  • 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 Ultra Blower Vac 51609 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. At 7.5 lbs, the Toro Ultra Blower Vac 51609 is within the average weight range of electric handheld blowers.
  • Speed Settings: Sometimes you just need a little more power, while other times you may want a little more precision when moving leaves and debris. That’s why the Ultra Blower Vac 51609 features variable speed settings for added control.
  • Vacuum: The Ultra Blower Vac 51609 is also what is known as a 'blower vac'. Those who don’t wish to blow leaves and debris away can switch to its vacuum setting and suck them into a collection bag (bag included).
  • Mulching: With a mulching ratio of 16:1, this mulcher can shrink 16 bags of leaves down to one bag of mulch, helping you get rid of unwanted leaves and debris.
  • Noise: Its noise rating of 67 dB can be considered the standard for similar electric handheld blowers.
