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 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: This unit, featuring a 10.5 Amp engine, is a corded blower. It must be plugged into an electrical outlet with a reliable power source at all times during operation. 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: 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.
  • 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 leaf blower on the market.

  • 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.
