You have to disassemble the entire front of the snow blower. This means removing the snow shroud, auger bits and then getting to the impeller blades. I did it once and it took me about 1 1/2 hrs to complete.

    Thans for the info. I removed the impeller blades one at a time and installed the new blade before removing the next old blade. I did this until I had replaced all 3 blades. You have to remove 6 bolts per blade It took about 1 to 11/2 hours

Can the plastic impeller on a model 51591 be replaced with a metal #100-9076

Probably but the problem will be when vacuuming
plastic impellers absorb shock from stones and other hard objects, where as metal blades will break off causing an imbalance of the impeller

Replace the fan (Impleller). The fan is out of balance and cannot be repaired. Continued use will wreck the bearings, and ultimately the motor.

My blower is running extra high and hard. so high that it shakes the cap off. how can i tame it down. model 51587

Remove the bottom of the blower or vac and see if any blades are broken on the plastic fan blade, known as an impeller. If a blade is sheared off, this could be the source of your noise and shaking. This part will need to be replaced. I've just ordered one and will be replacing mine when it comes in.

The impeller for your Toro blower is part #98-3150 and is available from for about $20 plus shipping. To avoid shipping charges, find your local Toro dealer. Go to to find your nearest dealer.
An exploded parts view is also provided on's website. This should make it easier to see what has to come apart for the impeller to be replaced.
Good luck!

Need carbon brush replacments

google for sources. In the 80's i was employed by a co that probuced brushes according to specs. We received them in bags, or envelopes, etc. If you cannot find them through the orig. mfgr., send the remaining brush or the holder, with as much of the brush as is remaining for proper dim. estimate and brush composition. some brushes have the composition of dry charcoal. while some such as "EGO" can substitute for a very soft pencil.

Toro leaf blower Model 51591 from 2003 has started

Sounds like a piece of wood is caught under/between the impellor and the case/housing. When removing the impellor, you may find it has a left hand threaded nut.
