    I would just like to get every bodys opinion of the newer toro single stage snow blowers. I am not to happy with the quality or preformance of my newest ccr3650. Seems like every storm something or other is breakin on this machine. Also this machine feels alot less powerful then my 12 year old toro CCR2000. The 3650 is about a year old and its been back to the mechanic about 3 times since new. Is toro going cheap on there new snow blowers or is it just me? The 12 year old machine has not needed anything more then regular maintnance parts over the past 12 years and has always had sufficient power.

    I just bought myself a new Toro 1028LE and will be getting it on Thursday. I spoke to many people and everyone told me Toro is a great snowblower and also Toro did a total redesign on their 2 stage Powermax. I'll write a review after I try it out.

    Was discussing this very subject with my father in law the other day. He is V.P. at Echo right here in Illinois. Since the majority of their equipment is purchased by pros, they no longer sell single stage blowers because they are USELESS in heavy, wet snow. My two cents...find a two-stage
