One of my favourite "toys"
I love this blower. We downgraded from a high powered Ozito blow/vac with cord to this cordless Ryobi and I'm so glad we did. It's light and easy to use. We have a number of Ryobi products so already have batteries ready to go.
- No cord!
- No strap
- Unable to adjust strength of the "blow"...

Ryobi batteries are over sized and not user friendly for the average person...unless you have large hands
After struggling to release the battery from the charger with both hands the blower worked well but seriously trying to remove the battery from blower with two hands just wanted to throw it in the trash. Please please this battery is defiantly not user friendly. I also have purchased your lawn mower and line trimmer and find gardening is very frustrating using Ryobi equipment.
Purchased in September 2020 at Bunnimgs.
The blower was amazing. Bought in a deal with the line trimmer 2 years ago. Which was equally amazing. Just recently invested in the skin for Lawn mower too. Used it once. And guess what? Battery suddenly no longer works. Says it’s fully charged but won’t power any of my tools. Manufacturing date is clearly 2018 on the battery yet Ryobi refuses to honour 3 year warranty. I have no receipt, it’s been almost 2 years, but it’s obvious it’s faulty and obviously still within warranty. I am super annoyed. I now have 3 useless skins until I pay out over $150 for a new battery. My tip, perhaps choose the cheaper Ozito. I’ve never had any problem with their after sales service or warranty. Incredibly disappointed.

Don't purchase if you do what I do
I am very annoyed with myself, purchased our second robin blower after the first purchased unit died just after 12 months, battery was good blower was not. so on special I bought a second Ryobi the one package with a better, you guessed it now I have two batteries and two dud skins
I'm a dumbie because knowing the second would quit on me I forgot to put my Bunnings receipt in a safe place and honestly can not be bothered with chatting to the motorised staff at Bunnings if you get my drift
Anyhow as a guide we used the blower every second day and the once a fortnight to blow driveway, road at the front and about 50m of council walkway, think this would equate to roughly 3 years Service, then the thing dies
Purchased for $179.00.
Excellent home blower
Having come from a time where using a petrol 2 stroke blower 3 hours a day, to now using this little unit - it's honestly not that bad for its form factor and design.
The battery lasts for about 20 odd minutes, that's well enough for the usual size home. It's not overbearing in either weight or noise - no fumes or fuel spills or sore hand from vibration from extended use. Good grip from the overmolded TPU handle, easy to hold and comfortable.
While it doesn't have the power of a corded or petrol powered unit - the supplied 5.0amp battery is ...plenty enough to blow dirt, dust, grass clippings, dog hair, dry off the car to a degree, rid the pebblecrete of a majority of leaves and other crap. Battery charger is good and quiet quick, and the cable could do with a little more meat to stop it from uncontrollably kinking into a mess. Can't really fault it yet. I use it near every morning around the house or when needed. Edit 20200903 - battery was progressively getting worse in holding its charge - took back to Bunnings and was immediately swapped over for another "Version 2" and the battery easily lasts twice as long.

This blower blows! It's so easy to use and it's very convenient because it's cordless (just ensure the batteries go on charge when they are flat!). We have two batteries available for use. I am overall very happy with the product. We use it every couple of weeks. We only have a medium size space front and back garden and patio to do though!

Perfect tool for the garden
Bought this tool to reduce the amount of sweeping I needed to do. I find it exceptionally powerful, easy to use and good value for money. I can even use it to get the tree litter off my gazebo, bargain!

Great little machine
I was given this as a gift after complaining about the much larger plug in I have.
It's definatley alot lighter and so easier to use.
The battery only lasts about half an hour.
However for me it's enough.
Definatley not as powerful as the larger plug in ones. But it does the job I need for our larger paved patio and front area of the house which gets alot of leaf litter do I'm definatley happy.
Oh and another note our preschool aged son is terrified of the larger one we have and I can easily use this smaller more quiet one without terrorising him.

Battery pack lasts 20 minutes
Battery will only last 20 minutes
This means I have to purchase another battery, as one needs to be on charge all the time so that I can finish off a driveway.

Keep your receipts!
Onto the 3rd or 4th of these so far. It seems as if dust is sucked through the bottom vent and eventually wrecks the motor. My wife uses one for her work and they haven't lasted more than 3 months each.
#1. On/off switch broke after a few months
#2. Made a very strange noise
#3. Motor lost power and it just didn't work as well as the other one we had
#4. Still going but expect that this one will also need replacing after a few months of use.
On the other hand Bunnings exchange policy is excellent!

Always wanted a cordless blower.
Light, reasonably powerful air (cannot compare with corded ones of course). Easy n convenient, with a powerful battery. Good for tidying the patio and deck as well as the car.

Used one day.. returned the next day
I bought this machine as it was on special $107 down from $199. This included battery and skin, as the 5 V battery alone will cost around $150, as I was told. It was a good deal.
It was very light and so there are no cords attached to it. Battery is just enough for my medium sized yard. But this unit is not very powerful enough. I still have a Ozito corded 3 in 1 unit, which I bought around 5 years before which is still working well, except the vacuum and it has more grunt than the battery powered ryobl unit.
Ozito is way more cheaper and more powerful. I will buy another Ozito unit

This little beauty work really well!
My only regret is that I did not buy this blower when it first came out as I have been sweeping for way to long.
It's a little on the noisy side but all blowers are.
I use it almost daily and my driveway and walkway always look immaculately clean.
I even take in inside sometime to blow the dust from under the lounge suite which is awesome.
Strong blower, perfect for around the home
Good sized blower that is powerful enough to do most jobs around the home. Fits all your One+ 18v batteries in the range.
The Good: Blows a decent breeze, light weight unit. Good value for its price and durability. Backed by a 6 year warranty from Ryobi once you register your purchase online.
The Not-so-Good: The switch for on / off doesn’t naturally sit where the balance point is, so it’s a slight adjustment to turn it on or off (nit picking issue) and not a variable speed, but I usually know what I want to blow away before I hit it so not really an issue for me with this unit.
Overall, good price, very durable and does what it says on the tin. Would recommend.

Easy to use
I use my blower every weekend to clean up around the yard.
It's great for me as it isn't too heavy to use both on my verandah and then get down the stairs to the yard. Also the fact that it is cordless makes it a dream to use compared to my old clunky blower which always seemed to be getting caught on something.
I now have all Ryobi tools as the batteries are the same for all their products which is so helpful.

Questions & Answers
Is this lightweight efficient and cordless for an older man
Yes it's light weight....the battery is very hard to remove from both the charger and blower. It wasn't designed for the average hand and definatly no one with arthritis to remove. The only way I can remove the battery is with both hands while wrestling the vac with my legs
Someone here said he bought it on sale for $107 with a 5 Amp battery. But I never seen these on sale at Bunnings. Which date or month does it usually go on sale?
