I have an acre yard with 18 mature oak trees of 80 or so feet in height. So yard maintenance is a year around thing. My Toro does the job - it clears all but the heaviest leaf fall with ease. In late October to Mid/late November it takes alot more effort but it is the same for my neighbors who wield their $700 cyclones. They get done in half the time but considering the tool this is a David and Goliath outcome. To reduce repetitive stress problems from vibrations it is best to wear a good glove if using for more than 30 minutes.

I slected the TORO 51609 based on reviews by Consumer Reports. I especially like the variable speed control. It is a little heavy but it has a very strong blower. My primary use of the unit is to clean up after mowing and edging my lawn. I tried to use the vacuum one winter on my oak leaves. Suction of the oak leaves was just fair. The bag had to be emptied every 5 to 10 minutes which is very time consuming. I no longer use the unit to blow/vacuum the leaves. I now hire someone to blow and bag the leaves. I am on my third 51609 unit. The motor failed after 4 years(no warranty). I replaced it in June 2013 with another 51609. The variable speed control which also turns off the unit failed. I had to unplug it to turn it off. Called customer service followed the instructions and sent the unit to the service center. I received a new unit. Customer support is excellent. I rated the unit overall as average given the issues I have had with the 51609.

Great blower, poor variable speed switch

Comments about Toro® Power Sweep Electric Blower (51585):

I have had three of the ultra Toro blowers and all have failed because of the switch,, which can not be replaced. I need a new blower again and I will carefully research since Toro does not seem to be interested in fixing their switch problems.

Comments about Toro® Power Sweep Electric Blower (51585):

I purchased my blower a couple of years ago. Last fall, mid-way through the leaf-clearing job, the zipper on the bag tore from the cloth. I ordered another one to finish vacuuming up the leaves. Yesterday, I started clearing the leaves. Today, the zipper came apart; i.e., the zipper handle came off the zipper. Other than the zipper problem, I truly like blower.

Product fails

By Shebee59

from Kennewick WA

Verified Buyer

Comments about Toro® Power Sweep Electric Blower (51585):

This is the second blower Vac from Toro we have purchased. Both blower vac's work well for blowing and sucking up leaves. After a very short time the plug begins to smoke and melts our extension cord receptacle. I think the Blower needs a 3 prong plug to perhaps correct the problem. When the first Blower Vac began smoking at the cord, we bought a heavy duty extension, contractor grade to see if our cord was the ussue. We noticed melted places immediately with our new Blower Vac. This issue needs correcting. The product vacuums and blows well otherwise.

Very Good Purchase

By TCTom41

Verified Buyer

Comments about Toro® Power Sweep Electric Blower (51585):

Very powerful and light. Having to deal with a cord isn't the best, but I prefer it over A) running out of gas; B) mixing the gas incorrectly and blowing up the engine; or C) having to wait for a battery to re-charge

The blower is light but very powerful and easy to use. The variable speed feature is very useful.

Great Blower (Bad Vac Bag)

By elveez

from Minneapolis, MN, USA

Verified Buyer

Comments about Toro® Power Sweep Electric Blower (51585):

The blower itself is a great one. I've been using it for the last 5 years with no issues whatsoever.

Use common sense and it will last you forever. Wet leaves will clog it from time to time, but wet leaves will clog almost any vac like this.

One gripe I have is the vac bag - very poorly made, zipper gets destroyed after few weeks of use. I just ordered my 4th bag in 5 years.

Good Product

By cicio

Comments about Toro® Power Sweep Electric Blower (51585):

This is my third Toro blower/vac. The previous two were fine and and lasted about 5 years before dying. The bags have been the weakest part. The tendency is to eventually rip around the connector to the motor. That plus the zipper giving out are my main complaints. The new model has the zipper at the bottom of the bag. It will be interesting to see how this works. Seems to me that the pressure of the dirt will work to clog the zipper. There seems to be more dust coming through the bag on the new model. We'll keep our fingers crossed.

Another one killed by the switch...

By ppphreqd

Verified Buyer

Comments about Toro® Power Sweep Electric Blower (51585):

Wife bought one for me three years ago, and it worked great until last week. Clogged up with some frequency, but wasn't a pain to clean. Bag held up reasonably well. Good power, never felt a need to use one of the smaller nozzles.

But now the switch has encountered the same problem many others here have encountered. Last time I tried to use the thing, if I turned the knob to 0, I got about half power. And if I turned it to max, the unit turned off. Stereotypical just-out-of-warranty product killed by a cheap subcomponent.

Needs Improvement

By SlowLearner3

from Dearborn, Mi

Verified Buyer

Comments about Toro® Power Sweep Electric Blower (51585):

Had used another brand for about twelve years until it just blew up one day. Switched over to Toro and am on my third one in five years. In each case the switch to control the speed quit working. The first one was a two speed and after awhile it quit working on the hi speed. Bought the adjustable speed one and after awhile it would not shut off. Called a Toro dealer and was told there was no replacement switch I could buy.
I again bought the adjustable speed one because it was on sale. So far so good but if the switch goes again I am going back to the other brand I used forever.
The blower works great and I really like it but I think it should last more than a couple of years. I have a small city lot and really do not have to use it a lot so it is not abused. Toro needs to address their switch issue in my case.

This is our second purchase of this model. First lasted ten years before motor bearings failed. Vacuum performance much better than leaf blowing. Variable speed at highest setting unusable without ear protection. At the price point it is a great performer.

I've only had the blower about a month but it looks well made and certainly has a lot of air speed. I like the metal fan and feel it will hold up well when vacuuming leaves. If there is a negative it's the fact the fan is very noisy.

    Best Uses

      Comments about Toro® Power Sweep Electric Blower (51585):

      I usually use this product as a blower following lawn cutting/edging/trimming, although it did a fine job of vacuuming thatch from the lawn which was a LOT easier than using a grass rake, bending to pick up and discard grass. However, this is my third Super Blower Vac. I use this once per week from June to October, and maybe once every 3 weeks in Miami, FL. My first one lasted about 3 years and went up in electric arcs and smoke. The second one lasted about 2 years when the collar on the impeller blade broke and the screw fell out. I attempted to repair it, but to no avail. So my third unit is only a month old. The 2-speed switch worries me on this one, just the loose feel and it doesn't click into place, but so far, so good. Since 1983 doing my own yard work has saved me tens of thousands of dollars, so the replacement costs of a machine like this is negligible in comparison.

      Best Uses

        Comments about Toro® Power Sweep Electric Blower (51585):

        Very minimal use in three years, averaged 4-5 uses per year (10-15 hours total use). Still looks brand new but will have to discard it because of inferior quality switch that can't be replaced. Switch started acting up by not shutting off or running at full speed, now doesn't run at all. Bought due to high ratings of product at the time but based on my experience and the experiences of numerous others, designed to be a disposable product after the two year warranty expires. Won't buy a second one.

            Poor quality device. Changing from blower to vac requires removal of two pieces of equipment while balancing the motor section. The interlock fails if not properly connected. Best used as a single device. I will not buy another.

                I've gone through three bags (the original, plus two replacements) in less than five years. Either the zipper comes apart, or the corners fray so much that the ground up debris sprays out. Safety pins and duct tape help, but are not a permanent solution. Any ideas?

                My previous Toro leaf blower wore out after using it for about 10-years. I liked it so well that I decided to replace it with a new Toro. It might be my imagination, but this new Toro doesn't seem quite as powerful as my old one? However, this new Toro does the job as expected and am quite happy with it. In my opinion, I wouldn't consider any other brand of leaf blower.

                  Yard maintenance is so easy now that I have the "Super Blower Vac"! No more blisters from pushing a broom over paved surfaces or pulling a rake through thick yard vegetation or grass clippings for hours on-end. Previously, yard work took four hours, or more, to complete. I often found it difficult to stay awake through dinner because I was so exhausted. The "Super Blower Vac" allows me to finish maintenance tasks in under two hours.
