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 1 out of 5 by from Worked 3 times then died. Bought this last winter, used once. The battery that came with it died this past summer in a lawnmower and would not take a charge (same model batteries). Home Depot referred me to Ryobi customer assistance, which is abysmal. I did not have time to wait for 2 hrs on hold with the battery and tool ready. This winter, used the blower once, no issues, then next two times, right away, two lights would come on and flash, and machine would not power back on. This happened with freshly charged, warm batteries. Went online to review warranty but the site seems to have lost my two registered products. Very frustrated. Will not be buying Ryobi again.

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 Finally happy I pulled the trigger on buying one. I was always on the fence to buying a snowblower just because of the price tag. But I’m happy I did. Got it for myself for Xmas hahah. Quiet, nice and compact. I got the one without the batteries because it was 200 ish dollars cheaper. And I had two from my lawn mower. It was easy to use and got to the cement except for the already driven on tracks. But some parts it did get through the tracks. I’m sure I’ll figure it out. But super happy with this and all my Ryobi products. I would highly recommend.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not made for Canada First time reviewing a product, this snowblower performed so poorly hopefully someone will find this useful. I have a number of ryobi products including various tools and a lawnmower that I am happy with. Unfortunately this snowblower as useless. Purchased in November 2022. and used it approximately 5 times. It never would fully clear my walkway, driveway, and sidewalk on one charge (will try and attach photos). When the snowblower needed to clear snow greater than 4 inches it would struggle and only throw the snow maybe 12-18 inches clear of the snowblower - if I was clearing snow down the middle of my driveway, the snowblower would just be dumping it back onto the driveway. After the latest snowstorm my driveway had just under six inches of snow on it. The snowblower made one pass and then cut out. The snowblower will no longer start and I am returning it today. Not worth the money and I would give it zero stars if I could. Simply not made for Canadian winters.

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 Does a good job for a small machine I just bought this I like it. Good for a small machine it fit right in my hatchback didn't even have to drop seats. I do find myself pushing hard on this and battery dies a bit faster than I expected but I recommend you buy a 2nd battery. The chute is a bit small I think it could of been a bit bigger a bit more powerful but it gets job done. The battery charges fast. I used it in the backyard that I never do cuz I don't want to shovel it made me a good path and the led lights were good enough. So far for using it on my first day it is defiantly worth buying but becuase its small you can get in between your cars with this thing no problem.

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.

how long does the batt run

Asked by: carolla
Hi Carolla, Thanks for reaching out to us regarding the 40V HP 18-inch Brushless Cordless Electric Snow Blower Kit with 6.0 Ah Battery and FAST Charger. The runtime of this snow blower will depend on many factors such as the depth of the snow, how light or wet the snow is, etc. With that being said, this blower has been rated for a 30-minute runtime or 15 care driveway spots in one charge. For further information, please contact RYOBI Customer Support at 1-800-860-4050. Thanks, RYOBI Canada Team.

I have a Ryobi lawnmower. It has 2 batteries.  18V lithium. 4Ah. Will they work with any of the Ryobi snow blowers?

My concern is with cold temperatures affecting the battery, and also causing the plastic to become brittle and break.  What temps has this machine been tested in?  We are in Central Alberta, Canada.

Asked by: Kohelle
Live just outside Winnipeg, Manitoba (very cold winters). I purchased this item to clean snow off a large deck across the rear of my house (regular snow blower too heavy for on deck) had a similar sized plug in model but found dragging around a half frozen electric cord a pain. Used all of last winter without issue. Will go through a 1 to 1 1/2ft. of snow as long as it's not wet. Have 2 extra batteries from Ryobi lawn mower so charged batteries not an issue. For smaller jobs, not doing your whole driveway

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.
