Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by RetiredArmySgt Battery lasts 15 min
Even after charging overnight the battery lasts 15 minutes at full throttle. My wife or I use it almost every day due to the convenience to blow leaves, Colorado dust and stuff off patio, back deck, drive and from around garage doors. We keep the charger on far kitchen counter and blower can be kept anywhere due to no gas fumes and no filthy extension cords. If you put a hot battery in charger it will flash lights and never charge until you take it out and slide back into charger. Quirky but so handy you use it often rather than wait til it becomes a major project. Almost as powerful as an electric plugin unit but only for 15 min.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Doug Best customer service!!!!!
I had issues with the charging system of the 40 volt blower. I returned the unit to Home Depot for a refund. I had written a review of how I was not satisfied with this product. I was contacted by Vicki of Ryobi's customer care division within a week, asking what they could do to correct the situation. A couple of emails later, a replacement unit was shipped to me. The replacement unit is working great. I was truly impressed with Ryobi's follow up, can't remember ever being contacted by a manufacturer asking why, and what they could do to make a customer happy.
Thanks Vicki and Ryobi!!!!!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by TRW443 DON'T BUY THIS BLOWER!!!
Don't waste your money on this blower, it is awful! The description states it has "gas like power" and I'm here to tell you that is a complete lie. It doesn't even have enough power to blow the grass off my sidewalk after I mow. I'm sick that I've wasted my money - - at $169 it wasn't cheap.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jason So far so good, but the battery on my 1mo old 40v Ryobi trimmer isn't working.
I like it. Mainly bought it for a spare battery, which is fortunate as my trimmer battery stopped working after less than a month. Fully charged, doesn't work. And, thank you Ryobi, for not having any sort of FAQ or Troubleshooting resource.
Taking it back to Home Depot today to see if they will just do a swap and not put me through some ridiculous return process.
Still, all that aside, I've loved the quality and power of my trimmer (and edger attachment) and blower.

Do Not buy this 40volt Ryobi blower! The battery will not recharge, and getting a replacement battery takes MONTHS because they are so backordered! Worked great 3x for us, then tried to recharge- NOTHING! Save your money!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Robert Very effective blower
We have a Stihl gas blower of equal size (a little heavier) and this Ryobi blows just as hard. Very convenient for quick jobs. We've read that the battery lasts about 15 minutes, and after blowing down a large porch, two large driveways, and the sidewalk in front our business, we have never had it run out of juice--just make sure you charge it when you're done! Very impressed with the effectiveness of this blower, highly recommended.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Nancy Not happy
I have had this blower less than a year and it has already quit working on me and I don't even use it that often. I thought the battery went bad so I purchased a new battery and it still does not work. I had a black and decker blower for 3 years and it still works but I wanted something with more power so I purchased this one. I guess I will go back to the black and decker one.
