I've owned Toro products over the years and have never dissapointed. This model (51599) is no exception. It is well engineered and assemblies quickly and easily. I've used it to vacuum up leaves and blow leaves with ease. I've dropped it more than once and I can attest to it's ruggedness. Nothing chipped or broke. The extra power really reduces the work load in cleaning decks and driveways or debris especially after a heavy wind/rain storm. I would recommend this model blower.

Rated 5 out of 5??by R2D4 Toro Vacuum/Blowers are great
I bought Toro Vac/Blowers and will buy more down the road.
They have problems however.
The circular on-off switch does not always turn off. I wish you had a toggle switch to turn it on and off then one can use your present type of switch to speed it up or slow it down.
The one I have now also turns off and on again without any noticeable input on my part. I am looking more closely at the electrical connection from the extension cord.
When filled, the bag is painful to lug on my shoulder: maybe a double shoulder strap would be an option.
Can Toro attach some kind of cloth handle to the bag near the zipper, for carrying or emptying the bag?
Or put some kind of gadget like a rake at the end of suction closest to the ground to allow vacuuming leaves from driveways and sidewalks.
One more thing: the connector release needs to be modified: I had to file the catch from the male bag attachment because the opening did not allow it to be depressed enough to release it from the female connector.

I couldn't be happier with this blower. Variable speed makes it easy fopr me to switch from landscape to driveway clearing.

Rated 5 out of 5??by GaryMD This product is very lightweigth and easy to handle. It also provides a very adequate level of power for all my lawn care needs
In comparison to other lawn blowers I have and have had, this Toro Ultra Blower Vac is one of the easiest tools for me and my wife to us. First it is extremely light weight and very well balanced in my hand, making one handed operaton easy. The thrust of the blower is far better than others I have had, and the varilable control of the air flow is very desirable versus other blowers that typically only have a 2 setting blower speed. It currently winter in Minnesota, and last week I found another use for my Toro blower. It had enough blowing power for me to use to clean a light snowfall from my driveway, steps and sidewalk. Finally, I used the air vacume feature of my Toro a lot this last fall, as one of the Blower's best feature was the size of the mulch it would reduce the leaves thus minimizing the constant need to empty the catch bag. Like the Toro blower vac so well, I now have a second one for my lake home use.

The Vac and Blower works amazingly well. Be able to perform both functions (blowing and leave vacuum is a plus.

Rated 5 out of 5??by edge love my toro blower!!
I am on my second toro blower, still have the first one but dropped it off a roof, it's duct taped together and still works good. I bought a red super blower, the first one had problems with the variable speed switch, I sent it to them on a monday and there was a brand new one on my steps on tuesday. Excellent customer service!! I use my blower every day in the summer, works great on the garage floor. One tool I could'nt live without.
