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.

Three machines in one: a powerful blower, high-speed vacuum, and leaf shredder (see larger image).

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.

I compared a few Blower/Vac combo units before choosing this Toro 51609. Ultimately, I'm very happy with this machine.

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.

Size Name: 160 mph Blower Verified Purchase
We recently acquired an property with a lot of leafy trees and this is my first blower. When the shipment arrived, I thought that Amazon shipped the wrong item because it came in a tiny box. Snap the tube on, connect the cord and it's ready to use.

The power switch is somewhat touchy. When trying to select low speed, it is easy to accidentally bump it into high speed. I accidentally blasted away a bunch of bark and made a crater. Oops. During low speed use, it's also easy to accidentally bump the power switch to off.

The power receptacle is mounted on a short cable tail on the back end. I have several other lawn tools that have the receptacle integrated into the shell with a hook to retain the cord and I prefer that arrangement. When you reach the end of the extension cord, it disconnects easily and cuts power. There's also no strain relief so I think that eventually I will be repairing this short section of cord.

Although it looks and feels like a toy, it seems to work well on flat surfaces and bark, but struggles a little with leaves in wet grass. It just takes longer but still gets it done. I also used it to clear the gutters of leaves and it worked well. I removed the tube making it even smaller and lighter. There were a few times when the thrust nearly knocked me off the ladder.

Noise level is excellent, especially on low. Think giant hairdryer. It is much lighter, quieter and not smelly compared to the big gas blowers.

I was originally considering the Toro Ultra, but I was unsure how much vacuuming and mulching I would do and wanted something lighter, less expensive, and less cumbersome.

This works better than advertised -- I use it to clear my backyard, patio, driveway, it even knocks spiderwebs off the house and garage walls!
Thank goodness it has two speeds -- the higher setting is too strong for some tasks! I actually look for excuses to use this tool.

Size Name: 235 mph Blower/Vac Verified Purchase
Love this thing! I had a 51599 that I lent out last year and never received back. Came on a couple weeks ago to order the same model when I noticed this- this is the same blower as the 51599 but cheaper, and with newer accessories. The attachments are easier to store now, and the blue piece you see is a cord caddy that slips on the blower nozzle. Quite convenient! I now keep my extension cord wrapped around the caddy.

Great blower, great price.

Size Name: 230 mph Blower/Vac Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Those who know my reviews know I love my electric yard tools. With a smaller yard and limited storage, I don't want to have gas cans and oil sitting around. I mow my lawn with a GreenWorks 25022 12 Amp 20-in 3-in-1 Electric Lawn Mower, so walking around the yard with an extension cord is really not a problem for me. For most of my regular yard detail work (edging and string trimming), I have some battery operated Black and Decker tools, but the 18V blower just never cut it. You need power in a blower, and this Toro blower is one of the best I've used.

For starters, you are getting a really powerful 2 speed blower here. Plugging it in is very easy because there is a pig-tail for the plug, not just a plug on the unit. Pig-tail configurations are much better in this sort of device. There is also a cleat to strain-relieve the cord so it does not pull out. Assembly is a snap - just pop the plastic protector on the bottom, affix the blower tube, and you are good to go! Take care that there is a small nozzle that was inside the tube - you can remove the nozzle for a wider air path or add it for more concentrated power. I was "blown away" by the >230MPH wind speed setting. I was easily able to clean up leaves even though they were wet and on long grass. I had to drop the speed in one spot because they were shooting too far and missing my pile - fortunately there are 2 speed settings.

Cleanup is also a breeze - pop off the bottom protector and add a 2-piece tube plug a bag and you can mulch leaves. The bag has a strap to hold it on your shoulder, and a convenient full-length zip to clean it out.
