Petrol powered leaf blowers are notorious for inspiring the ire of entire neighbourhoods, with some communities even having campaigned to have them banned! Even the most noise-sensitive of neighbours, however, would have nothing bad to say about Toro’s three-in-one Ultra 350 Blower Vac. Powered via the mains and capable of blowing, vacuuming and even mulching fallen leaves, this exceptionally versatile machine therefore provides an effective means of clearing leaves and other loose debris from lawns and driveways without any of the noise or emissions with which leaf blowers are frequently associated.
Let us linger on this point for a moment longer, as there truly are few quieter or cleaner running handheld blowers available on the market today. Fitted with a brilliantly potent 1450W electric motor and powered via the mains, this makes the Ultra 350 Blower Vac perfect for use in urban or residential areas where noisier petrol equipment would be liable to cause any simmering neighbourhood feuds to explode into life. Capable of achieving a maximum airflow of 11.0m³ per minute in vacuum mode or 7.2m³ per minute in blow mode, along with a maximum air speed of 235mph, Toro’s handy little machine is therefore ideal for maintaining a tidy garden while also keeping the peace (perhaps even in both literal and figurative senses, depending on how combative your neighbours are).
The versatility of the Ultra 350 Blower Vac is equally remarkable, with a quick release latch making it quick and simple to switch from blower to vacuum mode. Infinitely variable speed control, meanwhile, means that it is easy to customise the Ultra 350’s performance to suit the job at hand (so even wet leaves can be removed with pleasingly little effort). Moreover, as mentioned above the Ultra 350 Blower Vac can also serve as a potent leaf shredder. This is because the tough metal impeller features serrated blades which will quickly shred leaves and other soft debris into fine mulch, thereby significantly increasing the collection capacity of the vacuum bag supplied as standard.
Furthermore, as the Ultra 350 Blower Vac is one of the lightest handheld blowers available today, weighing in at an astonishingly inconsiderable 3.2kg, and fitted with an ergonomically designed comfort grip handle, it is also superbly simple to use. The improved handling and control offered by its compact design, needless to say, noticeably improves performance and user convenience, so even less experienced gardeners will be able to enjoy the results the Ultra 350 Blower Vac can deliver. Built to last and supplied as standard a full two year manufacturer’s warranty for added peace of mind, this little machine is therefore ideal for any urban gardener looking for a quiet, versatile and powerful handheld leaf blower.
