Just add in here, the refund value of the blower is 138, which helped to bring the cost of the snow blower to about 600 + tax.

I don't know about this particular model, but I've found other 40v cordless snowblowers under-powered for a double driveway. I'd recommend sticking to 120v plug-in models if going electric, or buying at least an 80v+ model if you need cordless.

Even Greenworks' 80V brushless model with a 2Ah battery is meh. I doubt 40v does much.

Ya 40v single stage won't wow you. I got the kobalt 40v snow blower last season for $239 with battery. I doubt the ryobi one is much better. Its meh. I think you need to go 2 stage and 80v to have it really work well. For 239 I dont regret my purchase. But no way I'd spend 700 on something comparible.

Battery voltage isn't the main deciding factor for snow blower performance. The design of the machine is much more important.

Greenworks/Kobalt 80v 20" model is crap, but the Toro 60V is 1 of the best. There is also a greenworks 80v 22" model with a newer design that should be better than the 20" but I haven't seen any good reviews.

The previous gen Ryobi 40v blower is also crap but this is a newer model that uses 2x 40v batts & a new design so it will be better.

In terms of performance, CR rates this ryobi better than the 56v Ego, just that reliability is still questionable.

The snow blower reduced to $649 and still with a free leaf blower. The max refund value of the leaf blower is $133, which make the snow blower to $510 + tax

Bought it early Nov, just got the price adjusted without problem~

I was in the Coquitlam Home Depot on Monday and there were 4 of these Ryobi 40 volt 21 inch snowblowers in stock on the floor at the $498 price. I talked to the department manager and she offered me right off the bat $50 more off at $448.

I came back tonight (2 days later) to take another look and the snow blowers were all removed and I saw the same department manager and she said all the spring merchandise is now on the floor. I asked about the $448 price for the snowblower and she said she could pull one down for me with a forklift and they also had the floor model that was boxed up again that I could buy for $400. I bought the floor model that was re-boxed for $400 + tax.

It looks like there will be no more snow this year in Vancouver so I will open up the box and test out the Ryobi the next few days to make sure it is in good working shape so I can return it if I am not happy with it.
