB compliant. There is a difference in the tires but I think it's just a typo. The OXE is 16.7" and the OHXE is 16"

Everything else on the spec sheets was the same.

I just bought a 1128 OXE and love it. I just do not know how important the heated hand grips are. My hand usually do not get cold but every location and person could be different.

I like the joystick too, the best on the market, but all that plastic is a deal breaker for me. Lifetime warranty sounds great, but how long will it take to get a plastic part 5-10 years from now? Will Toro still be in business 10 years from now? My point is, metal is always repairable and renewable, and much stronger and more reliable than plastic. Metal can be easily weld repaired stonger than new. Repaired plastic is almost never as strong as new. For a $2k+ machine, it oughta be metal!

i was just trying to point out where i thought shear pins might be useful, accidents happen and it might be nice if their were pins to break. i think i read there are thousands of accidents a year related to snowblowers. the shear pins might apply if i hit a frozen newspaper too? but maybe it just goes threw the auger and most of that damage comes when it hits the impeller

i like the joystick, trigger steering, and i like the floating blade that toro that supposedly gets down to the blacktop like a 1 stage blower does. My dad was saying he thought that might also cause problems and it might ride up or something. The ariens im looking at comes with the polar briggs motor, besides being bigger, is that built any better?

on the toro i think u can pull both triggers and move it around easy when its turned off, can u do that on the ariens? i mean if your moving in a straight line that autoturn won't help much right

They can always be added later if someone wants them.

are both of those toro's new? if not ask if the plastic on the older one has a life time warranty, older ones only have a five year warranty but I don't know when toro changed that to a life time warranty. there are a couple threads here talking about the anti clog housing cracking and out of warranty

current machines

2-toro 521E-38052. 1-toro xl824pt 38086
