      A:  The conversion process is somewhat complex and rather expensive. It can cost up to $1,700 (2x the cost of the SLA/AGM batteries) & requires a different charger also. The SLA/AGM batteries are rated for 1,500-1,700 charges.

        Q:I only plan on mulching. How do you remove the side discharge apparatus?
        by|Feb 6, 2023

        Answer This Question

        A:  Hello, Matt - Thank you for your question. The mower is configured for side discharge when shipped. If mulching is desired: Lift the side discharge chute. Place the mulch cover on the tab on the mower housing. Connect the mulch cover latches to the two side mounting points on the mower deck housing. Release the side discharge chute. I hope this helps! Additionally, if you need further support, then a RYOBI Customer Experience Professional is here for you, Monday - Friday from 9 am to 6 pm (EST) when you call or text us at 1.800.525.2579 or through email or live chat when you visit us at https://www.ryobitools.com/support/contact.

          A:  Ryobi doesn't want you to remove the side discharge chute. You can remove it by prying off the drive nut that holds the chute & spring on, thus pretty much ruining it. I ordered the mounting bracket and replaced the entire chute for mulching.

            Q:Does this mower need a separate kit to mulch or does it come ready to mulch

            Answer This Question

            A:  Comes with a mulching cover

            by|Feb 6, 2023

              A:  It comes with a snap on mulch door/plug and the supplied blades are used for mulch mowing. Mine mulches better than my neighbor's Toro TimeCutter.

              by|Feb 6, 2023

                A:  Hello, Michael - Thank you for your question. The mulching cover has to be installed to use the mower for mulching. I hope this helps!

                  So far so good. I'm very excited to have this.
                  Not sure why they only allow 500 characters for a review-why?-can't say much then! Other than having an initial issue with one of the blades hitting a metal piece underneath causing a horrific sound (luckily I could unscrew 3 bolts and remove it) I'm happy with my purchase. I have just under an acre, and mowed it all with only using a small amount of battery. It really zips around. Also I did the quick fix of putting several pieces of duct tape over the backup alarm so it's very quiet now.

                    Good until it isn't
                    Loved the mower when new. Followed directions as to always be charging, 1st season could mow my half acre no problem, now just over 2 years and all 4 of my batteries test bad. Barely get 20 to 30 minutes before blades shut off. Always on the charger when not in use. Cannot recommend due to having to spend 700+ dollars every other year on batteries.

                      Great Investment
                      I purchased this mower because I cannot be around gas powered equipment. It's too loud and I lose my balance. That being said, I am well pleased with this mower. It has handled great and I have had no troubles cutting over 2 acres. I received the mower and put is together with no problem.

                      If you have the cash it is a great mower
                      Let me start by saying I love it. I held off writing a review untill used a few times. Like others have said it does ride a little rough. It sets up higher than a regular lawn tractor because you are setting on top of the batteries. I use it with the mulch blades and it works great. The bagger works good. Cuts even. I only have a 1/3 acre and it shows a little above half charge when finished. Maybe the mulch blades use more battery power?? Any way if you have the cash it is a great mower .

                      Mower came with cheaper seat not the one shown
                      The mower came with a cheaper seat not the one shown in the online pics. When I contacted Home Depot they transferred me to Ryobi customer service. I was told that seat was no longer available and had no alternative but to return the entire mower. I feel that it was misrepresented. The parking brake is oddly placed close to the foot and is rather difficult to engage. The mower itself runs well and provides an even cut.

                        438 hours, 4.5 years, still going strong
                        I store this mower outside under my deck in NJ. During winter and all. Always plugged in. Still on original batteries. Battery meter is off when it's under 50 degrees outside. But original batteries and still mows my 1 acre with 1/4 charge left when done. Thick grass as well causes blades to slow down, but still very nice cut. This mower was worth every penny when I bought it. People shouldn't not pick use common sense. Your battery meter will not be accurate when it is not ideal temperature.

                          My 5th season
                          This is my 5th season of using it, and I still love it. This year, I had a battery issue after the winter, but I managed to bring the batteries back by charging them individually. The batteries are expensive to replace, but so far OK.

                            Love the mower, beware of delivery and warranty
                            I bought this model last year and it took a month for Home Depot to ship it. I have really enjoyed the mower, but the flange that holds one of the deck's wheels bent (progressive) with regular use. It does not have a brace to make it stiff enough. I contacted Ryobi to get a replacement deck under their warranty. They called this design flaw "wear and tear" and would not honor the warranty. See image. (Forgive the grass as I had just been mowing.)

                              Nice mower, Stupid shipping protocol.
                              If you order a mower to be delivered, read every word of the delivery carefully. It is difficult for an exhausted cancer patient who has chemo brain. NO KUDOS for for leaving it in an easily to steal area. I had to disguise the mower as a brush pile and block it with my jeep. The shipping company and Home Depot need to seriously revise the shipping protocol. “Hey if you forget to check, ‘leave in a safe area’ then we we will have it delivered stupid” Just a few more feet ok. Sigh…
