Rated 1 out of 5Â by Bobbyherman123 Not consistent
After doing a lot of research and trying to find a good blower vacuum tool I found the Toro. The blower is great, however the vacuum vibrates too much, your entire hand shakes too much. I returned it and got a refund. All the specs of the Toro are great but I believe from mixed reviews the build of this product is not consistent. On some american reviews people talked about taking it to a repair shop and mentioning calibrations were off. I believe this is an amazing blower but due to the build defects it is hard to find a good one in the pile. I am sure if I had returned it and kept on picking up a new one, I would find a working model. I do not have the time for this. I am going to purchase a STIHL.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Robbie surprise , it works great!
I read reviews & bought this knowing some complaints but they were less than others, I am telling you that IT IS GREAT. BUY IT. It started right up after very easy short assembly. quiet operation, well balanced, doesn't vibrate as much as my sears chainsaw or small weedeater. My hands would know believe me. mulcher worked better than expected, and blows great. only thing is you have to install two short screws to put vacuum pipes on but it is easy to do & takes only a minute. exhaust blows out the front and away from you not in your face & came with shoulder strap for bag also. I only used it today & will report back in a few months but right now I love it and actually had fun blowing off porches & garage rather than sweeping. Also liked the three year war, paid 12$ for homedepot's 2 yr after Toro's runs out so thats 5yr war. I'm a happy camper !

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Pickingleaves Works ok, wear eye protection, and breathing mask when vacuuming
Motor starts ok, no issues so far. Used it mostly for the vacuuming feature. Picks up a lot of stuff, and grinds it very well. Would strongly suggest the use of eye protection and a mask when vacuuming. I wear glasses, but the dust flying around got me a couple of eye fulls, so went and put on the safety goggles over my glasses. Also put on one of those cheap paper masks to keep from breathing the dust.
Only item that might need improvement is the gas pickup. When using the unit in the vertical position the motor would loose power with the tank half full, (or half empty) when the unit was placed at an angle. Had to keep moving the unit to get it some gas.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by sjknowlton Easy to start
Easy to assemble, start and use. Worth the price. Only downside is the blower tube occasionally vibrates loose requiring re-attachment.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by JuanA Runs Great!
I've owned this blower for two years. I compared this model with others in the market and wind speed (MPH) seems to be faster than other competitive blowers. I've mulched leaves, weeds, and even mulch (unexpectedly) and it works great. I gave it a four on ease since attaching the vacuum tube takes some effort. You have to align the screws right. I've used a rachet and an impact gun to quickly get the vacuum tube attached but you have to take your time in aligning and screwing them tight. They must be tight and if let loose the vibrations will cause the screws to get lose and the vacuum tube will fall off.. That is the only issue i have this this blower-vacuum. Other than that, It starts on the first pull, and i have yet to perform any maintenance...
