Description

The Toro Rake & Vac™ is 3 machines in one: a powerful blower, a high-speed vacuum and a leaf shredder. With air blasting up to 210 mph, it makes fast work of tough lawn chores. It is fast and easy to convert the Rake & Vac from a blower to a vacuum, and no tools are needed. The two-speed motor gives you more control in both blower and vacuum modes. (source: Toro)

Overview of the Toro Rake & Vac™ 51617

  • Power: The Rake & Vac™ 51617 is an electric blower made by Toro. It has a maximum air speed of 210 MPH and its nozzle can expel a max air volume of 350 cubic feet per minute (CFM).
  • Power delivery: This is a corded blower, so its 10.5 Amp motor needs to be plugged into a power source during use. Please note that some manufacturers don’t include the cord with the unit. If this is the case, or if you’re looking to buy a backup, please use our gauge calculator to ensure you’re buying the right cord for your blower.

    For this unit and this selected length, you should choose an extension cord with an AWG rating of

  • Cord Lock Mechanism: It has a cord lock mechanism, so there’s far less risk of having the cord come unplugged when the unit is in operation.
  • Handling: It’s handheld, so naturally it’s easier to handle and carry than larger leaf blowers, such as backpack models or walk-behinds. At 6.5 lbs, the Toro Rake & Vac™ 51617 is within the average weight range of electric handheld blowers.
  • Speed Settings: With 2 speed settings, this blower’s output can be set to meet the needs of jobs big or small.
  • Vacuum: As a blower vac, the Rake & Vac™ 51617 handily vacuums unwanted material into a storage bag for easy disposal (bag included).
  • Mulching: With a mulching ratio of 76%, this mulcher can reliably pulp 4 bags of waste (such as leaves and other debris) into 1 bag of mulch.
  • Noise: As far as electric handheld blowers go, this one is average in terms of noise with a rating of 66.5 dB.
  • Rake & Vac™: This Toro blower is called a Rake & Vac™. As fancy as it sounds, it’s simply one of the names Toro gives a model that functions as a 3-in-1 leaf blower, vacuum, and mulcher.
