I ask again, what is the hose diameter.

Hose diameters are always measured ID (Inside Diameter). I doubt this is 5.5 inches as no manufacturer anywhere makes a flex hose of that diameter. It's either 4 or 5 inches and most are 4 inches.

Will it work with Model#51605

just want to make sure it will work.
Asked by: Tex41
I have a 51591 and it works with the universal fitting. The foam insert is snug and would probably work on many models. The actual clip without the univ. fitting would have worked if it wasn't curved on the end.

Customer Reviews

Universal Leaf Collector is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 69.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from The leaf collector needs a bit of upgrading. A full 33 gal. can collector was included on a similar purchase about 10 years ago. When the leaf vacuum died, I pitched the entire unit. Wished I had saved the attachment. The current Toro attachment should be included in the package. The attachment had to be purchased and upgraded by me. The hose attached to the canvas constantly came loose. This was corrected by using strong tie bars to the canvas where the hose was attached. Also, the pull string holding the canvax to the can is very inadequate. I needed to use a strong bunji cord pulled tight around the can to hold the canvas to the barrel. Have used the vacuum minimal so far, leaf season will tell the tale.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Listen to the bad The reviews on both HomeDepot and Amazon were pretty much 50/50 so I decided to give it a shot. I bought it with the Toro Utility Bin so I'd have a collection system for cleaning up all the leaves. My experience lies firmly with all of the people who said it wasn't worth it. As the vacuum pressure builds within the bin during collection, eventually either the cover pops off the bin or the hose pops out of the cover. Either way is a leaf dusty mess. I tried securing the hose to the cover using a small bungee cord, which made it pop off less, but it still happened. I returned this the day I started using it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Dissapointed I tried to use the Leaf collector and found that it would not stay on the trash can. It kept coming off which was very annoying. I'll try again and see if I can get it to stay on the trash can by securing it tighter. I hope that works. The hose is not long enough so there is stress on the cover which makes it become unattached.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It works. The leaf vac collection system works the way it is supposed to work on a Toro leaf vac/blower (didn't try the adapter for other leaf vacs). Collecting leaves in a trash can is easier than collecting leaves in a small bag, at least when there are a lot of leaves. Stepping on the tube might eventually damage the tube, at least it did on an earlier version which lasted about a dozen years. By the way, the Toro mulches leaves as well with the leaf vac collection system as it does with the small bag.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from What a time saver! What a time saver! I was able to vac and mulch 25 bags of leaves into 6 garbage cans. The original bag attachment requires constant stopping to empty and is daunting on you back. This can attachment eliminates that. The only issue i had was a loose stitch on the strap and i pulled the hose free from the bags elastic grip twice. Solved stitch with a knot and loose elastic grip with a zip tie. The mulched leaves are a great size and should be used in beads, gardens,etc..

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Toro leaf vac collector gets it done While the Toro Ultra lea vac/blower comes with a bag, being able to connect directly to a 55 gallon trashcan makes all the difference. What used to take 15 big bags now grinds directly into one bag in the trashcan.(Do not mistake this impressive compaction ratio to mulching - it does not mulch.) If you are traversing uneven ground it is difficult to pull your rolling trashcan along without occassionally pulling the discharge hose from the top of the can. With someone to guide the trashcan and steady the hose, you can boogy right along and cut the leaf raking and pickup time by 90%. For any medium to large size job, this attachment is worth its weight in gold.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overall a good product Works well except that it tends to blow off the top of the collector when full speed is used. Needs a clip type of sealer instead of string.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Good idea, but extremely poor design details Does not fit my Toro Ultra, even though it is shown in the Toro advertising pictures as an exact fit. Using the connection adaptor causes it to get blocked up easily because of the foam in the adaptor. Had to use a zip tie at the intake end of the flex tube and a wire at the outlet to keep the tube connected. I doubt that whoever manufactured it ever tested it by using it as produced.
