its soo late in the snowblower sales season you proballywon't find a new machine if its not on the dealers floor. its time for manufactures to start making mowers and stuff

I have found plenty of 621's and Honda 520's .....but no 721's

If they were to order one from the Toro it would be a minimum of 10 days and that is if Toro had ant left! full price too!]plus shipping....I guess I can wait for a preseason sale for next year

Give a call over to Farinas in Watertown, MA. They're only about 35 mins from Southern NH. They had two 721's on the floor when I was there on 2/19 picking up a belt for a Toro 3650. I was tempted to ask for a test run with the 721, but I had my wife and son waiting in the car.

Interesting to see how that plays out. With the 721R-C targeted for commercial use, I wonder how many folks "prefer" the quick shoot feature over a mechanically simple hand turn chute? As a homeowner, the quick shoot feature is very appealing, but as a contractor, you have to love the simplicity and basic design of a hand turn chute....not much can go wrong with that set-up in the middle of a job. Kind of that, "keep it simple stupid" manufacturer logic. I believe Honda is keeping the hand directed chute and deflector on their new HS720 for that very reason.

When I called them Monday they were all out of the 721's.....As far as the chute goes I really want the quick chute. We have tight doorway entrances in the complex we take care of. I only have one guy working with me (my nephew) and he does all the snow blowing. So if he busts something up because of carelessness he has nowhere to hide and I'll bring the wrath down on him...haha. When the power max came out I grabbed two of them way back years ago just because of their chute (just bought an 1128 2 weeks ago too)! Turns out now that Toro has won me over. Great snowblowers, we have never had any issues like with the others in the past, I will be buying Toro's as long as we are doing walkways!
