About the Product
Toro is the #1 rated electric blower brand*. The Super Blower Vac features a two-speed motor, and even easier conversion between blowing and vacuuming. The powerful 225 mph maximum air stream clears sticks, debris and even large, heavy leaves. It converts quickly to an aggressive vacuum without any tools. The two-speed motor gives you more control in both blower and vacuum modes. You can't buy a more powerful hand-held blower - gas or electric.
The Toro Ultra delivers all the power and versatility you need to tackle yard clean-up chores. It offers a rugged metal impeller and variable speed air control. Its blower inserts for multiple applications allow you to tackle any space. The powerful, up to 250-mph, air stream clears debris, sticks and large, heavy leaves. It converts quickly to an aggressive vacuum without any tools and reduces 88% of mulched debris to less than 1/2-inch. This product is covered by a two-year full warranty. You can't buy a more powerful electric blower/vac than a Toro.

What customers say about "Key Specs"
Toro 51618 Super Leaf Blower Vac
  • It did a pretty good job of vacuuming up the seeds--the suction is very strong, at either of the two speeds.
  • The velocity on the blower is high enough to move even large rocks. Small ones can get sent flying at incredible speed.
  • However, on the high speed setting it is actually better at moving them than the earlier one was. And on the low speed setting, it does a good job of moving leaves without dislodging the stones in our gravel driveway.
  • Almost blow too hard even on low! Would love a more rheostat type trigger to vary speed more like a gas blower. Vaccum and mulched works great!
  • It has two speed settings. The slower one is great for blowing leaves off mulch beds without blowing the mulch all over the yard.
Toro 51619 Ultra Leaf Blower & Vacuum
  • Good blower with variable speed. I was skeptical of the variable speed from a reliability standpoint and I think it may have been it's downfall.
  • The variable speed means anyone can use this with no problems.
  • As a leaf vacuum, it picks up just about everything (except oak acorns) and very seldom clogs
  • The machine vacuums up leaves perfectly. Everyone should have one, I even have had friends order the same product....but now a replacement bag costs half as much as the $60 I paid for the whole thing.
  • Although I primarily use this as a blower, this also has the ability to convert to a vacuum which works ok but does have the tendency to get clogged a bit too easily.

What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Toro 51618 Super Leaf Blower Vac
  • I found the weight and vibration easy to manage, aa I cleared my medium sized, sloped yard of a heavy load of leaves.
  • It's very powerful and it's pretty light weight machine but after about an hour of use my arms get tired.
  • his is a great leaf blower. It's fairly light weight. I'm not sure I will use the attachments.
  • I think it was the way the weight was hanging on it. Had to duct tape it to keep a seal.
  • This blower is plenty powerful, light weight and very easy to use.
Toro 51619 Ultra Leaf Blower & Vacuum
  • Is high powered, light weight confirming my research handier than gas and more powerful than cordless.
  • I love the variable speed but am not loving the weight of the unit. It says it weights almost 9 lbs, and for me that's really heavy on the arms using this as a blower.
  • I think the weight is just fine. I'm an older guy and not in great shape; but I can use the blower for quite a while without having to rest. I think in part because the blower is balanced well.
  • It's reasonably lightweight and reasonably well-balanced with the blower nozzle. I believe the mulching unit adds more weight than necessary, especially when I'll never use it, but it's still not bad.
  • I like it's light weight and seems powerful.

What customers say about "Features"
Toro 51618 Super Leaf Blower Vac
  • The plastic vs metal impeller is a non issue for me as I don't require a vacuum feature.
  • The blower/vac portion's pigtail power cord connector and well-designed power cord holder (for your outdoor extension cord, not included) is a wonderful feature.
  • Slower than bagging manually, but the mulcher is a nice feature. Really condenses those leaves!
  • The blower feature is great. Very strong and powerful and does the job. The switch could be more defined between the two speeds but it works.
  • Vacuum feature gets clogged with lots of leafs. Cord not an issue for me.
Toro 51619 Ultra Leaf Blower & Vacuum
  • The variable speed feature is nice, it's easy to change from vac to blow, the metal impeller is bulletproof, the plastics hold up, and it's reasonably quiet.
  • This model is more powerful than the older Toro I had previously and whereas my old model basically had one speed this one has a variable speed control making it more flexible to use.
  • The mulching feature is so strong it only takes one bag to clear our entire backyard. A 3 foot high and 3-4 foot around pile can be mulched into a single bag.
  • It is much much quieter than a gas blower, it is so quite you dont really need earmuffs.
  • The dialed speed adjustment is a welcomed design, and could be run at less than top speed for most any type of leaf.

What customers say about "Power"
Toro 51618 Super Leaf Blower Vac
  • The blower/vac portion's pigtail power cord connector and well-designed power cord holder (for your outdoor extension cord, not included) is a wonderful feature.
  • The power cord attachment is clever and keeps the cord from pulling off.
  • It has so much power. Much more than any blower/sucker I have ever had in the past.
  • This one has already clearly lost a lot of its power for no reason.
  • It's not powerful enough to suck the leaves up as fast as I would like, it's more efficient to make a leaf pile and it's blades aren't tough enough to handle the leaf stems of my tree.
Toro 51619 Ultra Leaf Blower & Vacuum
  • This model is more powerful than the older Toro I had previously and whereas my old model basically had one speed this one has a variable speed control making it more flexible to use.
  • he cord holder still isn’t great and still doesn’t hold the cord as well as I think it should. Just like the old model, I find it much too easy to accidently unplug the power cord.
  • This thing is very light and but extremely powerful.
  • The balance is good, though vibration at full power seems to be much higher than previous version. Hope this one lasts.
  • He's not too crazy about dragging a cord around, but is actually more powerful and easier for him to handle due to his arthritis.
