This has nothing to do with the question. I have 2 of these blowers in my garage and neither one works. The on off switch doesn't work and its the only part you can't purchase or replace. Also I have the Bagger that connects to a barrel. This does not work either. The hose is way too short and it won't stay on the barrel. I will never buy another toro product. I called them and they would't do anything about this.
I would say it does the smaller sticks pretty well so far. As for weed stems, if they are somewhat dried up it should work. Although they need to be sucked into it so that may be hard. Try breaking it up and throwing it on a pile of the leaves so they help carry it into the impeller.
I think it is the amount of power and suction it has. I went with the 51621 as it had much more power than 51619.
Not heavy!! I’m 63 and a woman, use it all the time!! Not sure what it weighs. I love it!!
Well, I’ve done it? But it is electrical? Blowing snow kind of blows snow everywhere. And snow melts , so probably not a great idea.
You would flip upside down the push forward on the little red release where the nozzle and the machine meets, once that part is done them push forward for the second pie e to release. That’s it, very easy once you get the hang of it.
More versatile blower
I do not think it's that powerful to pick up rocks, however I only use the blower portion of the machine.
