About the Product
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.
Toro's highest performing blower vac. Everything the ultra has, plus added time-saving and leaf shredding performance. Includes the patented shreds-all shred ring that works with the metal impeller to reduce up to 97% of mulched debris to less than 1/2 inch. An oscillating nozzle kit is also included. This kit automatically sweeps the air back and forth making a wider blowing path on hardscapes without moving the wrist. Includes: main blower tube - for dry leaves; power insert - for wet, heavy leaves; concentrator - use in corners and crevices; cord storage hook - store the cord by wrapping it around storage hook; bottom-zip vacuum bag (may be used for easy storage of all blower/vac components). Debris reduction varies with material type and its condition.

What customers say about "Key Specs"
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.
Toro 51621 UltraPlus Leaf Blower Vacuum
  • The best feature of this blower is its power. On higher speeds it easily moves large piles of pine needles or leaves.
  • My wife was extremely impressed also at the speed I could knock her pictures off of the wall. She was so impressed that all she could say was, "take that outside!".
  • The high speed air gets into places you could not shovel.
  • At highest speed, it won't break up a deep pile of dry leaves.
  • The variable speed is incredible so I can adjust the level suction to avoid vacuuming up all my decomposed granite, while still clearing the dead vegetation. At full power I could probably clear my yard of all the rocks!

What customers say about "Size & Weight"
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.
Toro 51621 UltraPlus Leaf Blower Vacuum
  • It's quiet, light weight, easy to carry, and does a nice job.
  • The one note of caution is the weight when collecting leaves. The unit itself is moderately heavy and gets more so as the collection bag fills.
  • My property is huge, but I can't find a lighter weight unit that shreds as efficiently. I
  • It is relatively light weight when using the blower portion and the narrow wand allows you to get into tight places.
  • The Toro 51621 is easy to handle, light in weight but powerful.

What customers say about "Features"
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.
Toro 51621 UltraPlus Leaf Blower Vacuum
  • The handle is very comfortable for the blower use, making it seem light and allowing a variety of grips.
  • The selector switch is also very sensitive and you can very easily switch between low and high without trying to.
  • The mulching feature is awesome, I compressed alot of leaves and dog hair into just a few loads. The bag is easy to put on and take off.
  • The volume control was easy to use and I think when using it to blow stuff from a variety of surfaces the easy of changing it will be a big plus.
  • One really poor design feature is that it is very hard to push a button used to release the attachments (see my photo with arrow pointing to the button).

What customers say about "Power"
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.
Toro 51621 UltraPlus Leaf Blower Vacuum
  • Absolute power house! This is about the 51621 model. My gas powered leaf blower/vacuum broke so I thought I would try an electric one.
  • One positive about the vacuum: it is powerful enough to suck up leaves but not powerful enough to suck up dog poop, very convenient.
  • It is very powerful in both the blow and suction modes. I have been testing it on leaves and pine needles that are dry, and it performs very well.
  • This thing is crazy powerful as a blower. I used it in corners and even eaves to get hair, webs and dust. I showered before I set out to clean the back yard which was a mistake as I was covered with dirt and dust when I was done.
  • It has lots of blowing power and three different nozzle attachments for customizing air flow.
