This snowblower is a beast! I am really impressed with the way that it picks up even really heavy/wet snow and throws it a long distance. I am an older guy and I am glad that I got the power steering otherwise it could be a handful for me. It starts
easily even by manual pull start. Easy to assemble except that instructions were all just pictures and not very easy to understand. I went to the Toro website and downloaded their instruction manual and it was much easier to work with.
