Rated 1 out of 5 by from Buyer Beware - Design Issues I purchased this blower and was so excited to having a reliable machine and no gas. My first machine had the start issues and was returned. The Home Depot staff bent over backwards and had my second machine delivered to me . It worked well ( had to repair a flat tire ) and has no issue delivering the power required. Just went to use it this morning for the second time and the batteries will not connect it just humms . If I drop coin and spend my time I want a machine that starts . The engineering does not seem to have thought out this machine ..Snowblowers get wet people. Save your self a lot of grief and do not buy this defective product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This thing can move snow Used for the first time with about 10 inches of relatively heavy snow. Pros, this blower moves snow as well as my old gas blower. Lights work well and the hand warmers get good and hot. Cons, reverse is practically useless, I opted to drag it backwards. the shoot really kinda sucks. should move further from side to side, 180 degrees is not quite enough and kinda flops around a bit when positioned. It works but it could certainly be a lot better. If not for the shoot and the reverse I would have given it a solid 5 stars. Batteries had about half charge left after doing my driveway, about 65' x 20, and side walks and paths to out buildings. Short comings aside I'm so far happy with my purchase

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Auger won't start I bought the 24-inch 2-stage blower in November 2021 and it worked great the first time but the next time the auger wouldn't start. It took 30 minutes for it to start and I have no idea why. I tried it again today and again the auger won't start. The manual says it may be due to damaged shear pins but they are all intact. I noticed some ice build up around the shaft but even after clearing the ice and confirming that the auger moves by hand it still won't start. Also, it does not move in snow over 20cm and the auger doesn't work when the drive is in reverse. I took a chance on this one because the blower I really wanted is impossible to find. Definitely not impressed with this product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor engineering and quality Not happy about this purchase considering the high cost. The engineering is poor and many parts (nuts/bolts/washers) were missing from the package which made assembly difficult. The chute is only fixed to the body via a rather flimsy strut from above allowing snow to spill from the base of the chute. This needs to be fixed with some kind of fixed collar. The chute rotation is sloppy and doesn't stay in a fixed position for long. Far too much flimsy plastic for cold environments.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not good for Newfoundland I'm a big fan of Ryobi. I have several of their tools and even a 40V lawnmower. The mower can cut our entire 3000 sqft lawn and still have half a charge. The instructions are lacklustre to assemble, and it was missing 2 nuts, but overall it's still a simple setup. The chute just rests on the pivot... so snow escapes from under the chute a fair amount when in use. Not sure the size of the 31 cars, but I have a 5 car driveway, half-empty, and after 15 mins the batteries were at 50%. It can throw fresh snow decently, but when met with any compact snow it just stops and spins. It managed to chew through a 18" mound left from the plow but definitely took some effort. Lastly, there is no gear disengage. When there are no batteries in it and you want to move it, you have to fight the gears, which makes it very difficult to move. I think the electric snow blower technology is coming, but this just isn't it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from wait a while for a redesign I ordered this blower in early December 2021 and it finally arrived mid February 2022. Once assembled several things became very obvious. 1) to engage forward is very jerky and not a safe activity when standing on icy surfaces; 2) to engage the auger is a two step process which is not convenient at the best of times; 3) the chute mechanism is poorly affixed to the body of the blower and the discharge of snow causes the chute to move around displacing snow all over the body of the blower; While I like the ideal of a battery operated blower, this design needs some tweaking. I returned the blower to HD two days after receiving it (after only using it for less than 5 minutes). It would be my humble opinion to not invest your money in this unit at this point in time. I would consider this unit in the future if the design issues are addressed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Another Auger issue! I purchased this snowblower in late November. I've used it maybe 4 times. I was really impressed the first couple of times using it, as it plowed through some really heavy snow. The last time using it, I noticed it took a couple of tries to get the auger working. Once it started. It worked fine. We received a lot of snow over the weekend. When I went to go clear the snow, once again the auger didn't start. Only clicks...I tried many times to get it started but after two days I'm giving up. This was beyond disappointing, as this machine is priced high. I made a call directly to Ryobi to see if we could work something out. They seem to think it's a connection issue internally. They said I would have to return it to HD for replacement. Guess what...? There are no replacements...Anywhere...Ryobi, time to make this right. I don't really want to go back to gas-powered.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Clears heavy snow great but battery dies fast I bought this a couple weeks ago and finally got to try it out yesterday. This snowblower works great, clears heavy snow same as a gas one. The batteries don't last very long at all. I put 2 in and they died after about 15 minutes, I put the next 2 in and they lasted about the same amount of time. I had the first 2 charging while I used the second 2, I shoveled a little until the first set was 3/4 charged, about 20 minutes to half an hour, then used that set to finish off. Very disappointed with the life of these brands new batteries, this would be a great snowblower if they lasted like advertised. I have a 6 car driveway but had 4 cars in the driveway so only a bit of the driveway was really bad. My sidewalk isn't very long either. Would get a 5 star if the batteries lasted.

I have seen a few videos of a lot of snow coming out the bottom of the shoot where it mounts to the blower. Is this normal/design issue or is this caused by incorrect set up.

Asked by: mike
Not a good answer by Ryobi. I figured it out on my own. There is no lip or seal on the chute where it attaches. So there is a lot that falls out the bottom. This is a easy fix by putting a rubber seal on the bottom inside of the chute

Purchased Recently. Has a fairly strong "pull' to the right. Can this be corrected? I agree with: - instructions lackluster, missing 2 nuts, overall simple setup - no gear disengage, to move with no batteries you have to fight the gears

After using, it does not turn off by itself, I have to remove the batteries, is this normal? The manual says the auger paddle will lock on with the drive paddle held, this does not happen so I have to stop driving to make djustments, is this normal?

Asked by: Ntbwa
Hi Ntbwa, Thanks for reaching out to us. When you are using your 40V HP 24-inch 2-Stage Self-propelled Snow Blower after releasing the two handle levers, the snow blower should stop moving forward and the auger should stop. The LED lights will remain on as their is a timing sensor on them. If your snow blower does not stop moving please contact us at 1-800-860-4050 so we can help you better. Thanks, RYOBI Canada Team.
