Overview of the Ryobi RY40480

The Ryobi RY40480 in use

The Ryobi RY40480

  • Power: The Ryobi RY40480 can force 525 cubic feet of air per minute (CFM) from its nozzle at a maximum speed of 110 MPH.
  • Power delivery: Ryobi designed this battery-operated unit with total mobility in mind. The RY40480 only needs to be plugged in when it is charging, so users can take it almost anywhere.
  • Battery: Its 4 Ah 40 V Li-ion battery (1 battery included) offers an autonomy of 30 minutes on a full charge.
  • Handling: For those who are looking for a portable and convenient leaf blower, this model is a strong candidate. It’s designed for easy handling and use, and its size means it’s easily carried and stored. However, for a cordless handheld blower, the Ryobi RY40480 is heavier than most, weighing 11.9 lbs.
  • Speed Settings: Sometimes you just need a little more power, while other times you may want a little more precision when moving leaves and debris. That’s why the RY40480 features variable speed settings for added control.
  • Noise: Its noise rating of 68 dB can be considered the standard for similar electric handheld blowers.

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.

  • Maxing out at 110 MPH at full power, this blower is on the lower end in terms of air speed 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.
  • If air volume is an important feature, the RY40480 by Ryobi will not disappoint. Its airflow maxes out at 525 CFM (cubic feet per minute), which is more powerful than most cordless handheld blowers. If air volume is important to you, the Snapper XD PowerGrip, with 700 CFM, could be in your good books.
  • Users can expect an autonomy of 30 minutes from its battery, which means the RY40480 won't run as long as many other cordless handheld units before needing to be plugged in. To enjoy the best possible autonomy in this category, you could have a look at the EGO POWER+ LBX6000 which offers up to 96 minutes of runtime.

Price comparison

As you can see from this interactive chart, when compared to other cordless blowers, the Ryobi RY40480 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.
