This is close to wanting to keep it except for a couple shortcomings. First reading other reviews many would have been addressed had you called Ryobi CS which I did when it intermittently stopped with plenty of battery life. Handle had to be absolutely all the way up when you lock it and problem solved. This has a mulching feature. It does NOT mulch. It does not have a mulching blade and all the mulching block does is create a blob of grass weighing down the unit as it fills every bit of empty space in the blade compartment. Most important and the reason I am returning it is the claim it can mow up to a half an acre on one charge. It does not come close to a quarter acre heck not even 1/8 an acre before it is dead. My back yard is 80X50 with a porch and shed making about 3600 SQ FT. On a full charge it did about 3/4 and I shut off the self propel to get more cutting or it would have not done 2/3 of that 3600 SQ FT. With tax an extra battery would be $200.00, sorry too much. It cut nicely and was decent in handling and noise but it needs 7,5-8AMPS to cut just a front or back yard for an average postage stamp lot. Too bad, I really liked this mower but to have to keep a gas mower to finish the back yard does not work for me

I have many of Ryobi power tools and love them. So when my gas mover dead, I decided to get their lawn mover. Charged the battery and me and my son took it out to cut and trim the yard. What would have taken 30 minutes before turned into three hours. We have a small hill in the front yard and the mover would stop every time we tried to mow it. We live in south Florida so it's really not a hill by any means. Also any time we hit a good bump it would stop. So I'm taking it back and will talk with my neighbor across the street to see what brand they have because they have no problems with their mower

don’t buy
2016 i had bought a ryobi mower and loved it with the exception of the 5ah battery not being enough to mowe 1/2 an acre. Come June 2020, I purchased this mower for fathersday. One of the two locks for the self-propel was broken. When the handle system is folded one of the grooves was grinding the aluminium. After the second use the self propel became stuck on high. I attempted to call custumer support to get a replacement but never got someone on the phone. I took it back to home depot. I want to inform everyone that I purchased this mower online from homedepot for $379.00 NEW. DONT pay more than that for this mower

(What's this)
This lawn mower is slick and easy to use nice you have it up and running. Know that the handle has to be fully extended to run, but the fact that it’s electric and has self propel are awesome features. It requires little-to-no maintenance as a result, and it has multiple settings for length of blade. The battery also lasts long enough to get a good cut, and it charges easily. Overall there’s really nothing negative to say, it’s been great for me. Much better than any gas mower I’ve had.

When my gas-powered self-propelled, mulching mower succumbed to "ethanol poisoning" (small engines and ethanol do not get along well), I decided to check out rechargeable electrics, given there would be no need for gas cans, oil changes, etc. And the technology for these has vastly improved. For about the same price as a higher end self-propelled, mulching gas mower, I bought this one instead. Entirely pleased with this mower! Battery charge life of about 35 minutes is fine, given it takes me only about 15 to do my lawn. The lithium-ion battery recharges in 4 hours or less. While I had to get used to controlling the self-propel speed, I did get the technique. After 5 mowings, I've found this mower is quieter than a comparable gas mower and does at least as good a job in mowing and mulching.

Battery operated is the way to go
I received my Ryobi 21 inch 40 volt lawn mower a week ago. Assembly was easy - read and follow the instructions. Going from a gas operated to battery operated lawn mower will take a little time. The self-propelled feature is different, but can be mastered - need to ensure lever is in correct position. The lawn mower is quiet - you hear the blade wind blowing. I have the Ryobi 40 volt 4.0 amp battery as a backup. The mulching piece or grass catcher and starter key has to be in place to start and operate the mower. Overall i really like the mower. I have to change my ways becuase the battery-operated lawn mower is different. I highly recommend this mower.

Everything about the mower is great but my wife just pointed out that the handlebar is way too high for shorter people. It's perfect for those 6 feet tall but at just over 5 feet it is way too high for her and she feels a redesign should take place. For the record it has been lowered as far as it can go. Maybe Gene Simmons will loan her his boots for cutting the lawn.

The lawn mower is good but I don't think it's great and I'm on the fence about whether I could recommend. PROS: -single height adjustment lever - simply fabulous to use and so easy to adjust the cutting height -very nimble: The mower is just so easy to turn and maneuver. It turns so easily and with no effort whatsoever. It's almost as if the mower is weightless when you turn. Turning was something of a chore before but not w/this mower. CONS: -I'd say I can mow a lawn for about 20 to 25 minutes MAX before the battery is fully deleted. I live on about a 1/4 of a acre and I can only mow the front or back of the house. I could not get through both sides -Takes a LONG time to charge the battery. This is not the kind of battery that will charge in 45 minutes so that you can edge the lawn while charging the battery and then finish the other side. It takes hours (which is fine if you're charging overnight) but you can't charge in between jobs in the same day. You need two batteries to fully complete a 1/4 acre lot -I'm petite - about 5'2" - and I find the handle bar top, when fully extended (and it has to be to get the mower to start - it's not adjustable) hits the middle of my chest. So in terms of fit and comfort, this would be great for a taller person but for a more petite person having the handlebar hit you so high is not as comfortable. It's not terrible but not optimal for us vertically challenged individuals. -COMPLETE pain to store: As mentioned the handle take up a lot of horizontal real estate. It's about a 1/3rd longer than my other lawn mowers. If you have a garage and storage isn't an issue then it's fine but I store mine in the shed and these really long, thick handlebars make it difficult to store -Not so easy to fold handlebars: The photos showing the handlebars neatly tucked in w/the lawnmower being stowed vertically look great and this is all definitely possible. You don't need to be a rocket scientist but to fold up the handlebars is not so intuitive and seems more onerous than it has to be. You have to unfold two latches at the side, press another two clips, tuck in the top handlebar, then jiggle this lever at the front to release the safety latch, fold the way too long handlebars over the body.....it just feels over engineered and I find it a pain EVERY SINGLE TIME. If only it could be a bit more effortless like the the single height adjustment blade adjustment. Now that lever and the ease of moving through the height settings is a thing of beauty and intelligent design. OBSERVATIONS -Not quiet (but no louder than a gas mower): I keep reading reviews saying how quiet electric lawn mowers are. It's just a fraction less loud than my other gas lawn mower (I had a Toro Recycler). I was hoping to mow early in the morning or late in the evening but it won't be happening unless I hope to make enemies of my neighbors -Quick start: It starts very quickly. There's a 2 second pause when you first press the blade lever -I miss the function where the lawn mower blade stops but the lawn mower is still on so you can easily start mowing again: This is a little bit like the Dyson cordless vacuum (which I love). Once you stop pressing the lever, the mower comes to a dead stop. Now that seems fine in concept but sometimes you just want to pause the mower while tossing a twig or something in your way. Once the mower comes to a stop, you have to re-engage the mower, press that blade button and this all takes 5 seconds or so. It doesn't sound too bad and once again it isn't but when you factor in how many times you stop to pick up that miscellaneous item and then have to restart the mower, you'll see how inconvenient it is. The best example I can give is it would be equivalent to driving a car and your car's engine turning off EVERY time you stop at a traffic light. You would have to press a button to re-engage the motor/or turn the key and then move the gear back to drive and then press the accelerator. -Light is ok: I do like to mow at dusk but the light didn't much of a difference. I feel very far away from the front of the mowing path so perhaps that's why (once again due to the somewhat excessive length of the handle). -Grass catcher bag a bit too large to easily fit into the paper grass clipping bags: I do use those paper bags to deposit the clippings. The other lawn mower bags fit very easily and neatly inside. This bag has the almost exact same dimensions as the paper bag so you have to be REALLY careful when trying to deposit the clippings inside. I've never made such a mess of trying to get the clippings in the bag and most of it ends up outside the bag until you get the paper bag 1/3rd to 1/2 full. While I can see the benefits of a larger bag, shaving a few inches would be preferable. Also I would think the mower carrying the extra weight would deplete the battery even faster. -Cutting ability: I thought my gas lawn mower cut the lawn a bit cleaner. There were more stray pieces of grass (but not many). I think it's because I like to exercise while mowing the lawn so I walk at a very fast pace/almost a slow jog. My gas lawn mower had no issues but this one seemed to balk when I tried to move too quickly and I could see this in the results when I pushed the mower too quickly over a patch of grass. I don't think this will be an issue for many but if you like to move very quickly as well you'll feel the hesitation from the mower and deceleration of power. In summary, I am NEVER going back to a gas lawn mower but I don't think this is the right model for me. I was on the fence when I first began writing this review and now I think I for sure that this is not working for me. The battery just doesn't cut it for an avg, 1/3rd of an acre lawn, the lawnmower itself is erogonomically designed for a taller person w/no adjustability and there are a few annoying qualities I can't get past. Hope this review helps. I think Home Depot and Ryobi are both great companies. I have a lot of Ryobi's power tools including their cordless nailer and I really like them all and the price point is stellar but this one feels like a bit of a miss. Not terrible but just didn't deliver what I needed.

Very Powerful and Built Like a Tank This is my 3rd Ryobi Cordless mower. Comparing to my previous mowers, this one is an absolute keeper. I had my share of cordless mowers prior to settling for Ryobi mowers, such as EGO, Dewalt. Ryobi is very user friendly with an excellent build quality. At the beginning, the Smart-Trek feature was a little awkward for me and my wife. However, as you adapt your walking and navigating the mower, it becomes second nature you to easily mow without using too much push, just focus on area you are mowing. We both love it and calling dibs to mow the yard. :-) The metal deck and 21” blade size makes this mower very solid, comparing to other comparable mowers. This mower is a good-looking mower and a great conversation piece with neighbors as well. I already converted 2 of my neighbors to Ryobi mowers after letting them take mine for a test drive. I am hoping this mower will last many more years to come.

Mower is ready to use straight out of the box, Flip up handles, set desired cutting height, insert a battery, slip grass clippings bag on its frame and set in slots on mower...I’ve used my new 21in. 40v mower 5 times now since it was delivered LOVE IT! It’s so easy to use and so quiet compared to old gas mower, I have multiple Ryobi 40v yard tools, so while I charged 6.0 battery that came with mower I just popped in a 3.0 battery from Ryobi blower and yeah! It had enough power to mow all of my front lawn and about 1/2 of backyard lawn before needing to be charged. Now with 6.0 battery I can cut both lawns twice before needing to recharge. Really like how easy it is to fold and store mower, it only takes up about 1/3 of the space old gas mower did in garage AWESOME TOOL
