    Can confirm that the Ryobi 18V ONE+ blower is useless for snow. Not that it was my primary concern, but it just doesn't hve the velocity required. Moves leaves fine.
    Ehh...I don't know how much snow you got, but up here in the far north I had up to 1.5" in spots. My Dewalt blower had trouble in spots, especially since it got packed down from kids/parents going to school.

    I did see that Rona finally has bare tools available for the two smaller snow blowers that you can truck or ship to store. Lowes currently only has the full kits if you already have batteries.

    Can't decide if I want to get the bare one or sell my batteries and get the kit though.

    The Kobalt blower is fine for a small dusting of snow on the stairs but I'm not able to do much else with it. Guess I'll have to shovel like a pleb

    This is the one that I have and it performs decent for fluffy and dry snow.

    Short of a backback blower, you could use this bad boi instead. In fact, it has higher velocity and moves more volumn than some backpack blowers.

    I using one of these too. It moves plenty of air, but it desperately needs a smaller nozzle to lift snow.
    Biggest issue is runtime, I only get 15 minutes on the 6Ah battery that came with my mower. Well, that and the battery shit the bed and won't charge anymore (which Ryobi batteries are well known for).

    Everyone here is posting cordless electric blowers, which are less annoying but suck compared to gas blowers.

    And they're all abnoxious at moving snow.

    Get a damn snowblower if you have a pussy back.

    Agreed! I got 3 neighbors that try blowing there snow off of their driveway and I always shake me head. They start before me and I can have a 3 car driveway cleaned off faster with a 30" snow pusher and they are still working on theirs.

    looks like the mower/trimmer greenworks combo msrp is going up to $850, but before then it's on sale for the old sale price of $500. Could be the last chance at this price

    Honestly 2ah is not enough.

    That's 160 wh. So if the mower is even close to 1hp, it would only last roughly 12 min.

    Anything under 1hp is way underpowered.

    I have some 60v 6ah Dewalt tools (chainsaw, trimmer, blower) and it's pretty great, but they don't make a mower.

    I've got 2000sq.ft of lawn and can mow it at least twice with the 2amp battery. You aren't running at peak HP the whole time unless you're trying to cut 5" of soaking wet grass.

    Indeed. The motor has two stages (maybe more?) and unless you are in some thick stuff it is in a lower power mode. no issues with me getting 40 minutes plus out of it.

    My snow thrower can eat through the 2ah batteries quickly though. 6-8" of wet snow I can do my driveway and sidewalk with 1 battery (20 minutes?), but if I wanted to help neighbours I need to switch to the second. With 3 batteries (two chargers) you could run the tool continuously. There is a 5ah battery, but I don't have a use case for it.

    It comes with two batteries and they only take 30 min to charge. Most people should be able to manage both front and back yards with the two and the quick charging unless you have way above average size yards.

    Any decent mower is 6.5hp, but I guess if its working for you guys, that's great. I bought some of the early tools with small batteries, and they sucked, and I don't want to be swapping batteries before I am finished an job. It's bad for them to drain them right down. Personally, I prefer to only go down to about 50% by the time the job is finished.

    Anyway, finally started buying dewalt for all my cordless tools, and to be honest, I didnt think I would see a quality difference, but it's night and day with stuff like circular saws and reciprocating saws. If they made a mower, I would be all over it. Their chainsaw is frankly unbelievable.

    Anyone have one of those multi-head tools? Specifically wondering if anyone's used that Ryobi Expand-it powered broom attachment(or anything similar) for snow clearing.

    Haha. I have the Stihl Kombi version. It's insane bad ass, but it's gas.

    The key is to buy these things BEFORE a massive dump of snow.
