    Who has the best price on paddles for Toro blowers?

    We've already burned through two sets this winter, and its barely snowed. I want to order them in bulk (probably 10 sets).

    edit: The models are 210r

    Just looked up Jacks Small Engine and PartsTree and they are both 20.79 per paddle. That's about what I pay at my local dealer. I've been told the cheaper paddles ( not Toro ) don't last as long.

    The aftermarket do not last very long. Replace them with the original toro part. Check out Russo Power Equiptment in Shiller park, IL. They have a couple of stores here in the Chicagoland area.

    Love the toro machines but their paddle design is such a rip off with their stupid wear indicator. Why put that much rubber into something that you can only wear off a quarter inch and then have to pitch them. Its ********.

    I've always wondered if you could double up the paddles to get more use out of them.

    I usually do support the local guy. I just thought Id check to see if any of you knew of a screaming deal.

    My local dealer is $46 for a set of paddles, and $13 for a scraper.

    I guess its just the cost of doing business.

    White Gardens, I just may try that out and see how it works. Watch this thread. I'll report back.
