Overview of the Ryobi RY40440

The Ryobi RY40440 in use

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: 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: It has a 5 Ah 40 V Li-ion battery (1 battery included) that can work reliably for up to 30 minutes if completely charged.
  • Handling: By design, this model isn’t the smallest leaf blower on the market. It’s meant to be carried as a backpack so that the bulk of the unit is out of the way and the user’s hands are free to manipulate the nozzle. Its throttle is located on the tube, which allows you to keep your left hand free. At 21.2 lbs, the Ryobi RY40440 is within the average weight range of electric backpack blowers.
  • 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.
