Totally a Beast!
No more gasoline! A lot less noise ! This lawn tractor is a beast! Plenty of battery life for my almost one acre lawn! I use around 1/2 a charge on the battery!

This mower is perfect for my needs. It arrived on time and was placed in my garage. I assembled it in about an hour. It is super easy to operate and it cuts my acre of grass VERY well.

    Go electric today with this mower
    Great mower. Got sick and tired of corn for gas, tune ups, and the price of non-e fuel. This baby has power to spare, easy to ride, and does a great job. Very happy

    New lawn mowing experience
    Used machine 4 times and starting to like it and getting the hold of it. Pleased that battery life is plenty for my lawn. I live in a cold climate zone and wonder if I need to keep the machine plugged in over the winter sitting in my garage, which will see temperatures below freezing for an extended time here in Minnesota. Any recommendations?

    Bad batteries, no help from Ryobi or Home Depot
    I was super excited to get this mower at the end of 2019 and realized something was wrong early in 2020 when I could mow for about a half hour at best. No worries I thought, I'll have Ryobi take care of it since it's under warranty. Their support had me return it to Home Depot (not as easy said as done since I don't have a truck or trailer). It was gone for about 2 months so I had to pay to have my yard mowed in that time. I left it charging all winter and got a nasty surprise when I went to mow for the first time after getting it back. The runtime is even shorter!! Either they didn't do anything, or they actually made the batteries worse and then put them back in! Calls to Ryobi tell me I need to contact Home Depot to see what's been done so that I can know if it will be fixed under warranty. Home Depot literally can't tell me what was done, they can only tell me they shipped it off-site. Neither really seems to give a care that they're selling such an awful product. This has been among the worst consumer experiences I've had, it's especially disappointing that I spent nearly $3000 for this "privilege". If for whatever reason you do buy one of these, use the Home Depot credit card so you can return it within in a year and get a mower that actually works.

      Battery life tanks after 1 year
      Unfortunately, I took a gamble on this mower in July of last year. I have many other battery operated yard tools & push mower from a different company that I have successfully used several years without issue... but this was a larger investment. But like clockwork, just over 1 year old I have started to have issues with the battery life. Up until end of July this year (2021) I used to be able to mow my entire yard by the time the battery gauge got down to 1/2. Suddenly I started only getting through 1/2 my yard before it dies. I had initially given it the benefit of the doubt due to some recent heavy rain and thick grass but even setting the cutting height higher did not help... and it's still acting up 2 mows later. Additionally, sometimes it will look as if it is still at 1/2 a battery but it just stops moving & will start beeping or shut the blades off until I go charge it (including a picture of gauge- it wouldn't let me keep mowing & I've used it under 16 hours total). It worked well for the short time it worked, but I can get through my yard easier with my lithium ion battery operated push mower now.

        Beautiful and quiet mower
        I am really impressed. It took care of my overgrown grass with ease. It has a great turning radius also. The bagger kit works great only issue is it seems to not fill up the bag on the right side as easy as it does the left. Overall battery is the way to go here.

          loving mowing? YES
          wow what used to take 2 hours on foot now is a 20 minute ride. Cool features, can fit in tight areas and a tight radius.

            Squeak issue resolved FINALLY
            Finally found the source of the squeak. After taking the thing apart, changing the transaxle oil and lubing everything I could find, we located the source in the front axle. It can sound like it's coming from the rear when you're in motion, especially with the mower engaged. Spray Lube in here behind the rubber bumpers:

              Simply Amazing!!!! It was comparatively speaking very expensive but well worth the purchase! I have an acre of land with steep hill plateaus. With this unit I can mow the grass going up and down hills THEN hook up the dump truck and carry my edger and leaf blower AND STILL BE ON FULL CHARGE! On holidays I put the kids in the dump truck and pull them around the property again and again without disturbing the neighbors! How you ask? Because the unit is relatively silent when the mower is not in use! It drives like a zero turn unit! Wait! There’s more… I fit comfortably in this unit… I am 6’4” 260lbs!!! What was bad about this purchase was it took a month to get it after ordering!!!! Tip: Directly contact the shipper they immediately knew what had happened and where the unit was in the process. Several, and I mean several calls to the horrible Home Depot customer service network was frustrating and discouraging. The people were nice but the system is/was horrible!!! I even went to the store and it took a store manager most of the day to find out there was a problem. He did call me back though with the bad news. Call the shipper if you have any questions they were very easy to work with.
