                Cheap, overpriced garbage
                This blower is three months old. Has not been use much has always been hard to start. There's no place to grab the unit and pull the cord except for the handle on top of the back harness well that finally broke today cheap flimsy, plastic material not a fan of Ryobi anymore.

                  2 cycle leaf blower
                  [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I bought this leaf blower about a year ago and the flex bellows split on me. The leaf blower itself is great but the bellow splitting is causing me to rate this a two.

                    Would buy better
                    Relatively good blower but not the best RYOBI has. The Blower Bellows Flex Tube broke within a year and forced me to buy a replacement.

                      Junk with no support
                      ok for 1 year before the lower frame (the plastic at the bottom that holds the blower) broke off in 2 places beside 2 of the 3 screws that hold it together. Ryobi CS for outdoor said contact local repair place. They charge $40 to look which RYOBI may not cover and they take weeks to evaluate, part takes weeks, then more to install. Spending the rest of the summer waiting for my leaf blower to be evaluated and maybe repaired is not adequate. RYOBI lost my business. DEWALT is next.

                        Great when it worked, but cheap plastic breaks
                        The unit was great when it worked. I went to use it for the first time this spring and as other reviewers have stated the plastic clips that connect the backpack to the engine completely snapped off when pulling the pull cord. It's kept indoors, no reason plastic should be that brittle so soon! I contacted the nearest service center and they said they didn't want to do anymore Ryobi warranty work for the foreseeable future because Ryobi is being a pain to work with.

                          Pull Cable Breaks
                          If you are going to buy this, just be prepared to have to take it apart to replace the pull cable. I’ve had two of these and I’ve replaced the cable multiple times on each. I have lots of gas powered tools and this is the only one that breaks like this. At this point I’m just going to throw it away.

                            Buyer Beware...They Catch Fire
                            I have this exact model. It caught fire where the muffler exhausts. The shroud in that area heats up and ignites.

                              Disappointed
                              [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I was gifted this about a year ago as a birthday present and used it for one season. The blower was stored in a garage during the off-season. During my use this past fall, the unit caught fire. The fire was not due to a gasoline leak but rather occurred on the opposite side of the unit than the gas ‘tank’. I have no idea what caused the fire. The blower is now trash. It was a good unit while it worked. I’m very disappointed in this product due to the short life. Not sure I’d get another.
