2016 Toro Models

As of today, it appears that the new Toro models are now on their website, though I haven't seen an official announcement. The Snowmaster information was posted over the weekend with the 2 stage details posted today.

I'm interested in the Snowmasters but am a bit scared of a "non-proven" setup with a 2 stage bucket but a modified single stage impeller. For not much more money, and at only about 40lbs more, you can get the new Powermax 828 OXE that now comes with the same Toro engine and a light. I like the tire size on the Powermax HD 826 OXE as we have a steep drive and that may help with traction but don't know if I want to spend the extra cash. I'll be interested to take a look at these models in person to get a feel of what works best for our needs. I contacted Toro a few weeks back and they stated that the new models should be in stores in late August to early September.

Good to hear they are still making blowers I just got back from Wash. State and checked in at 3 different dealers and wanted to buy a Toro hat and no one had one they could sell me.

Is there a link for the Snowmasters I looked and could not find any thing out about them.

looks like the old snowhounds with self propelled added. got a feeling it going to be a failure for toro like the metro was for ariens(theres a reason why parts are so hard to find, nobody owns one, and there is no mentioning of it on the ariens website) especially at a $750 msrp FOR THE BASE MODEL

I would not waste money on those snow masters. just my 50 cents on that1. and the 2 stage look to be all the same as last years models. at least the ones I have will be the last I will ever own.

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

"...at least the ones I have will be the last I will ever own."

The P-S must be darn good if it keeps you from buying a nice new Power Max HD!

Hmmm here are some near me that appear to be in good shape and reasonably priced...
