A Must-Have for New York Winters

Posted by Dad Knows Best on 11/24/2014 at 4:21 PM in Outdoor Cleaning, Tutorials, Weather the Storm


Living in Western New York, the RYOBI 40 Volt Snow Blower is a must-have.

It was very simple to assemble and done in about 10 minutes.

You hit the button and it starts right up, runs smooth and is extremely quiet. So light weight you can use it on the deck which is so much better than throwing snow over the railing.

I love my RYOBI 40 Volt Snow Blower for cleaning the decks and sidewalks. It moves easily through the snow and is able to get pretty low on the deck. I cleaned my 120 ft. driveway with about 6 inches of snow in 20 minutes.

I was surprised how nice it went through wet and heavy snow without plugging up. It throws light snow with ease.

This is a great snow blower!


DIY Place Settings // The Log Blog

Posted by RYOBI Outdoor on 11/05/2014 at 5:19 PM in Tutorials, DIY Inspiration

Who ever thought you'd use a chainsaw for home decor? ...but logs are everywhere this season. Lets face it: bringing outside in is in this year. So we put the RYOBI 40V Brushless Chainsaw to work creating some lovely log-inspired designs for the home. First project? Log sliver place settings!

This project couldn't get any easier. We used the RYOBI 40V Brushless Chainsaw to cut slivers of a dead, dry log that were each about 1" thick.

Then, we used the RYOBI 18V ONE+ Corner Cat Finish Sander to smooth the entire sliver. This took about 5 full minutes per log piece.

After just about 20-30 minutes of initially starting the project, we were ready to stain the wood. We followed the directions provided on the Read more


Say Goodbye to Back-Breaking Raking

Posted by Dad Knows Best on 10/29/2014 at 10:35 AM in Lawncare, Outdoor Cleaning

No back breaking raking this year!!! Every fall the leaves cover the yard and my porch. This year instead of using a rake and spending hours doing back breaking labor.

I used my RYOBI 40V blower and cleaned up the yard fast!

It took less than 20 minutes and I could see the lawn again.

The porch was cleared in seconds!

I love the RYOBI Blower's variable speed, the air could blow lightly when I needed it and vary up to a very strong air flow to move larger volumes of leaves.

The light weight and curved design of the handle makes it easy work at the touch of your fingers. With the RYOBI 40V I won’t have to use a rake again. I love it!


RYOBI 40V Chainsaw

Amazing Saw!!! After trimming the trees in my yard, we had tree limbs that needed to be cut into fire wood.

This RYOBI 40V saw is light weight and has incredible power.

It cut through wood so fast we actually had to slow down just to get the picture to take. Otherwise by the time the picture clicked the saw was through the log.

It had a very long battery life, cutting the entire pile of wood in the picture in about 15 minutes with battery to spare.

The recharge time on it is also quick. My RYOBI 40V Chainsaw made cutting through this pile easy work!


The Great RYOBI Fall Fix Up

Posted by RYOBI Outdoor on 10/02/2014 at 9:28 AM in Lawncare, Outdoor Cleaning

It's that time of year again. It's that Monday-night-football, pumpkin-spice-everything, flannels-and-bonfires-and-apple-picking season. It's also time to prepare your outside oasis for the colder months. Use some of our Fall Fix Up tips and tools to help get your yard sweater-weather-ready!

1. Lightly trim branches close to the house. Be careful not to over do it, but trim your trees enough that they will be out of reach this winter. Keep in mind that branches hang lower with snowfall, and whip around in heavy winds. You can use a number of tools to accomplish trimming. Select a RYOBI Chainsaw based on your preference for cordless, corded or gas; the diameter of the branches you're cutting; and the Read more
