Toro 51602 Variable-Speed Blower Review
Are you fed up with a single speed blower then you will be happy that the Toro 51602 Electric Blower comes with a powerful two-speed motor that can deliver incredible air speeds of up to 230 mph.
The blower has a compact and well-balanced design making this blower/vac comfortable to use and easy to maneuver in tight spaces. A great feature is that it requires no tools to change between different modes.
As a leaf shredder, this tool is capable of reducing 10 bags of leaves to one bag. The power cord holds firmly in place with the exclusive cord lock system so the extension cord will never come unplugged from the unit during use.
- Customers like the variable two speed setting that the previous model didn’t have. But it works at its best at high speed.
- It can be put together in under 5 minutes.
- The unit can be used easily on the yard, the porch, and even to dry a car.
- The Toro is easier to maintain than a gas-type blower, and a lot lighter. So you can get job completed without much fatigue.
Some customers feel that the vacuum mode is weak and you have to place the blower right above the leaves in order for it to pick up any. With its plastic blades you must avoid picking up more solid debris as it could damage the blades.
The Toro blower is excellent and really pushes out a powerful air speed. It gets the job done quickly, especially in tight spaces where leaves and debris tend to gather.
“Never had a blower vacuum before. Pretty easys to use. Tried the vacuum feature and am not so sure about that. Seems like it would be better if the vacuum worked just like the blower did, but as it is you pretty much have to have a pile already made up to use the vacuum. Just seems like a little more work then it worth. I could be using it wrong also though. It is light and easy to handle and really does have alot of power though.“

“This is the second Toro blower I have used. Both were this same model. I have a one half acre lawn, with seven pine trees which shed pine straw 6 months of the year. It’s a big job to clean it, but the Toro blower works well. I like the high power and wind speed. It is also easier to maintain than a gas-type blower, and a lot lighter. I also have a Craftsman (Sears) blower with the same wind speed, but it is a lot heavier than the Toro.“

“I was a bit worry about the power output of this unit because it was electric! However this is has more power then I ever need to do the job. The umbilical cord seemed a problem at first but now that I figure out a system and know the outlets around the house this is the best and cleanest way to do the job. Now Can’t imagine a combustion engine on my back and inhaling fumes“
