I had the older model Ryobi backpack leaf blower for three years and it was very reliable, excellent machine (I mistakenly drove over it.) I replaced it with the new model and if you’re wearing a weave or toupee, watch out, this thing has power!! HUGE difference in power, excellent machine for clearing pea sized gravel and overall debris, it seems a bit louder, however with the 760 CFM I get why. I HIGHLY recommend buying 50:1 premixed fuel (HomeDepot sells it, in a red can.) The 50:1 will prolong the engine and small parts in the machine.

So I bought this backpack blower today, put together in 5 mins. Added fuel primed bulb and started on second crank! I tried it out moving leaves and small branches from live oak in my back yard! It actually surprised me that it had that much power! Can’t wait to bring it to my camp and clean up there also it should cut my cleaning time in half! It’s not very heavy and pretty comfortable on your back!

It is a good blower; however, it is too big for me, I am a 5’3″ petite woman, and it just fit me funny, it is def built for a larger framed person, it was heavy too, there is no way I could have used it for any length of time. They need a reducer for the end b/c I found that it was not targeted enough, as in it blew everything it came across, lol. Also, my hubby used the hair dryer to heat up the end like someone submitted earlier in the reviews and it worked like a charm!

Super easy to put together. Incredibly comfortable to wear. I’m in the Professional Landscaping Business (Selling not Operating) but am very familiar with all our equipment and have used our Pro Husqvarna Blowers. Have to say that I was impressed by the overall quality and power of this Ryobi. 

We will be happy to hear your thoughts
