Can other chargers be used on these batteries? My charger died, Ryobi warranty replacement is on backorder.

Asked by IWantedToLikeIt October 21, 2020

Answers

OP: Just curious. How many hours on the mower? Any idea how many charge cycles are on the system? What indicator light is the failed charger showing, I.e. color and number? I ask because my charger was initially incorrectly diagnosed as failed and replaced with the incorrect p/n. Yes, there are different chargers for these mowers based on the mower manufacturer number. We subsequently found out I had one of the batteries going bad, fortunately under warranty.

How do the 75 and 100Ah mowers differ? Is it mower speed, blade speed, operating time?

Answers

Runtime is the only difference. I thought I'd need the 100ah but got the 75ah and it has been more than enough to mow my 1.5 acre lot most sessions. May not make it fully with tall grass in spring but most of the time has plenty of runtime.

The OP’s comment on Delta Q chargers being junk gave me pause, as I had heard nothing negative about them till then and I own one. The charger used for the Ryobi RM480 mowers is a Delta Q SC-48 charger. This design has been around since 2014, and was designed in partnership with EZGo. So the design was three years old when Ryobi started using it, and it’s now six years old. It is used by EZGo, Club Car, and other golf cart makers and also used in golf course cart sheds. It is a sealed design and can be serviced by authorized EZGo service centers. I spent a couple of days searching the internet for reviews of this charger and found none. I also found no real complaints for this charger on cart forums. Every forum question I found relative to this charger resulted in bad batteries or improper charger setup for the particular cart, but no charger failures. The Ryobi supplied charger for the Ryobi mowers is already set up for the application (i.e. Leoch LPC12 batteries). In fact, a search of the thousands of HD Q&A answers for the Ryobi mowers turned up only one question concerning replacing the Ryobi charger, and that one did not state a charger failure. Since the mower in question was less than three years old, the charger was still under warranty. The only non-battery SC-48 issue I was able to find anywhere concerned the operating temperature. I have questioned Ryobi about this and was told that a 120 degree F surface temperature is normal and this was corroborated by another independent technical source. The charger monitors the Leoch LPC12 type battery temperature in the RM480s while charging to prevent damage to the battery pack. I have my charger mounted vertically on a wall with the cooling fins vertical and with a 1/2” air space behind the charger to enhance air flow. It’s been working flawlessly for over two years, including being continually plugged in all winter long . The only time the charger isn’t plugged in is when the mower is being used.

I was a riding mower virgin so keep that in mind. Assembly of the unit was easy and without issue. Yesterday was my first time actually using a riding mower so I don’t have anything to compare it to. My lawn is challenging since I live on a hill. This mower did an awesome job on my lawn, I just had to go slow due to my terrain. Turning circle is great. Cut was nice and even. I have 1.76 acres of land. I think the issue people have initially with the battery is with somewhat wet grass collecting there. The mower began to sound different so I stopped and the deck had lots of wet grass stuck to it. It took 5 minutes to clear and I was back in the saddle. Going down hill the mower felt sturdy when I let off of the gas. Finally make sure you clean the deck after use. It seems like a good mower, didn’t give it 5 stars because only time will tell.

Headline first. I tow my 5,000 boat/trailer with the Ryobi. I know, probably not recommended. I have a tight garage and driveway so I attached a bumper trailer hitch on the front and had to build a trailer dolly for the rear. The Ryobu trailer attachment can not support the 1,000 tongue weight of the boat trailer... what a surprise... so I had to build a dolly to distribute the weight of the tongue. Anyways, the Ryobi pushed the boat out of the garage and pulls the boat into the garage.. Awesome ! It's a 21ft SCOUT. My only issue is cutting high, thick grass. the right mower blade cuts off so now I cut twice taking about 1/2" at a time if I let the grass mow too long. Otherwise, awesome tractor !

Sticker shock gives way to overall good experience
Customer review from homedepot.ca logo
Overall very happy with the riding lawn mower after the first two months. Many people have likened it to a Mario Kart vehicle so you'll definitely gets looks using it. We have three acres and this model can cut it all on a single charge. I typically do it in two stages just because of the time involved but I've found hat I don't have to charge it in between if I don't want to. This model has the largest battery and cutting swath of the three Ryobi electric models but it is smaller than many gas mowers costing less. However, the savings on fuel and maintenance will hopefully add up over time. Charging is easy and relatively quick. Without the biades engaged it really scoots along quit quickly but the cutting speed may be slower than gas mowers in this price range. The blades can struggle in taller grass so you need to know its limits and make sure you keep to a schedule that keeps the grass below a height that can make it harder to cut. The only downsides so far (besides the sticker shock) are the harsh ride on the smaller tires and the number of squeaks and rattles it exhibits. On a gas mower you probably wouldn't hear the squeaks over the roar of the engine but I just hope it holds up over the years. The rough ride can be annoying on the back of our property where the grass is sparser and the ground hard and a bit bumpy. It's a pleasure on a nicely manicured lawn but a bit torturous if you have more of an unmanicured meadow or field. Noise levels are very low compared to my neighbour's gas-powered lawn tractors and there is no need for ear protection for me. It just sounds like a large drone when the blades are running and a small whine of the electric motors when the blades are off. The reverse cutting function and cruise control are both nice features I use frequently and are good to have. The cup holder is only good for beverages that are completely sealed or they will spill everywhere with the vibrations and shaking. For the same reason I have yet to use the phone holder or USB port. I bought a dump cart to hook up to the tractor and it accommodates that well also. The cart car carry up to 500 pounds but I don't know how well the tractor would tow that much. I'm just using it for brush cutting and garbage.

RM480e Two Year Review
Features :
5
Quality :

Value :

I have had my RM480e for two full years now and it has been everything it was advertised and more. I have mowed lawns with it, hauled dirt in a trailer, and yard waste in a trashcan attached to a home built tailgate. It is always ready to use, quiet in operation, and ridiculously inexpensive to operate. Some numbers will tell the story. 1. 108 charge cycles over two years costing $15.44 total. 2. The mower costs less than $0.21 per hour to run based on our $0.13 per kilowatt hour cost. Gasoline here has averaged over $2.00 per gallon since I purchased this mower. My neighbor’s V-twin mowers use about a gallon per hour. 3. The only maintenance costs have been a second set of blades (now $28.97) so I can always have a sharp set ready if and when needed. The blades' edges last all year and still cut fine at the end of the season. 4. Based on my average mowing time of 44 minutes, the system recharges the batteries in about 4 hours and costs less than $0.16. I did have two issues with the mower. One of the batteries failed after eleven months of use and Ryobi replaced the battery under warranty. The spring on the charging port cover broke and Ryobi replaced it under warranty also. I made a fold up tailgate that bolts to the towing plate so I can haul things as I don’t have storage room for a trailer or cart. The tailgate also includes a tow bar extension so I don’t have to remove the tailgate to tow something. I also added an onboard volt meter so I can see how much the mower is using with each use. I spent $30 on a recording watt/amp./volt meter to track each charge cycle cost. The mower is a joy to operate and it cut my mowing time in half from the walk behind I had before. It cuts so close to things that I only have to do very little string trimming. Comparing the operation costs of the RM480e to my neighbors' various ICE riding mowers/tractors, the Ryobi electric costs so little to operate that after two years of ownership, the savings have paid for a new set of batteries in two years. The battery manufacturer states these batteries should deliver 1,500 to 1,700 charge cycles based on the way the Ryobi electronics manage the batteries. After two years of ownership, this mower has done 108 charges. Winter storage costs less than one dollar for the entire seven months, so keeping the mower connected to the charger when not in use is not a cost factor.

I have had this mower for almost a year and have enjoyed it. However, there are some issues where Ryobi can improve the safety and functionality. Safety first; the mover moves too fast in reverse. My car does move that fast. The petal is too sensitive, and it causes violent and strong jerks as you are inclined to release the petal when the mower surges backward. It is definitely possible for one to be thrown off the mower or suffer a back or neck injury. I don't know if this can be fixed in software. Next, the collection bag frame needs some form of quickly release allowing it to swing out of the way if it hits that immovable obstacle (insert mailbox support here). I motored past my mailbox not realizing that the mailbox support arm extended out.the back of the post. The bag support struck the arm swinging the frame out of the way bending several heavy steel components of the frame and mower. The impact actually bounced the rear of the mower away from the mailbox. The mower height adjustment handle can be accidentally released by bushes and by the operator getting on and off. The handle fits into a slightly angled slot.and a slight sideways force will knock it out. Gravity will drop the mover deck, and you'll scalp your lawn. A simple redesign to the notch to include a stop would help. Also reversing the handle or making it a knob would prevent the accidental leg release. Many people have complained about the batteries. I have noticed that when you first turn on the switch you do not get a true battery level reading. It only shows 50% power, but given a moment and mine will show full power. As I said, my mower is a year old; and it has 18.2 hours on the meter. It has experienced one winter in NW Florida. Once I forgot to plug it in after mowing, but I was able to mow the entire lawn the next time; total time 100 minutes. Overall I am pleased with the mower, and hope that Ryobi will address the first two comments.

Great electric mower
Customer review from homedepot.ca logo
This mower does a great job. Comes with a cup holder which is nice. Very happy with the cruise control feature. Comfortable seat as well. If you have two acres or less of grass to cut it’ll handle it no problem on a single charge Some cons: louder than I thought it would be but not intrusive. Grass has to be really short before you can use the mulcher insert, otherwise it stalls. Arrived from the factory with a completely flat front tire that had a slow leak due to a manufacturing defect. Because there is no local Home Depot in my town I took the wheel to a local tire shop and they were able to properly seal it. All in all I would recommend this mower?
