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.

Outstanding leaf blower

By GregT58

from Phoenix, AZ, USA

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

Tons of power and volume of air. Very easily configurable from blower to vacuum mode, and back again. Variable speed is genuinely useful, to my surprise. Metal impeller is an absolutely key upgrade over the lower priced model with the plastic impeller; slightly higher price worth every penny. Great product.

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

      When first purchased, this unit worked fine. In about 6 months, the starter/stopping/air adjustment switch would NOT turn off. In order to use it, you have to plug it in and unplug it. Upon looking into repair parts, a few blogs suggest throwing away the blower if this happens as there are no repair parts. The only parts available from ANYONE are replacement bags or plastic parts. Looking into Toro's website, no interior parts are listed for replacement/repair. I would NEVER purchase this unit again. In fact, I doubt I'd buy another TORO product after looking at their lack of customer repair options.

        The unit will shut off by itself or sometimes won't shut off at all. The variable speed switch has definitely failed. I liked the unit but if you can't by a replacement switch not sure I'll buy another one. Warranty period is two years so I'm out of luck there too.

        The blower vac is fantastic! I use it at least once a week to suck up leaves that have fallen on our artificial turf. Easy to use and well made. Our original product was defective so we sent it back to Toro and they sent us a replacement--awesome!! Super happy with the customer service and the blower.

            I debated between the lower end, the mid range and the high end units. I decided to go with the mid range unit. It does everything I expected and need for my yard. I like the idea of a metal blade. It has a good warranty, too.

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

            I have had one for the last 2 years. I needed a new bag, but decided just to get another blower vac. I have a problem transferring from blower to vac. I just don't have the strength to make the change easily. Which consists of taking the bag off. I am a woman in my 70's with arthritis in my thumbs, other wise it is very easy for me to use. My grandson has no problem, it is just my problem. I have two 60 yr old oaks, the blower vac is great for the leaves. I use one as a blower and the other as a vacuum.

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

            I was so excited to get the bigger product.( I had been pleased with my smaller model, but sadly it was recalled). It is a bit harder to handle and to use in tighter areas but works well overall. I was extremely disappointed that the bag zipper broke and ripped away after one use. Now I am stuck with the expense of purchasing a new bag or paying for a repair. Not what I expected.

              I bought this Toro Blower Vac to replace the Toro I'd had for more than 15 years. The blower part works fine but the bagger coupling was broken apparently before it was put in the Toro box and when I opened the plastic bag it was in it fell out in two parts. Compared to my old Toro, the bagger connector assembly is not made of as durable a plastic and since I use the bagger a lot I'm concerned it may not last very long. Over all the Blower/Vac is easy to use, not too heavy and the motor appears strong.

              After.a heart attsck, my wife did not want me to rake leaves any more; so we bought a leaf blower. It is light-weight and easy to use. The most difficult part of use was finding a place to plug in the extension cord. We haven't yet tried the vacumn; but we are very happy with the purchase based on the blower.

                I already wrote to you that the fan nut comes loose and the motor shaft strips the nut holding the fan. Had two of these within a year and they did the same thing. No local dealer will work on electric Toro's and sure am not paying you to fix it!

                This was bought to replace our ancient Toro electric blower that gave up the ghost after 15 years! I like the metal impeller on this one and the multi speed dial. Today, I went out and blew the leaves in our back yard with it and it performed very well. I gave high ratings due to the experience with our old Toro blower and how this new one has performed.

                The suction tube clog easily. It is gaudy and difficult to hold comfortably and maneuver. The only plus really is that it pulverizes the leaves into fine particles making it efficient to really fill your yard waste bags. Lesson learned, I am loyal to Toro being that I own a Toro mower and a Toro trimmer but now wish I had purchased a different leaf blower/vac.

                  Replaced my old Toro yard vac/blower this year after several years of use. Dependable and reliable are "watchwords" I'd use to describe this piece of property maintenance equipment. The new model (purchased this year) is much quieter than the previous model and that's an added PLUS.

                      We were looking for a leaf blower when we found this Toro Ultra blower vac. It's great that you can blow the leaves into a group than vacuum them up and have them mulched into a carry bag. Being only 5'6" tall I'd like to have the ability to shorten or lengthen the vacuum nozzle to suit the height of the user. I find it difficult to use the vacuum feature without it sucking to the ground as I can't keep it up off the ground.

                      No more mixing gas and oil, gas fumes in the garage, and pulling the starter cord till your arm falls off. (I don't miss my old gas blower.) Yes, you do have to deal with an electrical cord around bushes, but make sure you fasten the cord so it don't unplug, and you can deal with it. The variable speed knob works great for controlling the air volume when blowing out the garage. There is plenty of air speed and volume for blowing the leaves and twigs from the flower beds and bushes around the house. If you have an acre to clean up that is a long way from an electrical outlet, then I would think about a gas machine, but for what I'm doing, this machine is perfect.

                        Its a good blower vac. Doesn't work well on wet leaves clogs up. The zipper ripped after the bag got wet and dirt in tracks. Needs to have a heavy duty zipper with coarse teeth. I hope Toro takes care of this or I will have to have new zipper sewn in.

                            Old one finally gave out after many years. Quality products.

                                I usually burn my leaves, but with the drought, there's a burn ban. This tool was great! It made good mulch for putting under my Leyland Cypress trees. We won't burn any more, this is faster, and less work. We bought a similar product at a low price tool store, and returned it the next day. For just a few dollars more, we bought this quality product. We've worked it hard, it will hold up.
