Overview of the Ryobi RY40412

The Ryobi RY40412 in use

The Ryobi RY40412

  • Power: This cordless leaf blower features a maximum air volume rating of 300 CFM and an air speed rating of 155 MPH.
  • Power delivery: This battery-operated blower from Ryobi offers cord-free convenience, ensuring users can move freely without worrying about cord restrictions.
  • Battery: Its 4 Ah 40 V Li-ion battery (1 OP40404 battery included) means that a user can operate the RY40412 for an estimated 40 minutes on a full charge.
  • Handling: It’s handheld, so naturally it’s easier to handle and carry than larger leaf blowers, such as backpack models or walk-behinds. It's important to note that the Ryobi RY40412 tips the scales at 13.9 lbs, making it heavier compared to many others in the cordless handheld category.
  • 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 RY40412 features variable speed settings for added control.
  • Noise: As far as electric handheld blowers go, this one is average in terms of noise with a rating of 67.4 dB.

The Ryobi RY40412's performance versus other blowers

The following charts are provided to give you an idea how the key specs of the Ryobi RY40412 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 155 MPH. This puts the RY40412 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.
  • Its max air volume rating (300 cubic feet per minute) means it is really not the biggest air producer of cordless handheld blowers with a comparable voltage. For the highest air volume, you may want to have a look at the Husqvarna 350iB, which boasts with 800 CFM.
  • Within the voltage range of 36V to 48V, the RY40412 falls within the typical autonomy range for cordless handheld units, delivering up to 40 minutes of operation on a full charge. If autonomy is an important factor for you, the Makita CBU01Z can run for up to 300 minutes and could be worth considering.

The bottom line

  • 5 year (limited) warranty
  • High MPH (155 MPH)
  • Acceptable noise (67.4 dB)
  • Good autonomy (40 mins)
  • Quite heavy (13.9 lbs)
  • Brushed motor
  • No cruise control
  • Low CFM (300 CFM)
