Overview of the Toro PowerPlex™ 51690

  • Power: This leaf blower has a maximum air volume rating of 480 cubic feet per minute (CFM) and an air speed rating of 150 MPH.
  • Power delivery: Toro designed this battery-operated unit with total mobility in mind. The PowerPlex™ 51690 only needs to be plugged in when it is charging, so users can take it almost anywhere.
  • Battery: Its 2.5 Ah 40 V Li-ion PowerPlex™ battery (1 battery included) means that a user can operate the PowerPlex™ 51690 for an estimated 60 minutes on a full charge. The PowerPlex™ battery is compatible will all other Toro PowerPlex™ power tools.
  • Handling: It’s handheld, so naturally it’s easier to handle and carry than larger leaf blowers, such as backpack models or walk-behinds. Be aware that, at 8.4 lbs, the Toro PowerPlex™ 51690 is on the heavier side for electric handheld leaf blowers.
  • Speed Settings: In order to afford more control to the user, this unit has a variable speed control. No matter the size of the job, the user can adjust the airflow of the Toro PowerPlex™ 51690 to match.
  • Noise: With a decibel rating of 63 dB, the PowerPlex™ 51690 is neither louder nor quieter than its rivals in the electric handheld category.

  • The PowerPlex™ 51690 is powerful, with an airflow rating of 480 CFM (cubic feet per minute). This is certainly on the high end compared to other electric handheld leaf blowers (the biggest expelled air volume belonging to the Toro PowerJet™ F700 51624 with 725 CFM).
