In the year 2017, it is insulting that ryobi chose to use lead acid batteries instead of long lasting, safe, lithium phosphates(lifepo4).( 3 year life vs 10+ years.) I would have paid $800 more for lithium. Heck i even used lithium on my last ebike, why cant $ryobi$?
Asked by: Justin
My RM480e is nearing two years of use with two winter storage seasons. Comparing the total cost of operation for this mower against my neighbor’s 42” Toro Timecutter, the difference would pay for a total battery replacement for the RM480e In two years. The battery maker (Leoch) states that these batteries should provide 1,500 - 1,700 charge cycles due to the way the mowers electronics limit the routine depth of discharge to about 30%. My mower is approaching 100 charge cycles after nearly two years of ownership. This mower is costing me $0.20 per hour to operate.

I've been using this mower for the entire summer and love it. However I have one growing concern as I prepare to put it away until the Spring: the battery power seems to be declining. When I first bought it and began to use it the batteries would indeed last the 2.5 hours for which they're advertised. Over the following months leading to now (November), the run time has slowly decreased. As I write this, I only receive about 1.5 hours of run time. I clean the mower deck before each use. Hopefully there is a simple solution to this. Please advise.
Asked by: Gyrene
One important point to note regarding the electronics in the Ryobi electric riders. The voltage controller on board and the charger limit the pack discharge down to 36 volts. That means you can’t discharge the battery pack more than 30%, as the system simply shuts down when the pack voltage drops below 36 volts. According to the battery manufacturer (Leoch) this form of management should deliver 1,500 to 1,700 charge cycles for the SLA/AGM batteries. How many times a year do you mow? My RM480e just passed 100 charge cycles ( including two winters of storage cycles) and still uses only about 3% of the available 15 volt charge during over an hour of mowing. The cost of operation savings over an ICE rider will pay for new batteries in two years of use.

Can you attach a snow plow ?

Asked by: Mitscientist
I understand your traction issue. My neighbor has voiced a traction issue with his RM480ex when the pavement is icy. I suggested adding some weight at the rear. I suggested using a tailgate like mine with a hundred pounds of weights on it. Another neighbor just bought a Craftsman ICE front engine rider with a snow blade on it. We’ll see hoe well it does on the next snowfall.

With nothing to synchronize the blades (separate motors) how do they overlap without hitting? Do they not overlap? If so, how does it not leave a seem of uncut grass down the middle of each pass?
Asked by: John
I haven’t looked but I assume they are staggered fore/aft (one blade an inch or so farther forward than the other) to allow the needed overlap. It’s just geometry : )...
