Toro Model Year 2018 .. Snowmaster 724QXE

I decided I will buy a Snowmaster 724QXE when the new builds become available. I very much appreciate everyones' guidance on this. When I looked at the 724QXE (model 36002) on the Toro Master Partsviewer, it shows a 2016, 2017, and 2018 model. I assume the 2018 model is what is being built now or soon to be built for sale starting late summer or fall, so I'd want one with a 2018 S/N 402082000 or higher. Does this sound right as I think this is the 3rd year they've offered this model ... what they label as a 2018 model is what they build now in 2017 through whenever they finish production for this model year? I'm thinking to purchase a recently made unit vs one from last seasons stock in case they made any design tweaks. Thanks

sounds right, new models probably won't come out until late August or September I'd guess

Is there a significant difference in price for the 824 vs 724? If not I'd much rather get the 824 model......

Thanks to all.

The 824QXE is about $100 more than the 724QXE. The 724QXE is $749. I was debating whether it was worth the extra $100 for the bigger engine but based on others reviews it seems the 724QXE would be more than adequate. I live in the general Philadelphia area and have a relatively flat driveway although relatively long. My only concern with what I buy is if will still do good when the new is wet/heavy and how it does at the end of the driveway.

For $100 more I'd get the 8. I buy and recondition snowblowers for sale​, have 5, 5.5, 6.5, 8, 9, 10, several of most. Though I like the lightness of the 5, all are for sale but plan to keep the 9 & 10. The 9 & 10 are bulky but those are the ones I prefer to keep and use. I'm in NJ and can get less snow than Philadelphia.

I would get the 8 also and make sure the machine you buy is the model year you want cause some dealers will sell you a leftover if they have them in stock. it's new but not the current year. most likely left over from last year

current machines
1-toro2450E-38419. 1-toro3000E-38435. 1-toro 3650E-38445
2-toro 521E-38052. 1-toro xl824pt 38086
1-.............,TORO XL 624ps..............
1-............, TORO XL 824ps..............

I would get the 8 series. Where I work we sell all the Toro line. The 8 series usually sells first only being few dollars more.

Thumbs up

I myself really don't see the big deal if it is a 17 or 18 model year. because the 18's will have left over parts from 16 or 17. I got a 93 model year and it has 91 and 92 year parts on it.

Long LIVE THE POWERSHIFT!! MAY IT NEVER RUST IN PEACE!!

While nobody ever wanted less power, I can say the 724 is perfectly fine. The issue is not a lack of horsepower for doing the end of driveway, it's that these snowblowers are not ice-chewers. If you get into the hard stuff you need to chop it with a shovel first, then blow it with the blower. I sprayed mine down this year with the Dupont Snow & Ice product (https://www.walmart.com/ip/DuPont-Sn...eflon/41426636) and it never once clogged or gave me an issue. Best stuff ever.
