Yup. There's a "plug" you put in the hole that feeds to the clipping bag that puts the mower in mulching mode. Very simple and easy, no tools needed.
I use this mode most frequently because the bag fills quickly.

Well to answer your question yes it does. In order to start the mower the user needs to press down the green button on the right of the handle, then pull down on the handle. The mower has a safety feature that turns it off once the handle is released.
Since this is a battery operated electric mower there isn't a rope to pull start it.

I see that the run time listed is 40 minutes. Is that using one battery or both? As in does each battery last 40 minutes so if you use both batteries you have a total run time of 80 minutes, or is it 20 minutes each for a total time of 40 minutes with both batteries?

Battery life is very dependent on how tall and thick the grass is. It also matters whether you use the bag and keep it emptied (less stress on batteries) or choose to have the mower cut the clippings into mulch (batteries run down faster).
Batteries recharge fairly quickly compared to old NICAD batteries that took hours to recharge. Fully charging a battery is said to take an hour and a half.
Two examples:
1. My first mowing with tall and thick spring new growth grass, it took both batteries just to mow my very small front yard. Finishing the entire yard took a couple days of mowing a section at a time.
2. My most recent mowing with grass healthy but not over-tall, I finished the front yard on one battery, switched to second battery and put depleted battery into charger, worked on the rest of the yard and almost completed it. By that time the first battery had enough charge to finish off to last unmowed patch. So starting with 2 charged batteries, I was able to mow the entire yard (which is small, but has some challenging mowing in the back because of steep slope) by recharging the depleted battery a bit while I worked with the second one.
Tips:
Mower tends to cut grass very short--move handle to highest setting
With gasoline mower you tend to keep it running as much as possible to avoid the hassle of restarting it. With electric mower, stopping to let the battery rest a few moments seems to extend battery life and restarting is as simple as pushing a button!

Answer: 
The battery takes about 90 minutes to fully recharge. A single battery I would have to estimate but depending on conditions such as grass height, thickness and deck height setting. One battery should cut about 2500sqft to about 5000sqft. Keep in mind that 5000 is a bit of a stretch unless you keep your grass short and the mower doesn't have to do much.

16 in. 40-Volt Lithium-ion Cordless Walk Behind Battery Push Mower with 2 Batteries is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 604.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great choice in cordless mower I am a lawn tractor guy with a 3 acre lawn. I purchased this mower to mow our garden enclosure that couldn't be accessed with the tractor. I had been cutting it with a gas powered weed whip. I didn't want another "piston engine" or to drag a cord around. This rig with two batteries which will mow 6-7000 square feet. I picked up the weed whip w/o battery for $90(the one that accepts Ryobi gas machine attachments). It works as well as my $300 gas machine. The grass catcher works well and the clippings make great garden mulch. These machines are much quieter than than similar sized gas machines. Now all I need is an electric tractor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love it! I bought this this year with two 40v batteries. I absolutely love it. It is quiet, powerful, and very light and easy to push. The last part is important because I have disabilities including two fake hips. Despite the light weigh it is powerful and the two batteries last the hour and a half it takes to mow my lawn with plenty power to spare. I bought this because I have other Ryobi products and have been quite impressed with the quality of the past purchases. I am very glad I chose this mower over the others available. Ryobi never lets me down. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Saves a lot of hassle This mower saves me the back breaking task of cord pulling on the gas mower and then half the time I couldn't even get it started. I love the push button start and the green value. I do wish the batteries would last a bit longer. It takes both of my batteries to do a less than half acre lot, but hey if we could solve the battery life problem on most everything we could rule the universe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love This Mower This mower is so easy to use and performed even better than I expected. With my first use, my grass was over a foot high and I wasn't sure if the mower could handle it, but I gave it a go and it was no problem at all. My yard is small (maybe 1,000 square feet) but with the grass being so high I went through both batteries before finishing, but the next time around with the grass at normal height I didn't even deplete one battery. It's light and easy to use, starts with the push of a button, and a tremendous improvement over my gas powered mower with the impossible pull start!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Find! This is probably an older model than the mower that caught my eye in the store, but!!...it comes with 2 batteries, not 1 like the current model. There are only a couple of minor differences that I can see such as the style and placement of the starter mechanism. These are changes, not improvements. This is the perfect mower for me. It is compact, easy to store, quiet, and easy to operate. It is not complex, messy, or require gasoline, oil or bulky long cords. Plus, it did the job in my medium-sized, flat yard. I am pleased with the purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small yards only need apply. Downsides: Turns like a river barge. Bag smallish, stick with mulching if you can. You need the strength of The Mountain to put the adjusters tight enough to restrict the push handle or it will move on you as you try to turn. Upsides: Relatively lightweight. Reasonably quiet and the sound it makes doesn't carry very far. Gets in tight enough minimal weed whacking is required. Height adjustment mechanism is fantastic. Charge length seems variable. Longer and thicker grass definitely draws the batteries down faster.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small but able The mower is a bit smaller then the previous electric mower we had. The smaller size is not a disadvantage, in fact it makes it easier to mow. My wife, has no trouble pushing the mower and getting around obstacles. It is very maneuverable. We have gotten anywhere from 35 to 45 minute charges per battery. The batteries to come with a charging indicator on them. Push the button and you get to see how much charge is left. It is easy to switch out the batteries. Getting the two batteries is recommended from our stand point. A battery change is just a good point to take a break and get a drink of water and the second battery. The handles fold up easily for more compact storage. We ordered our mower from Home Depot online and things went great. No problems getting the mower and none expected with the mower.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for a SMALL-MEDIUM sized lawn If you have a small yard then this is the easiest, most convienent, little mower for you. If you think you have a big yard or might have a big yard, this is NOT the mower for you. The battery is impressive for small yard mowing but not many batteries on today's market can sustain for large yards. Decent mower though!
