BLOOMINGTON, Minn. – Tired of shoveling through what Mother Nature dishes out? Are you sick of worrying if you can make it through another snow season without a machine to do the work for you? Then now is the time to buy.

Toro’s S’No Risk Guarantee is taking the risk out of buying a snowblower. Purchase any Toro snowblower and if it snows less than 10 percent of your area’s average snowfall, Toro will give you your money back. If it snows less than 50 percent of the average, Toro will refund 10 percent of your purchase price. Best of all, the new snowblower is yours to keep.

The program runs from August 1 through November 15, 2013, and is good on any Toro snowblower. If you’re considering buying a new electric, single-stage or two-stage snowblower, there has never been a better time to prepare for winter.

Visit for full details on the program. Once you’ve registered your purchase, you can visit the site to monitor the snowfall in your area. Official snowfall totals are measured by National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) reporting stations across the country. Your NOAA station is based on your zip code which can be checked on Toro’s S’No Risk website.
