Toro 38381 Electric Snow Blower Review
Compared to similar models in its class, the Toro 38381 18 Inch 15 Amp Electric 1800 Power Curve Snow is more expensive; however, it also offers one of the most powerful motors and has one of the highest capacities for snow removal. It can clear a path up to 18 inches wide on a single pass and will work in snowfalls up to 12 deep. It has a safety button start and a trigger.
The high snow cut depth and the wide clearance path are neatly packed into small dimensions, which make it simple to use this snow blower in tight corners and to find suitable storage space. In terms of dimensions, the Toro 38381 measures 47 x 18 x 36.2 inches. Because it only weighs 26 pounds, most people will find it easy to use.
The ergonomic design of the Toro makes it comfortable and convenient to use. Its full bail ergonomic handle will adjust to the height of the user, which reduces the chances of user fatigue or back strain. The handle is also covered with a thick padding that reduces the effect of the snow blower’s vibrations on the user’s hands and wrists. The zip deflector can be used to easily change the direction of the snow blower’s chute, and the angle can be locked in, so snow goes where you want it too. Snow can be tossed up to 30 feet away from the clearing path.
Another highlight of the Toro 38381 is its powerful 15 amp motor. Among electric snow blowers, it is currently one of the most powerful options available. It works well in heavy snow, and the motor is series wound. This means that it is compatible with both AC and DC electric currents. This snow and its engine are covered by a limited, two-year warranty from Toro.

A small number of reviewers have found it difficult to start the unit while wearing gloves, but the tradeoff is that this model can easily handle light to medium snowfalls with ease.
