Rated 3 out of 5 by from This thing works ok but major flaw I am from Massachusetts, the land of snow. I just bought this snow blower this past weekend and of course I got to try it out two days later. It blew the snow ok but you have to push this thing with a little force. What happens is the top part of the handle collapses. Extremely annoying! There are locks halfway up the handle that really do a poor job of keeping it together. So, you have to shut it off, undo the locks, yank the top part up , set the locks and then the handle slides right back down again. I was expecting other issues but this one really surprised me and I don’t see a fix for it. A real aggravation.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This one works great I bought one 3 weeks ago, that one stalled out all the time. Called Ryobi Technical Support, got no advise other than take it back and get another. This took some thought on whether to get another or get a Toro electric however I have the mower which works fantastic and I have quite a few of the battery power tools... Getting back to the review, the second one worked fantastic on slushy wet stuff, even the area where the street plows did. The unit cut through it well... I gave it a 4 stars only because I had to take the first one back...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from light weight and easy to use. I really like this snow blower because it easy for me to use. Iam 81 and snow removal is a problem for me. its light weight and not having to start a motor sure helps. some suggestions: the handle locks (that adjusts the length of the handle) do not hold the handle well and pushing on the blower sometimes causes the handle to shorten, this has been mentioned by others before. a redesign here could help. I also found that the battery packs are sensitive to cold, you do mention this, but not very clearly. I had to move my charger indoors and I like to be careful where I charge lithium ion batteries. Over all I think this blower is a good buy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So much better than electric I bought this due to owning about 30 Ryobi 18 volt tools. I was checking my older electric snowblower before a storm hit and noticed some parts needed replacement. Perfect time to just jump into the 40 volt line! The storm last week dropped 6 inches of snow and this made such easy work of it! And no cord to constantly trip on and get caught on corners. It was a mix of snow with a small layer of sleet on top. The only thing that I was somewhat disappointed in was only one charger being included. I just bought a second charger to charge both batteries and get back out there faster. Overall, I an very pleased with my newest Ryobi family member.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So easy my wife does it I bought this a couple days of ago, just before the 2 big storms in Massachusetts on December 1, 2019 and December 2, 2019. My wife and I are both in our 70's and we can't shovel anymore. I used to snow blow the driveway but now we hire a guy with a plow. For the walkways and deck we considered a corded snow blower, but decided to try this Ryobi so we wouldn't have to deal with a cord. We weren't sure that a battery-powered blower would be up to snuff but Home Depot has a 30-day return policy so we decided to give it a try. It does what we want it do! Even in fairly heavy snow it did a good job. It's so lightweight that my wife seems to enjoy using it. It is her 'exercise'. In fact, I haven't even used it yet because she has so much fun with it. Today I cooked breakfast while she cleared the deck. The batteries seem to last about 45 minutes which is enough to clear the deck and do the walkways. Today's snow was a little on the wet side and it still did a good job, which surprised us because we thought it would only work with powder snow. However, a frozen rain/snow mix would be too much to expect. This thing is a keeper.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The little snow blower that could. A great, low maintenance option to traditional, noisy gas powered snow blowers. I was pleasantly surprised by the amount of heavy, wet snow this machine could throw. The LED headlights are a great help when using into the evening or early morning. We also have the Ryobi lawn mower that uses the same 40v batteries. The foldable handle reduces the amount of storage space when not in use. We have a collection of Ryobi woodworking tools and they do not disappoint. I would be happy to test out a two-stage version if Ryobi is up for the challenge.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Better than expected. I bought this before a big Thanksgiving weekend of snowstorms in Utah. I knew it wasn't going to perform the same as a gas powered 2 or 3 stage blower, but I figured it could at least handlea few inches of some dry, fluffy snow. Well we got hit several times that weekend. One day was about 6 inches of not dry, but not fluffy snow either. The Ryobi handled it with easy. The next day we got 12-14 inches of very heavy, wet snow. I was worried. My neighbor across the street has a gas powered single stage Toro. I had to take it easy with the Ryobi and not go the full 21" across. Slowly but surely, I was able to clean off 2 1/2 car lanes on my driveway and the sidewalk before my neighbor could clear one lane with his Toro. I was very impressed with how far this machine could sling even heavy wet snow. Pros: Throws snow far, lightweight, good LED so you can work at night, never had to unclog the chute, punches above its weight Cons: On full power it always knocks the end of the chute straight up, couldn't figure anyway to keep it down, couldn't get through packed snow at the end of the driveway from road crews.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from super easy to use Snowblower is excellent. Highly recommended. Light feature is awesome. Only complaint is that my 5amp battery from my Ryobi lawnmower 'technically works' with this snow blower BUT that battery gets stuck in the battery compartment as it does not clip out like the 2 furnished batteries that came with the snow blower. That said I am not very likely to ever have to use that 3rd battery, I'm just hoping that the 2 batteries I have for this clips fine into my lawnmower as I was counting on utilizing that second battery for the summer. I just did buy my lawnmower this last year.
