    Q:awful lot of conflicting info on run time, so if I have 1 acre of flat ground cut my grass highest setting and stay about 5 mph will I cut the whole acre on one charge or not?

    Answer This Question

    A:  Hello, Paulie - The zero turn mower can provide a run time of up to 3.5 acres on one charge, so this should easily meet your 1-acre lawn care needs. Additionally, to get the best run time experience, we recommend mowing in dry conditions, maintaining a regularly cut lawn, and raising the deck height. We hope this helps!

        Fun to drive
        I really like my mower. It’s super fast road speed is impressive. I use it to pull a wagon and a jet ski trailer. It has amazing pulling power and is virtually silent when the mower is off. I can take the deck off in 5 minutes when I use it to pull a wagon off road. Makes cleaning the deck easy. The best feature is there is no carburetor to clog and no belts to break. I don’t have a big yard but the maneuverability is crazy. I use about 20% of my battery to cut my place in 45 minutes.

          Awesome mower for the money.
          [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This thing is great! Love how it cuts my yard and saves so much time. And virtually no maintenance. I just wish the batteries lasted longer and recharged quicker.

            Battery issue

              Good at first
              [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I am on my 3rd year with this mower. I really like the mower, and it seems like a quality machine. I like that the seat is nice and not just the foam type that cracks, and the hole thing seems sturdy. The problem is battery life. The first year was great, I could do my whole 1.5 acres of yard in one charge. The second year was okay. Just had to do it in two mows. Third year is pretty unacceptable, now it’s more like 3 mows, so I have to try to get some mowing in every chance I get.

                Quiet Mower
                Impressive mower with a very good cut. I mow 4 acres up and down hills. I can mow 3 acres before recharging...the hills plus my weight reduces battery life faster than anticipated. I do enjoy mowing with it.

                Great at first. Diminishing returns…
                I purchased my ZT540e about 2 years ago. I have loved the way it runs quietly and efficiently. However, I noticed a cracked weld near the front of the mower that should not happen. Also the battery life has greatly diminished from the time that I first used the mower. I can’t finish mowing my yard on one charge now. Do I need to buy a replacement battery already?

                  Great Lawn mower, just need to upgrade
                  This is a great lawn mower but it needs a major upgrade. Since Batteries are only good for 1 season, 2nd season comes around and your mower blades shut off at 60-65%. You don't have to believe me but look at reviews and why they changed their minds at 1 yr of owning this. With Lithium upgrade as shown in videos, it works GREAT. Here is a Video on changing out the battery from Lead Acid to Lithium. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Hn9ZQDwiLU&list=PLOggQzS4fbrzVFK1A9AgxZOVj5CgPmHnO&pp=gAQB

                    Battery died at exactly 1 year. Filed warranty papers. Still waiting
                    Battery died at exactly 1 year. It says it has 90% life left but it lasts 15-20m max on a charge WHILE DRIVING SLOW

                      Terrific product so far. I now have the nicest field in the area. And it is fun to ride- no more mowing chores, gas fumes and mess

                      Great mower,
                      I got this mower last fall in Peterborough Ont. I love it and I have converted it to solar . It is completely charged by the sun. The solar panel also provides great shade. The major problem so far is you cannot buy replacement blades in Home Depot Canada. You can see my youtube video ( save the world go green)
