I bought this unit in December just to blow the snow off the deck in our Condo works GREAT with fresh snow.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by DiggerDave Great machine for the price
Inexpensive well made, and the design is intuitive. This as it can be set together and changed easily from blower to vac. The design seems to be robust and does not seem to have any inherent weakness'. I don't know if going to a more expensive model would really be worth it as 10 bags is fairly heavy, 16 bags may be simply to heavy to carry. As with all Toro equipment seems a very good value for the money.

Got as a gift from my children. I love the easy clean up it does, also mulches the leaves for my compost pile.

Fall leaf cleanups are so much easier with this blower, and it reduces the number of leaf bags needed.

I bought this for my mother since her Craftsman Blower/Vacuum died fall of 2013. I say I bought this for my mom but in actuality, since I take care of her yard & spend every Sunday at her home I guess I really bought it for myself. The first day I bought it, I took it over to my Momâs house to clean up the yard. After reading the entire user manual & assembly, I used the blower for about 4 hours straight with a couple of 10 to 15 minute breaks here and there. I am only 5 feet tall so the blower is large in comparison to me but I thought it was very easy to use & not at all cumbersome.
1. I used the strap the entire time while operation the Blower/Vacuum/Shredder and found the weight to be acceptable for me.
2. I was worried that the shredder consisting of plastic blades might be of issue but it worked fantastically.
3. Everything that was shredded was nice and small.
4. There were complains about the zipper. I experienced no such issue; however, I was careful with the zipper.
5. Obviously, there are smaller dust particles that escape the bag I did not see this as an issue as the shredder bag is not a HEPA Filter bag it is simply a bag to collect the shredded particles.
6. The cord was perfect never at any point did the Toroâs cord become disconnected to the extension cord since I always make a small loop between the two.
7. I bought a new extension cord the kind that was recommended to use with the blower.
8. The blower function was fantastic! It blew rocks out of crevices, blew all the leaves out of the flowerbeds and garden as well as leaves stuck down in the grass. It really was amazing.
9. The price is perfect as I was willing to pay $75 to $100 and ended up spending less.
10. For the price and what the Toro Model #51618 can do I am over the moon with this purchase.
