Goodbye Outdoor Broom

Ryobi 40V Lithium-ion Cordless Jet Fan Blower via Our Southern HomeWe've just returned from our beach vacation. Loads of fun…even survived Hurricane Arthur on the North Carolina Coast. After being away for a week, the patio had quite a bit of debris. From what I hear, we had a few storms while away.

I've been using this blower for a couple of months now, and it is hands down my favorite tool! We have a front porch, walkways, screened porch and back patio. I can never start the old gas powered blower so I usually end up sweeping and sweating and sweeping and sweating!

This baby has changed my life and that of my husband and 2 teens! This is never stored in the shed. We keep it handy on the porch behind a chair. It makes it so easy to pick up and clean! I actually consider it kind of fun…I know weird…right?

 The battery pack lasts for ever. If you already have this battery with another of the Ryobi 40v Lithium-ion cordless devices, you can purchase it without the battery. This battery has a long life with gas like power.

Blown debris was everywhere.

Another favorite feature is the trigger. It is not just one speed. You can determine the amount of blowing force with the trigger. This is great when on the screened porch when I'm trying to concentrate the dirt to the door area. This will also be great when blowing the leaves out of the flowerbeds around more fragile plants.

It took no time at all to blow off the patio.

It works great for keeping the garage cleaned out. Right now I'm considering opening the front door and blowing out the hardwood floors downstairs! Just kidding, but I sure wish!

Since we started using this blower, my husband hasn't gotten out the old gas blower one time! We have over 500 feet of driveway and never lose a charge to clean our outdoor surfaces. You can visit Home Depot to view more on the blower. Purchasing with the battery is HERE and without the battery is HERE.

Let me know if you have any questions!

You may also want to check out my post on the Ryobi Hedge Trimmer. Both use the same battery! In coming weeks, I'll be sharing the cordless string trimmer and pressure washer!

  1. I love this blower! Wow, we need one. I had NO idea Ryobi made outdoor tools too! I use a broom when I sweep. This handy blower is going on my wish list! _ I love your yard too..So pretty!

  2. Wow! You’re patio and yard look amazing! I love how when tools are made well, they become time savers. My yards would look so much better if I could blow them up quickly … but alas, I tend to let them go since sweating and sweeping takes forever!

  3. I need on of these! I know what you mean about not being able to crank the gas one! And to many cords for the electric one! This one looks perfect. So glad I got to meet you at Haven!
    Have a great week,

  4. I’ve heard so many great things about Ryobi. I love how easy it is for you to use and that it holds its charge. I’ll have to remember that. What we REALLY need around here is a pressure washer. I’m going to look for your review on that.

  5. A broom takes forever! Our blower is so big and cumbersome that I hesitate to use it. This blower is definitely one that I could manage. We have a Magnolia tree on either side of our property and it would be really useful for blowing their pesky leaves into piles to compost.

  6. I love Ryobi tools and this blower definitely looks like something I need to add to my arsenal ~ especially when the leaves are falling which unfortunately will be way too soon.

  7. That blower sounds great! We get a lot of leaves in the fall and could really use something like this. Thanks for sharing your tips Christy.

  8. Oh I have been complaining about how complicated it is to clean my porch and deck. Our electrical outlets are on the side of the house and I always have to drag out my long cords for suck a simple task. This is on my must-have list. Great idea!

    1. Jeanette,
      I had an electric blower before this to try to make things easier for me, but those darn cords and outlet issues! How in the world did we not meet at Haven!!!! πŸ™ ~Christy

  9. That sounds so easy to use that it makes me want to do yard work! And we have lots of giant trees with lots of leaves and debris. Thanks for sharing this! Oh, and I really enjoyed meeting you at haven! ~ Angie

    1. Thanks, Angie. I am so glad we finally got to meet! Just wish we could all jump in the car and easily meet up at a moments notice! ~Christy

  10. Blowers make clean up so much easier! Ours isn’t battery operated though, that’s a featured I would love to have! Might have to look into replacing ours with one of these πŸ™‚

I love hearing from you!
