New Toro PowerMax HD 1028 OHXE 38841

I have had a Lawnboy 824E (Toro} for the last 17 years and has worked great
with their Tecumseh engine,Just sold the old rust bucket for $100 lol.
Ordered a New Toro Power Max HD 1028 QHXE 38841 from Toro Online where my Local hardware store that sells Toros will receive it from Toro and put it together and bring it to my house for $1649 and a $100 Rebate Gift Debit Card sent to me.
Was going to buy a Club Cadet and even a Troy Built or even a Huskee but the Problem is that they are all made under the MTD roof of cheap stuff.
Also looked at the Husqvarna snowblowers but the problem is that they are going to close ALL consumer products within the next year or two(They already started with their lawnmowers}
That leaves me only Toro snowblowers left and I know MTD makes snowblowers for Toro but not sure what ones(Thinking maybe that MTD makes the Cheap Toros?}
Hondas are way over priced and not sure about the Newer Ariens.
Seems that the Toro PowerMax HD are well built and they get better each year.
Only problem I worry about are the CHINESE engines that they use?
I read that the Chinese engines are top of the line for their motor bikes.
I guess American engines like Briggs are NOT the top of the line when it comes to engines anymore?
But am looking forward to a powerful snow blower for the next 17 years...…...JT

Does MTD really make any Toro snowblowers? I thought they were still all made by Toro. Certainly the single stages and the Powermax HD appear to be toro exclusive. I would assume the Snowmaster too since its unique to the Toro brand, so what does that leave, the non HD Powermax? Can anyone confirm?

Enjoy that Powermax HD! We want pics!!

Not all MTD's are bad. One of my fav's is the Troy Bilt Arctic Storm™ 30" Snow Blower. The machine is bad a$$. Take a look at the specs:

357CC Troy Bilt, (probably Loncin) motor
Trigger steering
Joystick motorized chute control, (motor for this safely tucked under dash)
Top load heavy duty gearbox with 5 year warranty
14" impeller & 14" auger
Large 5qt gas tank
Heated grips

also "Chinese" engines has become misleading. There are plenty of discussions about them, and that almost all small engines are now made overseas. Most are pretty good, don't worry about that. The Toro is a great overall snowblower.

When I bought my Lawnboy 624E it was from a Toro dealer and was told from the dealer that it was a Toro with a Lawnboy decal on it.It did look like the Toro next too it when I bought it in 2002.
As I said I saw something I read about Toro and MTD Thought it might be a snowblower
but this is what I found in Wikipedia...…...JT

In 2007, MTD began building the low-end lawn and garden tractors for its otherwise competitor, Toro.
