Rated 4 out of 5??by BillyBobJimboYeehaw Nice vacuum, but needs a bigger bag
When I'm using this to suck up leaves, it does the job very well. However, the bag is too small. After about 30 seconds of vacuuming, the bag is full. It takes about twice as long to empty the bag than it does to fill it.
If Toro made a larger bag, this would help a lot. Even better, if there was a way to have the leaves empty right into a trash bag without the need to empty a bag into another bag, that would be a REAL time saver!
Overall a good product, but the bagging part could use a lot of help.

Rated 4 out of 5??by bsatt needs a few modifications
Works great! Love the convenience. Would like to see the zipper on the bag open from the bottom not the top to make it easier to empty into paper bags. The vac and the bag are too long for someone my height (5' 2") to use easily.

Rated 4 out of 5??by Sadie66 Excellent power but heavy and cumbersome
For a 66 yr old woman, this is a powerful tool to carry around a big yard. The 2-speed power is excellent, but if you don't turn it down in the flower beds, it'll blow all your soil aid/bark into the yard. When I used the vac, the bag got so heavy, it felt like I was dragging an elephant on my leg. The vac did a good job however, and mulched a huge pile of leaves into a tiny little sack of shredded leaves. I can see that it could turn 6 leaf bags into 1. MY BIGGEST ISSUE/COMPLAINT: the cord kept coming apart from my 100 ft heavy duty power cord. They connect ok, but if you step on the cord, or it gets stuck on a plant or bush, it'll come apart pretty easily. Really needs a connector to hold the two cords together securely. And, when using it as a vac - the cord comes off the FRONT and in the way. Also, when I changed from blower to vac, and back to blower again - pushing the button and pulling the tubes off was a two person job for me - could not do it alone.

Used about 15 times over 4 months then stopped working. Not worth the money.

Rated 5 out of 5??by Dingo1 Excellent product with easy to use features
Very good product for a home owner. Easy to use. The bag is very easy to remove and replace. I use the Blower Vac cleaning up after my hedge trimming. Vacuuming and then blowing. I have a lot of continuous hedge around the house and the 230-mph air stream does the job. I am very happy with it.

Rated 5 out of 5??by bogie62 Product is great for heavy duty jobs.
This blower/vac is a real hoss. Its great for sucking up piles of leafs. Its a great blower too for heavy duty jobs. Not so much for lighter applications. Its a little too heavy and awkward to handle. Changing out attachments takes just a little to get used to. But after all, that's why they call it a super blower/vac.
