A Toro Ultra Electric Blower Review
Toro Leaf Blower FAQ
1. Start the engine by pressing the power button and hold it for a few seconds. Some leaf blowers have two modes: a blowing mode and a vacuum mode (like the Toro leaf blower, for example). The vacuum mode is more efficient for small and less accessible jobs, where you can’t use a leaf rake. Note that it’s forbidden to switch between modes when the engine is in operation.
2. If you use a leaf blower on a large territory, it’s recommended to gather all the leaves in one place using the blowing mode to further collect it into a leaf bag using the vacuum mode.
3. When the bag is full by 2/3, it must be emptied. Otherwise, the suction efficiency decreases and the engine works with overload.
Tips for using a leaf blower:
1. It’s recommended to remove the leaves when the first autumn frost begins. In this very period, the leaves will be easier sucked in by a leaf blower.
2. When you are using a leaf blower on the gravel paths, hold the device high enough so the airflow doesn’t sweep away the small stones.
3. The maximum time of the leaf blower continuous operation is 20 minutes. After that time, it’s necessary to stop the engine and let the device cool down for at least 5 minutes. This way, you will avoid the engine overheating, and, as a result, the leaf blower can be broken.
When the work is done:
1. Don’t forget to clean your leaf blower. After you have your work done, be sure to empty the leaf bag, shake the dust out of it, and wipe the leaf blower body with a damp cloth.
2. Clean the device only when it’s unplugged.
