- Power delivery: Toro designed this unit and its brushless, battery-operated motor with top-of-the-food-chain maneuverability in mind. The 51822 doesn’t need to be plugged in, so you can take it anywhere easily.
- RunSmart® technology: An onboard chip optimizes RPM and torque in real time, for better performance, more power, more runtime, and longer tool life.
- Battery: Its 4 Ah 60 V Li-ion battery (1 L216 battery included) offers a maximum autonomy of 140 minutes on a full charge.
- Handling: For those who are looking for a portable and convenient leaf blower, this model is a strong candidate. It’s designed for easy handling and use, and its size means it’s easily carried and stored. However, for a cordless handheld blower, the Toro 51822 is heavier than most, weighing 12.8 lbs.
- Speed Settings: With its variable speed settings, the Toro 51822 allows you to precisely control its air output. In addition, the blower is also equipped with cruise control, with which the user can easily maintain the selected settings.

The Toro 51822's performance versus other blowers
The following charts are provided to give you an idea how the key specs of the Toro 51822 compare with similar leaf blowers.
- Forced air exiting this blower has been clocked at a max speed of 157 MPH. This puts the 51822 ahead of the pack as far as air speed is concerned in battery-operated handheld blowers. If you wish to benefit from air expelled at the fastest possible speed, the Makita XBU01PT and its 208 MPH could be an option to consider.
- The 51822 is powerful, with an airflow rating of 605 CFM (cubic feet per minute). This is certainly on the high end compared to other cordless handheld blowers. If air volume is important to you, the Husqvarna 350iB, with 800 CFM, could be in your good books.
- Thanks to its autonomy of up to 140 mins, the 51822 benefits from a higher run time than many cordless handheld units. If autonomy is an important factor for you, the Makita CBU01Z can run for up to 300 minutes and could be worth considering.
As you can see from this interactive chart, when compared to other cordless blowers, the Toro 51822 is on the average side of the price range.
Therefore, this blower nicely fits in the expected budget for this kind of product.
