I did not receive the original Toro 1128 since they called and told me they were out of stock for the season. I agreed to receive the model 1028 Toro unit instead and did so in perfect condition.
The freight company placed the unit in my garage and even helped me un-box and inspect the unit w/o the ad'l curbside charges. The smaller engine 302cc vs. 342cc seem to do a great job last weekend after our 9" snowfall. It went through the 2' snowplow
drift at the end of my drive with only a slight bog-down of the engine. I really like the power steering options since my lower back has been hurting. This really made turning this monster and easy task. The single ball type chute controller is awesome!
I would purchase this unit again from Jack's. Sean was great to work with at Jack's too.
