Those who shop the big box stores love Ryobi. Great marketing, colorful packaging, and a price made to sell keeps these units moving across America.
Have a smaller lawn, or need a blower for occasional use? These economically priced units may be just what you are looking for. Ryobi has a modestly priced option for electric, hand-held gas, and backpack style blowers for the homeowner.
Ryobi Leaf Blower Model: P2102 is a great little 18 volt battery powered electric blower that runs on a lithium ion battery.. The weight is listed as 4.05 lbs, but this probably does not include the weight of the battery. The one handed design and angled discharge nozzle allows for quick clearing of sidewalks and other flat hard surfaces. Air velocity is rated at 120 miles per hour (MPH). The price is about $110.00, which includes blower, discharge tube, battery and charger. If you already have a Ryobi battery and charger lying around the house, you can purchase the unit without a power supply. The price is lowered to about $40.00. If you are looking for a really great bargain, combine the leaf blower with a string trimmer for a combo price of about $120.00.
There are some of you out there that feel more volts means a better cordless blower. In fact, the more volts, the better! For those with the voltage hungry mindset, consider the Ryobi Leaf Blower Model: RY40410. This baby packs a 40 volt cordless electric motor that generated a rated wind speed of 150 MPH. The weight is increased to 6.8 lbs, but this is still lightweight in the cordless leaf blower world. The battery will take about 90 minutes to reach full charge.
Want to buy a traditional 2 stroke engine leaf blower? The Model RY09053 could be your dream machine. This baby comes equipped with a low emission easy start engine that moves air at 400 cubic feet per minute (CFM) at 150 MPH. As if blowing leaves was not enough, this also can act as a mulching vacuum, with a mulch ratio of 12:1. The exhaust is designed for quiet operation. Weight is a modest 9.5 lbs. The machine comes standard with sweeper nozzle, high velocity nozzle, vacuum bag and tubes, and lubricant for the engine. Plan on spending about $100.00.
So maybe you are one of those forward thinking fellows, who prefers the power and lower emissions of a 4 cycle engine. Step right up to the Ryobi Leaf Blower Model RY09053 which is powered by a clean and powerful 4 cycle engine. The fan will throw 300 CFM of air at 155 MPH, with a weight of 10.5 lbs ( the 4 cycle engines have more parts, and tend to weight more than a 2 stroke). Price includes upper blower tube, sweeper nozzle, and engine lubricant. The price is about $100.00.
The biggest, baddest Ryobi leaf blower is Model RY09053, which is a backpack machine weighing in at 15 lbs. It is powered by a 2 cycle engine that produces 145 MPH velocities at 370 CFM. Added features include a mesh back for increased comfort, twist and lock tubes for easy assembly and breakdown, and a right hand throttle with cruise control.
The Ryobi line of blowers are a great option for the homeowner.
