The Ryobi P21100's performance versus other blowers

The following charts are provided to give you an idea how the key specs of the Ryobi P21100 compare with similar leaf blowers.

  • Maxing out at 110 MPH at full power, this blower is on the lower end in terms of air speed for battery-operated handheld blowers. For the fastest air speed in this category, you may want to consider the Makita XBU01PT, which can expell air at a velocity that can reach 208 MPH.
  • It has a maximum air volume output of 410 CFM (cubic feet per minute). With this output rating, the P21100 is well within average in relation to similar cordless handheld blowers. If air volume is important to you, the CAT DG651, with 800 CFM, could be in your good books.
  • Autonomy-wise, with up to 15 minutes of autonomy on a full charge, the P21100 is on the low end when compared with other cordless handheld units. To enjoy the best possible autonomy in this category, you could have a look at the Toro 51822 which offers up to 140 minutes of runtime.
According to our stats, the following comparison is pretty popular: Ryobi P21100 vs Ryobi ONE+ HP P21120.

    Thought changing to a cordless leaf blower would be so much better, Boy was I wrong!! The battery lasts maybe 15 minutes, but if your pressing the turbo button it will last alot less than that. The leaf blower is not for someone that lives in the country. I could not hardly get it to blow my leaves that were in a small pile, I was so disappointed!! I stopped using it & started using my leaf blower that has a cord. We paid $169 + tax for something that doesn’t do what you would expect, Ryobi has always had awesome tools until now. Once again, DISAPPOINTED!!

    + PROS: Lightweight,Cordless
    - CONS: Battery lasts MAYBE 15 minutes.

    Battery time is bad only 15 to 20 minutes then battery is dead! It’s not worth the money they sell it for. Paid $169 at Home Depot! Battery life is 15 to 20 minutes could not use this for yard work! I’m going back to the old power cord to do my yard work!

    + PROS: Light weight
    - CONS: Battery life sucks only 15 minutes

    It says in the review that it’s noise level is industry standard. That is so incorrect, it is far quieter, than industry standard. By a country mile.

    + PROS: Super quiet.
    - CONS: Expensive.

    Pretty disappointing machine. I’ve been corded forever and thought a new battery model would be nice. I was wrong. It’ll move leaves, but if you have work to get done this should be left in the box.

    + PROS: No cord or fuel required
    - CONS: Poor performance
