  • Power: The RY08420A gas-powered leaf blower, manufactured by Ryobi, is rated for a max air volume of 510 cubic feet per minute (CFM) and a max air speed of 185 MPH.
  • Handling: By design, this model isn’t the smallest leaf blower on the market.

  • Engine: This blower's engine has a displacement specification of 42 cc. Please be aware that 2-cycle engines like this one require a mixture of gas and oil in order to run.
  • Speed Settings: In order to afford more control to the user, this unit has a variable speed control. No matter the size of the job, the user can adjust the airflow of the Ryobi RY08420A to match.
  • Noise: With a decibel rating of 73.4 dB, the RY08420A is neither louder nor quieter than its rivals in the gas-powered backpack category.
