“ryobi is rubbish”

Written on: 13/06/2012 by stevehold50 (1 review written)

From day 1, the blower vac failed to work properly. It has been sent back for repair on 2 occasions and still it fails to work correctly, now it will start but will not rev up to a point where it produces enough power to blow or to suck. I will never recommend Ryobi to anyone, it is utter rubbish and in all honesty, shouldn't be on the market. I should have learnt my lesson when I bought a Ryobi strimmer, that failed to work after using it twice! Don't buy Ryobi, they are not worth it. Stihl or… Read Full Review

A minimum of 1 star was mandatory - I would gave less if I could. They do not stand behind their product at all - read this email string with Customer Service (start from the bottom)...

So, the complaints that mimicked my own are "irrelevant" and don't "reflect with any accuracy, a manufacturer's product as a whole." - despite the fact that the same model (RY08510) was called… Read Full Review

Written on: 13/02/2010

I run a commercial gardening company in Spain and we use leaf blowers every day, but convert them to hoovers with the extra bag attachments. I have used nearly every brand on the market, I can safely say in my experience that the Ryobi leaf blowers performed the very worst of all brands I have used. Stihl are ok, easy to get parts,(Except the latest model BG86 which is very badly designed) Echo are brilliant, but more difficult to get parts, Honda only make a blower, and you cannot get a… Read Full Review

Bought the Ryobi gas blower/vaccum with great expectations - bad move!!!! Hard to start, zipper on bag tore, mulching blade broke, tubes keep falling off, etc. etc. etc. This is all from using to two times. Biggest piece of junk I have ever owned. Liked absolutely nothing about it… Read Full Review

I am very disappointed with this Ryobi RY08510 leaf blower. I try to limit its use to 15 minutes at a time as it is a nightmare to operate. I believe Ryobi could have solved all these niggles quite easily before putting this product on the market… Read Full Review

Don't waste your money on this equipment. Our local authorized repair service is not qualified to repair Ryobi. We replaced short block, under warranty. Have a choke problem, service tech rebuilt carb., it wil start but after it warms up, it dies out, he said it may need new carb. … Read Full Review

Written on: 06/11/2007 by KC Bob (1 review written)

The warrranty on the machine is for two years. I have had it at two different repair shops, under warranty, because it was difficult to start. One of the shops took the air filter out or left it out by accident. It still is difficult to start. As other people have noted, the tubes fall off of the machine, if you can get it running. I use it as a vacuum only. I have the vacuum tube taped on with duct tape, so that it will not fall off. I have had two of the vacuum bags. On one, the zipper… Read Full Review

“Poorly designed and badly made. As others have...”

Written on: 13/11/2006 by moterhead (1 review written)

Poorly designed and badly made. As others have commented, the fan disintegrated first time I used it as a vacuum. The hot exhaust burned a hole in my fleece and burned my stomach. The mulch bag sits next to the fan and I burned a hole in it. Attachment hoses continuously fall of. If Ryobi had left this as a blower only perhaps it would have been OK but if they sell it as a vacuum/mulcher then it should be able to vacuum and mulch. As I only had it for a week I can't comment on the durability of… Read Full Review

Written on: 04/09/2006 by Jeff3928 (1 review written)

I got my Ryobi RY08510 leaf blower as a Father's Day gift. The second time I used it, it would not start. Then Home Depot would not let me return or exchange it without a receipt. No way I'll ask my kid for a receipt! It's gutless and very cumbersome. Poor design, should not be on the market… Read Full Review

Written on: 04/09/2006 by marcheller (1 review written)

Our Ryobi RY08510 broke the first day of use, like another reviewer noted, the fan broke far too easily. I bought it last fall, and have not had satisfaction from Ryobi in ordering parts. I was directed to a local repair shop about 20 miles away. I just want to order parts online & fix it myself! I bought it based on price & the good use I've had from a Ryobi cordless drill, but after this, I would think twice before buying any other Ryobi product… Read Full Review

Written on: 22/07/2006 by gadgetman104 (1 review written)

I've had other Ryobi products over the years and was very pleased, but this Ryobi RY08510 blower has to be the cheapest built piece of lawn equipment I've ever purchased. The second time I used it to vacuum some leaves, I sucked up a small piece of bark. It broke the blower fan fin and broke a piece off the engine where it mounts to the blower housing… Read Full Review

Written on: 26/06/2006 by tlocke1 (1 review written)

The vacuum on the Ryobi RY08510 leaf blower is bad. The only way you can hold this unit for vacuuming, is to have the hot exhaust blowing on you. The extensions for the vacuum will not stay on, and they keep dropping off. The unit gets so hot that it melted the bag. I tossed the unit away. There are too many other things I can get sick on, other than an exhaust.

Poor design, bad product. Would not recommend this to anyone… Read Full Review
