Answer: 
I've had two of these units, they work well. The problem with wet leave is the impeller chamber will become clogged quite quickly. Imagine wet leaves mulched to a paste-like substance between the impeller and the chamber wall. This will have to be scraped out with a screwdriver or pointed object. Mulching with this unit is for dry leaves only unless you can put up with scraping it out often.

Answer: 
Blak7712, yes it will pick up wet leaves, but, wet leaves do not mulch well. They tend to just slip by the impeller and into the bag. There is also the danger of the wet material becoming wrapped around the impeller shaft, causing the motor to stop. That is not good for the electric motor. The type of material you are talking about would pose a problem for any electric vac/shredder.

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. But that is true of any unit that picks up wet debris by vacuuming. Sounds like you may need a power Read More

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 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.

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 4.3 out of 5 by 567 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent Super Price for a Great leaf blower! Light enough and easy to use! Plenty of power to move leafs and the abundance of acorn that I don't like to rake up. It does the job I'm wanting to get done. I haven't used the vacuum part as I just bought it for blowing. I have used more powerful blowers but they are so much heavier. I am not a strong woman. This unit gets the job done without a lot of strain on me. I bought this a week ago and I have used it a few times already and had it running contiously for at least four hours each time and had no problems. October 24, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by I was pleased with this blower/vac right out of the box. The attachments go on/off easily. The handle is nice in it's design, makes the machine comfortable to use. It has plenty of power, both for blowing and for vacuuming up leaves and such. I keep an extension cord attached to it all the time making it always ready to plug in and use. I have had the blower for several months and have used it several times to clear my cement patio of oak leaves. My other blower is a commercial backpack that I used to use at a previous residence. It won't see much use anymore. The electric Toro certainly meets my needs of today. I would recommend this blower/vac to anyone looking for a compact, lightweight and user friendly piece of yard equipment. October 25, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by I bought this fall of 2015 and it worked great for me. It's powerful, versatile and the vacuum worked very well for me also. For fall 2016 I was sucking up some leaves and debris and the impeller blades broke off. The machine makes a miserable sound and heavy vibration now while using it and something has gone catastrophically wrong. So while I liked the machine I am disappointed it only lasted one full season. October 29, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very powerful I used this to blow pine needles and oak tree leaves. This machine does a great jobon the leaves and until the pine needles get almost a foot deep. I am very happy with this machine. October 30, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Toro blower These blowers last about 5-6 years. Good blowing capacity for driveways, leaves, etc. The last one I bought 6 years ago was $39 and now they are $59, so the value is marked 'good' instead of excellent. October 18, 2016
