Bumping this old thread intentionally because it's one of the few focused solely on the Snowmaster. I can't believe I'll be going in to year 5 with mine. Other than having to clean the carb and replace a lost fastener that rattled off and fell into the snow, I've had no problems. I noticed that dealers have the 824 with the 252cc engine back in stock after a one or two year hiatus of the larger engine.

Would be interesting in hearing any long-term feedback from other owners.

I received a new 824QXE direct from Toro at the end of October. It was delivered by my chosen local Toro dealer. He set it up and included a tank of 93 ethanol gas. I drained the tank immediately and ran through some fresh stabilized 90 non-ethanol gas. I just took apart and cleaned the carburetor on my Ariens Deluxe 28 after having the surging and hard starting from using ethanol gas.

I have been keeping an eye on this thread for a quite a while and decided to give the Snowmaster a shot for the smaller snow falls.
