  • Battery: Its 4 Ah 40 V Li-ion battery (1 OP40404 battery included) enables the blower to run for up to 40 minutes without needing to recharge.
  • Handling: With its handheld design, this leaf blower was created with portability in mind. Most users will have no problem using it almost anywhere. Be aware that, at 13.9 lbs, the Ryobi RY40412 is on the heavier side of cordless handheld blowers.

The Ryobi RY40412's performance versus other blowers

  • Air exiting the nozzle of this blower can reach 155 MPH, which is quite a bit faster than most battery-operated handheld blowers. 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.
  • As this unit is rated at 300 CFM (cubic feet per minute), it expells less air than most cordless handheld blowers. For the highest air volume, you may want to have a look at the CAT DG651, which boasts with 800 CFM.
  • The RY40412 is within the average range for cordless handheld units, offering up to 40 minutes of running time when fully charged. If autonomy is an important factor for you, the Makita CBU01Z can run for up to 300 minutes and could be worth considering.
