The RIDGID R8604301B's performance versus other blowers

The following charts are provided to give you an idea how the key specs of the RIDGID R8604301B compare with similar leaf blowers.

  • The air speed of the RIDGID R8604301B maxes out at 105 MPH. While more than adequate for many jobs, its air speed is below average among other battery-operated handheld blowers (the one expelling air at the fastest speed being the Makita XBU01PT with 208 MPH).
  • As this unit is rated at 280 CFM (cubic feet per minute), it expells less air than most cordless handheld leaf blowers (the biggest expelled air volume belonging to the Poulan Pro PRB675i with 675 CFM).
  • Users can expect an autonomy of 20 minutes from its battery, which means the R8604301B won't run as long as many other cordless handheld units before needing to be plugged in (the one with the best autonomy being the EGO POWER+ 580 CFM LB5804 with up to 180 minutes of runtime).

Price comparison

As you can see from this dynamic chart, when compared to other cordless handheld blowers, the RIDGID R8604301B is on the cheap side of the price range.
