Do yourself a favor and buy the Ego backpack blower instead. You will spend a little more on the purchase but the quality and performance is far superior and, most importantly, your back will thank you after each use.

Why are many of the reviews for other products like the snow blower and the leaf vaccum?

How long does the battery charge last?

Asked by Rheanette December 13, 2020

Answers

Depends on the battery. I have 4A, 5A, and a 6A battery. The 4A battery lasts about 25 mins. The blower can take two batteries, and then it lasts about an hour (assuming not using boost). I can do both my yards with two batteries. Charging takes awhile, so it's worth having spares.

I already have three batteries . Can you get it without batteries

Tested this unit on a big warehouse. Had it running, on 2 batteries for 40-45 minutes before I had to quit. Had to quit because I was at work. Get a second battery and it will easily double your capability. The batteries were only down 50%. Expect it could have run longer.

Orlena winter storm
My first time to use the 21” unit and it took 4 fully charged 5ah batteries to plow my 2 400 feet sidewalks and driveway. There was about 8” of snow and it was a bit wet. At first start, it felt weird and heavy having no powered wheels to push the snowblower through the snow compared to my engine driven snow thrower that pushes through effortlessly. I suddenly missed my taken-for-granted briggs-stratton when I started using this Ryobi this morning. I will surely find time to tune my carburator so I can go back to the brute strength an engine driven, dual-stage snow thrower delivers. The Ryobi 21” is good for lighter snow and smooth sidewalks and driveways or uneven surfaces...definitely not for gravel driveways I had to stay well away from where the grass and the sidewalk meet...unlike...again, an engine driven snow thrower.

Junk
The parts did not snap together easily. It took 20 min to put 3 pieces together. This was after charging the battery for 4 hours. I was surprised to see it worked really well... for a whole 5 min until the battery died. If you can’t use a hand blower and need a backpack for 5 min job this is great but if you want a back pack blower for a job that takes longer don’t waste your $$.

Defective battery!
I read other reviews about this item coming with a bad battery. I didn’t think it would happen to me. Right out of the box I charged the battery. After three hours on the charger the steady green light indicated it was done charging but the lights on the battery were flashing, only two out of the four bars charged. The battery was also very hot to the touch! I ran another charging cycle and the same thing happened. I am very disappointed in this product. I am going to return it back to Home Depot!

Awesome power Ultra quiet
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I bought this Backpack Blower... The leaf vacuum mulcher... And the weed Whipper... For Father's Day 4myself... I used this Backpack Blower to clear a long to the Huron River... Blowing piles of leaves 18 to 24 in deep... I made light work of moving a lot of forest debris... I prefer quiet gardening work to the noise of gas-powered tools... Focus on the pruning and the details... These Quiet Electric Tools are the perfect asset to the gardener who prefers working with the sounds of nature... This blower is sufficiently powerful and yet very quiet... It's powerful enough to get the job done quick...

For My 3/4 acre yard this works great. I had some leaves that I haven't gotten up for a couple of years. Maybe longer. They were matted down and wet and this unit got them up with not problem. I wish the battery lasted a little longer but I think that when I get my leaves up this time, it will be much easier to stay on top of it with this leaf blower.

Gas like power
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Easy to use. Powerful, very good product. Highly recommend, no gas, no pulling to start it. Great machine!!!

Very Powerful!
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I am a High School Agricultural Education teacher at one of the largest high schools in SC. My duties as a teacher require me to use tools every day, all day long. I am very impressed with the power of the Ryobi Backpack Blower. I needed a blower that I could use both outside and inside our school shop, this blower handles both jobs with ease. This blower is so quite I can clean our school shop without disturbing other classes during the school day. I am also very impressed with the battery life as well, even when the Turbo Boost button is used. I would definitely recommend this blower to my friends, in fact I plan to tell all my teacher friends about it at our next teachers meeting in July!

Don't let the lack of noise fool you. It has power
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Ok, so when put in on my back for the first time and started blowing I thought it must lack power because of the lack of noise. It is SUPER quiet. So quiet it makes you think it doesn't have much power until you actually go hit some leaves and quickly realize it does have great power! I also really like the double battery ports which I didn't notice when I got it. With my additional spare battery it could easily take care of any large yards lawn care needs.

The best blower right now !!!
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I just bought this and I’m so glad i chose this one. Originally i had the EGO brand and then switched to the RYOBI brand which proved to be more versatile, while being more silent AND more powerful. The best purchase i’ve made yet!!!

A bit heavy but other than that my wife loves it
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] My wife really wanted a powerful backpack blower but wants to avoid anythingh that uses gas. Had it setup for her in about 30 minutes and out she went cleaning up the yard.
