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 can force 350 cubic feet of air per minute (CFM) from its nozzle at a maximum speed of 210 MPH.
  • Power delivery: As it is a corded model, the blower needs to be plugged in to a power source in order for the 10.5 Amp engine to operate. 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: Anyone who has experienced the frustration of having their blower suddenly stop from being accidentally unplugged will be glad to know that the Rake & Vac™ 51617 has a 'cord lock' mechanism.
  • Handling: It’s handheld, so naturally it’s easier to handle and carry than larger leaf blowers, such as backpack models or walk-behinds. 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: Thanks to its 2 speed settings, the Toro Rake & Vac™ 51617 allows the user to adjust the air output to the task in hand.
  • 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: 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.
