Questions & Answers

Problem with Speed Control Dial??

Has anyone had an inherent problem with the speed control dial developing a short in the connection/wiring that causes intermittent power to the unit? I've had this problem from the first season and it's only become worse, to the point where the blower works for about ten seconds and then stops. VERY frustrating....
Asked by: NJLeafeater
Yes. It's a known issue, and the part is not replaceable. It's probably worth paying the extra $12 for the extended warranty, because the switch craps out after the manufacturer's 2-year warranty expires.

How to overcome extension cord length limit?

The "Maximum extension cord length" is 100 ft with 14 gauge. I need to use it about 200ft away from the power outlet. What would be best way to overcome the "100 ft with 14 gauge" limit? If I buy 2 100ft/14gauge cords and connect them to reach power outlet, will that work properly? Thank you!
Asked by: JayT0
If the extension cords are true 14 gauge copper, and not cost-cutting "14", than you can run the blower at about 60% power (use an ammeter or watt-meter to find optimum setting) per the formula: Wire Circular Mils = (Conductor Resistivity)*(2)*(Amps)*(One Way Distance in Feet)/(Allowable Voltage Drop) But really you should bet gas or battery powered unit.

Is it difficult to remove the bag to empty the shredded leaves?

Asked by: Anonymous
The zipper is strategically placed on the bottom for durability and ease of use. Easy to attach to the blower and an adjustable shoulder strap for comfort. Simply fill the bag, unzip the bottom and empty into a container.

how many pounds is it?? is it heavy?

how many pounds is it?? is it heavy?
Asked by: vangie
Weight is 8.9 lbs and worth the price. Beats bending over grabbing at leaves stuck in bushes, shrubs, etc. For starters it has a metal impellar. Some have plastic ones that don't hold up very well over time, this one lasts. Just don't imagine a perfect world like what you see in Sears-type commercials when you use this blower, muncher, vacuum. The bag fills as you work and gets heavier, especially with wet leaves, etc. You're dragging an extension cord, manuevering around plants, shrubs, etc. I've had 2 of them. Depends on what is heavy to you, this one getting noticably heavier and bulkier by attrition as you proceed, ....I'm 71 yrs. old but active and fit. Gets heavier, faster with wet leaves, definitely. Try and keep bag off to the side that is your strongest side. It will bear the weight better. Used as a hand-held leaf, debris blower is one thing, quite manageable, adding leaf, debris mulching is something altogether different. Just plan on having a barrel handy to empty bag as needed. This is a Toro and dependably a good purchase. Just use your imagination and don't think it's simply a walk in the park and more like a TV spot, w/ an admiring spouse watching and offering you a glass of lemonade. It's work and go in expecting to sleep well that night if you put in a few hours. I recommend this Toro Ultra blower, mulcher, vacuum.

Ultra 250 MPH 350 CFM Electric 12 Amp Blower/Vacuum/Mulcher is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 3018.

The "Frequently bought together" extension cord that Home Depot lists with this blower is the WRONG AMPERAGE. DO NOT buy that extension cord. Some of these reviews talking about this blower failing might be due to this. I'm not sure if there is a way to have Home Depot remove that item so please be careful guys. This thing requires a 12+ amp indoor/outdoor extension cord. That said, I've only used this thing once so I may have to check back in for a full review after a few uses. So far, it works as advertised. I bought it mainly for the vacuum/mulching ability. Changing it to vacuum mode was a snap and it sucked up all the leaves that gathered around my driveway. I would note that it only seems to be strong enough to suck leaves up when its at 90%+ power. You also have to be right on top of them. But for such a wide diameter tube, that's probably not unusual. It chopped everything up really small and was easily dumped out of the bag into yard bags for disposal.

The first failed after 11 years of use and I got my money worth out of it. The new one was a great price at Home Depot. After trying out I felt it wasn't blowing as hard as the original and thought it was defective and was ready to take it back. But I decide to try again and guess what? I found the problem. The two small nozzle tips were stuck down the main blower tube and didn't notice them until I looked down the tube and saw the restrictions. I looked in the manual and they only show a picture of them on page 5 I think in the upper right corner. Well folks it looks as if when they pack these things they shove the tips down the main tube and some may not even know they exist. So everyone here who has a low volume of air flow take a look down the main tube for the two tips. I used a plastic PVC rod to tap them out. Hope this help some of the past users and also the new ones. Maybe they need to pack it differently at the factory. Here is a picture of the tips from the video above.

I purchased yesterday to replace an old Black & Decker leaf blower that just stopped working after a number of years. I carefully read all of the reviews and selected the Toro. It’s heavier than my Black & Decker. There is no shoulder strap (like old one). It is louder than the older one! And even though it says more powerful than older one it is less powerful. I like being able to control the power & speed with the same hand that is holding the blower. This Toro requires 2 hands to control the power. And instead of a switch there is a knob that you need to turn to get the speed you want. I felt it was unnecessary and requires to must attention just to blow off my patio. And on top of that, it appeared that this product had been returned. It was not properly wrapped and it was missing 3 pieces that can be attached to the end of the blower. Needless to say this Toro Leaf Blower will be returned to Home Depot today.

Corded power tools are so passé, but fortunately, I don't care about trends and fads. I must admit, that the last time I used a corded lawn tool, was about 40 years ago, and gas equipment is my preference. All that being said, I'm not about to pay $300-400 for a comparably CFM/MPH rated gas blower, that will get used once or twice a year.. The value here is superb, and for the price, this is a great machine. It' didn't get 5 stars, because it's a little awkward(not quite ergonomic) to use, for extended periods of time, even so, I used it for about 6 hours today, and it sucks and blows nicely. Bottom line: If you're one of those guys who drives a $70k+ truck, but cannot back a trailer, don't get this, you need to send $400 on a Sthil, so you look good, but if you just want something that works well and won't break the bank, get it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a fine machine at a great price I went on line and compared a few electric Blower Vacs. This vari-speed Toro 51609 is available in the store at Home Depot for $75, a real bargain. I paid $12 for two more years of warranty--4 total. With tax= $92.00 (Its two speed version is also there, at $55.) It's a bit tough at first to figure out how to snap the few parts together, but once you see how it goes, it's easy. I couldn't believe the power of the Blower and rarely turn the full variable speed function all the way up. The Vacuum is a bit awkward to handle and the bag is not easily supported when in use but the suction is strong and does the job. It can be manipulated so as not to take up stones, etc., though there is a racket with the metal impeller when it's pulling in little sticks and debris. I empty the bag frequently so it's not weighing down the somewhat heavy machine. My wife would struggle handling it as a vac. I'd buy a 75/100-foot 14 gauge cord if you don't have one. This machine is well designed and works very well. I'm impressed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I had another blower/vac for almost 15 years. So,... I had another blower/vac for almost 15 years. So, you sort of know I liked it and thought it was pretty good. But this Toro is head and shoulders above anything I've seen or used. It's a powerful unit, but the dial speed control is so superior to the typical off/low/high switch, especially with the vacuum mode. I haven't had to get close to the top speed for this unit, even when vacuuming small boxwood leaves out of the lawn. Because of this, the Toro is much quieter than other blowers/vacs I've seen or used.I was a bit concerned about the fatigue factor as there are smaller units out there. But they've done a great job designing this so it has balance and handles in the right spot. Truthfully, weight was only a factor when the bag fills in the vacuum mode. The way everything gets mulched the bag holds a lot. I just adjusted by emptying the bag when it got heavy as opposed to when it got full.

This blower is extremely powerful without the 2 smaller attachments which are preinstalled. I did have difficulties right out of the box with the 2 smaller black attachments which are wedged inside the main black tube. The instruction do not state or perhaps I missed it that these 2 small items are located inside the tube up against the smaller opening. I had difficulties removing them and had to use a large flat head screw driver to carefully pry and force them towards the larger opening without denting and damaging the 2 attachments. Once you get them free, they will slide out towards the opposite end. The other item which I cannot stress enough is to purchase the appropriate extension cord. If you purchase the wrong gauge cord, it will melt and damage your blower. I purchased the Home Depot Husky 100 ft. 12/3 Indoor/Outdoor 12 Gauge Extension Cord and highly recommend that you do the same. I am extremely happy with the Toro Ultra and would recommend to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's the best electric blower I have ever used. The very best in electric blower/vac. It does the job and a great one at that. I love the power this machine has. My husband has a gas blower but too heavy for me to carry on my back. The usage of this blower is easy and very light weight and I can easily use one hand or pick up something with the opposite hand while blowing or vacuuming. We have 2 acres and 1+ acres is common area but all in the woods and we blow the leaves and debris rather than mowing any grass. There is no grass. We use the vacuum in the large rocks around the house and pond to clean out the leaves, etc. If anything were to happen to this blower/vac, I would get the exact machine again. Since we do live in the woods, we are constantly using the Toro and have made use of it continually, except when it snows, with no problems. I have recommended this many times. Not only did my friends buy it, but my daughter as well and some of her friends also. We all love it.
