      A:  It comes complete with charger but FYI the battery's last only about a year. And would recommend to upgrade to lithium battery

      by|Mar 13, 2023

        A:  Bought mine two years ago, I'm really pretty sure it came with the charger. It's probably stated somewhere in the description, youtube reviews or even the Ryobi website.

        by|Mar 15, 2023

          A:  The charging unit was included with the mower I purchased. It plugs into a normal 120 Volt outlet. It does take a significant time to completely charge the mower. Some state the batteries only last a year. I have two years of mowing on mine and the seem to be fine.

                Answer This Question

                A:  Hello, Chupen - Thank you for your question. You should never use the mower on steep slopes greater than 15°. You should only mow up and down slopes, not across. Additionally, the mower should never be used on wet grass. I hope this helps!

                by|Feb 2, 2023

                  A:  Did your previous 0turns weigh 800 pounds plus the operator? Ryobi states to only mow up and down a slope of no more than 15 degrees for safety. I have yet to hear of anyone having mowing traction issues with the Ryobi riders.

                  by|Mar 10, 2023

                    A:  This mower doesn't handle steep slopes. With modest slopes care must be used to maintain directional control. This is a dry grass only mower. The traction issues you mention. This deck will clog with any moisture in grass. Plus, wet grass uses more power.

                    by|Mar 14, 2023

                      A:  It does okay on "slight" slopes...when it runs that is. My mower quit working 10 months after I got it. Still under warranty, but not enough support to get it repaired. Been 8 months without it. I now have a 5k yard ornament.

                      by|Feb 2, 2023

                        A:  Conventional wisdom says that it's bad for the turf to mow it wet and Ryobi states not to mow in the wet. Also Ryobi states to never mow across a slope, only up and down the slope. The tires are turf tires designed for grass.

                            A:  The seat itself sets on 4 springs and helps with the rigid ride and is comfortable. 

                            by|Feb 3, 2023

                              A:  Yes, the seat is supported with two coil springs at the rear of the seat frame.

                                  A:  These are SLA batteries. Can't imagine paying 5k only to have dead batteries in about 18 months. You will soon be battery charging more than mowing! Even my 4yr. old daughter knows when she's on SLA and tells me to swap to the LifePO4 in her Power Wheels!

                                    A:  Unfortunately not so bad investment unless you modify it to lithium

                                      A:  Unfortunately not unless you willing to modify yourself otherwise the lead acid batteries die quickly if used at more then 50% and motors start to turn off when batteries need to be replaced about once a year to every 2 years on wear and tear

                                        A:  Not in this model. These are 4 12 volt, 115 ahr. SLA/AGM batteries wired in series to make a 48 volt pack. The batteries are rated for 1,700-2,000 charge cycles. That's likely more than what lithium batteries would do & cost far less to replace.

                                        by|Dec 5, 2022

                                          A:  The 80 volt 54" zero turn Ryobi mower uses lithium battery packs and costs $7,999 as compared to this model that lists for $5,499. That $2,500 difference will buy two sets of the SLA/AGM replacement batteries.

                                            A:  Previously documented lithium conversions of the Ryobi 48 volt mowers have cost about $1,700. That will buy at least 2 sets of replacement batteries. CubCadet lithium replacements cost $4,000 plus labor. Ego 56 volt rider replacements are $1,800.

                                              A:  Unfortunately not. It uses lead acid batteries which are vastly inferior to lithium ion batteries.

                                                A:  The electronics in this system limit the discharge to about 30% & then shuts the deck motors down to lengthen the lifespan to the 1,700-2,000 charges the battery manufacturer states. My mower is 51 months old with 395 charges on original batteries.

                                                    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)

                                                      It's a beast!
                                                      I love this mower! I can't say enough about it, we live on a farm and we do get tall grass and it handles it. The fabricated deck is first rate, solid and reinforced on the leading edge. It has a nice large chute that almost never gets plugged and welded and reinforced deck baffles. The controls are easy to use and precise. My only complaint is the charger, when they say it must charge overnight, they mean it. it charges extremely slow. Also, we have had it only a month and now the charger has gone bad on it so we're waiting a couple weeks for a replacement. It's on backorder, so I hope it isn't going to continue to be a problem.

                                                        Good mower 3.5 acres may be optimistic. Pick up at store
                                                        First off, pick it up at the store. Don’t ship to your home. The last mile carrier they use was a disaster. After more than a month and countless phone calls, I had to cancel my order and reorder for pick up at the store. Anyway, I’ve mowed my lawn 3 times with it now. I estimate it’s about 1.5 acres if I do it all. First time I did the whole lawn and put it away with 45% left. The second time I didn’t do the back part, so maybe just 1 acre and again it had 45% left. The third time I did the whole lawn and glanced down at the gage near the end and it said 15%. I finished up and parked it outside the garage to open the door. When I sat down and turned it back on, it was at 40%. So, I don’t know if the batteries were getting overheated or maybe the gage just isn’t accurate or what. Anyway, maybe it can do 3.5 acres, but I’m a little doubtful and I’d be afraid to push that. I have no previous experience with zero turn mowers, but everyone wanted to see it when I got it and I got the feeling from others that it handled similarly to any other zero turn. I think the biggest perk is the reduced noise, which I think is considerable although I still use hearing protection. I also like the simplicity and lack of maintenance required. I can’t say it’s stood the test of time yet, but it seems well made and to be good quality. We’ll see how long the batteries last and how bad they are to replace when the time comes, but hopefully that won’t be for years to come. Bottom line, I think the future is bright for electric lawn mowers and I’m enjoying mine.

                                                          Finally a mower without the noise!
                                                          [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This Ryobi 54" mower is so smooth and does not require user to wear hearing protection. The seat is the most comfortable I have experienced allowing me to cut large areas for hours at a time. The noise is minimal & when the mower is not engaged there is a little hum of the battery as you glide along. Battery charge lasts up to 3+ hours depending on height and thickness of cutting surface. The controls are well suited for easy reach during operation. There are two compartments to hold cell phone, etc. and easy to reach drink holders. The design was very well planned for ease of operation. Environmentally friendly using no gas & oil and little noise.

Towards the end of the season I noticed it wasn't going as far but didn't think much about it. Now starting 2023 season and I'm only able to get a quarter of what I was last year. There is a reason for short battery warranty and why they completely resigned their zero turns.

                                                              It was great the 1st summer…
                                                              Now, after the winter, and keeping it charging all winter like it says to do, the battery is at 40%. This even after the 1st use and charge. Another issue, it just stops working now after about 2 minutes. It’s acts like it is clogged, but there is nothing there but the normal grass.
