Rated 1.0 out of 5.0��by Steve After one month, the pull cord jammed. Took it back to Home Depot to swap out, which they did. After 2 months, the new unit jammed. Home Depot would not swap. At 2 different stores, the Home Depot repair staff said that the Ryobi's were poor quality - that they frequently jam or other issues. They both also said Home Depot shouldn't be selling them because they are so bad. I also called a certified Ryobi service center in Dallas - they said same thing - poor quality, Home Depot shouldn't sell them, and I shouldn't have bought it. Would have been nice to have been told that by Home Depot when I bought it instead of when I brought it in for service. So now it's in shop, we'll see if Ryobi honors warranty.
I liked that it was 4 cycle, but since 2 crapped out with 3 months, it's pretty poor.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0��by Tman Pull starter broke after a just over a year of residential use. Ryobi cheeped out...its a plastic part against the metal starting plate. The plastic breaks after repetitive pulls and you have to disassemble the entire machine to get the the part. (high labor cost) Not the quality you expect from Ryobi...would spend a little more $ to avoid the hassle.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0��by Jim Good leaf blower
The leaf blower was ready to go except for putting on the two blower tubes which were simply "twist on" attachments. Fill with oil (supplied), pour in the "treated" gas, set the choke, pull the cord 1-2 times and it fired right up. NO MIXING GAS AND OIL is a GREAT thing!
The only draw back that I've noticed is the way it "sucks" your clothing when you hold it in your right hand (I know it says to hold it in front of you, good luck with that). Also, it seems to use more fuel than my old 2 cycle model.
I've only used it twice since the purchase so, it's early yet for a knowledgeable review.
I'm doubtful of the 155 MPH velocity but, sufficient.

First month cam broke. Fixed under warranty (Took 6 weeks). 18 months later pull start clutch system broke. Out of warranty and Ryobi refused to repair as it was out of warranty. Waste of money. Buy something else.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0��by MrBo Great Blower. Share with Neighbor.
Not sure why others have trouble with this Ryobi product. Like others, my wife and I enjoy it. She is only 5'3" and 107lbs., so she needs both hands most of the time to handle the weight and power of this beastly blower. But she enjoys the grass and "stick moving" power. Our neighbor even borrows it since it's a beast of a blower ... Plus, no oil mixing hassle and more powerful than those weeny 2-cycle and battery-powered jobs. Buy this model if you can handle power ... and have power tool savvy.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0��by lllinton 4 stroke blower
I was very tired of mixing gas and oil for my yard tools so I was happy to see the 4-stroke model from Ryobi. It is definitely the most affordable one I have seen to date as well as the most widely available. So far it has started and run reliably and performs as well as the 4 or 5 2-stroke models that I've owned in the past. I have never had a 2-stroke blower last more than a couple of years so time will tell the tale of this one [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

My wife and I both use this blower and are very happy with it. Wife suggests that there is an additional handle on the top like a chain saw to make it easier to hold as it is a bit heavy for her. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
