Ryobi 40V Snow Blower RY40860

The Ryobi 40V Snow Blower features a brushless motor and two active dual discharge battery ports. The result here is a snow blower that runs efficiently and powerfully off of two 40V high-capacity batteries.

It can clear piles 13″ deep and 21″ wide, chucking them up to 35′ away. With a 180° directional chute, you can control exactly where you want your snow thrown. The variable speed steel auger can be set for longer runtimes or farther throw distances.

The Ryobi 40V Snow Blower comes chock full of convenience features as well. It starts up immediately via its push-button ignition, and an LED headlight bar lights your way in dim conditions, which – considering how quietly battery-power runs – means that you can snow blow before dawn without waking the neighbors. Finally, the telescoping handle on this snow blower folds over for easy storage in tighter spaces.

The Ryobi 40V is available now from your local Home Depot for $499. It comes with two 40V 5.0Ah batteries, a charger, and Ryobi’s 5-Year Limited Warranty.

Until Ryobi comes out with fast 40 V single and dual chargers their 40V line will be stuck on the porch not running with the big dogs. 1. I returned my Ryobi 40V 21″ mower because the 6 Ah battery took over 4 hrs to charge. 2. This snow blower is even worse: two 5 Ah batteries and no dual charger! Do they give you two charging caps? Or expect you to charge one battery for 4 hrs. Then charge the 2nd battery for another 4 hrs? 3. I really like my Ryobi 40V attachment capable/Trimmer Plus (r) power head.… Read more »
