Accurate performance for price. ,
It’s a little unwieldy but I am a big strong beast of a man so it’s not an issue .
It sucks well as long as the material - leaves etc are dry !
Need to empty when the bag is half full for good performance anyway ,
It’s greatest feature is switch from blow to suck in. A second !
More noise than vacuum
Very much a disappointment after several other garden tools from this brand. Can't inhale gum nuts, liquid amber nuts.Extremely noisy. The inlet and blower are located together causing some blowback of dust and fine particles. Just a bit flimsy for household use.
Ryobi blower/vac - RBV2400ESMP - don't buy this
Bought mine at Bunnings - and have various Ryobi battery tools (won't consider any more now). Ryobi marketing of this plug in electric Blower/Vac makes a big deal of the unit having a stainless steel impeller, the problem is its held onto the shaft by a nylon nut which deforms (turning force) and then allows the impeller to go out of balance (vibration) rendering the unit useless. Pretty bad design IMO.
Lasted 2 minutes
Out of the box, I started using the vacuum and after collecting a few leaves, it sucked up a stick (about 1cm thick and 20cm long). This got caught in the extraction fan and burnt the motor out. Completely dead. I got less than 2 minutes use from this machine.
Plugged in and tested unit (fan) was working before assembly. Worked ok. Assembled all the pipes and attached to electric unit. Plugged in and fan did not work. Took it back to Bunnings and exchanged for another one. Same thing happened. It was a consideably dearer than the standard Ryobi blower/vac. Paid a premium price and was very very dissapointed because it had all the extra features we were looking for e.g. plug in, wheels, two speed fan.
Experince has put me off buying Ryobi in the future.
Died within a month
Product has died within a month of use, was purchased at Bunnings store.
Ryobi after sales service sucks in australia, there website leads to generic lawn mower repairs with horrible customer service.
A bit heavy to use
Blower is good
Vacuum not so good as it doesnt pick up fine leaves and has to be put really close to the ground to be of any use.
- Verified purchase
Very poor design of the bag connection
The bag is good, however, it is not hermetically sealed in the connection to the main body. When vacuuming, the shredded litter is blown out around the plastic collar on the bag. This is because there is no washer to seal between the yellow plastic (just where the black snout is connected to the yellow main body) and the black plastic collar on the bag. This is a major omission in the design of this otherwise not too bad garden vacuum cleaner. Bunning replaced under warranty the first machine, however the replacement is even worst!!! Ryobi, please remedy this faulty design and improve your reputation. In the mean time, choose a different brand...

Awesome blower, terrible vac. Metal impeller / mulcher exploded after 20 minutes use
Bought a Ryobi RBV2400ESMP blower vac yesterday for general yard clean up works. Was hoping to generally vac my driveway using the wheeled vacuum 'patio head' but had more success blowing everything to a pile and vacuuming from there, or so I thought.
The blower works really well, especially after removing the top vac tube. Makes the unit quite lightweight with good power.
As for the vacuuming, it's awful. I've got a few Jarrah trees that drop nuts, maybe 10mm or so in size. Whilst vacuuming the pile consisting of nuts & grass clippings..., the metal impeller / mulcher exploded into several pieces. The force blew off the blower air intake cover. It also cracked the outer casing as the impeller tried to 'break free' and I was quite fortunate the metal fragments remained contained within the housing. Total use - blower - 10 minutes vacuum - 10 minutes Took it back in pieces and got a refund no questions. I'm definitely not going to try out another of these considering how close this one came to disaster.
