The following charts are provided to give you an idea how the key specs of the Ryobi RY40440 compare with similar leaf blowers.

  • The Ryobi RY40440 expels air at speeds up to 145 MPH, making it standard in terms of air speed for battery-operated backpack blowers. If you wish to benefit from air expelled at the fastest possible speed, the Ryobi RY404170 and its 165 MPH could be an option to consider.
