Rated a Very Helpful Review

Pros:Not expensive
Reasonable volume

Cons:Doesn't peel or harvest potatoes

The Bottom Line: I really can't complain about this modestly priced tool that's light and easy to operate


I own two leaf blowers, a gas powered Stihl and a 12v battery powered Black and Decker. The Stihl is quite powerful but I don’t like its noise and don’t like mixing the fuel and fighting to get it started. The cordless Black and Decker is far weaker but convenient for cleaning the deck though it annoyingly loses power at inopportune times. That means an interrupting walk to the basement to make a battery change. Rather than buy a more powerful and more expensive cordless sweeper or power up the Stihl, I opted to purchase a corded model and narrowed the choices to this Toro and several Weedeater models. The Toro is slightly more expensive, but I like the two speed feature.

So how does the Toro power sweep electric blower perform? The power is superior to that of my cordless B&D blower but not even close to that of my gas-powered Stihl. Yet I have no complaints, since each sweeper has its niche for Spud Acre chores. I've used this Toro to sweep our large deck, clear sidewalks and "rake" leaves and give it an A- for all. For moving the thousands of acorns lying on the ground at this moment, I'd award it a C+ or a B, though the acorn mass presents a formidable opponent. On grassless areas of the yard the acorns scoot across the yard at a satisfying clip. Using a hundred foot electrical cord (14 gauge), I can cover and wide swath and don’t have to move to a new receptacle often.


I like that the Toro is just powerful enough to blow leaves off of the gravel driveway, but not powerful enough to blow away the gravel along with the leaves. The lower of the two speeds is much quieter and is good for blowing leaves off of our non-garaged cars and for clearing the foundation beds in front of the house.

I wish that the blower attachment were a couple inches longer, but that shouldn't be a deal breaker.

With modest expectations, most buyers should be satisfied with this sweeper. With Amazon prime the tool was delivered to my house in two days. Nice!  The same model was available at our local Ace for about seven dollars more than Amazon's price. (taxes not included)
