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.

Great for the money
I bought this blower well over a year ago and decided to wait to do my review. It’s easy to love something when you first get it and haven’t tested it. However after years worth of use I LOVE my blower! It starts up easy and has a ton of power!

Amazing quality
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I abosuletly love this blower! Way more strong compared to the stihl handheld I had. I would buy and buy this thing over and over again. I would highly recommend to anybody. Prices a good. Definitely not cheaply built either. I will now start buying all ryobi tools from now on

Power to Spare
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] You could not wipe the smile off my face. I have been content these last 27 years with my PB-200 handheld 2 cycle blower. Only because I did not know any better. It blew the large Oak Tree leaves at my homes in CT and ME. I thought 3 hours twice a week for a clean yard was not bad. I have since moved to South Carolina and I know have 2-1/2 acres with 31 trees including 2 Pin Oaks, 1 Water Oak and 3 Persimmon trees. Pin Oak leaves and small narrow little buggers that get trapped deep in the grass. Now It is easily 3 or 4 hours every day. But it needs to be done if you want a clean yard and healthy grass next spring. My wife said, “enough is enough all you do is blow leaves everyday”. She did her research and knows I own [and like] Ryobi tools. She picked the RY38BP Backpack Blower as a gift for me this Christmas. I gave a big smile and was grateful she thought a more powerful blower would make my job easier. I was skeptical that it would be heavy to blow leaves for 3 or 4 hours. It is surprisingly light, and the shoulder harness is well padded. I’m 6”1” and 210 pounds so I wish the lower wings were a little bit longer, but they are still comfortable. The real joy is the power and the variable speed I can control with the trigger. Sometimes you don’t want or need full power. A pile of large fluffy leaves blows almost as fast as I can walk, and those Pin Oak leaves jump right out of the grass. I use to have to wait 2 or 3 days after the rain so the leaves would be dry enough to blow. Now the wet leaves stuck to the ground under a pile are no problem. The best I can tell you is buy it you won’t be dissapointed

Ryobi products are bad .
Bought this two years ago ,and returned first one ,do to bad carburetor . Only use it in the fall . Well so far had to change pull cord twice . This week ,It just stopped running , tried to start it ,and pull cord would not move . Took off the top to check it , noticed fan was sagged a little . So I took of the bottom ,and the plastic was cracked around the fan . I have also purchased the gas trimmer a few years ago,and returned it because of oil leaking through carburator ( reviews had stated the same problem ) . Last year bought the battery trimmer ,works good ,but the spool edges keep wearing out ,so you cannot use the wrench to do fast refill . This is shame that this company sellls these products .I will not buy another Ryobi.

Pretty Surprised
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I have a lot of Maples, Sycamore, White Pine in my yard. I enjoy them Spring, Summer and Fall, but when its time to clean them up it can be a daunting task. But after purchasing this blower it was a quick and efficient project this year! It worked like a champ and gave me more time for other things. It has been the fastest clean up ever since buying my home 28 years ago. Should have gotten this sooner!
by JimsWoods
Good power
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I was very pleased with my Ryobo leaf blower. I had used an electric blower for years and found this had had a good deal more power. It wasn’t as noisy as I was led to believe in some other reviews and was much quieter than my lawn mower for example. It also had adjustments to the bottom and top of the back straps so I was able to get a comfortable fit. I am not a large person but the weight was not hard to handle. Good product at an affordable price. I would definitely recommend.

Good at first!
I have a one acre lot with 91 huge hardwoods that drop tons of leaves in the fall. Plus a 90’ cement driveway with adjoining flower beds. Plus 400 sf deck. So I keep a blower going year round. Bought my first Ryobi backpack BP42 six years ago. I was impressed by the power...but not the endurance. It lasted 3 years and blew the PAPER carburetor gasket. Would have cost $139 to fix, so I opted for a new one, same model. Same experience. Exactly. After 3 years, blown gasket. Will be buying something else this time.
