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 Consumer Reports Best Buy! As you can see from all of the accolades above me here, this is a terrific leaf blower! Light weight, easy starting, comfortable to wear and MAN does it blow leaves, debris and just about anything you want!! The price for the power and features is excellent. I have a Ryobi weed whacker with edger attachment and it has been on the job since 1997. I have every confidence that I will get the same great service from this RY08420 as well. If you're in the market for a backpack leaf blower, you've found the one! October 28, 2013
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 5 out of 5 by Awesome blower!! I had a Husqvarna hand held blower that I bought last fall and I could not stand it... hard to start, it would hurt my back after blowing leaves for a short time. I saw the price on this Ryobi and figured I'd give it a shot. It turned out to be a great choice!!! I was surprised that it fires up first time every time when you follow the directions! The Husky would start only after blasting it with starting fluid. This thing is comfortable to wear, very comfy after blowing leaves for an hour! Last but not least, it blows much better than any of my old blowers, even wet leaves!! This blower is a steal!!! Also, it seems to be really good on gas! October 12, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Worth it. I had a handheld that crapped out. After a bit of research, this easily was the best value. I was a bit skeptical because of the price, but I have other Ryobi tools that are reliable. This has really good power - easily can do the yard, and I was able to blow off a good stretch of hiking trails in the woods. Light and comfortable so I ran it for a while, only stopping for gas. My son can even handle it. July 2, 2013
