    for a long time, I’ve felt that Ryobi was very innovative, maybe more so then most other tool manufacturers. Unfortunatly, the quality doesn’t match the innovation.

    I don’t think I have any Ryobi tools, DeWalt, B&D, Craftsman, IR, Makita, and Bosch. Quality maybe why.

    Well it’s the classic example that you get what you pay for. Ryobi tools are generally (always?) significantly cheaper then those other brands.

    I think if the same innovations would have been brought out in TTI’S Milwaukee line, I think it would be a significant larger seller.

    yeah, it isn’t going to cut it where I am at right now (Minnesnowta) but I could see the convenience of a cordless one… I do not think there are very many cordless snowblowers out in the market, so that is an impressive move by Ryobi

    For sure, I wouldn’t even think it was possible to be honest. Well at least for a decent powered one with a good runtime. It does handle 6 inches of snow though.

    Cordless snow blower. Well somebody has to be first. Interesting concept. There are now cordless chainsaws, cordless lawn mowers, why not a cordless snow blower.

    It’s the ways of tomorrow. Pretty thing e everything will be cordless.

    The way of tomorrow is that a lot of gas powered tools will be illegal to use, thus replaced by cordless or electrical tools.

    lol me too, but it is what powers their outdoor tool line.

    They have all sorts of things that run off of their 40v batteries.

    You got that right Mark and your state is leading the way.

    Yeah, well sorry about that, I had nothing to do with it. Not saying it’s necessarily a bad thing though.

    I suppose it might work well for people in areas that don’t get a lot of snow. Might be a cool gift for older parents or grandparents that still have to shovel a few inches now and then.
