- Handling: For those who are looking for a portable and convenient leaf blower, this model is a strong candidate. It’s designed for easy handling and use, and its size means it’s easily carried and stored. All told (including the battery), it weighs 9.2 lbs — the Ryobi P2180 is neither the lightest nor the heaviest cordless handheld blower on the market.

The Ryobi P2180's performance versus other blowers
The following charts are provided to give you an idea how the key specs of the Ryobi P2180 compare with handheld leaf blowers of similar voltage (between 18 and 24V).
- Upon exiting the nozzle, the air can reach speeds of up to 100 MPH, which is on the lower end for battery-operated handheld blowers between 18 and 24V. For the fastest air speed in this category, you may want to consider the Makita XBU07SM1, which can expell air at a velocity that can reach 143 MPH.
- It has a maximum air volume output of 280 CFM (cubic feet per minute). With this output rating, the P2180 is well within average in relation to similar cordless handheld blowers with a comparable voltage. If air volume is important to you, the RIDGID R01601K, with 510 CFM, could be in your good books.
- Autonomy-wise, with up to 20 minutes of autonomy on a full charge, the P2180 is on the low end when compared with other cordless handheld units of similar voltage. To enjoy the best possible autonomy in this category, you could have a look at the Kobalt KHB 4224A-03 which offers up to 50 minutes of runtime.
As you can see from this interactive chart, when compared to other cordless blowers, the Ryobi P2180 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.
