Answer This Question

A:  Hello, Janson - Thank you for your question. If you used no lubrication the unit may be damaged. I would recommend emptying the fuel tank and using the correct mixture to see if the tool still works. If it seems it is not working properly then the tool will need a service center. I hope this helps! Additionally, if you need further support, then a RYOBI Customer Experience Professional is here for you, Monday - Friday from 9 am to 6 pm (EST) when you call or text us at 1.800.525.2579 or through email or live chat when you visit us at https://www.ryobitools.com/support/contact.

      Answer This Question

      A:  As long as it is maintained properly it will start just fine, my wife and 12 year old daughter can start it without issue. Just remember to prime it first.

          A:  Hello, Mosully - Thank you for your question. It would depend on your strength. This blower is started by pulling the starter grip and rope sharply until the engine attempts to run. I hope this helps!

            A:  Yeah, it's pretty easy. I have had mine for over a year and it starts with 3 moderate pulls

              A:  I owned one of these very briefly. It started just fine without much effort and ran for about 20 minutes. Then I noticed a burning smell which was the plastic shroud around the exhaust. It was starting to melt. Everything was secured and in place as it should be, but the shroud was still melting. Shortly there after the machine started to run poorly. I shut it off and checked it over. I then attempted to start the machine, but now it would no longer run normally. It would only run if it was fully choked. If I tried to open the choke the engine would just die. Adjustments to the fuel mixture made no difference. I removed the spark plug and even replaced the spark plug to no avail. Finally I returned it to Home Depot as a favor to myself. I then bought a better brand and have been happy ever since.

                    Broken right out of the box
                    I just assembled this unit out of the box, purchased today. Filled with premixed fuel and ready to start for the FIRST time. First pull and the string does not retract. Stuck out and no way to start. Very disappointed and will be getting my money back for both the unit and the fuel. Don’t waste your money on this piece of junk. Spend the extra $ and get a reputable brand

                        Blows my leaves very well!
                        [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Prior to using this gas leaf blower, I was using an electric leaf blower that did just an OK job with blowing my leaves, and it hurt my arms to carry around the yard. As a result, I purchased this Ryobi gas backpack leaf blower. This tool was my first one that is gas-powered, so initially my husband and I felt a little scared about fire hazards, but my first use of this product eased our minds. The instruction manual was easy to follow, so I was able to easily assemble the leaf blower in a few steps. I then poured a pre-mixed 50:1 gas/oil (purchased separately) into the tank, and I figured out how to turn on the leaf blower and use the throttle. The box contained all necessary parts except for sufficient gas/oil, safety glasses, and ear protection. I feel very happy that this gas backpack leaf blower blows my leaves with much airflow, and it very quickly clears a large area of my yard. Furthermore, the shoulder straps are padded and adjustable, so they are comfortable for me as a small woman to wear, and the strap and clasp around the chest helps the shoulder straps to stay on. I expect the shoulder and chest straps to fit my large husband as well. After using this leaf blower for a couple of hours, I had no back pain. The only advantage that my electric leaf blower has is its vacuum that sucks up leaves, which this gas leaf blower does not have, but I can always use the two together.

                          Flex bellow cracked after 3rd use
                          A great blower. Too bad there is a major design flaw. The flex bellow is made of a cheap and brittle plastic. Not actually a failure in design, but in the choice to use a cheap material. This part should be made of a durable, rubber like material.

                            WASTE of money and the warrant is a JOKE
                            AVOID! Dead after a year! HD charged $30 for estimation and then ask $170 for repairing. Has been following the instructions and using the mixed fuel but once it is dead they will tell you it is your bad! Worst experience ever!

                                Huge Time Saver
                                [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Let me first say, our front yard area is a " catcher's mit " for the enormous Maple trees on the opposite side of the street. The amount of leaves would drain two to three batteries from my previous leaf blower. Use a rake you say, my entire front yard is a rock garden theme. In short, the first use of the " Hurricane " velocity generated from the agile beast of a back pack style blower cut down the actual time so dramaticly I chose to clear my neighbor's front yards as well, still had fuel left over in the tank. Most gracious for the incredible engineered tool from Ryobie. Price is exceptional for the time saved and results. Greatly appreciated, thank you Ryobi.

                                  Flex Tube Tore Apart so soon
                                  I Bought this blower about 4 months ago and the flex tube already ripped. Cheap plastic? It’s my first back pack blower and I was really excited at first until it started to rip. Overall, it’s a power blower. Odd design to it though.

                                    Flex hose ripped twice
                                    So far this has worked well with the exception of the flex hose. It tore once so I cut it and refit the hose. It has now torn a second time. I plan to see if the warranty will cover a replacement of that part. Otherwise, I will try to find my own solution/replacement. The blower itself seems to work fine.
