    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terribly disappointed Wow, putting this together is a no-brainer. I think it took me about 2 minutes to assemble this after taking everything out of the box. Most of the unit is already assembled ahead of time for you, so no tools required. You just unfold the handle and lock it in place, extend the handle to its full length, insert the chute rotation rod, and the attach the handle to the rod. The way it folds up makes storing it in your basement for the Summer super simple and it folds up very compact. This is my third electric snowblower (yes, third) all from different manufacturers, but it's also my first battery powered one. I'm excited to not have to drag out my 100ft 12 gauge extension cord, try to not suck it up into the auger while snow-blowing, and then try to coil it back up in sub-freezing temperatures when it's solid as a rock. Ryobi gives you a 5 year warranty on the blower itself and 3 years on the battery. I see nothing that excludes certain parts of the snowblower that are critical to it's operation. The owner's manual states wear items are not covered by the warranty but then it goes on to list out the wear items. Since this is a brushless electric motor the only parts I can think of that would wear out would be the rubber blades on the auger and the pavement scraper blade. Neither of those items are listed as wear items so maybe they are, in fact, covered by the warranty? This takes a 40v lithium ion battery (included along with the charger) and I was surprised at how small it was. Ryobi ships the batteries with a half charge which is the ideal state to leave them in if they will not be used for a long period of time. When you put the blower away for the season I highly recommend dis-charging or charging the battery to 50% of its capacity to help it last longer. Because the battery is so small the charger doesn't have a very large footprint so I was able to store it in my toolbox along with my various other drill chargers and plug it into the power strip. The snowblower actually has a second waterproof storage compartment for the battery when it is not in use, but I assume you could store a secondary battery in there so if you have a large driveway you can finish the job without waiting for the battery to re-charge. Just swap out batteries and go. Awesome. I had to wait a LONG TIME before I could finally put this through it's paces in some fresh snow. We've set a record in my area for the latest snow fall of the season so I had this on standby... just waiting to dig in. I never thought I would actually want it to snow at least a foot. The overall size of the blower is quite a bit smaller overall than I thought it would be. It is also a lot lighter. Being lightweight can be good and bad. It's good because you'll be less fatigued pushing it around but the extra weight keeps the scraper blade closer to the pavement. It's a bit of a trade-off but the light weight is appreciated when you're carrying it up and down a flight of stairs. This folds up very compact and when you pick it up by the carrying handle the center of gravity is pretty close to being right where it should be so transporting it is not bad at all and it takes up very little space. This collapses down small enough that I can slide it underneath my workbench until the next snowfall, or throw it in the back of the trunk of my car to do a family member's driveway. The chute rotation rod/handle is the only piece I don't know what to do with when I store it away. There's no good place to store it so I just lay it across the top of it. The handle bar is comfortable and a good height for me, I'm about 6ft. I think you can actually adjust it so it's shorter, so if you're a bit shorter than me you shouldn't find it difficult to use. The safety button is a little awkward to get to, but I like that Ryobi used levers that work with your left or right hand or both. Push the safety button in and squeeze one or both handles to activate the auger. It's nice to not have to keep your right hand on the handle at all times, which is difficult in tight areas like around vehicles or trees. Even while wearing heavy winter gloves I didn't have any difficulty turning it off and on. I'm pretty confident my wife will have the strength to use this if we get snow and I'm away on business. Ryobi mounted a pair of bright LED headlights to the top of the housing that turn on when you power up the snowblower and they turn off a second or so after you shut it down. They're pretty bright and are a big help if you're trying to clear your driveway at night. It would be neat to be able to turn them off though during daylight hours just to save that little bit of precious battery power. Now that I've finally been able to put it through its paces I have to say I am very disappointed with the overall performance. We got about 13 inches of snow, that had a 2-3 inch layer of slush at the bottom. I'm not going to knock the blower for not being able to move the slush but it struggled even with only 4-5 inches of powder. The furthest I got any of the now to travel was about 10ft. Nowhere near the 25ft advertised. The discharge chute is easy to turn but that's a bad thing because it will NOT stay in the direction I aimed it. It keeps wanting to turn and throw the snow straight forward. Ryobi touts a load sensing feature that conserves battery power. It is horrible! I absolutely hate it. The auger spins so slow when you first pull the trigger that as soon as you hit the snow it stalls out and causes the motor to shut down as a fail safe. You have to hit the snow at just the right speed so it ramps up to full power mode. This is very hard to do and I've just barely gotten the hang of it. Ryobi... ditch the load sensing, run the auger at high speed as soon as I pull the trigger. I got so fed up with it, I threw it into a snow bank and used a shovel instead. I will probably keep the battery and charger and literally throw this thing away. When I first started using the blower I could hear the auger hitting something. I couldn't figure out what it was until I stopped using it. The rubber blades are hitting the screws in three different places. Did anyone test this design? Major failure here Ryobi. You can see the three chunks taken out of the auger blades in my photos. As far as the battery goes, it is under powered. It's only rated at 4 amp hours. I was only able to clear my 70ft of sidewalk before it dropped down to 1 light's worth of power on the indicator. I would need about 4 batteries or 4 re-charging cycles to be able to complete my driveway. Bottom line, this thing MIGHT be able to handle about 6 inches of powder if you learn how to approach the snow properly so the load sensing ramps up the power. I had such high hopes for this and am left hugely disappointed. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best 20in. 40Volt Brushless Cordless Electric Snow Blower Easy to set up for use. Light weight to be able to move anywhere. It is great to have a spot for the extra battery. Very handy for porches and sidewalks. I love this snow blower.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great for decks and walks This snowblower meets my needs to clear snow off my two decks and walkways. I was surprised as to how long the unit ran before the battery stopped working. The first storm left 3 inches of wet snow and the second storm left the same except powdered snow. I cleared two 13 X 14 foot decks, a walkway 40 feet long by 3 feet wide, and the top area of my paved driveway area 24 feet by 40 feet. The unit met my criteria: - Battery operation (I have a Ryobi 40V string trimmer) - Light weight to carry up 10 steps - Portable. Can put in my SUV to let my daughter use it - Good enough to clear three to four inches of snow I let my daughter use the unit for her small driveway and front walkway as well as a path for the oilman. It won't clear the base of her driveway from snow plows but it does work well for her as she has rhumatoid arthritis. As the season just started, I am hopeful the unit will become a best buy for me and my family.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everything I wanted! Bought this today. Charged battery. Cleared 60 foot driveway and turnaround of almost a foot of snow in 35 minutes. Lightweight (I'm 70 and that matters!). Headlights a bonus. Was able to put car away in garage and can't wait to clear the snow again!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from disappointing First use was with three inches of snow and some serious issues became very clear. Four major issues: -Light failed on first use -Plastic blade had a hard time clearing old snow -Poor ground clearance do to plastic blade guard -Battery drains too fast In conclusion, it's ease of use doesn't overcome it severe flaws. This product is not worth owning

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Easy to Assemble We have not had our first snowfall yet so I can only comment on the other aspects of this snow blower. I own a number of the Ryobi 40-volt yard tools and so I already own 4 batteries and 3 chargers. I have a 24 inch gasoline powered snowblower that I will continue to use to clear my expansive driveway. I am planning to use the Ryobi to help clear my back deck and occasionally the concrete walkway from my driveway to the front door. The machine is very easy to assemble and the headlights are a nice touch for an early morning or evening cleaning. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cleared crusty icy snow We live in Michigan and had our first snow which was more than just snow. It included a layer of crunchy ice. We thought we would try out our new Ryobi cordless electric snow blower. I have to say that while many other snow blowers would have clogged on the layer of ice, this machine powered through and was able to work to clear it. Although this is not what we would usually use this snow blower for, we wanted to test it out at the beginning of the season. I would rate it an A for even this type of precipitation. Please watch the attached video for this demonstration. The snow blower comes almost totally assembled, as my husband just needed to assemble the snow chute directional handle. The snow blower handle folds into position easily. No tools are necessary. The battery pack had a small charge on arrival, and we charged it overnight. The machine has nice headlights when in operation. The machine comes with printed directions and totally meets our expectations. It is so nice not to use gasoline or worry about an extension cord to power a snow blower. This looks like a great product for our tough winters ahead.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from The little snow blower that could I had the opportunity to evaluate this Ryobi electric snow blower. Upon unpacking I was pleasantly surprised to find almost no assembly was needed. Yay on that one. It also will easily fold down compact for storage without tools. It appears that noting will rattle loose like the bolt and nut handle connectors on other blowers. The unit itself has a automated power to need feature. That means it will automatically apply more power as needed to keep the auger rpm up and when not needed it will run using less power. For me the LED headlights are just a gadget but they are built into the main case and also run automatically. I was surprised that the first wet icky snowfall of the year came the day after I unboxed. It ran through 4 " of wet good snowball type snow with ease. Noting this is a single stage blower I know it will not work well with soggy slush. My suggestion is that you keep the battery warm indoors prior to use. Lithium batteries work best when not chilled or frozen. I also did not smell like Eau De Snowblower when I got to work. It is light weight and easy to operate. Construction is typical plastic case and wheels but the auger is also hard plastic and could be easily be damaged if you it hit sticks or road gravel. It works well on sidewalks and small driveways. Long warrantee is a huge plus. Average battery life during use is about 40 minutes. Fast recharge. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

    Hi,  Will this product be available in Canada for the 2015-2016 winter? Also if so will it be included with or without batteries? Thanks,  - Victor 

    Asked by: victortran247
    Victor - I just got a call 10 minutes ago from my local store in West Kelowna to tell me these were now in stock. They said part of the delay was a redesign to fix some of the flaws that came to light last season which was the first year for this product. But call your local store. They should have some.  Tim Perrin
