Overview of the Ryobi RY40440
- Power: The RY40440 is a cordless blower made by Ryobi. It has a maximum air speed of 145 MPH and its nozzle can expel a max air volume of 625 cubic feet per minute (CFM).
- Power delivery: If you don’t like dealing with cords, you will be delighted to know that this blower is equipped with a brushless, battery-operated motor.
- Battery: With its 5 Ah 40 V Li-ion battery (1 OP4050A battery included), the Ryobi RY40440 has a standard, full-charge run time of up to 30 minutes.
- Handling: Like most backpack blowers, this model is technically heavier than a handheld. That being said, it can feel lighter and more comfortable because of the way it is carried, even when used over extended periods of time. Its throttle is located on the tube, which allows you to keep your left hand free. However, for an electric backpack blower, the Ryobi RY40440 is heavier than most, weighing 25.1 lbs.
- Speed Settings: With its variable speed settings, the Ryobi RY40440 allows you to precisely control its air output. In addition, the blower is also equipped with cruise control, with which the user can easily maintain the selected settings.
- Noise: With a decibel rating of 59 dB, the RY40440 is neither louder nor quieter than its rivals in the electric backpack category.
The Ryobi RY40440's performance versus other blowers
The following charts are provided to give you an idea how the key specs of the Ryobi RY40440 compare with backpack leaf blowers of similar voltage (between 36 and 40V).
- Upon exiting the nozzle, the air can reach speeds of up to 145 MPH, which is on the lower end for battery-operated backpack blowers between 36 and 40V. For the fastest air speed in this category, you may want to consider the Echo DPB-5800T, which can expell air at a velocity that can reach 195 MPH.
- It has a maximum air volume output of 625 CFM (cubic feet per minute). With this output rating, the RY40440 is well within average in relation to similar cordless backpack blowers with a comparable voltage. If air volume is important to you, the Ryobi RY404170, with 730 CFM, could be in your good books.
- Users can expect a maximum autonomy of 30 minutes from its battery, which means the RY40440 won't run as long as many other cordless backpack units before needing to be plugged in. To enjoy the best possible autonomy in this category, you could have a look at the Makita CBU02Z which offers up to 240 minutes of runtime.
As you can see from this interactive chart, when compared to other cordless backpack blowers, the Ryobi RY40440 is on the cheap side of the price range.
It can therefore be a really good buy if you're looking to acquire a budget blower.
