Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Blower I live in Pennsylvania and it's fall. No explanation beyond that needed for my purchase of a blower. The blower was very easy to assemble and I had it together and running in about fifteen minutes. It works as advertised. One small issue that I will echo from other reviews is the restart after a fuel up. The blower starts very easily when it's cold but restarting once its hot takes a bit more effort. However that is a very small issue to me and I've been using the blower quite a bit so far. I would recommend this product for the average homeowner but not for any commercial use. October 21, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product I was looking for a good leaf blower and this one was on sale for 189$. Read the reviews and sounded like a great product. Brought it home, put some mixed gas in it. Pumped the ball 6 times and it fired right up. This thing blows air strong. It gets the leaves, pine needles, etc and throws it 10'. The only thing I wish would be better is throttle control. If you pull full throttle it bogs down. You have to slowly go full throttle to prevent that. It is light weight, comfortable straps, not quiet but that is to be expected. October 4, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Grat Packpack blower! I got this packpack blower on Oct. 24 and have used it about 10 times since then, every 2-3 days. First it was the acorns falling and now the leaves are in freefall! I have a corner yard with a lot of trees both front and back. The blower was easy to assemble and seems to work well. The starting instructions are printed on the unit so that's a handy thing to have. Following the instructions the blower is easy to start and certainly has a good amount of power. I got this based on the site reviews and the Consumer Reports recommendation. If the blower holds up over the long term I'll certainly be very satisfied. November 10, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by This thing is AWESOME! i am a 64 yr old woman, 5' 4", weight 130 lbs who does the yard work. We have a hilly 1/2 acre of pines, oaks and other leaf shedding trees. What used to take me hours with the handheld blower now only takes me half the time. This blower isn't heavy, once I adjusted the straps to fit me and I got over being nervous about strapping a running motor to my back, it was fantastic! Talk about moving leaves both wet and dry, I was overjoyed! It took us about 20 minutes to put together, it started on the first try and while I've only used it once, I can hardly wait to use it again. No more dragging extension chords around and having to rake large piles of leaves when the old blower couldn't move them any further. I am one happy camper. Thanks Ryobi for making a product that lives up to my expectations. January 2, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great blower for the price I didn't hesitate to buy this owning some other ryobi products. Comparing the mph and the cfm tomother blower that are twice the cost this seemed like a good buy. I was more then impressed. Even with long grass and damp leaves this had no problem moving piles and the vibration was very minimal. Recommend hearing protection but that is with all blowers. Great deal would buy this for freinds and family as a gift if needed. Plus the three year warranty can't be beat. October 11, 2014
