Opened housing and found armature on motor fell apart. Can't buy replacement from Toro. Would be easy to fix if part was available. Won't buy another Toro product and will pass along a suggestion to Home Depot not to carry their products made with inferior parts… Read Full Review

I have just purchased this product and would advise that the collection bag allows dirty water from the leaves to seep through very quickly if the leaves are wet. I ruined a good pair of jeans using this product.
Its easy to use and to change from blower to vacuum though if the leaves are wet then you can expect to be wet too… Read Full Review

Wow! I had the same problem as other reviewers and this thing is bad! The motor started smoking and I think the motor brushes are gone. No replacement parts seem to be available. Used it may be 10-12 times and I can't believe the quality is so low.
Will never buy Toro products again… Read Full Review

Had my Toro for just over two years and it started to smoke and the motor would slow down. Took it apart and found the armature burned and two off the slots on the armature were severly damaged. In other words the motor was shot. The motor is made by MAMCO and toro does not offer a replacement.
This blower is not worth the price.
The other toro blower I had previously purchased caught fire while in use and I got it on viedo and put it on the internet for everone to see.
Good for TORO marketing… Read Full Review

Had my Toro Ultra Blower Vac 51599 2 years (just past the warranty) and it started smoke and slow down. Took it apart and one motor brush was discintigrated and the board was burt up. Toro doesn't offer replacement parts. Toro is supposed to be one of the best. If I wanted junk I would have purchased a $20 thow-away. No more money to Toro… Read Full Review
