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.

the power switch is defective

By plotts

from Lodi, CA, USA

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

after a year of use once every two weeks the thing will not shut off nor will it work on the high. you have to keep playing with the switch . and the worst thing is you can't even buy a new switch to re place the defective one.

This product performs well.

By ThomasR

from Lake Worth, FL.

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

I purchased this Toro product because I had used one before and I liked the vacuum feature besides being just a blower. I didn't want to have to blow away the same leaves over and over, so cleaning them up with this blower vac was worth the investment. The trees that my neighbors have, are constantly dropping leaves and the wind inevitably blows them onto my property. At least they can be bagged and discarded then.

Cons

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

      I bought this because I am disabled to the point I can't stand and rake leaves. This blows them into a pile, then a quick switch, and I can vacuum them up and easily transfer to a trash bag. Amazing product. I couldn't be happier. It is lightweight and the attachments make it even more versatile. Thanks Toro for making something so useful and affordable!!

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

        I bought this model because it is advertised as having a 250mph. wind. I was able to hold my hand tight over the end and stop the wind. NOT even close to 250mph. Very disappointed and took it back after trying to use it the first time. It claimed it could blow wet leaves, it wouldn't even blow dry leaves in the grass.

        Product not durable for the long run

        from Sugar Hill, GA, USA

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

        Generally a very good product. However, main control switch failed after 4 years use. The unit will not turn off and will not maintain high speed setting due to apparent switch failure. Appears there is no fix for this. I have owned other toro products and expect more life out of them than 4 years.

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

          While this blower-vac is comparable in design to the lower end model, the metal impeller blade makes a big difference and I expect it will last much longer. Good vacuum performance. I also like that all the components of the other model are compatible with this model, i.e. the bag, the nozzle, the vacuum components ... which can serve as a backup should I ever need it. I like it a lot and it was a good value compared to gas/oil engines.

          This product has a decent leaf blower, but when I switched over to the vac I kept getting a static shock. Will be returning this product.

          Great Vac/ Blower, Horrible Bag

          By Happyinthegarden

          from Philadelphia, PA

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

          am on my third Toro Ultra Blower Vac. Love everything about it except the bag. First Blower replaced after several, guessing five years, of heavy fall leaf vacuuming, fixing the bag multiple times. Replaced second because i gave up on fixing the bag. This is a fabulous tool, if only the bag lasted through a whole season. Bought another believing there had to be an improvement on the bag. I have sewed it, duct taped it, Gorilla taped it, all to no avail. Please fix the bag Toro!

          The toro blower/vac has been very dependable ,2 nd. One in 15 years.the first one lasted 12 years until I sucked a stone up while bagging leaves.when this happened I broke the fins on the motor it. Was my fault,not the blower.

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

            The only reason I gave it a 4 out of 5 is because the vacuum tends to clog, it is easy to clear the clog and the metal impeller does a great job of breaking up debris and make mulch. The blower function is great.

            The quality of the bag, specifically the zipper, is the problem

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

            I purchased the unit this past Fall and it functioned satisfactorily but the collection bag did not even last out the season before the zipper began to separate from the bag and the zipper itself began to jam and pull apart.

            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 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.

                      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.

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

                          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!
