Y’all know how I love my Ryobi power tools… when Ryobi recently contacted me and asked if I wanted to review their new 2 cycle jet fan blower. Umm… obviously they have seen my yard… with all these trees? YES PLEASE!
We like to blow all the leaves into the planting beds in the fall to protect the landscaping work to add insulation for the winter. (Goodness knows we have plenty of them). I will say though as I sit here and write this, we have 50+ mph wind gusts so I’ll be redoing all that work soon….. Sigh….
I did have so much fun with this blower- this thing is crazy powerful! It is the most powerful handheld blower on the market today. It blows up to 160 MPH or 520 CFM (cubic feet per minute). I really like that you can vary the flow depending on where you are. So when I blew out the fenced area around my HVAC unit, I used a lower speed to avoid the leaves bouncing everywhere along the fence and coming back in my face. When I was out in the open, I could go full throttle and move more quickly.
I made a silly video to show you how easy it is to use. It really made quick work of getting the leaves where I needed them to be… until the children got involved.
I want to say thank you to Ryobi for working with me on this project. I love sharing all their products with you and I really do use them every single day. While they did send me the blower to use and share with you, all opinions are completely my own and always will be.
