Toro recalling leaf blower after reports of defective part

Toro is recalling an electric leaf blower because of a rotating part that can come lose and cause injuries. The Toro Power Sweep Electric Blowers were made between 2000 and 2002. The Bloomington-based company has received 162 reports of the blower’s impeller breaking, causing pieces of plastic to fly out of the blower. The projected pieces have caused cuts and bruises in 28 reported incidences. The blower’s model number is 51586. Consumers should stop using the blowers immediately and contact Toro at 888-279-3191 to receive a replacement.
