Toro 621 series question
Original Message   Nov 17, 2012 10:10 am
Does anyone have any idea why Toro does not implement a version of their joystick chute control on it's single stage machines?  They go as far as providing chute rotation with the QZ option but stop short of remote deflector control.  The zip deflector is certainly nicer than a friction based deflector adjustment, but why not provide the complete convenience of a remote for this as well?  For the price of a 621QZE (around $750 USD) you should get this kind of convenience.  Maybe even a headlight as well.  I don't think you should have to step up to a 2 stage machine for these features.  There are those who will never need more than a single stage, but let's admit, there are times you need to change the deflector angle quite often depending on the wind and objects surrounding the driveway.  Only thing I can think of (besides cost) is that in a SS machine you dont have as many solid places to mount additional mechanisms as you do in a 2 stage, where you have exposed motor and various bracket mounting options.  But the Cub Cadet 221 LHP seems to pull this off.  I would like to see these features in a quality Toro machine.  It certainly wouldn't detract from the 621's already solid performance...it would just make it the ultimate in convenience in a quality SS blower.  Does anyone think they will adopt these features in the future, or is there a reason that this doesn't make any sense?
