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: This electric leaf blower has a maximum air volume rating of 350 cubic feet per minute (CFM) and an air speed rating of 210 MPH.
  • Power delivery: Being that it is a corded blower with a 10.5 Amp engine, the Rake & Vac™ 51617 requires a steady power source and must be plugged in when using it. 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.
  • Cord Lock Mechanism: Since accidental disconnection can be a real inconvenience, the Rake & Vac™ 51617 features a reliable cord lock to prevent it from being unplugged during use.

  • 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.
