Overview of the Ryobi RY38BP

  • Power: The RY38BP, built by Ryobi, is a gas-powered leaf blower capable of expelling a maximum air volume of 760 cubic feet per minute (CFM). Its air speed is rated at 175 MPH.
  • Handling: By design, this model isn’t the smallest leaf blower on the market. It’s meant to be carried as a backpack so that the bulk of the unit is out of the way and the user’s hands are free to manipulate the nozzle. At 20.2 lbs, the Ryobi RY38BP is within the average weight range of gas-powered backpack leaf blowers.
  • Engine: The engine boasts a displacement of 38 cc. Please be aware that 2-cycle engines like this one require a mixture of gas and oil in order to run.
  • Speed Settings: Sometimes you just need a little more power, while other times you may want a little more precision when moving leaves and debris. That’s why the RY38BP features variable speed settings for added control.
  • Noise: As far as gas-powered backpack blowers go, this one is average in terms of noise with a rating of 75.5 dB.
