How to Identify and Fix Common Gardening Problems ?

We provide a variety of viewpoints on how to identify and fix common gardening problems. Our sources include academic articles, blog posts, and personal essays from experienced gardeners :

If you have a small yard and are diligent about keeping up with leaves as they fall—or if you want to surgically suck up leaves from around bushes and flower beds—the vacuum mode on your leaf blower can save time and effort.
Vacuum switches respond to a change in negative pressure. If a change is signaled, an elastomeric diaphragm opens or closes an electrical circuit based on a predetermined pressure set point and activates the vacuums switch.
An air blower uses a rotating impeller/rotor to create a vacuum. This vacuum causes air to rush into the blower. The air enters the centre of the impeller and is divided by the rotating blades. Centrifugal force increases the speed of the air and volume of the air stream within the housing.
A blower uses high-pressure air jet flow to blow the leaves away, while a leaf vacuum uses high suction power to suck the leaves inside the collection bag. If you want a better dirt disposal method, choose a leaf vacuum. But, if you want to have a cleaner garden within a short span of time, choose a leaf blower.
Vacuum blowers are an essential piece of equipment in many industrial settings. They work to enhance airflow through the use of an electric motor, impeller and airfoils. Their purpose is to remove contaminants from the air such as dirt, dust, and move particulate matter.
Depending on its intended use, a cordless leaf blower with a CFM between 400-700 should be powerful enough to greatly ease your fall yard chores. If you have a small yard with little debris, choose one with 200-400 CFM.
The higher the CFM, the larger the area your blower effects and the better you can keep objects moving. You need both to make the most efficient use of your time. If you have high MPH and low CFM, you can get pebbles, mulch, and other large debris to move, but it won`t go very far away from the nozzle.
Some leaf blowers feature a reverse mode that allows them to function as a vacuum. With this feature, the blower`s motor runs in reverse so that the airflow through the machine moves in the opposite direction, sucking debris into the blower`s chute rather than pushing it away.
Blowers increase the pressure of the absorbed gas by a series of vortex motions formed by the centrifugal movement of the impeller. When the impeller is rotating, the channels in the impeller push the air forward by the centrifugal movement and a helical movement occurs.
Unlike regular vacuums, shop vacs are durable and capable of handling dust, debris, and heavy objects that need to be picked up. They have powerful suction and they do not throw dust and other irritants into the air the way that regular vacuums or sweeping might.
In order to actuate the switch, the diaphragm needs to be pushed against the switching mechanism. So it all comes down to this. Air is either pushing the diaphragm up, or sucking it up. That is the difference between a pressure switch and vacuum switch.
Check the filters: A clogged filter can cause a vacuum cleaner to blow air instead of sucking it. Check the vacuum filters and clean or replace them as needed. Check the hose and attachments: Check the hose and attachments for any blockages or obstructions. Clear any blockages you find.
Because it`s impossible to remove all air molecules from a container, a perfect vacuum cannot be achieved. Of course, removing more air increases the pressure differential and strengthens the potential vacuum force.

Useful for wet debris: A leaf vacuum often doesn`t provide enough suction to suck up wet debris and leaves that are stuck to the ground. A leaf blower on the other hand ejects enough air to clear the wet leaves and debris on your land, making for an easy clean up.

Same prob. ray vac circles bottom of deep end. tink2b3 suggested moving the gears? what does that mean?
ANSWER : Mabey the gears in the backup valve a small football in line about 18″ from wall. Just pull it from the water if you have one that is about every one to two munites it should send a jet of water out the side of the backup valve for about ten or fifteen seconds. If it dosen’t you need a new one . Quite often a more likliy problem is tight swivels your local pool store can ck these for you and the leingth of your hose should just make the far point of the pool so it streches the hose and pulls all the kinks and loops out. Your pool store can help you with much of this and they will check the whole unit if you bring it in to the store and will usually just charge for parts.

I bought a Toro ultra electric blower vac (model 51599 a year ago but never used it. Now that I need to use it I can’t find what I did with the instructions. What do I have to do to attach the vacuum bag?
ANSWER : 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!!!!!!!!!

Ray vac has stopped moving
ANSWER : The rear jet could be the problem?

RAY VAC GOES IN CIRCLES – Jandy Ray Vac Pool Cleaner for Inground Concrete
ANSWER : Change the pusher hose, the pusher jet, and the pusher jet sleeve. These are the first things coming from the end of the unit toward the wall. If you replace all of these parts and it continue to circle, change the front wheel.

Problem is my hardly used Toro Blower Vac is getting no Power
ANSWER : 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.

Fuel lines dry and brittle how to replace on craftman 24cc gas powered blower vac
ANSWER : Take one of the lines to a hardware store and see if they have the proper size. You should be able to change them easily. Just remember to clamp the ends to prevent gas from leaking out.

My toro model 51599 ultra with metal impeller began to overheat and shut it self off… is there a reset switch…this happened after moderate use
tnx
ANSWER : If you take it apart there is a little spring on the bottom of the motor. When overheated it “trips” and looses contact with a wire. Need to reset the spring.

Where can I get a manual for a toro CCR-3650 – Toro Blowers Rake and Vac – Electric Blower/Vac – 51573
ANSWER : Go to www.toro.com and should be able print it there.
