The Air Rake from Toro is a basic homeowner's leaf-blower weighing about 3 pounds. This lightweight tool is perfect for clearing leaves and other debris from a yard.

Toro's Blower-Vac is a larger leaf-blower that may also be used as a vacuum or a mulcher. The blades inside the blower's base are used for mulching. Attachments to the blower include a large vacuum shaft and a vacuum bag for collecting leaves and debris.

The commercial leaf-blower has an engine that fits like a backpack. This tool blows air at a rate of more than 300 miles an hour, so it's best for heavy jobs.
