What Reviewers Say
The RYOBI ONE+ 18-Volt Lithium-Ion Cordless Leaf Blower and Vacuum has a quiet operation and is convenient to use in the early morning or late at night without disturbing your neighbors.
The lightweight design makes it easy for all ages to use, and it works well for pushing around piles of dry leaves and dirt on decks, porches, and patios. It never feels laborious when doing a quick sweep on a pool deck or sidewalk.
It also comes with a useful drying feature if you need to use it on wet surfaces. The ergonomic design of the handle makes it comfortable to grip and hold for long periods of time without experiencing any strain on your hands or arms.
Some people may find it's not as powerful if you need to push around damp or wet leaves in the yard and requires a bit of work.
The 4-amp battery lasts a long time before you have to charge it again, which makes it easy to work at a faster pace without any interruptions. It has an excellent power/weight ratio. It's designed to blow and suction all types of leaves with ease.
The vacuum is also powerful enough when it blows to move around different sizes of rocks in the yard.
The suction power is strong when suctioning all sizes of debris and loose particles. It doesn't leave any pieces behind when you move it at a slower pace.
The high speed of the action makes it useful for quick clean-up jobs. The lack of extension cords also offers more mobility, especially when you're working in outdoor settings on large properties.
If you purchase discount batteries to put in the vacuum instead of Ryobi batteries, you'll notice the power is compromised, which affects its operation. Some people may also notice that it doesn't offer as much air volume as similar brands.
It also works well for certain types of outdoor jobs like blowing off the roof and rain gutters of leaves, making it easy to only use one tool for all types of outdoor projects while maintaining your yard without switching equipment.
Although the vacuum has a sturdy design, the fan blades are thinner and cheaper than expected. They can crack easily if you're not gentle with how well you handle the product.
If the blades crack, the blower starts to lose some of its efficiency and can become a lot louder with how it operates. The blades are available to purchase, but it requires a bit of patience and skill to change them out to improve the operation of the vacuum.
