abunda_amazon_reviews I would have given this product 5 stars, if the bag hadn't fallen apart after using it a few times. It is great having the zipper on the bottom of the bag but that's where the pressure of the leaves goes and the zipper is not strong enough to hold. The machine vacuums up leaves perfectly. Everyone should have one, I even have had friends order the same product....but now a replacement bag costs half as much as the $60 I paid for the whole thing.

I have been very pleased with this product. As a leaf vacuum, it picks up just about everything (except oak acorns) and very seldom clogs. I've had other vacs that clogged up constantly, causing me to spend more time unclogging than vacuuming! This device is very well made. The variable speed feature is nice, it's easy to change from vac to blow, the metal impeller is bulletproof, the plastics hold up, and it's reasonably quiet. Although my 2011 unit is still working great after 6 years of heavy use, it's showing some signs of wear and tear so I decided to buy another one just like it while Toro is still making the same model. They've changed the bag design a little. The new one has a zipper on the bottom so it's easier to empty. The new and old bags are interchangeable. The old bag seems to be a little more robust than the new one ... I had a premature zipper failure. The only thing about this product that I'd change is to add a plastic 'bumper' to the bottom of the bag. The bag drags on the ground while vacuuming so it tends to wear a hole at the lowest point. I have a lot of rock patio and sidewalk area so that's a problem for me and I've gone through several bags over the years. There's a shoulder strap for keeping the bag off the ground but I prefer not to use it.

This model includes the instructions, vacuum tubing, bottom-zip collection bag, power nozzle, concentrator nozzle and cord storage hook. After my previous Toro leaf blower finally gave up after more than 10 years of use, I decided to go for the 51619 model leaf blower, mainly because I didn’t think the 621 model was worth the 20-dollar difference in price, with the real difference between the two being the lack of the oscillating tube in the 619 model. This leaf blower has a few more features and some improvements over my old model. This model is more powerful than the older Toro I had previously and whereas my old model basically had one speed this one has a variable speed control making it more flexible to use. With its more powerful motor, I found that it works better at cleaning stubborn debris that is stuck between the boards of my deck than the old one. I do wish that the speed control had a locking mode to keep from accidently changing the speed. The one thing that I am happy to see as an improvement in this blower over my old Toro is this model now use a metal impeller turbine. My old Toro has a plastic one and that was what failed when it blew apart into 3 pieces, resulting in a potentially dangerous situation as the pieces were powerful enough to crack the outer casing of the blower. So I am glad to see this change in the blowers. The one downside to the bigger motor and metal turbine is that this blower is slightly heavier than my older model. It isn’t a tremendous difference but it is noticeable after carrying around for a while. Although I primarily use this as a blower, this also has the ability to convert to a vacuum which works ok but does have the tendency to get clogged a bit too easily. Maybe not possible considering how this is made but I would have liked to seen a better designed vacuuming tube and bag that clogged a bit less often. The bag is also a bit flimsy and may not hold up over long term use. One of my grips with my previous Toro unfortunately wasn’t improved in the new models. The cord holder still isn’t great and still doesn’t hold the cord as well as I think it should. Just like the old model, I find it much too easy to accidently unplug the power cord. This blower works pretty well for my needs which tend to be dried leaves and pine needles. It works ok but not as well for wet leaves. I didn’t find this model to be any noisier than my old Toro. The noise level of the blower to me was acceptable and no louder than most carpet vacuums. Overall, I am happy with this model, especially with the additional features and the improvement with the metal impeller turbine. The vacuuming accessories could be improved a bit and the cord holder still isn’t much improved over the older model but if this last half as long as my 10 plus year old model, then I will have gotten my money’s worth. 4 stars;;Reviewed in the United States on October 15, 2016;;4.0 out of 5 stars;;Powerful flexible blower;;JWINK;;/gp/customer-reviews/R178A8CZ4SCUDQ/ref=cm_cr_dp_d_rvw_ttl?ie=UTF8&ASIN=B00SBPFREU;;;Should have gotten this sooner.

It takes a little practice to get the hang of it. You can easily jam up the intake pipe if you just smash it into the leaf pile. You have to work it across, starting at the edges, and it'll do fine. Now that I've used it a couple times, I can see why the metal impeller is such a big deal. Don't waste your time on a model with a plastic impeller.

Called Toro's service center and they were useless. I cant be the first one with this ...
Strangest thing. Opened the box, put it together went out to blow leaves for the first time and it stopped working within 30 seconds. Tried multiple cords but nothing. Strange because I got this to replace my other Toro blower which had the same issue, but that one had been used for a season so I thought it just broke. Called Toro's service center and they were useless. I cant be the first one with this issue?
