Just caught wind of this deal thx to Bargain Barrels. Lowest price in its history, according to Camelx3
Looked around and noticed Home Depot has the same model, same price.

Seems well reviewed, and its a Toro!

Please check your CC T&Cs. CCs usually double manufacturers warranty UP TO one year.
This is same width as my electric snow blower, did not know such narrow length gas SBs exist.

This IS an electrical snowblower, stilltippin. However, I do have a 16" or 18" Toro gas one that is not sold anymore. Sometimes I wish it would be wider, but it's very compact to store.

If someone doesn't mind running an extension cord or have a big drive way, this seems to be a good deal.

Had one for years and love it. The cord's a bit of a pain but manageable. Stores easily - mine's folded in half and hanging up on the garage wall.

i think i fall into this category, and really don't want to spend what seems to be $500 plus for a gas powered.

Purchased from HD with free delivery! Thanks OP!

Info below pasted from Consumer's Reports. CR doesn't give good marks to any of the electric machines, (light duty only) but this Toro rates highest of them.
OVERALL SCORE
38
Toro Power Curve 1800 38381 snow blower
Price
$249.00
Highs
Surface cleaning was very good.
Handling was excellent.
Ease of using the controls was very good.
Has electric start.
Lows
Removal speed was poor.
Plow-pile removal was poor.
Throwing distance was fair.
Lacks a headlight.
Only one speed.
Lacks freewheel steering (making it harder to turn).
CRs Take
This 18-inch, single-stage corded-electric snow blower tops an unimpressive group. This 26-pound machine scored just fair overall--think of it as a shovel alternative for clearing decks, porches, and short walks. It was poor at removing snow quickly and the same at clearing the plow piles left by municipal snow plows. When it came to dispersing snow, it was fair; consider other models where throwing distance matters. The Toro was best at leaving a clean surface. Noise is low enough that hearing protection isn't required.

Thanks! Almost pulled the trigger on this guy last winter but we were half way through the season so I decided to hold off.

I assume this is not powerful enough for the snow piles left by plowing trucks at the end of your driveway?

Have been using my Toro since 2008 with only a belt change needed. The cord really does become a pain after awhile. Looking for an 80V cordless snow blower for this winter season.

This is back in stock now. Anyone who ordered get hit with duties? Mines coming from the USA via UPS and I'm a little worried the duties will kill this deal.

Clear it yourself if duties are over 20 bucks.

mine came via Amazon in 2 days. did your order from Home Depot? You really shouldnt be charged, unless you ordered accidentally from Home Depot.com? But i am not certain. Hope you don't get dinged! If so, def. complain to the place you bought it from

It can clear the piles at the end of your driveway if you don't leave them too long to harden (if you leave a pile at the end of your driveway for a couple of days, it becomes as hard as concrete). You do need to attack the pile slowly though. With a powerful gas blower, you can just take a large 24" swipe and the pile is removed completely in 2 or 3 swipes. With the Toro, you probably need to take 12 or 15 swipes of 8" because it's not powerful enough to handle a large volume of compacted snow. That being said, it's much easier to take 12 or 15 swipes with the Toro than it is to shovel a large windrow by hand.
