Can you tell me how much this leaf blower weigh?

Haven't weighed it but lightweight as far as I am concerned considering the power of it. LOVE IT! It does a terrific job of moving mass amount of leaves and debris.

Can direction adapter be bought for this

Asked by MG57 September 30, 2019

Answers

i don't know but i don't believe so..... best to cal the manufacturer..... because this is a much lighter machine it is much easier to maneuver and the directional is not as critical. if you could picture, it's almost like using a very poweful hand held,which you can easily direct, but it's on wheels and light weight..... of course not quite as easy to direct as hand held but pretty good.

Does the front wheel pivot? From the picture is doesn't look like it does.

No, but the unit is so light it can easily be pivoted on the front or rear wheels.

Is there anyway to swap out the plastic wheels for rubber wheels.

Anything can be done with creativity and patience. This unit, typically, will not be an everyday use item. The wheels should last a good long time, with proper care.

Greatest leaf blower ever.
Customer review from homedepot.ca logo
This is a must have addition to the outdoor equipment needed to maintain your property. It is well built, easy to use and has enough force to clear a 6 ft swath of heavy leaf cover. I’m surprised it isn’t more readily available as an in store item. I was able to easily do an area of leaves in a 100x129 ft area in an hour. It may appear to be a bit on the light side but don’t let the appearance fool you...it’s a real workhorse.

Seeds Program Review
(What's this)
I have a great hand held blower. Now I have a great little RYOBI walk behind blower. It is great that it's a full crank, 62cc, 2 cycle engine at fifty to one (50-1) gas mix as my other 2 cycles. The throttle control on handle is great so you can blow hard or softly. The wheels are also of good size. With an 850 foot gravel driveway, I find it easier to pull the RYOBI behind me, but I can push it in tight areas ! With the hand held's help the driveway blowing is now a lot easier ! I highly recommend !! see photos !!

Seeds Program Review
(What's this)
The Ryobi blower comes nearly fully assembled, requiring only four bolts to attach the handle. The handle grip is comfortable and the "tricycle" wheel design allows for quick and easy steering. Instructions for use are well written and the steps for startup are also printed on the engine for quick reference if you forget. Startup is a two step process needing two separate series of pulls on the starter. The airflow is powerful, adequately clearing the width of a normal driveway from standard debris. The number of passes needed to blow off a lawn will depend upon the type of debris and length of the grass. I am able to walk at a normal pace without having to slow very much in areas of greater accumulation. The blower is able to clear the end of my driveway in one pass from road debris, dirt, small branches and leaves. The throttle handle gives quick response to decrease airflow as needed when I don't want to disturb nearby areas (such as mulch in a garden bed). The blower is a bit noisy at full power so use ear protection. My one negative is the air discharge is fixed to the right. I would like to be able to redirect it "on the fly" toward the front (or the left) much like a snow thrower in order to save maneuvering. All in all though it is a quality machine that is easy to use and gets the job done.

Seeds Program Review
(What's this)
I have a 2 acre property with many trees so there is constant clean up especially in the fall. I wanted a reasonably priced walk behind blower. This machine came with very little assembly required (4 bolts). I had it assembled in running in less than 20 minutes. It started on the 2nd pull and ran great. The machine puts out a large amount of focused air and It easily blew all of the leaves, acorns, pebbles off of my driveway with ease. It should be great for the fall leaves. The machine is a bit loud when at full throttle but reasonable at idle. The machine is very light in weight and easy to maneuver and push with its large plastic wheels. Though the motor and assembly seem sturdy and well built the wheels are plastic as well as the throttle handle. For this price point this is a good machine for home use.

Hello, vaca - We are sorry that you're having trouble restarting your blower! Would you mind sending us an email at reviews@ryobitools.com? Let's talk about this further, so we can provide you with a good solution.
Nearly Impossible to tart and harder to keep running
This is my 3rd season with this machine. I liked the lightweight design and simple assembly but I couldn't get it started out of the box. Took it to a Ryobi service center and was told I used "bad" gas and the machine was fine, charging me $40 for the "service". I got it to run for a bit the 2nd year by adjusting the plug gap to .0265 and now this year it won't run at all. I have a Ryobi 2-cycle string trimmer that's 15 years old and a Ryobi 2-cylce chain saw that is 10 years old, both are decent machines but this one had been a dud since day one.

Flooding Frustration
Constantly floods --- will run wide open once you get it going and then will flood and stall if you let it idle more than 30 seconds. Then it will take forever to get it started again. Has been like this out of the box
