The Ryobi RY404100's performance versus other blowers

The following charts are provided to give you an idea how the key specs of the Ryobi RY404100 compare with handheld leaf blowers of similar voltage (between 36 and 48V).

  • Forced air exiting this blower has been clocked at a max speed of 190 MPH. This puts the RY404100 ahead of the pack as far as air speed is concerned in battery-operated handheld blowers between 36 and 48V. If you wish to benefit from air expelled at the fastest possible speed, the Makita XBU01PT and its 208 MPH could be an option to consider.
  • If air volume is an important feature, the RY404100 by Ryobi will not disappoint. Its airflow maxes out at 730 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 Husqvarna 350iB, with 800 CFM, could be in your good books.
  • Users can expect a maximum autonomy of 15 minutes from its battery, which means the RY404100 won't run as long as many other cordless handheld units before needing to be plugged in. To enjoy the best possible autonomy in this category, you could have a look at the Makita CBU01Z which offers up to 300 minutes of runtime.
