Negative points

Starting up the RYOBI RBL26BP is relatively difficult. It is important to read the manual carefully and follow the instructions in order to start the appliance successfully. With a power limited to 0.68 kW, this model is less powerful than the Makita BHX2501. In particular, it will not be able to blow a wet ground where dead leaves are stuck. If you’re looking for a more powerful model, check out our 2018 Best Thermal Blowers ranking.

Positive points

The flat nozzle of the RYOBI RBL26BP is an important advantage. In addition to increasing the air flow and speed, it also promotes the detachment of sheets. This trivial detail increases the capacity of the device. The RYOBI RBL26BP is also light as it weighs only 5.5 kg while models such as the TIMBERPRO Thermal Back Leaf Blower weigh more than 10 kg. It is therefore easier and less tiring to wear. The harness has also been designed to make wearing this backpack leaf blower very comfortable. You could afford this device for less than $168.

In a few words

Despite a few faults such as limited power and relatively difficult starting, the RYOBI RBL26BP remains a very interesting thermal blower. It has several advantages such as a flat nozzle that optimizes the blowing of leaves, but also a comfortable grip. So you’d make a good deal if you bought this thermal blower.
