The PowerJet offers the perfect balance of next-level power and
performance, including the highest cubic feet per minute (CFM) of any
corded blower available to date. Offering an impressive air volume of
725 CFM, the PowerJet outperforms standard blowers topping out at 500
CFM and helps homeowners remove leaves faster than ever before.

Adding to the power of Toro's latest blower innovation is its air speeds
of up to 140 mph, which allows it to lift heavy, wet leaves while its
.728 air horsepower provides efficiency. Weighing less than 6.7 pounds,
the product is also designed to be easy to carry and quiet thanks to its
low noise levels.

"Toro has a strong, trusted reputation for its blower/vac combinations,
and we have been hearing from our customers that there is demand for a
powerful, dedicated corded blower option as well," explains Christina
Howell, Toro marketing manager. "We knew our blowers could deliver more
power and more air, and we took on the challenge to design a product
with the largest combination of CFM and mph in the market."

The PowerJet has additional features that make fall yard care easier,
such as…

  • Cord lock, which holds the extension cord firmly in place so it
    doesn't interrupt yard work.
  • Variable speed dial to match the right power to the right job.
    • Low power around hard surfaces and landscaping to be gentle around
      certain parts of the yard.
    • High speed for tackling tough lawn chores and getting debris out
      of crevices.

The PowerJet is covered by a 2-year full warranty. Toro recommends a
14-gauge extension cord, which is not included. More information on the
blower is available at www.toro.com/yardtools
