    A lot of guys use Toro CCR Powerlite for clean up and small jobs when they are plowing with a truck and need a blower for small walks and hard to clear spots.......

    Weight to power it is a pretty sweet little machine and if you need more just go up the line with Toro, can't go wrong.

    Yup. CCR 2000's are all I use. May try a powerlite one of these days.

    Yeah, I have a Toro 2450, and a lawnboy equivalent of the 3650. I really like them both. There is no difference between these 2 s, so do some shopping and see what you can get. I also own 2 Ariens blowers, and they are nice, but not as good or as light as the Toro's. My workers always went for the Toro's last year. They loved them, and so did I.

    Toro for me is the best! Have a couple CCR 2000 models a featherlite and a 21" Powerclear. All are great for blowing lots of snow. Two strokes with paddles so no engine oil or transmission oil to worry about. They are very fast and the powerclear has cool chute control by the top of the handle so you don't
    have to bend down to change the chute direction.

    the power light is the way to go... it is a smaller cleaning width, but it moves snow faster than the ccr 2000 modle... i have a few of every thing, and the first ones taken by the workers are the power lights...and they never clog

    38 LBS , and worth every bit of a 50 lbs unit

    Toro is all ill ever run. we currently have just a few of the 2450's and a 3650, also have a powerlite which works great on stairs cause it weighs about the same as a fully loader shovel. These units are extremely durable and also easy to maintain.

    Toro - 3650's

    There is simply no substitute!

    1st - unit 2001 has hundreds of hours and mega snow action
    2nd - unit 2007 last year you could get this style (bought it in a heart beat)
