New Toro 621 shoots snow on my boots

Just got a new Toro 621 and while blowing the snow, there's a little stream of snow that shoots underneath and out the back onto my shoes as I'm walking behind it. I don't know what sort of tolerance the pivoting scraper bar on the bottom is supposed to have but it doesn't move very much. The stream of snow is pretty much dead center and an inch or two wide only, but it doesn't make for a very clean clearing.

Is the scraper bar supposed to be looser? I didn't see any adjustments for it. Or is this something where the bar itself is just defective and I need to have Toro replace it?

Any comments/help would be greatly appreciated!

After looking at it closer, the scraper does seem to be the issue. I can look under the scraper bar on one side, but not on the other. On the side I can't look under, it has a lot more play - maybe pushes up an additional quarter inch or so (about double the other side or more). But I can't see any place to adjust this thing. Any pointers?

I can't see how snow could be thrown by the augers under and back towards the operator. It is more likely coming from an opening in the second stage, or impeller section of your blower. Try to have someone ethier watch or operate, as you watch to see what's going on. Carefully of course.

It's a single stage. And it truly was going under the scraper bar, which wasn't mounted correctly or defective, apparently. I took it back and got a new one.

As soon as I posted, and hit submit, I wondered if it was indeed a single stage unit. I read someware that part of the stratigy is for the auger to help to pull the machine along, and that would explain the snowy boots.

I've used blowers with the same strategy before without the issue. And you can find a boatload of videos on toro.com or youtube with this blower where that's not happening. The bottom line is the unit (or a piece of the unit) was defective, which is why I took it back.

My 621e also does the same thing but only when freezing rain or ice precedes the snow. I've only used the snowblower about 10-12 times so the paddles are still like new. If its just snow it works really good, almost down to completely bare concrete. Did you return it for a different brand or type?
