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.

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

This product is strong enough to blower away the leaves that are wedged between rocks. It also is strong enough to vacuum up the leaves if I wanted to do that.

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

Used product for two years, this year the on/off dail broke in the on position. I noticed in the years before that it seemed a little flimsy but ignored it because the leaves needed to be cleared. Now I'm stuck with a broken machine. The parts are not that easy to attach and especially to detach but do stay in place once they are attached. The bag is small and fits ackwardly. Will not purchase again if it has the flimsy switch. Don't have money to waste.

        Excellent leaf blower, I have not used the vac because I have a professional unit that does that. This unit moves leaves, sand and small rocks to clear sidewalks, porches/ decks and parking areas. Works wonderfully. When I need another poser yard tool, I will get a Toro, no bull

          I took off the little blue cord storage thing, because my cord is also used for a few other tools and I knew I'd never have use for that. I could be wrong, but it seems to me that the oscillating nozzle results in the unit having a slightly reduced air output. Those are not biggies, though. Bottom line is that this is a great leaf blower that out-performs my other two units. It's a winner. The unit without this oscillating nozzle is the same unit, so get it and save a few bucks.

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

            As I mentioned, I like this product as I have purchased this model for a third time. The blower seems quieter and a bit more powerful. Leaf vacuum seems much more powerful and the collection bag design is a big improvement, placing the zipper at the bottom which makes it much easier to empty into a bag or can. BUT, after only 2 weekends, a hole appeared in the bag. I may have to look elsewhere next time. Having to replace a bag which costs roughly a third of an entire new unit doesn't sit well with me. Other than the bag I would recommend this product.

                    Blower is adequate for the average yard does exactly what it is supposed to do. I've found that the vacuum feature on this size blower( not just Toro) is to small and slow if you have a lot of trees..and I do. It does a great job of stacking the leaves in a pile or row to be picked up by hand,swept directly into the can, or picked up by a riding mower as I do. This is my second Toro blower and the improvements made in this later model eliminated all the complaints I had with the first one.. I'll buy another when its time.

                    Cons

                    • weak tab on suction tube

                    Best Uses

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

                      I bought this unit to replace a 25 year old unit that I had from another manufacturer. Based on the prior unit, I knew that this time I wanted a metal impeller (the old one was plastic). And I wanted a unit that had the hood that fits on a trash can. Finally, the way the tubes and hoses attach, they simply can not come loose and fall off -- which was problem as my old unit aged out. So all in all, this is a great unit. The one very minor flaw in the new Toro Ultra Blower Vac is the two-piece suction tube. I realize it comes in two pieces so that it can fit into a smaller shipping box. However, on the second use, the tab that holds the two pieces together broker off. So I have simply duct-taped the two pieces together, and will not take it apart until I am done with the leaves this fall. Between now and then, the unit does not get put away in the box.

                      After 21 years my Toro Super Vac 51582 finally bit the dust. It got heavy usage including occasionally air drying my car after washing. Needless to say, I would only consider another Toro. Settled on the 51618 as the blower tube would slide inside a 3 inch downspout(wouldn't on the 51619) that is 10 feet long that I hold overhead with elbows on the open end to clean out 2nd story gutters. More powerful than my old one and just 1 lb heaver so I can manage sliding along the gutters. Less than a week old and it does a great job on clean up. Also less noise than previous one. Haven't tried vacuum yet, but don't use that much.

                      I have been very pleased with the way my Toro blower/vacuum has worked with the exception that it does struggle on large leaves. I frequently have to clear the tube of debris but on smaller to medium sizes leaves it works wonders. Even with that being said, I would definitely recommend this product.

                      I had an earlier version of this leaf vacuum. The new one has a metal impeller - great for acorns, I hope. The big tube now has a click together fastener. The older model just had the 2 pieces shove together. They tended to come apart. The new one has a variable speed power control. This is good in places where there is gravel, for example, or new grass seedlings. Sometimes less is more.

                        Incredible performance! Blower is outstanding in completely blowing leaves and even small nuts and berries off the grass and into the forest. I live next to (almost under) large trees at edge of parkland and have huge quantities of leaves and nuts and other debris. I also have flowering pear trees that drop thousands of little berries. This blower easily handles the job especially well due to its "jiggling" motion. No longer do I have "wrench" my arm and shoulder to swing the blower back and forth. This model does it for me. Powerful vacuum with tremendous reduction of leaf material into very small pieces for easy disposal. Only problem is severely deficient bag attachment which has zipper that fails after only 8-10 uses. I have already gone through 3 bags - zipper simply detaches rendering the bag unuseable. Is there a better replacement bag? Otherwise the blower/vac is an incredible product - best I have ever used (and I have used several).

                          Leaf blowing and premise cleanup is a breeze with this product. The only problem I had was with the vacuum. It would stop running occasionally. Maybe it was due to the area I was cleaning, which was in a stone/plant landscape garden.

                            I bought this product primarily for it's ability to mulch the leaves. As a blower it works very well, and as long as the leaves are reasonably dry it does an excellent job of macerating the leaves to very small pieces. However once wet the shredding ring will continue to work well but the debris will build up round it and in the suction tube, and care is then needed not to overload the motor, so check and clean the machine when mulching damp or wet material. Personally I find the debris collection bag awkward to carry when it starts to fill and think that a better strap design would be helpful

                                I bought this blower/vac in December 2012. and I really like it, but I have replaced the bag twice, and it just broke again. The weak link is the bag zipper. It fails about once a year and must be replaced. Toro really needs to put a strong metal zipper on the bag instead of the cheesy nylon zipper they use.

                                Easy to handle, great variable speed for garden areas, for the large projects in the fall it could use a shoulder belt to carry it. Would like to see toro engineers design a curved end to clear gutter debris.

                                Machine used to blow and vacuum leaves from a small yard for two seasons. The first indication was erratic failure to shut off. Then the machine would not always run at full power. Now it is hard to find a setting where it will run at all. Find a spot where it runs and try to hold the position steady. And it turns out you can't buy a replacement part.

                                  This is the 4th yr I've run the daylights out of this unit & it's still going strong! On the "Neg" reviews I'm c-ing the very same problem, "Switch" stops working shortly after using. The "Switch" prob is more than likely caused by operator error! How is this possible? U CANNOT use a cheap drop cord when using anything that's electric. A 16/3 cord will not cut it! U'll burn something up 4 sure. U've got 2 use a quality, 14/3 cord, min & even then if it's a 100ft cord U R using & ur going out in ur yard 100ft from the receptacle, then U need 2 use in conjunction with your 14/3 cord, a H-Duty 12/3 cord that U plug this cord in 2 the outlet 1st, THEN plug the 14/3 cord in 2 that cord. Just 2 B on the safe side, I always plug a HD 12/3 cord in 2 the outlet 1st, then plug 14/3 in 2 that 1. However, if U R going 2 try & go way beyond a 100ft (like I have 2 at times) I use 2, 12/3 cords instead of the combo 14/3 & 12/3. That way U won't burn the switch or the motor & U'll get many yrs of use!

                                  Same symptons for switch like many on the internet: First, the blower will not turn completely off (keeps spinning)(12 uses) In the 2nd Year the speed varies up and down. Today, one has to turn the speed switch speed back and forth continuously to get 1/3 power.... Toro sells replacement parts for everything except the switch. Our previous Toro metal impellar lasted at least 10 yrs. The blower is totally useless with out the ability to replace a simple part, otherwise in great shape.

                                    I bought my first home in 1997 and one of the first yard tools I needed was a leaf blower. The Toro model I purchased back then had all the necessary features. Recently it was much needed at my vacation home in Wisconsin so that is where it now resides. Now needing a new leaf blower here. I shopped Toro and this new Toro Ultra Blower Vac (Model 51619) has all of the features of my older one with several enhancements. The tubes connect together more easily and the blower velocity can now be dialed up from slow to fast, rather than just "low" and "high" as on the old model. Also, with the metal fan blade (versus the plastic one in the old blower) I'm confident that those leaf piles I vacuum up for bagging will be thoroughly mulched. Tar spot disease appeared in the trees last year so it is requested that we bag the leaves for weekly pickup. I had the opportunity to use this new leaf lower for the first time this week and I am totally satisfied!

                                    When I need a new Leaf Blower, I always buy a new Toro Leaf Blower. I have a suggestion to make the product better. Need to reinforce the motor mounts. I reinforced the slots made in the plastic body. I placed two metal pieces with a slot to hard the motor steady and prevent it from slipping down on the blade guard.

                                    Good product, good strong motor for the leaves, only negative is the cord frequently slips out from its hook, and the unit as a whole is a bit heavy, a shoulder strap might help, but otherwise good unit
