Yes, as you may suspect, this blower is not powerful enough to blow the chrome off a trailor hitch, however because of the convenience you will use it more often which makes it absolutely perfect for regular maintainance.I use it for everything, blowing out the garage, my car, gutters. My wife asked me to clean up the inside of the house while she was gone one day, dont tell her but it works great for that too!!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JOINTX Not the strongest but VERY convenient
Don't expect the performance of a gas/electric powered blower but if all you do is push the clippings back into the grass and cleanup leaves that fall into the driveway, etc... then this is your tool. Not heavy and very manageable. I have the 40V trimmer so buying this was a no brainer. I have an electric Toro for the heavy duty blowing and sucking. I have 2 acres of heavily wooded property and a pool so I do a daily blow around the pool to keep things away. I also use it to for the grass clippings and any odd job around the house (blowing the garage, the front path to the house etc...). Since I bought this blower I have yet to use the Toro.
Storing it is kind of awkward since there is no way to hang it but I found a solution that works for me... see attached pic.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by westcoast This blower runs circles around others out there
I decided to purchase this blower after I traded my gas edger for a 40 volt one. Since I hardly use the edger but use my other battery powered 18V blower daily that needs three batteries for me just to blow around my property and, takes 10-12 hours to charge each battery.
I decided to buy the 40 volt blower unit (without the battery and charger) since I already had it with my edger.
The blower is GREAT, I have blown out my property four different times (even my neighbors driveway) on a single charge. It take less than 2 hours to recharge the battery when I am at half charge. I love the variable speed trigger...My other blower was either on or off and when it was on, it was on full.
The easy finger trigger and variable speeds save the battery and allow me better control of the debrie I am blowing.
I ordered it online because the "unit ONLY" (without battery and charger) WAS NOT availabe in store.
I got it in great time, it need very little assembly (no tools needed).
I would recommed this to any homeowner that just needs to blow off his (or her) decks, walkways, driveways (and neighbors driveway) and doesn't want to hassel with gas or electric cords.
It won't won't hold up to BIG jobs, it starts to slow down when the battery indicator gets to half.
If you got a BIG job, you need a serious blower with lots of unlimited power.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by HCIII All you need
Solid power to blow away grass clippings and dry leaves. Battery power and time is great for a small to medium home and good for a large home. I use one battery for the string trimmer and the blower and still have power left. I would rate my yard as small to medium.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mama Very good purchase
This product is good for its size and power. I would always recommend a Ryobi product. Very easy to use and goes a long way on battery charge. I have small area to use it on, I think if a large area you would want more power. We'll see how it works this Fall when it's leaf time.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BillyBloops lightweight, great value if you already own a 40v battery
Purchased this to pair with my Ryobi 40v trimmer. They both use the same battery so this seemed a no-brainer to add to my set.
Super lightweight, no extension cord needed.
Moves mulch and debris with ease from my garage and sidewalks after mowing and trimming
Would have liked a high/low fan setting but it's trigger-powered, much like the 40v trimmer
Battery life is adequate/good enough. Typically needs a charge in between using the trimmer and this blower. Plan on purchasing another 40v battery soon in order to save time

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Photoret Great Value.
Blower is great for use on walk and drive ways. The unit is definitely not as noisy as a regular gas drive unit. The inherent variable speed feature is a must.
This unit is a great companion for your 40V lawnmower. No need to concern yourself with adding gas/oil.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Customer007 Easy and Convenient
I recently purchased the 40v trimmer with a battery and charger so purchasing the blower to go with it was a easy choice. I have some messy trees so I use this blower to blow leaves off my patio and from around my pool almost every other day. I also use it to blow grass clippings off my sidewalks when I am done mowing. It is not super powerful but for the basics it does it's job very well. The fact that you don't have to plug it or put gas in it is the best part! I have always had a good experience with Ryobi products and this one is no different. This feels like a quality product and I hope it will last a long time.
