Overview of the Ryobi RY40440

The Ryobi RY40440 in use

The Ryobi RY40440

  • Power: This cordless leaf blower has a maximum air volume rating of 625 cubic feet per minute (CFM) and an air speed rating of 145 MPH.
  • Power delivery: This blower has a brushless, battery-operated motor. Thus, the user won’t have to worry about tripping over pesky cords when they’re busy working their lawn.
  • Battery: Its 5 Ah 40 V Li-ion battery (1 battery included) enables the blower to run for up to 30 minutes without needing to a recharge.
  • Handling: This blower’s backpack functionality makes make it less exerting on the user, even when used for an extended period of time. Its throttle is located on the tube, which allows you to keep your left hand free. All told, it weighs 21.2 lbs — the Ryobi RY40440 is neither the lightest nor the heaviest electric backpack blower on the market.
  • Speed Settings: There are times when you only need a little more power, while other times you will want a bit more precision when clearing leaves and debris. For this purpose, the RY40440 offers variable speed settings, adding you, the user, more control, and a cruise control mode, which will allow you to maintain it comfortably for as long as you wish.
  • Noise: Its noise rating of 59 dB can be considered the standard for similar electric backpack blowers.

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 similar leaf blowers.

  • Upon exiting the nozzle, the air can reach speeds of up to 145 MPH, which is rather impressive for a battery-operated backpack blower. If you wish to benefit from air expelled at the fastest possible speed, the Husqvarna 550iBTX and its 148 MPH could be an option to consider.
  • The RY40440 is powerful, with an airflow rating of 625 CFM (cubic feet per minute). This is certainly on the high end compared to other cordless backpack blowers. If air volume is important to you, the Kobalt KBB 4240-06, with 690 CFM, could be in your good books.
  • Autonomy-wise, with up to 30 minutes of autonomy on a full charge, the RY40440 is on the low end when compared with other cordless backpack units. To enjoy the best possible autonomy in this category, you could have a look at the Kobalt KBB 4240-06 which offers up to 200 minutes of runtime.

Price comparison

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.
