The Ryobi P21140's performance versus other blowers

- If air volume is an important feature, the P21140 by Ryobi will not disappoint. Its airflow maxes out at 450 CFM (cubic feet per minute), which is more powerful than most 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.
