Rated 5 out of 5 by from The little engine that can! I initially had buyers remorse. But, decided a 6 inch heavy wet snow with an unfamiliar device was probably not a fair review of the product. I've now used it in 3 storms. 6 inches of heavy wet yuck, 6 inches of not quite as heavy wet yuck and just now, 3ish inches of fairly powdery. Looking back at my first use, I can see some of my errors (I'm a novice at snowblowers, this is my first one). I expected too much with the heavy wet stuff. It chugged its way through, but required effort. I was smarter with the 2nd wet snow, and went slower and it worked better. Today's light fluffy snow was downright fun to work with! I'm now impressed with how it handled that wet snow. It may have been slow going, but saved my back and shoulders a lot of pain. A few pieces of advice: I don't have a large driveway. 2 stall garage and a full sized pickup just barely fits between the garage and sidewalk. To blow my driveway and sidewalk with the powdery snow required 1+ battery. The heavy wet snow required 5 batteries. BUY AN EXTRA BATTERY!!! (I have other Ryobi products so I have multiple batteries) Don't store your batteries outside, they lose charge quickly (learned that the hard way on snowfall 2) Use silicone spray around the chute. My chute froze after the 1st snowfall. Luckily it warmed up enough to break the ice up so the chute moves freely again It's not hard to assemble, but the pictures in the manual were confusing. I studied the color picture on the box to figure it out. Ryobi people: the screws on the chute were extremely difficult for me to screw in. I couldn't get one of them all the way screwed in. Can you figure out a better design there? Thanks for reading!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn't start Just received my snowblower and it doesn't start. Tried all suggestions and read the manual as well. It just doesn't start. Tried different battery (fully charged) too. LED lights are also not turning ON.

I have been mostly pleasantly surprised. This season included the snowiest February on record here in Minnesota. The machine cleared snow including plow piles and deep drifts as well as any 20" gas single stage blower i've owned. It is much lighter and easy for the family to use. Unfortunately just prior to the last big snowfall the battery became stuck in the active battery port. I cannot remove it. I attempted to remove the compartment door to get slightly more leverage and the spring that holds the door open shot into a snowbank and is gone. The battery is still stuck and I had to use my Gas Blower for the first time this year on what appears to be the last major snowfall of the year. Almost made it one full season before disappointment. Only other complaint (along the same line) would be Battery access. The doors make it difficult to properly align the batteries when installing and they get in the way during removal.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible performance or broken. I really wanted this to work. I am a big fan of Ryobi’s other products; I own the 40v push lawnmower, trimmer and chainsaw , as well as the ride-on electric lawn tractor - and all of those are great products. So I had high hopes; I thought this would be a great addition since I already own a bunch of compatible batteries. Unfortunately, in my experience, this snowblower is a child’s toy - or possibly broken. I tried using it in no more than 2 inches (5cm) of wet snow and it could not handle it. It would constantly bog down, or get clogged. For the short spurts it worked, it would throw the snow no more than 5 feet away. I first thought it must be the wet snow so I waited until we got powdery snow instead. It gets bogged down by less than 1 inch (2.5cm) of powdery snow - what a joke. I am returning it to the store with a video of how badly it performs!

The blower discharges snow to only 2-3 ft. The battery was 100% charged, the snow was dry and about 10 cm, and this was the first time the blower is used. I've tried using my lawn mower's battery that was 100% charged, same distance Please help?
Asked by: Eric
Hello, Eric- This doesn't sound like the kind of performance we expect from the 40V model. Would you please give us a call at 1.800.860.4050? We'd like a chance to do some trouble shooting and see if we can help get the unit operating like we expect it to.

Asked by: John
Hello, John- Thanks for the question. No, this model operates on a different battery platform (not 18V ONE+), but it is cross-compatible with all the other Ryobi 40V tools. We hope this helps!
