Ryobi 40V 625 CFM Backpack Blower Review RY40440

Ryobi 40V Backpack Blower Offers Impressive Power

We put the cordless Ryobi 40V backpack blower through its paces to see how it compares to other models in its class. The big deal is that it’s a 40V cordless model using a brushless motor to deliver its power and it doesn’t have a ton of competition. However, EGO and Greenworks are no slouches and create a high bar to reach. The Ryobi RY40440 needs to show it can compete as an effective lawn care tool.


  • Up to 20.0 Newtons of force in our testing
  • CFM and MPH are higher than EGO 56V and Greenworks 80V
  • 23-minutes runtime on high using one 5.0 Ah battery
  • Only needs one battery to run and both ports are active


  • We measured a significantly higher decibel level than Ryobi’s 59 dB claim
  • The flexible tube portion doesn’t allow full motion to the left across your body
  • No hip strap to shift weight off your shoulders and back

Ryobi 40V Backpack Blower Performance

Great Ex-SPEC-tations

The Ryobi 40V backpack blower’s specs made us do a double-take. At 625 CFM and 145 MPH, the RY40440 throws down the gauntlet for EGO’s LB6000, the most powerful battery backpack blower we’ve tested to date with 25 fewer CFM. That’s right, Ryobi’s claiming more muscle than its competitors.
