    I use a toro 826 OE for my customers drive ways and sidewalks. This is a good machine and I have no problems with it's performance. The ocasional newpaper, water hose and magazine may be under the snow and causes a clog. This usually presents a good amount of down time. I thought that I may not be clearing the blades properly. Any thoughts or experience here to help me next season. Thanks in advance.

    You have a nice machine. Great thrower. I keep a box cutter and a hack saw to cut out anything. I don't try to salvage hoses, ect. Also keep shear pins and a wrench to tighten right on the machine to replace-very little down time. Hope this helps.

    Great thanks that will be a lot quicker than trying to work those objects out.
