Powerful and effective, the Toro Ultra 3-in-1 blower, vacuum, and leaf shredder (model 51609) makes completing yard work fun and easy. With air speeds up to 235 mph, and airflow of up to 390 cfm, this electric blower nevertheless is lighter, quieter, and cleaner than similar gas blowers. Featuring a sleek, ergonomic design, it's a tool that is easy to use and will grab your neighbors' attention.
Match the Power to the Task for Better Results
Tackle big cleanup jobs the right way with this powerful blower/vac. A variable speed 12 amp motor lets you select from an infinite variety of speeds between 112 mph and 235 mph. This means that you can use low speeds to clear off hard surfaces and clean up tight areas without making a mess and without sacrificing the blower's high-speed functionality.
Air Speed and Air Volume to Get Yard Jobs Done
Unlike some manufacturers, who simply reduce the size of their blower nozzles to achieve higher air speed ratings without increasing the practical value of their tools, Toro gives this blower/vac the ability to balance between air speed (measured in miles per hour, or mph) and air volume (measured in cubic feet per minute, or cfm) to ensure maximum power and performance.
This Ultra blower/vac offers air speeds up to 235 mph and air volume up to 390 cfm, allowing you to move a substantial volume of leaves and debris with ease. Two different air concentrator nozzle inserts come with the Ultra blower so you can match the correct air volume to the job you are doing. The power insert moves debris into wind rows and creates piles while the concentrator insert moves debris out of cracks and edging as well as moves stubborn leaves. The main tube is great for moving debris away from house and shrubs.
3-in-1 Versatility Makes Managing Tasks Easy
A convenient quick-release latch lets you convert your blower into a vacuum in seconds without any tools, while a metal impeller makes it easy to mulch debris. The magnesium serrated metal blades on the impeller shred leaves and other unwanted debris into a fine mulch that you can use around your lawn and garden, saving money and recycling important nutrients. It also makes it easy to dispose of unwanted yard waste, since the impeller can reduce 16 bags’ worth of leaves to one bag.
Clean and Efficient with Electric Power
Compared with gas blowers, electric blowers are quieter and require less maintenance. They start up instantly without requiring you to master a finicky pull cord. There's no messy gas-oil mixture to worry about, and you don't have to contend with noxious fumes to get a job done.
This high-powered blower/vac weighs in at a very manageable 7.5 pounds, making it easy on your back. It also features a cord hook for convenient storage of the electrical cord. It's backed by a full two-year warranty.

Top Customer Reviews
I researched the following competing models (mainly by reading their Amazon reviews - I do NOT have hands-on experience with these other units):
Black & Decker LH5000 12 amp Variable Speed Electric Leaf Hog Blower/Vacuum - seems like a good unit, but more complaints re: motor longevity and quality of leaf bag.
WORX TriVac WG500 12 amp All-in-One Electric Blower/Mulcher/Vacuum - looks cool, but expensive, poor quality, terrible reviews.
Toro 51599 Ultra 12 amp Variable-Speed Electric Blower/Vacuum with Metal Impeller - well-established, highly-rated unit with >1200 Amazon reviews, 4.5 star average. Was about to buy it, noticed that Toro had just released a newer model...
Which led me to the 51609. The only detectable difference seems to be the inclusion of some new blower nozzle attachments (cord wrap, power insert, and concentrator insert). These are all quite handy and work as intended. The cord wrap is perfect for a 50ft extension cord, anything longer exceeds the capacity of the hook and makes the unit really heavy to carry around. The power insert does help with blowing leaves more easily into rows and the concentrator insert is good for clearing stuck on debris.
Switching between blower and vac is really easy.Read more ›
Great blower, great price.
I wrote to Toro for advice, and they told me where to take/send it for repair, at my cost. Yes, at my expense, what two year warranty are we talking about??? My prior experiences have always been positive with Toro products, but this time disappointed and I am just letting you know of my present dilemma.
Know I must make another decision with a bad taste in my mouth!!! Where to next???
I have a big yard with various big trees on the property in a very rural area and while doing the grass in this large area is no particular biggie essentially because I can sit on my fanny and let a 24HP 46" cut rider-mower do about 85% of the grass cutting work and a 'back-up' self-propelled power mower for those places the big rider can't go in the more steep areas of lawn here and there, getting rid of Fall season falling leaves from all those trees [now I know why I like my other pine trees so much!] is another story entirely. If I get lazy and mow over them rationalizing that those twin big rider-mower mulch blades will do the trick and chop them up, then I hear it from my wife [! -- sound familiar?] because the lawn no longer looks green but rather a mish-mosh of color from rider-mower shredded up muti-colored leaves until the snow finally arrives and covers the big lawn soooooo it's one particular job on my big sprawling lawn that I loathe -- rake time for the leaves [a REAL drag and a half] 'and' hauling the endless leaves away bag by bag.Read more ›
