Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Sherrose Good for small jobs
I'm 67 years old, a female and in pretty good shape but, I found this blower to be awkward to hold and was definitely tiring to my arms and hand when using it for more than a couple minutes. I had to keep switching hands. The blowing power was average but was okay for my use at blowing grass off the driveway and walk way. The best feature is that it can be used with AC power or the battery pack. There is limited amount of time before the fully charged battery slows down but that's to be expected I guess. Overall it was satisfactory for my use but if you're looking for more power and/or more heavy duty use I wouldn't recommend it.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Phergie Great for what it's intended to do
I had read all of the reviews on this product and knew it's limitations - it's not a heavy-duty leaf blower - it's meant for light "sweeping" jobs where you don't want to crank up the big heavy gas blower and don't want to have to drag a cord around on a high-velocity corded blower. I just needed something I can grab on a moment's notice to sweep up on the patio and around the pool - and this blower works perfectly for that application. I was a little disappointed in the battery life but I solved that by purchasing some extra heavy-duty One+ batteries to have on hand when one battery won't do the job. Overall - excellent product for the intended use!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by DYIGadgetGuy Very Weak
Doesn't blow very hard even with the small exit hole. Would onl recommend for blowing dust and dirt and maybe grass clippings. Charge doesn't last very long unless you invest in the VERY expensive batteries. I used to be a strong believer in Ryobi tools (I have over 20) but I have been running into some 'Lemons' with some of their products and Home Depot only has a 90 day replacement warranty - even if the item was used only once (or not at all). I will sometimes buy tools in advance of needing them and feel that it is Horrible Customer Service (for a Store Manager) to refuse to swap out a virtually brand new item). I have purchased several thousand dollars of tools from Home Depot. I will not be buying Ryobi anymore and I will not be shopping at Home Depot either. I guess being a Pro Member doesn't count for much...

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by netter wish i spent more money for a better one
The other reviews are true. This is sort of weak. I use it to blow leaves off my pool cover but it is not strong enough. The battery last maybe 20-30 minutes. Its better if you use power cord. I would not recomment this product. I've had it for about a year now.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Charisfrog AC/DC Blow It Away
No more frustration when the battery runs down, because I can plug up an extension cord and go electric to finish the job with ease. Those pesky autum leaves and fresh mown grass don't stand a chance in my yard. I love my Ryobi One products. Can't wait to add another to my growing collection.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TK Ryobi One+ 150 MPH 200 CFM 18-Volt Lithium-Ion Hybrid Cordless or Corded Leaf Blower/Sweeper
Works just fine. I use it regularly for blowing out the garage and driveway. 1 battery gives me approx. 20 minutes of continuous use. If I need more, I just plug an extension cord in and away I go. The blower seems to have even more power once plugged in. I do own other Ryobi products so I have extra batteries to use as well if needed.
This is a light duty blower. I don't think it would work well for blowing a yard full of leaves. But for my use, it woulds great!
Another plus... No more gas and oil mixing!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by CCTWMS65 Blower Meets Expectations - So far!
Bought this product to allow me more freedom of use without using a power cord. So far it has done the job satisfactorily. Light enough that my 6-year old grandson could handle it ok. Only issue seems to be a somewhat short "time of use" until battery discharges - definitely needs a back-up battery on hand, or use a power cord. Waiting for Fall's 'leaf drop' season for a better evaluation.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by robotman This really blows
I bought this blower to clear off the driveway and sidewalks after mowing grass. It definitely cleans them off. I found it also works great blowing sawdust out of the garage! I also bought it since I have other Ryobi battery operated devices and now I have extra battery for them. The smaller battery doesn't last as long as the bigger ones and that is the only drawback but having backup batteries solves that issue.
