Re: I need instructions for using my Toro vacuum/ mulcher...
Mine is a Black & Decker so I don't know if this will help. On mine there is one release button near the top of the handle. You press that down to release and remove either the blower tube or the vacuum bag assembly, whichever is currently on -- you can't have both! Then you engage the attachment you want to put on into a pivot at the bottom of the handle assembly, press the release button and engage the attachment at the top.
a 6ya Repairman can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

If you're Toro electric blower is slowing down, throwing sparks, or not starting you may need to replace the carbon brushes. Replacing brushes and cleaning commutator early can prevent damage to motor armature!
There are Electric Motor replacement carbon brushes on E-bay for all three motor sizes (7 AMP, 10.5 AMP, and 12 AMP) of Toro Leaf Blowers (Toro Rake and Vac Super and Ultra Blower Vacuums)
Search E-bay for: "Toro Blower Carbon Brush"
- 12 Amp leaf blowers Toro Super (Old model 51552) through Toro Ultra (New model 51609).
- 10.5 Amp leaf blowers Toro Old through Toro New model 51573.
- 7 Amp leaf blowers Toro model 51586 and other Toro 7 amp blowers
Common sense tells me it is not that hard you probably do not need an instruction manual, does life come with a instruction manual O Yeah the Bible. Believe in yourself review the situation, think it over you can do it!!!!!!!!!
I would not use any Ryobi leaf blower to vacuum and mulch up leaves. If you vacuum up a acorn or small rock, it hits the impeller, which is plastic, and knocks one of the fins off. Then you will have to have the unit repaired and they are not cheap. HTH Good Day.
That blower vacuum is very easy to operate if you have all the pieces. You need the tubes to blow, you need the larger tub to vacuum and if you want also a bag to attach to the bigger tube. The bigger tube has to be attached at the opposite part of the machine and once you turn it on it will vacuum.
You should have another door that goes in front of the impeller (blade) which doesn't have a vacuum attachment. You should first detach the vacuum door from the bottom, put on the blower tube, and install the other door that came with the blower. Hope that helps.
* CFM (cubic feet per minute) is the measure of vacuuming power. Ratings fall in the 350 to 600 CFM range.
* MPH (miles per hour) measures blowing. Leaf blowers perform at levels from 125 - 210 mph.
* Decibels (dB) is the noise rating.
* Reduction ratio on mulching blower/vacuums calculates how many units of leaves the mulcher can produce. A 10:1 ratio means that 10 bags of leaves can be reduced to 1 bag of mulch.
* Speed settings allow better control when blowing or vacuuming.
* Attachments, such as extension tubes for cleaning gutters, are available separately.
* Blowers perform the single, simple function of blowing material.
* Blower/vacuum combinations combine the blower function with a vacuum feature. Leaves or debris can be directed into an attached bag, which makes this type of unit great for vacuuming leaves from shrubs. An additional mulching feature is available on some leaf blower/vacuums. Mulched lawn debris can be used in compost piles or bagged for disposal. Most convert easily from blowing to vacuuming mode.
