This is the third Toro Blower Vac I have purchased. The first one, an older moldel, was the best and most reliable. The second one was the Ultra Blower Vac and it had issues almost immediately. The knob for adjusting the air flow stopped working. Every time the unit was turned on it never reached the maximum speed. When the knob was turned to the lowest setting or off, the unit remained running and the only way to turn it off was to unplug it. I feel that the blower function works better than the vacuum. If the leaves are even slightly damp, it clogs easily. This time I am registering the product unlike with the previous unit. I'm hoping I get two good years out of it, if not, switching brands. For now I will recommend, if the second one goes, it's a deal breaker.
great for blowing leaves
quality and dependability need improvement
