There were a few different Toro SnowBlowers on clearance at home depot, but this one caught my eye, as it was originally $729, and now only $354! My zip code is 43147, and while I didn't check more than two stores by me, both of the two stores had a new display model, as well as one still in the box (for the same price.) Model number 721QZE .

YMMV as this is clearance, but seems to be a really great deal in my area of Columbus, OH!

EDIT: I know the website says not sold in stores, but this was carried at two of my local stores, so don't trust the website.

Since when did Home Depot start turning into Kohls???

This is worth $250-$300. Actually a single stage isn't even worth it. Any snow that can be moved with a single stage is just as easy to shovel.

You people are crazy. Single stage snow blowers are perfectly fine for most home owners. Dual stages take up more space and are overkill for most driveways in urban and suburban areas. 212cc motor will be gone for clearing most snowfalls, and if you have a blizzard coming go out and clear it once it reaches 8" or 10"

That said, not sure why HD would be clearancing snow blowers right as the season starts. Website says my local store has 4 but priced at $700.

Good deal imo... I don't have this exact one, but I have a single stage for my wife to use if I am not home..

Light weight and easy to opperate... On / Off / Choke.

Mine is 'only' 123cc... This has more power for only $50 more than what I paid for mine. I agree... 'normal price' is over inflated... But a good deal if it can be found for $350.

I sometimes push a light snow fall to one side of the driveway with a shovel, and then use the single stage to throw it the rest of the way off... saves time and back pain.

A nice thing about these with the rubber paddles, is for other uses. I just had a decent size paver patio installed out back, and those rubber paddles are safe to clear the snow from the patio as well. Not only does it help us use the fire pit in the winter, etc.. but a good place to run the generator free of snow, should there be a power outage.

Another update: one of my friends in my area swung by his local home depot, and they were regular price. His store is only 30 miles away from the two stores I live by, that both have them on clearance. I guess this is more YMMV than I thought, even in the Columbus, OH market. Good luck to anyone who needs one. I had planned to purchase the Honda single stage unit this year, but at this price point, it was too good of a deal to pass up. Running 2-cycle snow blowers in the winter sucks. At least my old John Deer single-stage would leave me smelling like a burning oil / gasoline factory on my clothes! No way I could wear the same clothes to work. Hoping the 4-cycle unit with electric start will leave me smelling "normal", as well as have easy starting capabilities in the winter.

For those who poo poo single stage snow blowers, these are actually pretty damn good with snow and ice up to 10-12" which is more than adequate for typical home owners. I purchased the 721E model this year for a little under $400. It throws the snow up to 30 ft as advertised and made clearing the drive way and sidewalk a breeze. Most folks go overkill on 2-stage just because they like "man toys" but they are really not necessary. I live in NE I know this...

If you live in the north east US or any place that gets regular snow don't waste your money on the single stage snowblower. If you you get wet heavy snow over 8 inches or any snow over 12 inches you will be outside all day trying to move it. 2 stage snowblowers will cut right through it in no time. They are well worth the extra investment.

Definitely a good call. I had a two-stage snow blower (Columbus,OH area) and while it certainly did a GREAT job (I had a Toro with heated grips, tank treads, light, etc... was a $1,200 unit), it took a LONG time to get the job done. Typically here in Ohio we don't get those 8"+ snow falls. My old(er) single stage unit got the job done much faster. I elected for this unit for the 80/90% of snow falls that happen here.

Again, very well said, but this works well for me! Smilie

These single stage snow thrower threads always make me laugh.

Argument is always along the lines of... "there is zero use-case for a single stage".

Ford F150 vs Ford Raptor.

Would every F150 driver rather be in a Raptor? Likely. But... the F150 can still satisfy a level of utilitarian need... and if it's a deal (aka - slickdeal) - its worthy of a post here... Thanks OP.

Long time lurker, first time poster...

I bit on this deal. Replaced my 1995 MTD 2 cycle unit I purchased 17years ago used for $300. This Toro is well built unit, motor fired right up first try and its quieter. Used it first thing this morning to easily and quickly clear out the sidewalk and driveway from a fresh 4 inch snowfall.

This 4 cycle motor is so much more powerful than the smelly 2cycle my old MTD had while taking the same space in the garage.

Great post.. Thank you abbzer0!
