Description

The Ultra delivers all the power and versatility you need to tackle every clean-up chore. It is the only Toro electric blower vac to offer a rugged metal impeller and an infinite variable speed motor! The 235-mph air stream clears debris, sticks and large, heavy leaves. The Ultra Blower has infinitely variable speeds that allow for better control in both blower and vacuum modes. It converts quickly to an aggressive vacuum without any tools and reduces leaves up to 16 bags to 1. (source: Toro)
