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.

Pretty good, except

By Tom69

from Undisclosed

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

I had this blower for about a year and a half and it does a good job of blowing leaves, and cleaning cedar needles off my patio. It struggles to vacuum/mulch wet leaves, however. Something we have here a lot. Although I suspect any vacuum, except the big truck-mounted ones would have the same problem. What's really annoying is that about 6 months ago the power rheostat decided to stop shutting off completely, so to shut if off I have to unplug it. AND, I can't find a place to order a new rheostat, so there is no way to fix it.

Great power for blowing and vacuuming

By Jerry1

from Georgetown, TX, USA

Pros

  • power

Cons

  • intermittent on/off/speed control

Best Uses

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

    I like the idea of the metal impeller. It chops up small twigs very well and significantly compacts a pile of leaves. Like many other reviewers I have problems with the variable speed control. When I turn it down, the machine will go to slow speed but not turn off. I have found that if I tap, or hit, the speed knob it may, or may not, turn off. Very intermittent and not trustworthy. Note to designers: Use a three, four or five position mechanical rotary SWITCH vs a variable control (potentiometer).

      • connection of bag to pastic adapter

      Best Uses

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

        The connection/joint of the "bag" to plastic connector/adapter should be circular rather than rectangular. A circular connection would allow vastly improved sealing at the bag-adapter joint. The first system failure occurs at this joint resulting in disagreeable leakage of dust & chopped leaves in the direction of the operator at high velocity. Only solution is "duct tape" which is a pain - A rectangular connection should never got past the first design review!

        My experience with this model blower

        By OldCorps

        from Eugene, OR, USA

        Pros

        • blower performance
        • toro's reputation

        Cons

        • longevity and dependability
        • primary cord length

        Best Uses

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

          I have had three of this model blower over about 8 years. Each one has failed, somewhere within the housing. The latest, purchased late 2014, made it about 14 mos. before coming apart inside. Since it's under warranty, I didn't open the housing and inspect it, but it sounds like it's chewing itself up, as if a shaft or something gave way. It has about 20 hours of runtime, in short intervals and at various speeds. They all have had good treatment, full amperage provided, and so forth. I am reluctant to recommend this model based upon my experience, but do so based upon the other reviews: I may have just had a lemon with two of the three I had.

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

          I bought this unit because of it's great accessories and powerful motor and was not let down. I was able to take care of my front and back yard which usually makes 20 bags of leaves. I ended up with only 8 bags this year. It shredded leaves and small sticks with ease. I would definitely recommend this blower.

          Good product, could use a few refinements

          By JustanotherDIY

          from Yucca Valley, CA, USA

          Pros

          • easy open bag to empty
          • easy to change from blower to vac.

          Cons

          • non-removeable impellar
          • no positive off

          Best Uses

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

            Overall I'm happy with UltraPlus Blower Vac I bought. Mostly I've used it to vacuum up leaves, and it grinds them to a nice size that I then use around my plants. Easy to assemble and use. The bag strap could use some work; a pad on top and the place where it secures into the plastic seems (it is fairly new, so no problems yet) like it won't last long. I wish the impeller was easy to remove, as there are times I just want to vacuum and not grind. It would be nice if the control knob had a positive "off"; wish it would 'click' into the off position rather than just be at the end of the dial. A grid cover for the vacuum tube would be nice also, so if you accidentally hit something big, it wouldn't have a chance to get lodged in the tube.

            I purchased this product last fall to vacuum the leaves in my yard and it worked great. Just plugged it in and now it doesn't work. I read a few reviews about the switch having problems and it sound like I have a similar issue. Too bad I'll have to toss this in the garbage. DON'T PURCHASE THIS PRODUCT IF YOU WANT SOMETHING TO LAST MORE THAN ONE USE!

            Pros

            • great power and shreeding ability

            • bag and power adjustment failure

            Best Uses

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

              Purchased this vac approximately one year ago because reviews rated it high and it had a metal impeller.In General its a very good machine with utilitarian features. Used this quite frequently during the leaf season in Florida. However , I encountered two problems which appear to be too common with this machine. First the shoulder strap holding the bag during leave gathering broke and put an end to my collection. Toro could fix this problem quite simply by increasing the strength and amount of stitching at the point of connection. Secondly the power adjustment control will not shut off and I have to disconnect the power cord to stop the machine, A Problem. Several other review have noted this same problem. I gave this a two star rating and if these two problems were addressed and solved I would have given it 5 stars. I'm surprised that Toro hasn't read some of the reviews and addressed the problems.

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

              I think the ability to chop leaves is superior but I have to say that the machine is HEAVY (when the bag is full, too much) and the vacuum tube is too tall, Maybe TORO could make that tube three piece so us small woman (and I am average height 5'6") could shorten it. I love to compost and am middle age and own an old TORO that is probably 13 years old (and still going strong) but that one doesn't chop the leaves well anymore so I bought the 51621. I really like the idea of this machine and it works well but my back and shoulders were in extreme pain after an afternoon of use. (not a problem with the old one) For blowing, I will use my old lighter one which still works

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

                I love the vac feature of the Blower Vac. I have used it to remove debris from all my perennial beds where I don't want the plants damaged or the soil disturbed. I use the mulch that's produced around all my broad-leafed evergreens to insulate their shallow roots for winter.

                  Overall, I'm very pleased with product. The weight is much more suitable for my wife and I. The adjustable speed makes it easy to use in gardens as they make it easier to control and vacuum up only leaves and not stones. The only drawback is that when you attach the bag and wear it over your shoulder, the cord is in front of you and makes operating it rather awkward.

                    I bought a red one, brand new. Works fine in my little yard for leaves/gutters/Douglas fir needles. Next-door neighbor bought one. Buddy owns a black one. Mother owns a black one. Sister owns a red one. No complaints on the blower part, but the "leaf vacuum" part is a joke - toss the bag and pick-up chute out and use it as a blower. I've had mine maybe 4 or 5 years and I beat the heck out of it and it still runs fine. Extension cords are a hassle, but it beats mixing gas and oil and hassling with a 2-stroke engine. BIG bonus: it won't drive your next-door neighbors crazy!!! * warning! if you yank the cord out of the outlet, be sure to turn it OFF before you set it down on a gravel driveway!! #ask me how I know this# *

                    Bought on basis of excellent reviews. First one had a loose screw rattling around in the motor housing so took it back and accepted the replacement without thinking twice. Second one worked well for about 15 minutes, but then wouldn't switch off. Took it back and got my money back. I won't consider buying a Toro product again.

                            Reason for Purchase Because I converted my asphalt driveway to a "Dixie Pink" gravel driveway, giving my drive a 19th Century look, I needed a better way to collect my leaves, which a mainly compost. My prior method, a rake, was likely to be more time-consuming and more difficult (separating leaves from gravel). Corded Electric Vs Gas Powered and Battery Electric I did not want a VOC, gas driven blower because of environmental negative effects. I did not want a battery operated unit because they can be weak, and one has to keep them charged. After researching the corded electric models, I chose this one. Results I have used the unit twice and was impressed. I liked the variable speed, the power, the light weight, and storage bag (could be a little larger), and ability to separate the leaves from the gravel. I easily blew leaves into a tarp, which I could slide over to my leaf storage area for composing. The sound level was relatively low, but I still wore ear protection.

                                This product has not disappointed. I have completed clean up of my yard and was inside watching football while my neighbor struggled to fill bag after bag full of leaves and was still NOT finished. An amazing product for a great price. Grateful I followed all the reviews.

                                I've only used this leaf blower once and it's the first one I've owned. I liked the variable speed and the power it yielded. It's easy to use and not too noisy. All-in-all, I'm pleased. Larry

                                  Though I love this product when it is running, I am extremely disappointed in the quality of the variable On/0ff switch: The first failure occurred 2 months after use, while the second failure occurred after 3 years of use. Won't buy another.
