Do you have to remove battery to charge

Asked by Barbara September 16, 2020
3
Answers

Just to be clear, the battery pack is composed of four 12 volt, 75 Ahr. batteries connected in series to form a 48 volt, 75 Ahr. pack. The pack is on a slide out tray for servicing, should it be needed. The pack weighs in excess of 200 pounds, so it’s not something you would normally be removing. Hence, charging is done by simply plugging the charger into the mower.

Do you remove battery to charge

Asked by Barbara September 16, 2020
2
Answers

No, the mower plugs into a wall outlet to charge the batteries.

Is anyone else having problems with the auto-protect shutoff for voltage or sudden voltage drops?

Asked by Stretch61 September 15, 2020
6
Answers

Don’t forget that the electronics in the mower will limit the depth of discharge to 30%, which should give 1,500 - 1,700 charge cycles. When the system shuts the blades off, you are almost at the 30% DOD, which Ryobi says Is about 36/volts remaining on the pack. At 36 volts the system shuts everything down. The ten bars of the BLM represent the voltage span from 51 - 52 volts down to the 36 volt cutoff. My pack will do a .2 volt bounce after mowing if I don’t plug it into the charge immediately. When the battery failed in my mower, run time gradually got less and less (more and more bars out for the same mow time). Eventually, the pack voltage dropped so low (below 36 volts) the charger would not even charge the pack. The batteries would take a charge to 13.2 volts each, but as soon as any load was placed on the system, the pack voltage would fall and the main relay would not engage.

I purchased my four Leoch batteries from Home Depot last June, 2019, thinking my riding mower batteries were rapidly failing. I was premature, and still have not replaced them. Keeping your original batteries fully charged and limit the time usage of your mower, you may find that your original batteries still have some life to offer, until replacement becomes essential. The worldwide pandemic is likely contributing to the apparent nonavailability of the batteries.

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 !

I love my Ryobi mower! It also serves me as a golf cart, garden cart, neighborhood errand runner. I can use my grass catcher, I can haul water, brush, tools in my wagon or lawn trailer hooked to my Ryobi. I carry produce to neighbors and tools to help neighbors with projects. It is a great help in tending the backyard golf course I have created. It cuts through very high grass easily and cuts high enough and low enough to meet all of my cutting needs.It has plenty of battery life to cut my 1 acre and my neighbor's 1 acre also with plenty of battery life left. And I can do it all QUIETLY except when I want to mow. I also get the pleasure of not polluting the air with a noisy gas burning engine. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Customer review from logo
I like this Lawn mower, for the price it's an excellent environmentally friendly option to your lawn care here are some pro's and cons i found as a owner who's had this for several months now. Pros: 1. Doesn't need any maintenance just charge and go. 2. Very Quiet while mowing and runing. 3. Long Run time. good enough for 1 acres at least. 4. Excellent response and handling. Cons: 1. Turning radius is terrible. 2. Labels and on the machine that are fastened on plastic are already peeling off after just 3 months of use. 3. Very Bumpy ride, If you have a bad back you need to add a memory foam cushion. 4. No option for the side Shute has no option to remove or keep it on the up position when using the mulching function. 5. Extreme Over packaging. The steel platform that it came with is very difficult to dispose of. 6. Traction is poor on these wheels, specially when going a slight incline with recently rained on grass. You really need to take it slow when grass is wet and you have any slop with a 3/12 pitch. 7. Quite over priced for a Led acid battery system.

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.

so far I like it.
So far it’s been great. I work nights and I wanted something that I could do my grass cutting when I get off in the morning without disturbing the neighbors and I think this will do just fine, very Quiet.So far the batteries are great but time will tell. It was 10 days late on delivery though.
