Rated 3 out of 5 by from Expand-It 12-inch Snow Thrower Attachment This snow thrower works well in up to 15cm -6'' dry snow ,wet snow or worse you'll waste time splashing slush around . I honestly find it useful instead of lifting snow up onto banks..For tight spaces and small to medium areas really works great . I have come to realize that there are no skid shoes on this tool so the whole plastic frame is subject to wear, wonder how much that with cost to replace? took the metal side plates off to modified by adding some rub material to that area.All in All the tool has its plus and negatives but seems to fit in between shovelin and useing something bigger for the smaller snow amounts. .

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Worked great until I ran over a string I have had this device for a month or more now but we did not have any snowfall. Fortunately (or unfortunately), it snowed last night so I used it today. It worked great! I am used it with the 40 volt power head and the gas power head and it was awesome. It exceeded my expectations, until I ran over a string and it tangled in the blower. It through the belt. I had to take it apart a but the belt back on. I was unpleasantly surprised how much "play" was in the belt tensioner. It is either a bad design or it was installed poorly? I made a few adjustments as I am very mechanically inclined which I think too the "play" out of the belt tensioner. We will see what tomorrow brings.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Useless handle, otherwise it might work okay To be clear, the unit works, and I'm actually looking forward to the first snow coming, however the unit is unusable with the handle provided in the box, which is why I reduced the rating to a 2/5. THE HANDLE WON'T TIGHTEN. The unit is off balance by design, and the handle is supposed to help you maneuver this, but THE HANDLE SPINS, MAKING IT UNUSABLE. Before I wrote this, I googled the unit and found several videos of people using it successfully with a different handle than the one that ships with the snow thrower, and I found a video showing someone having the same issue that I did, which implies to me this is a long standing issue with the product. I hope Ryobi Customer service, or Home Depot customer service responds with a fixed handle. If they do, I'll revise my rating and update my review. As it is, I did try contacting Home Depot customer service, but I haven't talked to them yet (waiting for a call back).

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great idea, poor delivery Bought this a month ago with high hopes. We don't get giant dumps of snow here but get snow frequently so thought this would do the trick. Cleared snow alright but you have to bring the shovel out to finish the job. After using it for maybe 5 days, clearing no higher than 3" of fluffy powder snow any of the times, the "auger" no longer rotates to throw the snow. Had to return the unit. Quite happy with the Ryobi Expand-it series of items but this one is a dud. Save your time and money and get something else.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great time-saver for our West Coast snow I found this is quite a time saver at least for the bulk of the snow. You may need to scrape off the small remainder of snow with a shovel. It's a great compromise over a snow blower for the small amount of storage space it takes. I use with this my DeWalt 60-Volt string trimmer. It is fully compatible with the DeWalt Universal Attachment System (and DeWalt does not make a snow thrower).

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Better Off With a Snowblower It's not bad for what it is. Though with such a narrow shovel path and no control for the throw direction it makes it rather annoying to use a lot of the time. It also doesn't get down to bare pavement ever, leaves a 1/3 of an inch of snow on the ground after each pass. It's pretty helpful for my driveway, but not my sidewalks. All told I will probably get a proper snowblower next year.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the attachment Great addition to my Trimmer Plus. Attachment is fully compatible and works as advertised. Not a tool for deep or heavy snow, but perfect for clearing walkways, small driveways, and backyard paths for my little pooches to go outside and do their business. Love it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Product but the Handle is useless Just receive the attachment and assembled (Dec 9, 2023). No snow yet so I didn't get a chance to try it, however, it does seem like a quality attachment that is going to work great. The one thing I can comment on is the handle attachment that comes with it. It's pretty much useless as the clamping mechanism doesn't grab the pole with enough force and it comes with a plastic Wing Nut that will break before you apply enough force to get the handle secured to the main pole. Since there's a drive mechanism that runs through the main pole I wouldn't suggest putting too much force on the clamp either. I saw this same complaint from a user in 2021 so it's unfortunate that 2 years later the problem hasn't been addressed. I see from most the photos that people seem to be using the handle that comes with the weedwhacker which is what I concluded I'd be doings as well. @ryobi - increase the diameter of the handle clamp to allow it to be lined with 1/8" thick rubber. I think it will solve the issue. Bit of free engineering for you! :)

Is it brushless

Asked by: John
Hi John, Thanks for reaching out to us regarding the Expand-It 12-inch Snow Thrower Attachment. This tool is an attachment as part of our expand-it lineup. This means there is no motor inside the attachment itself. I hope this helps! For further information, please contact RYOBI Customer Support at 1-800-860-4050. Thanks, RYOBI Canada Team.

It is brushless motor?

Asked by: wwww
Hi www, Thanks for reaching out to us. This Expand-it 12-inch Snow Thrower Attachment is just the attachment for our snow shovels. You would still need to purchase a power head with the motor/handle component to be able to use this attachment. For further information on this lineup, please contact 1-800-860-4050. Thanks, RYOBI Canada Team.
