    I have a toro 7/24 and i was wondering if anyone knew how to make it shoot the snow farther then it does and also if someone can help me with anything I should do to keep it running strong and reliable.

    have you checked the blower belt to see if it is worn or stretched?theres not alot to blowers keep them greased make sure the oil in the engine is toped off and keep good fresh clean gas in it run some cleaner every once in awhile thru the gas tank.I have a toro myself a power shift 1332 and thing is 9 yrs old and had my first breakdown with it this year the drive chain broke other than that she runs good and works good.make shure in the fall before you use look it over really well change anything questionable and lube evrything up cables linkages,check worm gear oil I personally use synthetic oil in my toro starts alot easier......
