We had no problems with the bagger. Just have to be careful how you lift it out or you get clippings falling out.

This is the end of the second season with this mower and the Self-Propel just stopped working. Anyone know how to fix?

Hi Tammy, Thanks for your question on the RYOBI 20 in. 40-Volt Brushless Lithium-Ion Cordless Smart TREK Self-Propelled Walk Behind Mower w/6.0 Ah Battery and Charger RY40LM30. To engage the Smart TREK Self-Propelled feature: Move the handle lock to the unlocked position. NOTE: The self-propelled feature will not engage unless the handle lock is in the unlocked position. To operate the mower manually, move the handle lock to the locked position, start the mower, and push the mower forward. Squeeze and hold the start levers inside the upper handle. Press and release the start button to start the blades. Once the mower has been started, the self-propelled feature is engaged by pushing the upper handle forward. I hope this helps and we appreciate your interest in RYOBI! - Eve

I was looking for an electric mower due to the lighter weight and ease of use. I purchased this one specifically because of the reviews and the 6 hour life of the battery. My property is less than a third of an acre so one battery should’ve been sufficient. It hasn’t been from the beginning. While my kids do like the self-propel feature; with one battery it takes two days to mow my yard and it doesn’t do a great job. I just purchased this last year and am already looking to get rid of it because of the hassle.

I have a large, rolling front yard, which is mostly grass. I take keeping my yard neat very seriously...I have to, as I have one of those HOA's that takes it seriously for me. I have a gas powered California Trimmer reel type mower that I have used for almost 2 decades to cut my grass. I had serious doubts about Ryobi's claims of "gas like power", but in buying and using their 40v weed trimmer, I was encouraged enough to try their 20" self propelled electric mower. I was blown away. As I said...I have a large front yard. I also have a moderate river willow infestation in my yard (a super plant that grows a thick stock very quickly) and the Ryobi powers thru them like it does the grass. It takes two 4ah 40v batteries to complete the lawn (well...1.5) so I believe the new 6ah battery would do the whole yard. But what sells me even more on this machine is how fast it is. I pull it out, install the battery and start cutting. The grass catcher is effective and unlike most mid-range rotary mowers, it does not clog up. Even when the grass is slightly damp. If I had a complaint, Ryobi seems to have already addressed it: I bought one of the earlier units. You must extend the handle all way out in order to use the mower. When you do this, my mower has a thin wire harness that gets stretched and could break of you're not careful. I looked at the new units at Home Depot and noticed that they all have a much thicker harness and it is routed so as to make straining the harness less probable. I clamped my handle with a hose clamp to keep it from over extending. It was a minor fix and im really happy with my mower. I now own several Ryobi 40v units and they really do have "gas like power".

I originally reviewed this unit a couple weeks back and unfortunately, I was not impressed. If there was a way for me to edit that review I would. With that said, it has rained on and off for several days in the Midwest which caused a small forest in my grandmothers yard. I took the mower over to mow her thick grass. To my surprise, this mower knocked it out without much of a problem. There were a couple really high spots that it had some trouble getting through but it made it. The battery lasted throughout the cut. A couple things that made me want to edit the review: 1.Folding the lawn mower up and placing it in my trunk was quick and easy. Pull out the sides and fold down. I’m not sure if it gets quicker than that 2. The ability to quickly adjust the height when met with taller grass. It really is a one step process to lift/lower the deck. One handle for an even cut. 3. Battery lasted longer than I thought through thick grass. 4. Even though I didn’t need it, the extra battery storage was handy. There is a slot for a back up battery. What I still don’t like about this mower is the smart trek. I can say that I’m getting use to it and it is a lot better than I originally thought. Also, you have to make sure the discharge block is seated properly. If not or if you hit a bump just right, it will stop the mower.

Awesome lawn mower
Customer review from ryobitools.com logo
I purchased this mower last month. I researched and compared multiple mowers. I chose this mower for its features and the price. It is lightweight, easy to maneuver around trees and poles. It mulches the grass into very small pieces that don’t get tracked into the house. I like that I don’t have to bother with gas, or oil. The button start is a great feature. No more pulling to start it. The battery charges enough to mow my 1/2 acre and the switch the battery to the weed wacker and do all the trimming with enough charge left over. I highly recommend this mower. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

After my gas mower died I got this few days ago We had 3 nonstop raining days here in Michigan And the grass was wet! I couldn't believe this cordless mower did the job, It was very tall weedy grass too Until the battery killed my excitement just needed 5 more minutes of running time I think Ryobi should either sell it with the 7.5 ah or 2 batteries my yard is around 1/4 acre I tried to recharge the battery immediately after it stopped but you need to cool it down before it charges other than the battery it is a great mower. I wish it came with another battery which will make my experience complete

I purchased my 1st battery powered mower after using gas for years and to my surprise was blown away by the operation/results. I purchased two battiers to be on the safe side but was able to finish my lawn in 45 minutes with one battery. No more gas, no more breaking my arm with pulling the string to start (the push button on this was perfect and quick). This is the Tesla of Lawn Mowers; my neighbor even commented on how quite this mower is. Don't hesitate.... purchase this if you are in the market for a new mower

I found this on sale a few weeks ago at my local store in Louisiana for 279. I could only find the yellow one for that price and was in the market so I went with it. The only negative is the smart trek. I think they will eventually find a better way or do away with the idea. If i could have got the regular self propelled for same price I would have went that route. The way it folds up is awesome.

My first impression of this mower when I took it out of the box was "wow"! I mean, this thing is sharp! That's where my excitement ended. It was raining when it came, so the battery got a solid couple of days on the charger. After reading the manual I felt like I was good to go and cut my yard. It started no problem, but I didn't get 5' into my yard before the mower stopped. I double checked everything, collapsed and re-extended the handle to make sure it was fully extended, and made sure the height was good and started it again. Again it stopped, but wouldn't start. This went on for more than an hour. Any time I collapsed and re-extended the handle it started right up, but it only got a few feet before it cut off again. I was researching on line, when I found that older models have a safety button to make sure the handle is fully extended. This unit doesn't have a button, so I assume the mechanism is in the housing unit where you lock the handle in place. One video on you tube showed where he had to use hose clamps to keep his handle from slipping. That's when it dawned on me, that was probably the problem. The next time it stopped, I was able to pull the right side of the arm/handle back a solid inch. It had slid down, and I assume tripped the safety mechanism. After pulling the arm/handle back, it started right up. It took 4 hours of stopping and fighting with the handle every few feet to finish my yard. I will be returning this to the store. Hopefully a new one won't have the same problem.
