The Ryobi RY40480's performance versus other blowers

The following charts are provided to give you an idea how the key specs of the Ryobi RY40480 compare with handheld leaf blowers of similar voltage (between 36 and 48V).

  • Exiting the nozzle, the air can reach speeds of up to 110 MPH, which falls on the lower end for battery-operated handheld blowers. For the fastest air speed in this category, you may want to consider the Makita XBU01PT, which can expell air at a velocity that can reach 208 MPH.
