Jodi Marks demonstrates the gas powered Ryobi backpack leaf blower.

Backpack leaf blowers are easier to use and more powerful than handheld blowers, and the Ryobi gas powered backpack blower is the most powerful residential leaf blower available.

It has a powerful 42-cc gas engine that delivers 510 cubic feet per minute (CFM) of air at 185-mph to make fast work of all your lawn and driveway blowing chores.

The Ryobi backpack blower has an ergonomic design with a locking, variable speed trigger, and is available at The Home Depot.

Jodi Marks: You like my new toy? I love this. This is the new Ryobi blower. And it’s a backpack blower. Which, you know, typically you’ll see a lot of commercial landscapers using the backpack blowers, because they’re so easy to manipulate and use. But I’m so glad that they’ve come out with a residential grade of a backpack blower.

And what I like about the Ryobi one is, look at this. This is the most powerful residential blower available, because it’s got a large 42cc engine. That’s almost as big as the engine that I have on my scooter that gets me around town, so you know it’s pretty powerful.

I also like the fact that, look at this, this is very ergonomically pleasing. It’s got variable speeds, I can lock it on and just blow my leaves. This is great for dry leaves, and it’s also great for grass clippings.

So, if you’re in the market for a blower, look no further than right here. As a matter of fact, I wonder if they’ll let me get to work and go test drive it out in the parking lot.
