The Ryobi 18V One+ Hybrid Air Cannon is a high performance air compressor with a unique design. Its main advantage over other fans is its low noise level.
It has been designed to provide superior cooling efficiency at lower speeds than other fans, which results in better airflow and less noise during normal operation. The fan’s compact size makes it ideal for small spaces.

Model Size Max RPM(rpm) Max Power (Watts) Model 1 CFM 36″ x 24″ x 48″ 0.9A 1600 Model 2 CFM 40″ x 24″ x 60″ 1.2A 2200
The two smaller air cannons are mainly for personal use, like keeping yourself cool during hot summer days. They are available in two models: the Model 1, with a single speed of 1800 RPM and the Model 2, with a high and low speed of 1200 RPM and 1800 RPM respectively.
They have a power draw of 0.9 Amps and 1.2 Amps respectively.
The larger air cannons are mainly for use in industrial settings. They are available in two models: the Model 3 at $129.99, and the Model 4 at $214.99.
Both of these models have a power draw of 2 Amps and can be connected to a Ryobi One+ battery with the correct adapter cord to save you from running multiple extension cords around your workspace.
The Ryobi Air Cannon’s compressor is powered by a high efficiency, thermally protected motor. A 2.6 Gal air tank provides a constant stream of cool air at a maximum pressure of 125 psi.
The fan is made with an oil-less design that eliminates the need for regular maintenance or replacement parts.
The Air Cannons require the use of 18V One+ batteries to function. Use a One+ battery that is not fully charged or close to its cycle life to extend its life span.
The Air Cannon also works with any 18V appliance that requires a maximum of 2 Amps, which covers most tools in the One+ system.
The Air Cannon boasts a water tank for humidity. The tank provides hours of moisture for you to personalize your space.
Change the humidity level with the turn of a knob.
Storing the Ryobi air cannons is a cinch. The side panels fold in to allow easy storage.
An included set of ground stakes and ratcheting tie downs secure the unit during transportation. A cord management clip helps you store your extension cord for added convenience.
The Air Cannon’s hybrid design gives it an edge over other designs. Its low noise levels and high efficient air flow make it a great fan for personal or professional use.
Its small size and portability make it ideal for use in a wide range of situation that require air flow or lowered temperatures.
