Overview of the Toro 51988

  • 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. Among other gas-powered handheld leaf blowers, the Toro 51988 can be considered light, weighing only 9.5 lbs.
  • Engine: The engine boasts a displacement of 25.4 cc. Since this is a 2-stroke engine, it’s important to remember that the 51988 cannot run on gasoline alone. The fuel must be mixed with an appropriate ratio of gasoline and oil in order for it to function properly (see your user’s manual for details).
  • Speed Settings: Thanks to its variable speed settings, the Toro 51988 allows precise control of the air output.
  • Vacuum: It features a vacuum allowing it to suck up leaf and debris once the sweeping job is complete.
  • Mulching: With a mulching ratio of 10:1, this mulcher can shrink 10 bags of leaves down to one bag of mulch, helping you get rid of unwanted leaves and debris.
  • Noise: With a noise rating of 77 dB, this blower can be considered the standard for similar gas-powered handheld blowers.
  • Fuel Tank: It has an average fuel capacity, with a tank able to hold around 18 fl. oz of fuel.
