Just purchased, unboxed and put the Ryobi 40V 20" snow blower together. The battery compartments are NOT big enough to fit a 6.0 Ah battery ( RYOBI 40V lawn mower comes with a 6 Ah battery). That was really the whole reason I decided to give this a try. Major design flaw. I'm going to return it.

Can you use larger 40v batteries in this snowblower? 6 or 7.5Ah?

Hi CommanderRoper Thanks for your inquiry. Yes, you can use the 6 Ah battery. Due to the size of the 40V 7.5 Ah battery (4.5 in. tall), it is not compatible with some of our other 40V products, such as the models below. 40V Snow Blower Models - RY40805, RY40850 40V Chainsaw Models - RY40502, RY40500, RY40511 40V Pressure Washer Model - RY40PW01BT 40V Mower Models - RY40108, RY40109, RY40100, RY40101, RY40104, RY40106, RY40107, RY40180, RY40190 We hope this information is helpful!

Just cleaned 6 inches from my driveway. 100 feet. By 20 feet. In the same time my neighbor used with his gas power blower. Only I didn’t need to mix gas last night Just made sure my battery was charging The battery lasted through the Driveway and walk If there is more than 6 inches or so I clean the drive after the first 6 inches. And again later. But that will change when I buy a second battery gonna buy the matching leaf blower so I’ll be using the batteries year round Great product. Don’t want to fool with gas cans in 20 degree weather ? This is for you.

Great little snow blower to have!
Customer review from ryobitools.com logo
I would have given it a 5 star rating, but have only had to use it twice so far. LOVE it! Will be interesting to see just how long the battery lasts on a charge. Worked great on our front deck with about 10" of snow [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

I purchased this last spring with hesitation. I have been mostly pleasantly surprised. This season included the snowiest February on record here in Minnesota. The machine cleared snow including plow piles and deep drifts as well as any 20" gas single stage blower i've owned. It is much lighter and easy for the family to use. Unfortunately just prior to the last big snowfall the battery became stuck in the active battery port. I cannot remove it. I attempted to remove the compartment door to get slightly more leverage and the spring that holds the door open shot into a snowbank and is gone. The battery is still stuck and I had to use my Gas Blower for the first time this year on what appears to be the last major snowfall of the year. Almost made it one full season before disappointment. Only other complaint (along the same line) would be Battery access. The doors make it difficult to properly align the batteries when installing and they get in the way during removal.

Good Value - Easy to use
Customer review from ryobitools.com logo
This is my second winter using this snow blower. We don't typically have harsh winters where I live, so this works perfect for me. The 40V 5 Ah battery works well for my driveway and walkways. I have found that using batteries less than the 5 Ah will cause the snow blower to struggle a little, but with the 5 Ah I've had no problems. It also struggles a little in icy snow, but that was expected. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

I only bought this because I have the 40v lawn mower and I was extremely impressed with it's performance so I figured I'd give this snow blower a shot. I live in Western NY and our winters can be extremely unpredictable so I still anticipated having to shovel quite a bit when we got heavy wet snow even after I bought this. Much to my surprise this little snow blower handles better than expected and is able to keep up with much more snow than anticipated (if you have the batteries for it). Similar to the mower, the big selling point for me was the ability to fold this blower up and carry it to the back of the garage over the vehicles. Any gas blower would have to be stored behind the house and would be that much harder to use. The perfect conditions for this blower are about 2" - 8" of powder. I have a 6 car driveway with a mild slope (my wife gets stuck with her van sometimes) and this thing can handle that much snow on a single 5ah battery. I was away for the weekend and came home to about 12" of semi-wet snow and with enough batteries this blower was able to tackle it (I have (2) 5.0Ah and (2) 2.4Ah). Granted, it doesn't handle the end of the driveway where the plows have pushed snow in (unless you chop it up) but it really did tackle the rest of it, even if I had to lift the front end up to get over the mounds of snow. It does struggle with any areas that are packed down by car tire tracks but you can either just run a shovel down those quickly loosen them or accept the fact that you're going to have a 1/2" of snow left after the blower is done. Another downside is the shoot adjustment handle can be tough to figure out but after my first few times using it, I haven't had any additional issues. For the price of this blower you really can't go wrong. As long as you understand that it won't chew through 18" of heavy snow and you need some extra batteries, it really is a great way to cut your shoveling time in half (or more).

This product worked as advertised. I reviewed a lot of snow blowers priror to buying this Ryobi battery-powered snow blower. It has met my expectations. It had a few issues getting all the way through the snow when I used it the first time, but it was a heavy, deep snow which I knew could be an issue based on the reviews. However, after a few passes, my entire drive way was clean and it only used about half a battery. This is my first of the Ryobi 40v line but it won't be my last I'm sure. Oh, and the head lights were really bright when I needed to use it at night. That's when I took the photo.

I actually bought this for my wife since she likes keeping up with the driveway when I am at work and she absolutely loves it. It does our entire driveway which is about 160 feet long on 50% of the battery. When it was 8" to 9" and sat overnight she ended up using about 1 3/4 batteries but it still got the job done. All in all we think it's worth every penny.

Customer review from ryobitools.com logo
Bought it just in time for a big snow and it worked great. I already had the 40v mower so I did not need to purchase an extra battery. I was the envy of the neighborhood. Did my driveway and part of another before having to change battery. Much lighter and easier to use than a gas one and no smelly gas or exhaust. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Used it for the first time the morning, we had apx 3 to 4 inches of wet snow. Performed great only getting clogged twice it was easy to clean out the block shute. Much easier than shoveling the sidewalks and double car driveway. The only thing that could make it better is self propelled, you do have to push..
