Rated 3 out of 5 by from It works. Kinda.. Got this unit in haste during a heavy snow fall. It can zip thru a foot of snow without bogging down. Which isn't bad, and the only reason I gave it 3 stars. It does work ok. But there's more negative than positive on this one. My biggest complaint. The battery life is grossly over exaggerated!! I have a 2 car driveway, and it died half way through on a full charge. But that's not all. The other issue I had was blow by. Both myself, and the machine were covered in powdery snow that it puked out of every crack within the first 30 seconds of use. It blows it everywhere! I blame the cheaply designed chute. It's also clumsy to use, and feels awkward. Plus the whole machine is about 90% plastic, and would most likely break in really cold weather. I'm very disappointed for the price. In my personal opinion, it's not worth it..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Far better than I expected I've inadvertently become a Ryobi poster-boy. Started with a large kit of 18V tools, which then dominos whenever you need another tool. And I've been very impressed with the power and durability of this line of DIY'er tools. They aren't Dewalt or Milwaukee, but they're also a fraction of the price. But....my experience wasn't so great with the larger tools. All the things about this snow blower that people are complaining about (dies after a minute or two, battery overheats, no power, won't start), I experienced with a couple of their larger tools and was very disappointed. That really made me pause and think about if I wanted to go through the pain and inconvenience of buying/assembling/being disappointed/disassembly/box/return process. That process gets tiring FAST! But we're having a huge amount of snow up here in Canada, so I took a chance. Am I ever glad I did. The first time I used it, there was about 5 inches of snow in my driveway (30ft x 20ft plus 90 feet of pathway). That snow wasn't powder...it'd been sitting in my driveway for two days and was crusty and chunky. Not wet, but not light powder either. Plus, also two days ago, I'd gotten plowed-in. This little snow blower chewed through it all and threw it far! I was actually quite shocked. It even scraped-up the hard-packed ruts from where cars had packed it. I couldn't shovel these ruts off my driveway but this thing picked them right up. I hadn't shoveled my walkway to my shed in my back yard this winter and it's about 90 ft of about 12" of snow that's been sitting there for weeks. I didn't want to carry this through all of that to get to my shed........so I used the snow blower to cut the path...and it did it! Yes, sometimes, I'd have to angle it up and do the path in a couple of sweeps, but the snow was literally over the top of the snow blower. It died just as I reached my shed. Runtime was about 45 minutes of hard work and this thing performed like a champ. Since then, I've used it a LOT! And only once, was it light powder. The rest was moderately heavy, chunky stuff....especially since I keep getting plowed-in. And this thing just powers through and tosses far. The only time it didn't toss far was with the light powder. It more just filled the air in the general direction. That's more the fact that the snow is too light to throw, not the snow blower. I haven't tried it in wet snow yet, so I don't know if the chute will clog often or not. I think all snow blowers will struggle more with wet snow though, so I don't think I'll be too disappointed if it doesn't handle that as well. Color me super surprised and super impressed. Now, as long as the machine keeps working, I'm a happy camper.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value and works well Put it to the test after the snow storm yesterday. We had a massive pile up at the front of our driveway from the plow doing our street. I was able to clear my 4-car driveway with the 18-inch snow blower with ease and was able to get it done quickly. In the spots where there was substantial amounts of snow, I needed to clear it in sections. I found it easiest to tilt it up slightly and take some off the top and then clear the bottom. If you take on too much snow, it causes the snow blower to power cycle. Once I figured out how much was too much, it was smooth after that. I had other batteries from Ryobi lawn mower so I was also able to lend the snow blower to my neighbors. The 21-inch would be nice but the 18-inch works perfectly for the amount of space I need to clear.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good helper saving my back. I bought it this year and it survived all major snow storms. It works fine with wet and deep snow. It woks even after snow plow when the driveway entrance is packed with compacted snow. Just it is need to be learned how to use it. One battery is not enough. You have to have at least 2 batteries. I have 3 batteries and I can clean up 5 car driveway without stress. Sometimes, I use 2 full batteries and some of third one. I hesitated originally but the snow blower proved itself. I'm in different position now comparing with last year when my wife and I did shovelling. I don't have back pain anymore.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A good blower for small jobs. I have a small corded snow blower for the house and walk that works well for small areas but the cord is a nuisance so I bought this for my larger garage pad. It works well even in snow deeper than the front of the machine though it doesn't throw the snow very far and swiveling the chute by hand is a nuisance. You have to keep an eye on the battry charge to make sure it doesn't get too low and damage a very expensive pack. The 6ah batterry in my kit was defective and Ryobi promised me a replacement but I have a 5 and 4ah packs which are fine. It can't replace my 30 inch gas one but it is good for a double garage pad.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great little machine In Nova Scotia, has worked great in the heaviest snowfalls this winter. 6ah battery is sufficient to complete my 70x15' driveway with up to about 10cm snow. Larger amounts or really wet snow I get about 75% done. Planning to get the Ryobi lawnmower with 6ah battery so that I have two batteries for the mower in summer and two for the blower in winter. Only gripe is that the battery cover has a brittle hinge. Broke off in the cold with a slight amount of pressure, so I've been taping the battery cover on with painters tape. Replacement is like $15 online, but it's still gonna be brittle. Not the end of the world.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tested good for 01/17/2021 GTA Blizzard Way beyond my expectation, fortunately I have an extra same battery from lawn mower, for 2 battery, it handled a 22'X40' driveway. However, for most time, I did not do a full load when blowing, i.e. 70% ish of the blower is inside the snow but leave 30% outside. Anyway, it's beyond my expectation for a blower with this price and such size.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Worked great for one day Ran the blower for the first time after a big storm last weekend and was very impressed with its performance, it cleared my 3-car driveway and walkways in no time, including powdery blown snow and some hard-packed snow that the road plow left behind, although I did have to switch batteries often as they seemed to not work when they got cold. Two days later it snowed again, and I got 2 passes with the blower before it died and would not start, although there was no obvious damage and the auger turned freely by hand. I took it to the local Ryobi repair shop where they were told by Ryobi that there are no replacement parts for this model, and to just return it, or they offered to swap it with the 21" model but couldn't deliver for over a month, when winter would be almost over. I ended up returning it to the store and paying full price for a different model instead. Disappointed with Ryobi on this, but at least Home Depot made the return easy.

Is the 18"- 40v snowblower made for cold weather? I tried one at -30C or -22F and the auger will not turn and the battery was fully charged. I brought it into a warm place and after 1/2 hour the auger worked. Is this expected?

Asked by: Alwaysdiy
Problem solved. Took it back to HD for exchange. New machine works just fine in our cold climate. HD has great return/exchange policy.

can 5 ah batteries work on this blower

Asked by: hondo
The battery receiver is a slide style. Currently, I use a 4ah battery in mine and the 5ah is the same design, it should be fine.

I don't see a way to change the chute direction without bending down and adjusting it manually. Is the only way to change the chute direction to bend down and rotate it manually?

Asked by: Jason
Hi Jason, Thanks for reaching out to us. This 40V HP 18-inch Brushless Cordless Electric Snow Blower has several durable items including a metal/rubber auger and a brushless motor.
