Answers

Hello Zeus, the RYOBI 30 in. 50 Ah Battery Electric Rear Engine Riding Mower RY48130 does not have a riding weight limit. The tow rate is not listed as lbs. as you should only tow driving more than 5 mph using standard yard equipment. If you need additional information on towing, please contact RYOBI Customer Support team so that one of our experienced technicians can assist you. We can be reached at 1-800-860-4050. Thanks for reaching out to us! - Eve Thanks for asking!

Can this handle a tow behind aerator with approx 100lbs of weight?

Asked by Thinner September 30, 2020

Answers

This may a bit late, but my neighbor with the RM480ex has a 48” wide plug aerator weighted with 4 concrete blocks totaling over 200 pounds. He just ran the rig over his lawn and stated the amperage draw was the same or less than when we were towing dump carts loaded with about 200 pounds of dirt. This battery load was way less than the draw when mowing, so I would think the RM300e should be able to handle your aerator.

My apologies about lubricating the axle tube. I was thinking of the RM480 front axle which is different than this mower. I hope This clears up my previous answer.

excellent machine
Customer review from ryobitools.com logo
I took delivery of my new mower about one month ago. My lawn needs mowing several times a week during the summer month. I also purchased the bagging attachment. I have now mowed 8 times and my lawn has never looked so good. The cutting speed has produced a perfect cut. I have about a quarter acre of lawn. It used to take an hour with my walk behind mower. I now can finish in less than 30 mins and clear of clippings. The mower is quiet and fast. I have several sloping areas and the mower climbs them with no problem. Excellent quality machine. I am very pleased with the power and performance. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

I got 4 cuttings out of my original charge. A total of 3 hrs. I have St. Augustine grass mixed with torpedo grass Very thick. The mower handled it easily. Seat is comfortable. The reverse cutting is a plus. Very satisfied.

Exceeded my expectation!
Customer review from ryobitools.com logo
I can't say enough great things about this mower. My yard is about 1 acre and I get a solid 2 mows out of 1 charge. It is VERY quiet which was a huge selling point for us. It beeps when going in reverse which is also a really nice safety feature. I highly recommend this to anyone who is looking for an efficient, low maintenance mower.

Great. So far so good. Only mowed a couple of times but it was a breeeze.... No time flat for the acre. With plenty of battery life left to go. Looks like a golf course. Let's see how it holds up and when it might need servicing how difficult that will be. But as of now it's great. I have several other Ryobi tools and the quality is excellent. They are almost indestructible. Hold up very well and do a good job. So in researching electric mowers I looked at a number of brands but when I saw Ryobi I had to go with it. Just be a little careful on sharp turning though. The steering seems to lock up if moving beyond a crawl when trying to take a sharp turn. It pulls my garden utility cart very easily. In general it is just built so nicely. Very clean design and compact. The easily removable deck for cleaning and maintenance is fantastic. No piles and clumps of grass clippings. Where did they go? Back into the grass to nourish the roots obviously. Great investment. Thank you. (My old gas mower left piles and piles of clippings everywhere and was a nightmare to service. I used to think whoever designed that old gas mower should have lost their job since they obviously never used one themselves.)

Only used it twice. I have a small lawn and it is working great so far. Haven't seen it drop down below 9 bars on the energy meter, even after mowing for an hour. I have a slope in the back that is way more than the recommended 15 degrees (closer to 40) but it goes up and down just fine. It feels a little shaky going up the slope when I get near the top, but it seems to handle it okay. I would never mow across the slope with it. I'm not sure how to handle our Wisconsin winters, trying to keep the batteries charged and not freezing? I may have to remove them and charge them it the basement. Manual says to leave it plugged in all the time when not using it. Is this really necessary when you don't have a huge lawn. Couldn't I just charge it until the green light is solid and then unplug it? I would buy it again. Home Depot's website was great to work with and delivery was prompt and professional.

WILL NEVER GO BACK TO GAS EVER AGAIN! I EVEN DRIVE AN ELECTRIC CAR AS WELL.
If you are in the market for a riding lawn mower, invest the couple extra dollars into this Ryobi electric ride on lawn mower. I got the brand new for 2020 season RM380 50 amp hour 30" cut electric riding lawn mower. I have had it for about 1 month now and did 3 cuts so far with it each cut was a little over 1 hour long and I mowed a little over 1 acre of land. The most impressive part is that, after each mow it only used up 1 little bar of energy, so the battery in this mower actually lasts much longer than what it is advertised which is a great thing! This model being a little smaller has less parts to install, took me less than 1 hour to uncrate it and assemble it. The uncrating of it actually is the most time consuming part if you don't have the right tools. Basically all you are installing is the seat and the steering wheel and connecting the battery plug and connecting the seat safety switch plug and you are then ready to go. Our mower also came to us fully charged which was nice. With this new mower instead of having a switch to select what drive gear you want, there are foot pedals instead, there is a brake pedal on the left side, an accelerator pedal on the right side, the more you press on the pedal the faster it will go, basically like an automatic transmission, and right in front of the accelerator pedal mounted on the floor is a reverse pedal, once you let go of the accelerator pedal the mower will come to a complete stop without even pressing on the brake, and you can just press on the reverse pedal to go into reverse, there is a backup beeper, sounds like a tractor trailer backing up, it is quite funny. The only noise you hear is the 2 blades spinning if you had to compare it to another familiar sound, the spinning blades sound like a running box fan. No ear plugs necessary with this mower, you can have a conversation with someone while mowing with the blades on. The mower also has an excellent turning radius, it is not technically a zero turn, but it is pretty darn close, this mower can make a pretty tight circle in a narrow space, I was pretty impressed. You also have the function to mow in reverse, there is no cruise control in this model, there is also no usb port or storage cradle to hold your phone while mowing. So I just keep my phone inside my pocket and really don't need the usb charger, and for me not having the cruise control feature is not a big deal either. The dual LED headlights on this mower are so bright, they can actually pass for car headlights coming down the road at night. If you have a power outage and you need to some light to see something outside or inside your garage, just turn on the lawn mower lights. This mower also is narrow enough that if you have a garage, you are able to park the mower in the garage and still be able to park your car inside the garage as well. The charge port is mounted in the back of the mower behind the seat, the seat has a little drain hole in the bottom so that water doesn't collect on the seat, which is a nice little touch, the seat does adjust by the press of a handle you can slide it easily forward and back to adjust for your height. The mower also has a warning chime if you get up off the mower and you leave the key on. The mower is also very easy to clean, I just use my ryobi leaf blower to blow off any dust and grass clippings from it. Each blade is powered by its own electric motor, and the wheels are powered by a single electric motor, so 3 electric motors in all powering the entire unit. The deck is very simple and easy to take off, just remove a total of 4 hitch pins, 2 on each side and disconnect a power cable and the deck slides right out. There is no belts, no gas, no oil, no filters, no engine noise, no fumes, hardly any maintenance compared to a gas powered mower. After you use the mower, you clean it off, park it inside your garage or shed and you plug it in to charge, and you leave it plugged in until you are ready to use it again. The charging brick it comes with is wall mountable, it is fairly large in size and heavy. The mower itself can be lifted by hand with 2 or more people if need be if you needed to move it by hand, it definitely does feel a bit heavier than your average gas mower, I assume because of the added weight of the batteries under the seat. The mower claims to go up to 5 mph in forward gear and 3 mph in reverse gear, there are multiple cutting heights and I must say this mower cuts my lawn much nicer than any gas mower I ever used, my lawn has never looked this good in 20 years! I am so happy with this mower and so happy so far with the Ryobi brand, definitely worth the money. I switched all of my power tools and lawn and garden equipment from Craftsman to Ryobi and so far so good. My only concern is to see how long the batteries last, I am estimating a good 8-10 years before having to replace the batteries in the mower, and from what I hear there are 4-6 batteries inside that run anywhere from 120-150.00 each. Just something to think about for the future with electric mowers and battery powered equipment is the life and cost of replacing batteries. The one nice thing about this mower is that even if you don't know anything about fixing or repairing mowers, this is the kind of mower in which you can work on it and replace stuff yourself without needing to take it somewhere to service. You can easily change the blades yourself, and getting to the battery compartment to change out the batteries is as simple as just removing a few screws and popping off the battery cover. One negative so far is that the lighted control panel gauge that shows your how many hours are on your mower and how much battery life is left on the mower is not really visible outside in the sun, you have to use your hand to create a shadow over the gauge so that you can see it, other than that one minor gripe everything else is great. Also the tires on this mower are definitely much smaller in size compared to the tires on your average gas riding lawn mower.

Don't let the compact design fool you, this lawn mower has a lot of power and uses very little battery! No problem going up our hill and though not zero turn, it has a very good maneuverability. It shifts from forward to reverse mow without having to take your hands off the wheel. We were able to fit it in our garage with both of our cars in the garage too (see picture). The ride is also very smooth.
