Ryobi 38cc gas backpack leaf blower

Gas leaf blowers... I thought they were illegal now?

2023.05.31 11:10 SamuelAnonymous Gas leaf blowers... I thought they were illegal now?

I freaking hate the things. Beyond being utterly useless, adding unnecessary pollutants, and the obvious noise nuisance... They're dangerous. I cycle, and on multiple occasions, while cycling on a busy road, I've been blinded by ignorant leaf blowers directing a gust of dust and debris straight into my face.
Needless to say, I was happy when I learned they'd be outlawed. But nothing seems to have changed. On my road, the same people play the same games of blower tag, pointlessly bouncing crap back and forth between one location and the other.
They're illegal, right? Is there just zero enforcement? Do people not know, or is it just that they don't give a shit? Is it worth bothering to report violations? Are there any repercussions for willingly ignoring this law?
Anyway. Vent off. I hate leaf blowers.

2023.05.30 02:23 poop-emoji1 Leaf blower runs great then stops

I have a toro t25 leaf blower that was leaking gas last season so I replaced the air filter, carb, fuel lines including fuel filter. Leaking problem solved. Now it starts great and runs for about 2 minutes with no choke then dies. I pulled the fuel line out of the tank and there is fuel in the line. I’m thinking it’s a fuel issue but I’m about out of ideas. What am I missing??

2023.05.29 19:56 trirod01 Milwaukee vs Ego for outdoor power collection?

I already have a decent collection of M18 tools for use around the house. But now I’m looking for a battery powered leaf blower, chainsaw and trimmer. I already have gas versions of all of these but there’s plenty of times where it would be a lot easier just to use a battery version for lighter duty work. It seems like I can get all 3 for around $700 in either brand, with 2 batteries. I like the idea of Ego’s 56v architecture (presumably their 5Ah battery that comes with their chainsaw will run a lot longer than Milwaukee’s 6Ah battery that I was including in my pricing comparison above). But of course it would be easier to stick with Milwaukee for everything - I would have extra spare batteries and no need to plug in another charger.
Ego gets better reviews in Consumer Reports but Milwaukee still does OK there. Thoughts?

2023.05.29 08:21 metalgearsolid2 Ego ST1623t for a short person

I was very hesitant at first when trying to make the decision of switching to battery powered lawn equipment. I bought the Ego 650 cfm leaf blower last year with the 5 amp battery, Its an amazing machine. Very light with good power. Then my mower broke down last week and I was thinking of getting another gas mower. I saw some good reviews of the Ego mower. I went out to Lowes and bought it. Very light and cuts very well! The sound level is also a plus. So now I'm thinking of switching to the Ego trimmer as well. I knew my gas trimmer was loud before but now its really noticeable while using the Ego stuff. I went to Lowes today to try the ST1623t and its very heavy! I also saw a video on Youtube that its not really good for short people as Ego older trimmers? I'm only 5'5''. I know it has an option to change the length but not sure if its a good fit for me.

2023.05.29 05:24 yuniorsoprano Can someone please help me choose a Ryobi bundle?

Hi all,
As the title says, I'm trying to choose a Ryobi bundle. My wife and I are closing on our first home in a little less than a month, and I'm pretty much starting from scratch in terms of tools.
Some other relevant background: I'm in the NYC area, so my property is pretty small (4000 sq ft), but I am on a corner and there are lots of trees on or near our lot, so I think it'll be important to have a high quality leaf blower.
Also probably relevant: I'm ignorant about all things tools and DIY, so please bear with me.
Ok, so I'm looking to buy a lawn mower, an edger, and a leaf blower, and I'm trying to choose between these three options.
OPTION 1: https://tinyurl.com/ucnrttm5
OPTION 2: https://tinyurl.com/yvs9vvfw
OPTION 3: https://tinyurl.com/28yab96u (lawn mower only) + https://tinyurl.com/5yw945a4 (edger and leaf blower)
The benefit of option 3 is that it seems to be a much less expensive way to go, but I don't know enough to know what the trade-offs are for that cheaper price.
I would appreciate any feedback at all.
Also, can someone explain to me the benefits of buying everything or most things within the same ecosystem when it comes to battery operated tools? The main benefit is that all 40V Ryobi products can use the same battery and charger, is that right?
Thank you in advance for helping a newbie get acquainted with this stuff!
Ended up getting this mower: https://www.homedepot.com/p/RYOBI-40V-HP-Brushless-20-in-Cordless-Battery-Walk-Behind-Push-Mower-with-6-0-Ah-Battery-and-Charger-RY401170/317061059
... and this trimmer and leaf blower: https://www.homedepot.com/p/RYOBI-40V-Cordless-Attachment-Capable-String-Trimmer-and-Leaf-Blower-w-Extra-5-Pack-of-Pre-Cut-Line-4-0Ah-Battery-Charger-RY40940-AC/317457130
Total spent: $600.
Without this community I likely wouldn't have been able to make this educated purchase, and I also probably would've spent more money, so BIG thanks to all who shared their thoughts and knowledge!

2023.05.27 22:15 Jordaneer What is my best deal for getting a weed eater?

I got an ego mower (not positive on the model but it's the dual blade 21 inch mower with 7.5 ah battery) back at the end of April and then quickly discovered I needed a second battery so I could charge one while using the other one and so I bought the 615 cfm leaf blower combo kit because it was about the same price as a 4ah battery but it included the battery charger and the blower for effectively free and since I didn't have an ego blower, I figured this would be a good one to get.
I do lawn care for a few people and as I was doing one of the lawns yesterday that is pretty big (over 2/3 acre) and it's grown significantly in the past week and so that used up my batteries faster than they could recharge so it seems like it makes sense to get an ego weed eater that comes with a battery, especially because I kind of hate the Ryobi 18v brushless one I use now, it has really bad trigger lag and vibrates a lot.
I'm looking at this one as what seems like the best current deal? Are there any better ones I should look at?

2023.05.27 19:36 can_i_pet_ur_cat Battery help! Flashes red and then red and green

I recently bought a new Ryobi weed eater and leaf blower combo. It came with an 18V battery. I used it once with the weed eater and it worked fine. Used the battery all the way up. Thought it had been charging. When I went to use it today unfortunately the battery is dead. I plugged it into the charger and the charger starts flashing red for about 10 seconds, then flashes green and red? Is it so discharged that the charger isn't recognizing it? Could it be asleep? Or is it just flat out dead? Any help is appreciated!!

2023.05.23 04:33 exclamatoryuser Cylinder Scoring on Craftsman Backpack Blower

I picked up a Craftsman 46cc backpack blower out of the garbage the other day. It's in beautiful condition and looks never before used. If it was used it was definitely only once (I'm assuming someone used gas instead of 2 stroke). Anyways, the engine is seized. I haven't taken the engine apart yet but when looking through the hole after removing the spark plug, it looks like part of the piston ring broke and is lodged in-between the piston and cylinder wall. I'm afraid the whole engine will be shot and it makes me upset because the rest of the backpack blower looks in never before used condition. Are there any ways that are easy for a beginner to repair cylinder scoring? Or is there anywhere I could buy a replacement head and piston ring if I can get it all apart? I'm new to this so I'm just wondering what you would do in this situation. Thanks.

2023.05.22 22:16 CasePeanut Which 18V Blower?

Which 18V Blower?
I'm interested in a new 18V Ryobi blower, but there are so many options that's it's hard to choose.
I have an old Black & Decker battery powered blower. It's terrible and has a really short battery life. I'm all-in on Ryobi 18V, so it makes a lot of sense to swap out the old B&D for something on Team Green.
In order of frequency, I use the blower for 1) clearing dust and and debris out of my garage, 2) blowing dust off my deck and 3) some light leaf blowing on hard surfaces.
I'm in the US and already have all the batteries I need, so I'm really just interested in the bare tool from HD or DTO. No rush, so I can wait for a sale. Which 18V Ryobi would you choose?

2023.05.22 21:11 Pinstrip3 Cordless weed wacker

I'm thinking about getting one for light duty work, specifically 2x18v Makita dur369, and I'm wondering if it's a viable option or run times make it rather a gadget than a tool.
I've got a really powerful pro, gas powered one already. Cordless would be for personal, light use only. Will I squeeze 30-60 minutes out of it with 4x 6ah batteries or is it more like a leaf blower or angle grinder power consumption level?

2023.05.22 20:31 SegaNaLeqa Leaf Blower Tips Please

Update: Ended up renting a push behind leaf blower and it was amazing!
Hi everyone, not sure if this is the right community for it, but I’m taking care of an elderly neighbour’s lawn for them and need some tips. They want their leaves removed, they don’t care if it’s by rake or blower, and they unfortunately don’t want them just mulched up with a mower for the lawn.
I’ve been attempting with the rake, but it’s too much for my back. So I gave my little electric leaf blower a try, it’s a Makita battery operated, and it’s not able to handle the job either (it ate up all of my batteries in only a matter of 10 minutes, and recharge time makes it infeasible).
How I was approaching it with the battery operated blower, was I would loosen the leaves the best I could with the rake, and then I would (try to) blow them off to the bush line. These leaves were pretty stuck in the lawn as they had withstood a Northern Canada winter and heavy rain last month, so I figured that would make things easier on the blower.
So now where I need tips is that I will be renting a gas powered/backpack leaf blower for the first time ever. All I know about the specs is that it’s a Stihl brand blower. What can I expect as a difference to the blower I’m used to, and should I still loosen the leaves with a rake first or will the increased power be able to handle the post winterain leaves as is?

2023.05.22 19:02 SegaNaLeqa Leaf Blower Tips Please

Hi everyone, not sure if this is the right community for it, but I’m taking care of an elderly neighbour’s lawn for them and need some tips. They want their leaves removed, they don’t care if it’s by rake or blower, and they unfortunately don’t want them just mulched up with a mower for the lawn.
I’ve been attempting with the rake, but it’s too much for my back. So I gave my little electric leaf blower a try, it’s a Makita battery operated, and it’s not able to handle the job either (it ate up all of my batteries in only a matter of 10 minutes, and recharge time makes it infeasible).
How I was approaching it with the battery operated blower, was I would loosen the leaves the best I could with the rake, and then I would (try to) blow them off to the bush line. These leaves were pretty stuck in the lawn as they had withstood a Northern Canada winter and heavy rain last month, so I figured that would make things easier on the blower.
So now where I need tips is that I will be renting a gas powered/backpack leaf blower for the first time ever. All I know about the specs is that it’s a Stihl brand blower. What can I expect as a difference to the blower I’m used to, and should I still loosen the leaves with a rake first or will the increased power be able to handle the post winterain leaves as is?

Where do people get all of these??
This looks similar to the place I went to buy a leaf blower the other day, except it was at a storage shed. The whole deal seemed a bit sketch, but the guy was nice, added gas, and tested it before I left. The leaf blower was half off retail.
Where do people get all of this stuff? I could use some new tools and it would be nice to have a little extra cash.

How is the quality on the 18v 3/8 brushless ratchet? I like my air ratchet, but of course getting in to some spots with an air hose tagging along... With the HD Ryobi Days coming up, getting my Father's Day list ready. 40v leaf blower, etc. Might as well get a ratchet as well if they are any good.

2023.05.21 19:46 No-Regret-2247 Husband leaf blowing with our 9 week old 😖

Sometimes, rarely, I ask my husband to hold the baby while I take a shower. This time I came out to him leaf blowing with the baby in a carrier. I'm so f'in pissed. I'm guessing this was going on for 5 minutes or so before I turned the water off. Do I need to worry about the baby's hearing? Are they signs of damage to look for? It was an electric leaf blower at least (not quite as loud as gas).

2023.05.21 17:38 DarkFlyingApparatus What is the female equivalent of the massive male housework list?

Thank you all for your insights! I've come to the conclusion that I was a bit too gullible when reading through this list for the first time, and should have dismissed many of the points instantly.
Most of the tasks are indeed:
So thanks again for opening my eyes on this and seeing the actual value of this list Mr. Farrell made! And also on not creating the female equivalent I was asking for, which would rightly be very toxic as said by u/faeduster
So there was this post on another sub about how men and women generally divide tasks around the house / the relationship. And how men do more housework than women realise. There was a list added to the post which was created by a man called Warren Farrell called the male housework list.
While reading that list I was surprised by the massive amount of things on there! My second surprise was that I, the woman in our relationship, still do most of the relevant tasks of this list. But that's perhaps something I should talk to him about, because I feel like I'm burning up with the mental and physical load of all the housework I do. Especially since I'm the also the one with the full-time job who brings in the majority of our income...
The total housework list I had in my head was way shorter than just Mr Farrell's male housework list. This was my list:
Since this male housework list is way more extensive than I could have imagined, I was wondering what a female equivalent of this list would be. Because I must be missing something here and might be doing even more things I didn't imagine I was doing.

So my question is:

What are all the female coded (hidden) household/relationship tasks that women perform?

Here is the list that Farrell came up with:
Activities most likely to break an arm, leg, or neck, or to crack a skull: In your relationship, who climbs tall ladders or checks out the roof? For example, who uses ladders to do house painting (e.g., reaching for a spot we’ve missed that’s too far away on a homemade scaffold on a windy day), or to clean outside windows; or to go into the attic? Who shovels wet snow off a roof to avoid roof damage, resulting in many men slipping off the roof every winter?
A man who falls off a roof or ladder is lucky if he breaks only an arm; some men, though, are paralyzed for life, or killed; others find shoveling snow off a roof leads to problems that get them classified in one of the next two categories.
  1. Activities most likely to trigger heart attacks: Shoveling snow off a driveway or sidewalk; pushing a car that’s out of gas off a crowded street into the gas station; playing tag, soccer, or basketball with the kids for a “little too long” while trying to teach the children that a parent can be a playmate too; or carrying a sleepy child from an upstairs bed to the backseat of a car and back into bed again without waking up the child, only to find Dad’s heartbeat getting erratic and pain thrusting through his arm.
  2. Activities most likely to cause lower back problems and hernia operations: Moving furniture or twisting his back as he juggles a heavy suitcase into the backseat of a two-door car (or behind other suitcases in a trunk); or trying to carry a IV or a computer up a down staircase; or moving the refrigerator or some file cabinets; or moving tables at a church event or picnic.
  3. Assembly: Mail-order products, toys, bikes, furniture, bookcases, beds; putting up kids’ plastic pools, backyard tents.
  4. Barbecuing: Shopping for barbecue, charcoal, propane; basting, marinating, cooking; cleaning up of grill, tongs, ashes, etc.
  5. Bodyguard: at home (e.g., who usually checks it out in the middle of the night when you and your partner are awakened by a noise that sounds like someone has just broken into your home, and you know they could have a gun?); in public places (who plays bodyguard when nightfall turns a beautiful park into a dangerous park or a quaint side street into a dangerous alley; or when a lonely hiking trail proves to be a rattlesnake haven; or when a ski slope becomes an avalanche?). We've all read stories of a man saving a woman from a burning house or a raging river or a crashed car. Women often save children in these situations—and even lift cars to save children. Although I’ve asked over a million people (on IV and radio) to send me a story of a woman risking her life to save an adult man, so far, no stories. Every time a woman and man walk together in a public place, he unconsciously serves as an unpaid bodyguard.
  6. Camping: It starts with taking psychological responsibility for avoiding disaster (checking weather predictions and safety of the location, buying correct tent and camping gear, taking responsibility for not getting lost, knowing how to use a compass, etc.), then carrying the primary backpack (often including the stove and a kerosene lamp), erecting the tent, dig¬ ging drainage trenches, gathering firewood, building the fire, hoisting food away from animals. The man is often the camping home buyer, home mover, and homemaker.
  7. Car buying: Price negotiation, Consumer Guide/Blue Book- type research.
  8. Car maintenance and repair: Checking hoses, belts, tire pressures, vacuuming inside, applying Armor All; comparisons of prices with mechanics, tire changing (see also Emergencies).
  9. Carpentry: From putting up shelves (in garage, basement, and closets) to repairing loose fence slats, to making bookcases, to building a doghouse.
  10. Christmas: Putting up lights on house and tree; tree purchase, set-up, dismantling and disposal; retrieving boxes of ornaments from dusty attic or storage area.
  11. “Male cleaning”: Car washing (and waxing); cleaning all painting tools for reuse (brushes, rollers, pans, guides); cleaning out the basement, attic, fireplace and gutters (the darkest, dirtiest, hottest and coldest parts of the house); cleaning filters of air conditioning and heating units; cleaning yard; bathing of dogs; and, if there’s a pool or Jacuzzi. . . . (See also: Barbecuing; Diaper Changing, Male Equivalents of; Guns and Weapons; Activities most likely to break. . . . )
  12. Coaching-as-child care: Baseball (1-Ball, CAP Leagues, Little League), softball (e.g., Bobby Soxers), football (Pop Warner), roller hockey, field hockey, ice hockey, soccer; more informal coaching-as-child care via "playing together” in basketball, or throwing, catching, and hitting a ball; instructions in individualized sports such as tennis; instructions in self- defense (aikido, boxing, wrestling).
  13. Computer buying: Researching best hardware and software; comparing prices, new vs. used markets, etc.
  14. Confrontations—with neighbors or strangers: “Go tell the neighbors their dogs barking too loud.” Or, you’ve just gotten into a car accident with a stranger; who approaches the other driver when everyone is emotionally off center?
  15. Dead animal disposal: DAD quickly comes to mean Dead Animal Disposer when the gerbil dies, the rat’s been trapped, when the mouse has been lead into temptation, or when the dog’s been run over and the street has blood all over. What’s worse for some dads, though, is having to kill the almost-dead animal—when DAD means Dying Animal Disposer.
  16. Decks: Building, sanding, staining, sealing.
  17. Diaper changing, male equivalents of: Plunging a backed-up toilet; wiping up a child's vomit when carsick on a vacation; cleaning up after dog doo from own dog and neighbors'.
  18. Digging: Holes and ditches, removing of boulders, tree stumps, etc.
  19. Dinner when company’s visiting: Meat carving, wine opening, cocktail making (careful guys, most women still do most everything else when company's visiting).
  20. Disciplining of kids: "Wait till Daddy comes home."
  21. Dragon-killing—modern version: Swatting flies, stepping on roaches, squishing spiders—all without a sword (or, for pacifist performers, removing the spider without hurting it!).
  22. Driving: To and from functions that both sexes go to together, especially when conditions are hazardous (e.g., when caught in rush hour in a strange city; when caught in snow on an icy mountain road; when caught in heavy rain, wind, and fog at night, or when in a foreign country), or when both are exhausted or have had a bit too much to drink; on long trips, especially late at night while the family sleeps; or on a motorcycle (have you ever seen a woman on a motorcycle with a man hanging on?). The automobile and motorcycle are the modern-day white horse. Like the man on the white horse, his role involves more accidents; the man on the white horse, though, never had to worry about a DU I citation!
  23. Emergency prevention: In home (e.g., noticing and repairing frayed wires, plugs, sockets, smoke detectors); in car (putting chains on tires; being certain all the cars' fluids [oil, transmission, anti-freeze] are being changed on schedule, tool kit and flares are adequate, flashlight has batteries, etc.); via nature (battening down windows, putting sand bags in the trunk before a blizzard, making sure trees aren't creating a hazard to house or people should a storm arise), on the town (making sure there’s cash in the wallet and gas in the car).
  24. When emergencies arise despite prevention: Sandbagging; changing a tire on a cold night in the rain on a dangerous part of the road in the bad part of town; taking the walk for five gallons of gas when the car runs out; or risking putting the battery cable on the wrong side of the battery.
  25. Post-emergencies: Roof repair (shingles, holes, leaks, etc.); removal of fallen trees and branches; rebuilding and repairing after damage; or arranging for, supervising and helping with rebuilding and repair.
  26. Fences: Building fences from stone or wood, or installing a wire fence.
  27. Fire building, wood chopping and carting wood indoors while not getting the carpet dirty.
  28. Garbage: Real men take out the garbage because, you see, it's in their genes to know how to use the garbage can cover as a shield should anything happen in that journey from the castle to the street. If he takes out the recycled items and the garden waste, it’s just because he wants to protect his turf of being the garbage man (excuse me, waste management engineer).
  29. Gas/electric failures: Resetting clocks and circuit switches; relighting pilot lights; troubleshooting.
  30. Gift-giving as a contribution to maintaining the romance: We often say men aren’t romantic, but we forget that it is men who are more likely to give the flowers she likes; the diamonds with the right 4 Cs (carat size, clarity, cut and color [then he worries about the 5th C—cost]); the earrings with the hypoallergenic studs; the perfume with the scent she prefers; the right-size ring for the correct finger with the right stone and her preferred cut; or to choose a restaurant that fits her definition of romantic, arranging the occasion, taking her there, and paying. Many a man has never had even one of these things done for him by even one woman one time (just as some women have never had a man do their laundry, cook a meal, or even make a cup of tea).
  31. Guns and weapon: Purchase, cleaning, usage, and safety for protecting family from thieves in city and from animals in rural areas.
  32. Hanging: Of heavy pictures, wall hangings, clocks, phones (especially when molly bolts, toggle bolts, or drywall or plastic anchors are necessary)
  33. Installation/hook-up: Of washer, dryer, computer, TV, cables, and antennas.
  34. Life insurance: Purchasing and choice of carrier.
  35. Risky investment management (stocks, joint ventures, rental property): The investments that inspire blame when they fail and induce stress even when they succeed.
  36. Opening: Jars, doors, big boxes, paint cans, windows that are stuck or frozen.
  37. Option generating: In many couples, the man generates the options, the woman generates the rejections. For example, he asks, “Where would you like to go for dinner?” She answers, “Anywhere.” “Chinese?” he offers. “We just had that,” she reminds. “Italian?” “loo heavy.” “How about that new place—what's its name?” he tries. “I hear that's expensive.” When it comes to restaurants and to movies, the man often generates the options and the woman often selects even immediately after she's said, “It makes no difference.” Option-generating often involves having one's ideas rejected, which can be emotionally taxing.
  38. Painting: Inside and outside of the home, and the laying down of masking tape, sheets, and other painting preparation (See also: Male cleaning and Activities most likely to break an arm . . . ).
  39. Patio and sidewalk making: And sealing over cracks, requiring cement mixing, building of frame, making it level, and living with every mistake because it's “laid on concrete.”
  40. Planting: New trees, bushes, larger plants.
  41. Plastering, spackling, grouting, caulking, and mortaring: And creating the plaster, spackle, grout and mortar mixtures.
  42. Poisons, exposure to: Use of insecticides to spray for ants and roaches; or to spray trees, flowers, garden vegies.
  43. Programming: The VCR (“Honey, before we leave, I can't miss the special on male housework; would you program the VCR?”), or the CD player, the telephone speed dial.
  44. Pumping gas, paying for gas, changing oil: When there's both a man and woman in the car, I notice men pump the gas about 80 percent of the time in Northeast 8c West Coast urban areas and university towns, and almost 100 percent of the time anywhere else.
  45. Reading the business and financial pages: To get a feel for business trends that may affect career decisions and information related to investment decisions (which may just look like him “goofing off reading the paper” but is the equivalent of a woman reading recipes in Better Homes & Gardens or Family Circle [still the best selling magazines to women]). On the other hand, guys, the sports pages don't count!
  46. Remodeling: Taking down walls, putting in windows, finishing garage or basement, and, for better men than I, building entire new rooms.
  47. Repairs: Toilets, faucets, plumbing, electrical, window screens, sliding glass and screen doors, problems with cabinets, doors, etc.
  48. Sharpening: Knives, mower blades, pruning shears.
  49. Shopping for: Paint, hardware, lumber, spackle, lawnmower, tools, much of the "bulk” shopping (Office Depot, Home Depot, Price Club, CostCo, etc.) (See Also: Computer buying; Car buying; Stereo aTid video buying; and Life insurance, for additional "Male Shopping” categories)
  50. Stereo and video buying: Hooking up, troubleshooting, repair arranging, and supervising.
  51. Toy and bike care: Oiling, painting, and fixing kids' bikes, swing sets, jungle gyms, merry-go-rounds, and other outdoor play equipment.
  52. Weather guard: Guarding a woman against exposure to rain, sleet, and snow by forfeiting his jacket to a woman who is cold even when he is also cold; walking between a woman and a street in which cars and trucks might splash water or slush onto their clothes; scraping ice and snow off a car windshield on a freezing morning; dropping the family off at a restaurant or movie when it's pouring, then parking and walking to the restaurant or theater in the rain (especially if no one has an umbrella); warming up the car before the family gets in it; bringing in the newspaper on a rainy morning; salting the driveway, sidewalk, and stairs when the rain has frozen over, so that if anyone falls, he does .‘(See Also: "Activities most likely to trigger heart attacks” and "Emergency” categories).
  53. Yard work: Lawn mowing, fertilizing, weeding, clipping, leaf raking, tree trimming, etc.
