The corded electric Toro Super Blower Vac is quite similar to the top-rated Toro Ultra Blower Vac. The main differences are that it has just two speeds, and the impeller that shreds leaves is made of plastic instead of metal. This blower's low speed takes it down to only 159 mph, so it doesn't get as quiet as the Ultra does, and it's not as good for blowing leaves around delicate plants. It weighs only about 7.5 pounds. If you'd rather have a variable-speed model with a metal impeller, the Toro Ultra Blower Vac (*Est. $70) costs only $15 more.
