Overview of the Ryobi JET FAN RY25AXB

The Ryobi JET FAN RY25AXB in use

The Ryobi JET FAN RY25AXB

  • Power: The Ryobi JET FAN RY25AXB is a gas-powered leaf blower. It sports a max air speed of 160 MPH and a max air volume rating of 520 cubic feet per minute (CFM).
  • Handling: It’s handheld, so naturally it’s easier to handle and carry than larger leaf blowers, such as backpack models or walk-behinds. Be aware that, at 11.5 lbs, the Ryobi JET FAN RY25AXB is on the heavier side for gas-powered handheld blowers.
  • Engine: The engine boasts a displacement of 25 cc. Please note that, because the Ryobi JET FAN RY25AXB's engine is a 2-cycle one, it runs on a mixture of oil and gasoline. According to Ryobi, the proper fuel mixture ratio for this blower is 50:1.
  • Speed Settings: There are times when you only need a little more power, while other times you will want a bit more precision when clearing leaves and debris. For this purpose, the JET FAN RY25AXB offers variable speed settings, adding you, the user, more control, and a cruise control mode, which will allow you to maintain it comfortably for as long as you wish.
  • Noise: As far as gas-powered handheld blowers go, this one is average in terms of noise with a rating of 74 dB.
  • Fuel Tank: Its tank can hold 18 fl. oz., so it falls squarely in the average in terms of fuel capacity for handheld blowers.

The Ryobi JET FAN RY25AXB's performance versus other blowers

The following charts are provided to give you an idea how the key specs of the Ryobi JET FAN RY25AXB compare with similar leaf blowers.

  • Air expelled from the nozzle of this blower can reach 160 MPH. When compared to others of this type, the JET FAN RY25AXB has a lower air speed than most gas-powered handheld blowers. For the fastest air speed in this category, you may want to consider the Craftsman BV2500, which can expell air at a velocity that can reach 250 MPH.
  • The JET FAN RY25AXB is powerful, with an airflow rating of 520 CFM (cubic feet per minute). This is certainly on the high end compared to other gas-powered handheld blowers. If air volume is important to you, the Craftsman B225, with 650 CFM, could be in your good books.

Price comparison

As you can see from this interactive chart, when compared to other gas handheld blowers, the Ryobi JET FAN RY25AXB is on the cheap side of the price range.

It can therefore be a really good buy if you're looking to acquire a budget blower.

    I bought this blower about a year and a half ago. Used it normally (weekly lawn cuts, fall and spring cleanups, winterized during winter). This weekend, while I was using it, it started making loud noises, black shards of plastic came flying out and within seconds it froze up. After further inspection the shards of plastic were from the internal turbine fans. Not even sure how they could all come apart during use. When I went online, I saw that this was common in their electric version of the blower. Seems awful quality to me when I really only used it about once per week. Can’t imagine this working over a long summer with daily use.

    Called Ryobi support and they said there is nothing they can do but I was more than welcome to bring it to a nearby service repair shop (at my cost). Not happy….

    Switching brands now…

    + PROS: High power. Not too heavy
    - CONS: Quality seems low as it broke after 1.5 years of service.

    Very pleased with the jet fan blower untill the blower section failed. If Ryobe does not have a simple fix for it, this would make the design useless to the diy, crowd, which is the American buyer.T A Holaday

    + PROS: good blower
    - CONS: can't fix the blower section, well, that would be foolish that is an unforgiveable oversight.

    Bought the RY25AXB Dec. 2017 and it quit working July 2021 with minimal residential use (burned maybe 2.5 gallons of gas total). Warranty is for three years but I guess $119 really is not that much to throw away. I kind of glad it quit as it was extremely loud and the vibration caused me to have to change hands frequently because of pain ( always wondered if it accelerated arthritis in might right hand). Because of this experience I’ll probably never buy another Ryobi product. I’ll take it apart to see what failed and it can be a science fair project for a grandkid.

    + PROS: It's a cool color and worked ok for 3.5 years
    - CONS: Loud, heavy, vibrates, broke down in 3.5 yrs

    Bought this in 2018 and probably only used it 20 times in 3 years because I had another battery-powered blower. Started it the other day and let run for a few minutes while I got hearing protection. Suddenly it shut off and I went to pull the rope and it wouldn’t budge. Took the rope starter assembly off thinking it was jammed, only to find out the crankshaft wouldn’t turn by hand and I heard a rattling sound inside the engine, so I can only assume the piston rod broke. I only ever ran this on pre-mix canned gas. What a POS… One month out of warranty too.

    + PROS: Powerful
    - CONS: Heavy Noisy Vibration
