Having to shovel the walk and driveway when it’s covered by a foot (or more!) of snow is no fun at all. Most families will have their kids do this chore, but for people whose children are too young, not at home, or you don’t have any children—guess who’s stuck doing it? You are.

Fortunately, the Toro 18” 15amp Electric Power Curve Snow Blower can help make snow removal a little less of a chore.

As you read our review, we’ll be going over the features of the Toro 18” 15amp Electric Power Curve Snow Blower, and we’re also going to provide you with a summary of what the customers who have bought the snow blower had to say about their overall experience with it.

Power Curve Snow Blower


Then, we’re going to give you our recommendation on whether or not this snow blower is something you should consider getting to help you tackle the snow clean up this winter.

About The Product

The Toro 18” 15amp Electric Power Curve Snow Blower is designed to be able to remove large amounts of snow quickly and all the way down to the pavement. The snow blower uses a zip deflector that you can select the distance that the snow is thrown - be it high arches, low arches, or somewhere in between.

Notable features of the Toro 18” 15amp Electric Power Curve Snow Blower include:

  • Power Curve Technology
  • Easy to Use Controls
  • Lightweight and Easy to Store
  • Throws snow up to 30 ft.
  • Clears a path 18 inches wide and 12 inches deep
  • 15 amp electric motor
  • Zip Deflector
  • 2 Year Warranty


You can change the angle of the chute up to 160-degrees so you aren’t covering the path you just cleared (or throwing the snow in your neighbor’s driveway!).

This snow blower uses a 15 amp motor with the patented Power Curve technology, which helps to make the snow blower move much quicker and easier through the snow.

In one pass, the blower can clear an 18-inch wide path in a foot of snow. All you have to do is plug it in.

Pushing this snow blower isn’t too difficult because it only weighs 25 pounds.

The ergonomic handle provides the user with maximum comfort while clearing the snow, but it also gives you leverage for when you have bumps in the way.

To help you make fast work of the snow removal, this unit also features large six inch wheels with the needed traction to get through the bad wintery mess.

What People Had To Say

When looking at what people had to say about the Toro 18” 15amp Electric Power Curve Snow Blower, we noticed that many customers had some great things to say about the snow blower. Of these positive reviews, customers raved by how lightweight this unit is without sacrificing power.

Several people mentioned they were older individuals or had mobility problems and they said that this snow blower was perfect and very easy for them to use.

Other customers commented on the power of the snow blower. One person went so far to say that this unit was “the little engine that could” because it was able to handle snow drifts up to 24 inches.

With a couple of passes and going slow, it made it through. The same person said when going through 10 inches of snow, it worked easily without any problems whatsoever.

With the good, there will be some bad. Fortunately, this product didn’t have too many critical reviews. Of these less than stellar reviews, customers were disappointed by the size of the unit. Some said the wheels were too small and they wound up dragging the snow blower through the snow.

Some said the output chute was too small and the snow would get clogged from time to time. Other complaints some people have had with this snow blower was that in order to activate the motor, you needed to press both the trigger and a small safety button at the same time. This could be challenging if you’re wearing thick gloves.

Another think people were disappointed in was that you had to worry about the extension cord while removing snow. It’s an inconvenience, especially when you’re trying to get the job done quickly.

Our Recommendation

The Toro 18” 15amp Electric Power Curve Snow Blower is going to save your back this winter, especially if you live in an area where the snow comes down by the feet, not the inches. This electric 18-inch, 15 amp Power Curve snow blower has the ability to make short work of the latest snow storm in a short amount of time.

The Power Curve technology enables the snow blower to blast through 12-inches of snow without clogging, but you can also adjust the chute to make the snow go wherever you want - up to 160 degrees that is. If you’re feeling especially spiteful, don’t hesitate to shoot that snow onto your neighbors car!

In all seriousness, we like this particular snow blower because it has the power to move up to 700 pounds of snow every minute. This means you’re going to be out there in the cold for a very short amount of time (depending on factors like weight of snow and how large of an area you’re clearing).

You don’t have to worry about trying to lift this up onto your deck to clear it—it only weighs 25 pounds, allowing you to carry it up the steps with one hand while holding on to the railing with the other.

When you purchase this snow blower, you can show Jack Frost that you aren’t going to be stranded in the house because he dumped mountains of snow on your walkways. After a very short amount of time and minimal effort, you can be back inside sipping hot cocoa!
