Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Leftshot Grab It & Go
Prior to purchasing this unit, I had a blower that required a power cord. I rarely used it for anything other than after the hedge trimming (when the power cord was already out for my hedge trimmer. Having a lightweight, battery powered unit I find I use it 2-3 times a week! It's easy just plug in the battery and go!
Because I already have the trimmer that uses the same battery and charger, I bought just the bare unit without those items. I love the product. The 24 volt battery gives plenty of juice to blow the entire front or back yard on a single charge (6,000 sq. ft. lot). It's lightweight and requires no setup for use. Just insert the battery, grab it and go!
Of course, we'd always like MORE battery life. But the unit runs on the medium power setting for a good 15 minutes and doesn't slow down until a few seconds before the battery is expended. If you put it on the high setting, it will go only half as long. But I've yet to find I need that setting.

The bare tool option saved me money! Battery lasts plenty long enough for sweeping. It even works as a leaf blower. If it runs out of battery power, I also own the Toro 110v electric super leaf blower/vac. I even use this to blow away light snow. You'll still want a snow THROWER for heavy snow, but this is my snow BLOWER! All this and no cord to wrap up and store.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by BostonJK12 Not recomended
Could be a good product, but for the fact the battery life for this product is 5-6 minutes. Right out of the box after a full charge, the product ran 5 minutes and stopped. I recharged over night and this time I got 6 minutes. So to use you better have a very small job. Really, I am very disappointed I can't use this for any real job. Also the charge LED lights on the battery don't work. ...well the product is not useable.
I tried to contact Toro. Using the support telephone number with their owners guide, I was totally unable to talk with a human. They just tell you if you have a problem to box it up and send to them. Some help. This lack of customer support is another reason you may not want to buy this product.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Aetna38 Very disatisfied
We live in the country and wanted a leaf blower to assist in fall cleanup. When this item came on sale, we ordered and were happy when the leaf-blower arrived, only to find out that the battery was NOT included in the purchase. We live a long ways from the nearest Home Depot store, and so the article is useless until such time as we buy a battery--which, by the way, is double what the cost of the leaf blower is. We feel it is like buying a new car but the motor isn't included in the purchase of the car. ARE YOU KIDDING--SELLING A LEAF BLOWER WITHOUT THE MOTOR TO RUN IT!! I think it is borderline false advertising.
Never heard of it before!! Never buy online again!!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by TOROSTRESS Problem with Lithium battery in my TORO blower
I actually love the size and handling of my blower..My complaint however is that it will only blow on high for about 15 minutes !! I have the Lithium 24 volt battery that comes with it and its easy to charge but absolutely will not hold the charge !! It gets very frustrating do have it fully6 charged and start work only to stop after just a few minutes... I am in process of checking to see if there is a stronger battery for it ???

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Hoss Makes sense.
I already had a Toro Weed Eater that uses the same Lion battery that the blower calls for, so I decided to purchase the blower. The battery has enough life for me to do my trimming first and then sweep the drive and walkways with the blower. I also like the fact that now I have only 1 charger on the shelf 1 battery to care for. Very glad I made the purchase.

I had high hopes for this blower, as I appreciate the Toro brand and thought the battery powered option would be more eco-friendly than the traditional gas blower.
The power of the blower was great, and I loved the light-weight feature.
That being said, the battery power is awful. It only lasts 10-15 minutes (depending on which speed you use), and then takes over an hour to recharge. I have never owned any battery-operated device EVER where the time to charge takes longer than the time to use. Disgusting.
This blower would be okay for a townhouse. Or a detached house with no driveway. That's about it.
