The Ryobi RY404140's performance versus other blowers

The following charts are provided to give you an idea how the key specs of the Ryobi RY404140 compare with handheld leaf blowers of similar voltage (between 36 and 48V).

  • It can push air from the nozzle at 160 MPH, which puts it ahead of its class in terms of air speed for 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.
  • The Ryobi RY404140 is a powerhouse, boasting an airflow capacity of 650 CFM (Cubic Foot per Minute), firmly establishing itself among the most potent cordless handheld blowers. If air volume is important to you, the Husqvarna 350iB, with 800 CFM, could be in your good books.
  • Its battery is standard in terms of autonomy for a cordless handheld product that runs on this kind of voltage. Fully charged, it should run for up to 40 minutes. If autonomy is an important factor for you, the Makita CBU01Z can run for up to 300 minutes and could be worth considering.
