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 Toro Rake & Vac™ 51617 is an electric blower with a maximum air volume rating of 350 cubic feet per minute (CFM) and an air speed of 210 MPH.
  • Power delivery: This is a corded blower, so its 10.5 Amp engine needs to be plugged into a power source during use. Note that the power cord might not be included with the blower. Should you wish to obtain one, use our gauge calculator.
  • Cord Lock Mechanism: Corded power tools can sometimes inadvertently be unplugged during operation. The Toro Rake & Vac™ 51617 prevents such accidents by featuring a cord lock mechanism.
  • Handling: Being handheld, this blower has a good maneuverability and is meant to be easier to carry around over a small period of time. All told, it weighs 6.5 lbs — the Toro Rake & Vac™ 51617 is neither the lightest nor the heaviest electric handheld blower on the market.
  • Speed Settings: Toro designed the Rake & Vac™ 51617 with control and precision in mind. That’s why this model has 2 speed settings, meaning that its air output can be adjusted to suit the user’s needs.
  • Vacuum: It features a vacuum allowing it to suck up leaf and debris once the sweeping job is complete.
  • Mulching: Its mulching ratio is 76%, meaning that it will turn 4 bags of soft debris into one bag of mulch.
  • Noise: With a decibel rating of 66.5 dB, the Rake & Vac™ 51617 is neither louder nor quieter than its rivals in the electric handheld category.
  • 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.
