Ryobi v Dyson
We had a similar Dyson stick vacuum and was just say "Average" and the battery power did not last long only around 20 minutes.
The Ryobi is heavy but you adapt. The battery lasts long enough to do the whole house.
50% of the floor is timber and the other 50% is slate and a few rugs.
For this type of flooring a very good product.
With cleaning, I just remove the whole canister each time, remove the filters, empty canister and then use my Ryobi battery blower to clean the filters.
Too many -neg’s to make a +pos
Purchased @ Bunnings. Tried and tested thoroughly before returning for full refund.
- puts together easily/plu and play
- two power settings for batt pwr preservation. Though if you bought ryobi you’ll probs have a couple so it doesn’t matter too much
- great length for tall people (I’m just over 6’)
- adds to your exercise regimen with multi walks to bin and weightlifting. Do swap hands
- easy ish to clean the unit....up to a point.
Neg-s: design flaws across the unit.
- catch capacity is dismally inadequate. Dust/dirt drops back down through pipe/through head onto floor if you’re not watching. Spent many return trips to bin. ...
Worst stick vac I have ever used.
Worst stick vac I have ever used. after only about 30 seconds of use it looses suction and then spits out everything it's already sucked. I don't believe any of the positive reviews on here as it definitely does not have a high suck even right at the start when empty.
Purchased for A$349.00.
Bought not long ago and was impressed by suction. Used regularly with a 5amp battery.
A little on heavy side so prob better with a 2amp battery for weight.
Lot cheaper than Dyson with comparable effectiveness according to Choice.
wow. This is so powerful.
I think people complaining about not powerful should upgrade their battery as 5AH battery and upward gives more power to perform. This gets all the tiny particles in carpet. Yes it's bit noisy like a jet engine but this is the tool for me. Only cons would be bin size.
Don’t believe the positive reviews
Vinyl planking & low-pile carpet. It became evident in the first few weeks that we had been duped by the online ratings as this vacuum did not live up to the hype.
This unit should come with complimentary hearing protection!
On-board tools are not very versatile, the wand connections very difficult to pull apart.
When you turn it off and pick it up, all dirt stuck in the head unit falls back onto the ground.
Flimsy and not durable, spinning turbo head no longer spins, meaning it has limited suction ability
The only good thing about this stick vacuum was the battery life.
Did I mention noisy?!

A great cordless stick vac and the ability to use my Ryobi One batteries is icing on the cake
This is a very good stick vac. Replaced a Hoover stick vac with this vac and it is chalk and cheese. Picks up way more stuff out of the carpet. Cleaning out the dust canister is easy. Cleaning the filter is a bit more effort but straightforward. Using the Ryobi One batteries is great - if I run out of juice half way around the house I just slip on the second battery and keep going. Highly recommended.
Purchased this stick vac about 12 months ago and use it on all sorts of surfaces in our cleaning businesses.
Positives are ease of use and dual mode power head (on/off), although a little heavy with a 6AHR battery. It does CGD and loop pile carpets with ease and switch off the power head for hard surfaces. Battery changing is awesome and emptying the box is easy. Parts are easy to get.
Negatives are the noise is a little piercing and loud. The entrance to the filter box is a bit small and sometimes get blocked. Not great on really thick carpets. Performs better than most other stick vacs in the price bracket and using the batteries from the other 18v one+ Range is a bonus.

Lightweight and easy to use.
I really like this vacuum cleaner, it's great for stairs, great for my car because it's cordless and can be made into a hand held vac. It has a brush and crevice tool with an attachment to keep them altogether in the stick so you don't lose them. There is a stand so that you can create a charging station and the battery last longer than a lot of other cordless vacs. It has enough guts to do my carpet and then slides easily over my tiles for that quick clean.
Questions & Answers
Overall I am not unhappy with the Ryobi on carpet.. it seems to fluff up the carpet nicely and is easy to use.. (much better than having a cord).. but I really struggle with getting the right combination of the filter and pre-filter in.. are there any sites to look at how to install? It needs cleaning out every time I use it, so it would be great to get this sorted?
Mine came pre-installed... And you are not supposed to wash the paper filter but can wash the prefilter. I have actually taken it apart many times to wash the plastic dust box as well with no problem.
Have a look at the picture on your manual and see if you can find clues. If things fit nicely, then you should be on the right track. If you have to force things in, then chances are you're probably not doing the right thing.
