The chargers gives a fault for both batteries. Google turns up a glitch where the battery is considered failed if it does not have enough juice to reports its status to the charger. Supposedly you can take them apart and use a soldering iron to "fix" them. This is absolutely bonkers. There is no way I am going to buy two more batteries to "repair" this.

Overall not too bad of a machine, I did return it as it did not move through snow as powerful as I would have liked. i did return it and was picked up by the courier, but was somehow lost from my house back to Home Depot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No more gas mixing! Starts every time! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I had another popular brand of snow blower and it was a pain, making sure I remember to check/get gas before a snowfall, mixing oil/gas and STARTING IT! Things are always harder to start when it's frigid out. The other thing was timing....I hated disturbing my neighbors with the loud 2 stroke noise blowing at very early or late hours so I put it off. This made it worse as the snow would build up. Now I don't have to worry about it.....when I want I just grab the batteries (I keep those in the house) and run out to the garage and it is ready to go! I have an average sized driveway and this runs through it pretty quickly. One feature I love is the chute direction lever.....as I make passes I can easily adjust the direction on the fly without stopping! Also, it has a nice headlight for late night work. To be fair I do need to mention that I did have one issue with the unit I received shutting off but I contacted Ryobi and they took care of it perfectly, I am very satisfied. I have had Ryobi tools for years and will continue to buy them as I think they are an excellent value and high quality products! Get one of these, you won't regret it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Power and Simplicity [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I used to have 3 Snow Blowers, a pair of 2 strokes and my large 2 stage. This unit has replaced both the 3 and the 5 HP 2 stroke units. So with the 3 sets of batteries 5 ah, i am able to cut a path through up to 20 inches of snow this past winter (2020-2021 NJ season) and have no regrets in this purchase. Basically this machine is a little stronger than my 3 hp 2 stroke but no quite 5 hp level, but about 100 times easier to maintain and operate. No mixing oil and gas, not worrying will it start, none of that. I clear a 6 car driveway, 120+ ft of sidewalk, and both of my neighbors houses with this machine. So for expectation setting this unit has on occasion gotten warm, it will stop the auger if the unit is jammed with snow or it find a random piece of ice or something too heavy. I have also had a few thermal shutdowns during use, i simply took that as an opportunity to get a warm drink and let it cool. These are normal, on my 2 strokes the engine would bog and shut down or the belt would slip. One thing to remember is Electric motors LOVE RPM, so don't bog it down forcing it through the snow, let it cut a path and try to keep the loading even. I've seen people with smaller gas engines essentially ram it into snow piles back off and repeat, this method isn't the best for this unit as it shock loads the motor and creates alot of heat. I find it much better to ease into the snow and keep consistent pressure if possible.

Ryobi Snow Blower easily clogs in wet snow conditions plus motor stalls after 20-30 meters. Wheels fail to rotate in freeze. Disappointing. Designers should have done more testing before production.

No way to tighten it or fix it. It was basically useless as it took me more time and work to use it, and I just ended up shoveling. Also one of the batteries melted. I didn't even get half a season's worth from it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great blower, powerful. This blew snow 30 feet down my driveway! It worked well with wet snow also. It is very quiet so not much risk of waking neighbors with early morning or late evening use. My first unit had a switch failure (manufacturers part fail). Easy to return and exchange. I love it

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome snow blower I purchased my snowblower refurbished (not from Home Depot) . This snowblower works great! I have owned it for two years and I have cleared wet heavy snow that the snow plower filled my drive with. Sometimes up to 12" of heavy packed snow. This blower throws it all out of the way. My parking is about 20' x20' with a 50' sidewalk. I also clear a wide path to my shed and a large area for my dog. The two batteries still hav 25% charge left when all done. I highly recommend this snow blower. The only complaint is that the scraper blade at the bottom of the blower wears too quickly. I had a hard time finding replacements and would have to wait months for a replacement. Last time I ordered 5 so I will be ready when replacement is needed. They seem to need replacing every year. It would ge great is there was a more sturdy scraper blade available (metal).

How do I buy it without batteries? I already have 4 40V batteries that came with several pieces of Ryobi equipment. Seeing as it would be wasteful to buy more batteries that we don't need, I am sure many of us would need to see a tool-alone option before purchasing.

Has this snow thrower been redesigned to correct the numerous flaws (collapsing handles, motor stalling, unit shutting down, etc.) it had last winter or will the poor quality continue?

Asked by: Jamis
Well, it appears that there is a new/replacement model of this snowblower out now. The new one has the "HP" designation like the other newer 40 volt products and has a different model number, but the same price. Everything looks the same, so we'll see if this model corrects the known flaws of the prior offering.

Is the charger that comes with this a fast charger? I'm not sure of there are standard and fast chargers for Ryobi batteries. Also does the handle fold in any way for storage purposes? Thx

Asked by: Nick
A lot of users have found out the handle folds even when you use it, let alone for storage.

Are the dual batteries wired in parallel, i.e. the system operates as a 40 volt system and ahr. based on the batteries mounted? Can you mix ahr. batteries, i.e. a 4 ahr. & a 6 ahr.?

Asked by: Jamis
Hi, Jamis. Thank you for your interest in the RYOBI 40V Brushless 21 in. Cordless Electric Snow Blower with (2) 5.0 Ah Batteries and Charger. Our batteries are wired in parallel. You can use most of our 40 volt batteries on our 40 volt tools. However, there are a few of our 40 volt batteries that do not work on all of our 40 volt tools due to the size and design of them.
