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 similar leaf blowers.

  • Upon exiting the nozzle, the air can reach speeds of up to 110 MPH, which is 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.
  • Regarding its air volume, the Ryobi RY40480 boasts an impressive airflow that can reach 525 CFM (Cubic Foot per Minute). This places it amongst the most powerful cordless handheld blowers. If air volume is important to you, the CAT DG651, with 800 CFM, could be in your good books.
  • Autonomy-wise, with up to 30 minutes of autonomy on a full charge, the RY40480 is on the low end when compared with other cordless handheld units. To enjoy the best possible autonomy in this category, you could have a look at the Toro 51822 which offers up to 140 minutes of runtime.
