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:

            Better Power
            Nice to have a electric mower. Just wish I could cut my lawn without the blades stopping. I know it works better with the lawn being short but that's not feasible sometime. So, for the loot you spend on this machine, it should be more powerful. Other than that, it's cool.

              I really want to love this machine, but in order for it to sense me on the seat I have to carry a 12 pound weight on my lap, otherwise it stops mowing. I'm a 130 pound female and never had this problem with my older mower from a different company. Because I literally have to carry a weight on my lap, I drive one handed and have a difficult time managing any of the bumps or slight inclines while mowing. I'm hoping that there is some explanation/solution so I can enjoy this machine and recommend it to other people I know.

                Tire issue!!!
                I waited 2 weeks for this thing to arrive and was excited to cut the jungle that has grown on my yard. I was towards the end of assembling the Mower and noticed the one front tire looked slightly flat. I tried pumping it but it refused to hold air. It was stuck on 5 PSI and everytime I tried putting some more air it would just seep out through the inflation valve. This machine is too expensive and took too long to arrive to be having issues and it’s absolutely frustraing. To top it off Home Depot sells it but doesn’tcarry any spare products in store. Might have to return it depending on how quick RYOBI or Home Depot can send me a spare tire. I’m ridiculously upset and disappointed at this whole purchase.

                  Thirty Two Months With A Ryobi RM480e
                  [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The mower has run nearly flawlessly for almost three years. It has had two issues. Both were fixed under warranty by Ryobi with phone calls. I mulch mow exclusively and the mower has cut my dense turf lawn cleanly with no clumping or tracking of clippings lying about. It tows a loaded 7 cu. ft. dump cart with ease. I added a fold up tailgate to carry a trash can for yard work. The mower is highly maneuverable and can slowly creep around obstacles easily. The blades hold a fine cutting edge all during the seven month mowing season, so I only put on a freshly sharpened set of blades at the end of the season when I put the mower into winter storage. Winter storage consists of parking the mower and leaving it plugged into the charger all winter. The system (custom Delta-Q SC-48 charger) uses no electricity until the battery pack voltage falls below 50 volts. The maintenance charges cost pennies. The second set of blades are the only maintenance items that I have purchased for this machine. The only other maintenance is to clean the underside of the deck regularly, just like any mower. I regularly mow a 10,000 sq. ft. lawn and an occasional 16,000 sq. ft. lot, so each usage time is less than the maximum run time for the mower. This mower was brand new technology to me, so I spent a lot of time learning about it. I learned it is pretty close to a golf cart with a mower deck, but much more complex. I measure the voltage of the battery pack and the recharge wattage to monitor battery performance as the mower ages. I track the usage and storage charges with a spreadsheet to see actual costs. The mower has been a joy to own and operate. The quietness, ease of operation, low cost, and lack of maintenance make using and owning the machine real pleasure. There are now four Ryobi RM480 mowers on my street of 16 homes. Some numbers tell the true story of owning this mower: My electricity cost is $0.13/Kwh. Total cost of 32 months of operation is $48.12 Total cost of electricity for 32 months is $19.15 Total number of hours of use is 73.3 Total number of charge cycles is 159 Cost of electricity per hour of operation is $0.22 Average electricity cost per year of winter storage is $1.08

                    Its a decent ride on, plenty fast and near silent when mowing. The ride comfort is lacking but I think a better tire/wheel combo would help out with that. The charging system is robust and the battery packs a punch. I’m mowing about 1 acre with no slow down. Aside from the ride comfort and the safety chime when you leave the seat, I’m happy with my purchase.
