Rated 4 out of 5Â by davejs777 Great for home use
I bought this blower to use with the ryobi one battery system I already have from previous purchases. I purchased it online and had it delivered to the store. It came 2 days earlier than expected. It came unexpectedly in a plain unmarked brown box with no ryobi labeling.
I put it together very quickly as it only had 3 parts that snapped together. The blower tube is ever so slightly loose where it snaps into the main unit. It has a great handle grip and does not cause any fatigue while using it on my driveway or sidewalk. I also find it very handy to use on my deck to blow wet leaves or debris off of it. It has enough power while using the lithium ion 18v batteries. It is a hybrid that can be plugged into an extension cord but I have no plan on using it in that manner because I like the freedom of using it cordless. Its not perfect but for the price I think it is worth it. I would recommend to the average homeowner.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by rriese Good little blower
This is a good little blower. It's lightweight so no issues there. I use it to clear leaves & debris from my driveway and deck. I got tired of using a broom. I've only used it with the battery so far. Be careful of your expectations. This is not a high-powered leaf blower but it is great for the smaller jobs. If the leaves were wet I doubt this would be able to handle it. I'll have to try it. Battery life has been pretty good. I have two batteries so if one gives out I just charge it and use the other. I use this every week and I am quite happy with it.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by ChWe OK for small jobs
Good for small jobs like lawn clippings. Great for clearing walks after mowing. Would not want to try and use it for clearing leaves. Blower has a very loud high pitched whine. Hearing protection is a must.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Hilde Convenient and practical
I have a large gas blower for when I need to move a lot of heavy and wet debris, but this works great for loose lighter work. Think of it as a broom that is light and always ready to sweep my walkway, driveway, and patio. The gas blower is a pain for my family members and I see them grabbing this for all of their quick needs. I find it works better without the high velocity nozzle because the volume of air increases and it performs better for general cleaning. I have plenty of batteries always charged and ready to go so I have not used the hybrid electric option yet.
