Overview of the Toro Ultra Blower Vac 51609
- Power: This electric leaf blower has a maximum air volume rating of 390 cubic feet per minute (CFM) and an air speed rating of 235 MPH.
- Power delivery: As it is a corded model, the blower needs to be plugged in to a power source in order for the 12 Amp motor to operate. 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: This unit has a handy 'cord lock' feature, which prevents it from being unplugged during use.
- 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 7.5 lbs — the Toro Ultra Blower Vac 51609 is neither the lightest nor the heaviest electric handheld blower on the market.
- Speed Settings: For those who are keen on having complete control while operating their leaf blower, the Ultra Blower Vac 51609 offers variable speed settings.
- Vacuum: For those who really want to make leaves disappear, the Ultra Blower Vac 51609 has a handy 'blower vac' feature (the keyword here being 'vac', aka 'vacuum'). It allows the operator to collect leaves and light debris in a collection bag to be easily discarded after the job is finished (bag included).
- Mulching: The manufacturer’s specifications give it a mulching ratio of 16:1. For every 16 bags you put in, it will reduce down to just one bag of mulch.
- Noise: With a decibel rating of 67 dB, the Ultra Blower Vac 51609 is neither louder nor quieter than its rivals in the electric handheld category.
