The manual says not to suck up wet leaves. It can cause damage to the machine. I would spread them apart, let them dry and then suck them up.

Answer: 
That's a relative question Blak7712. Depends on both how wet as well as the amount of leaves at one place. The greater the volume and the wetter they are, the more likely they are to clog up the intake tube causing an overload of the vac motor thus shortening it's life as well as the power cord contacts.

Answer: 
This will mulch wet leaves but as in any wet debris, it will put a harder work load on the unit as compared to dry leaves. If you are hesitant about that performance, you may want to step up to the next model which employs a metal impeller with serrated blades. It has a mulching ratio of 16:1 as opposed to this model's 10:1 and will withstand more punishment..

Answer: 
It probably won't "hurt" the machine to use it on wet leaves but it won't do a very good job on them and will plug up frequently. This machine does a good job on small spaces, in landscaping where racking isn't practical.

Answer: 
It depends on what you're shredding. If its dry leaves, then its a good shredder. If its anything remotely wet (leaves, grass) then no. The cord can make it a little awkward to use the shredder at times. I have used it half a dozen times in the fall to deal with leaves from four trees but always made sure it was dry.

Answer: 
Like a Champ! However, it will not reduce the size in the shredder too much, but will save a ton of time bagging!. Also, do not stick the tube in the pile of grass. Keep the front of tube moving a bit back and forth to displace pile and allow it to suck the grass up (same with leaf piles)

It can if small “bites” are taken from the pile, rather than immersing the vacuum nozzle directly into the pile. Doing so may cause the tube to clog with the dense clippings.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Toro leaf blower. Works great for cleaning my deck and garage. Will use it for my shrubs in the fall. Lots of power and only seven pounds. August 23, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Would not recommend! Loved this blower until just after 2 year warranty, the impeller broke. I don't use a blower very often so was very disappointed in the quality. I ordered a new impeller and replaced it. I used it a couple more times and now something else is wrong. I never used the vacuum shredder. September 3, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by One of the Best Deals Ever It's all that it advertises to be. It's features and performance is better than advertised. August 16, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by It runs and runs Bought a Toro leaf blower in the early 1980s. It just worked and worked without any trouble. Last month it was ran over by my mini-van. With some duct tape It still kept on working, except I must press on the switch constantly. Yesterday I bought this new TORO. It works like a charm. I expect this TORO may outlast me. Recommend to anyone looking for a leaf blower. February 24, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by I enjoy going after those leaves! I needed a new leaf blower/vac because my house is the wind tunnel for the neighborhood leaves. This one does the job. It is lightweight and very easy to use. August 30, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Broke after little use I used this leaf blower about 6 times in two years. No sooner the 2 year warranty expired, something inside the motor broke, and the blower was useless. Very disappointed. August 8, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Not much wind! We replaced a cheaper toro blower with this one because of a fire thinking this would be a great replacement. We mainly use it to blow leaves and grass clippings off of concrete so I can't speak about the vacuum function. The blowing velocity is poor to the point you would almost have to have the tip of the blower on the grass or leaf. We upgraded to the Toro Ultra and it made a huge difference. I don't know if it is because of the concentrating tip on this model or the slightly extra wind speed and CFM but I would definitely recommend the Ultra over this model. July 3, 2016
