Ryobi really needs to not make their corded products the same color as their cordless.

Also, no idea how this works but would love to laugh and watch a Slickdealer post their video removing 6 inches of snow from their driveway with this.
I have a kobalt cordless much like this and have used it to clear a 6" snowfall. Wasn't delightful but better than hand shoveling.
Most brands do corded and cordless the same color, why should Ryobi change?

Why would the color change? Name a single other manufacturer that does that.

they changed colors when they went from their old blue/yellow to this neon greenish.

it helps identify a product line and cordless should be separated from corded
note: hybrid could be a mix of both

marketing 101.
Again, nobody does that and it would be completely pointless. If it were a good idea, i assure you that you wouldn't have been the first to think of it.

Oh, sorry I guess I forgot:

"Every choice and trend in corporate America is smart. You're a fool to think otherwise. Even if they did it differently a couple of decades ago, and will change back a decade or two from now."

You have no good ideas, and nothing to contribute in the face of their corporate wisdom.

Every major tool system [that doesn't sell off a truck and rely on blind brand loyalty] has changed livery (except maybe Makita, and even they seem to be suffering from a bad case of blue-green blindness -- I have a fully blue 1980s 6v Makita). Corded tools used to be "bare metal", then they went to "partly painted with prominent bare metal" to look more modern. Corded tools, AFAIR, started with [mostly] plastic chasses, often with silver-painted metal or plastic regions as a pretense at toughness.

What color are Craftsman corded/cordless tools? Red? Black? Blue? Bare Metal? I have all four (and probably more) from when "Craftsman" meant something and wasn't a branding joke. Black and Decker corded drills have been many colors, including "avocado with silver painted metal up front", but their cordless models had different schemes. Skillsaw and the major pro-sumer models went through many colors (often with distinctions between corded/cordless) until the MBAs began dictating "unified brand image".

I have the Toro version of this. Handles the powder snow we get here in Colorado just fine, though I'm not so sure if it would handle a wet heavy snow like the Midwest or East coast gets.

That said, I only pull it out if it snows over 6". You still need a regular shovel to scrape the very bottom this misses. So it ends up being twice the work
