In the year 2017, it is insulting that ryobi chose to use lead acid batteries instead of long lasting, safe, lithium phosphates(lifepo4).( 3 year life vs 10+ years.) I would have paid $800 more for lithium. Heck i even used lithium on my last ebike, why cant $ryobi$?
Asked by: Justin
Probably flogging a dead horse, but I just did a check on a competitor to the RM480. The TroyBilt TR30 e is a LiOn powered mower that sells (pre-tarriff) for the same as the RM480e. The TR30 e has a run time of one hour as compared to the 2 hours of the RM480e. TroyBilt says the battery should last up to seven years. My study of the SLA/AGM batteries in the RM480e shows they should last 5 - 7 years (possibly longer if used and maintained properly). Here's the rub. The battery pack in the TR30 e costs $990 and requires replacement by a TroyBilt technician (don't know why, but that's what is stated). The four batteries in the RM480e cost $593 total (not the lowest price on-line) and can be replaced by the user. Imagine the cost delta if the TR30 e had large enough battery pack to run for two hours? I still think the SLA/AGM choice Ryobi made was the right one.

With nothing to synchronize the blades (separate motors) how do they overlap without hitting? Do they not overlap? If so, how does it not leave a seem of uncut grass down the middle of each pass?
Asked by: John
Baltimore, show us pictures of cut grass demonstrating your claim of gap between and net effective 19” cut? Your first picture clearly shows the blade on right (left when viewed from the seat) is several inches ahead of the other blade. Take a straight line between the rollers and drop a perpendicular line between the blades and you will demonstrate the cutting overlap. What your pictures show is exactly how every multiblade mower deck is made. Sometimes with some mowers one can turn at exactly the right/wrong radius leaving the gap you claim. If that matters then with this mower turn left, not right.

I've been using this mower for the entire summer and love it. However I have one growing concern as I prepare to put it away until the Spring: the battery power seems to be declining. When I first bought it and began to use it the batteries would indeed last the 2.5 hours for which they're advertised. Over the following months leading to now (November), the run time has slowly decreased. As I write this, I only receive about 1.5 hours of run time. I clean the mower deck before each use. Hopefully there is a simple solution to this. Please advise.
Asked by: Gyrene
To prolong new battery life it's recommended you only drain no more than 30% for 1st (10) uses. Check out mycountryacre.com for some great advice on prolonging battery life.

38 in. 100 Ah Battery Electric Rear Engine Riding Lawn Mower is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 492.

I purchased my Ryobi RY48111 in 2018 for two reasons: 1) easier on the environment 2) less maintenance. I sold my Kubota lawn tractor to purchase this electric Ryobi. I now have serious doubts about that decision. First of all, the cutting quality of both types of blades is not anywhere as good as the Kubota or other tractors I have used. Secondly, it is a bit awkward to smoothly change gears. Thirdly, I agree with the uncomfortable seat ride and hard seat critique by others. Fourth and perhaps my main issue with this tractor is tire slippage. Part of our property has a slight incline, but less than the 15% stipulated by Ryobi. However, on three occasions in 2018, I had to tow the tractor when the tires slipped. The grass on several occasions was damp, but not really that wet. I ended up tearing up the grass when the tires slipped. I have written to Ryobi, but there suggestion was to lower the air pressure in the tires. That was not very helpful. I never had these types of problems with Kubota, John Deere, or Lawn Boy. Ryobi's concept is great, but the actual implementation of that idea leaves a lot of room for improvement. I would seriously wait for improvements or look to another brand before buying this current model.

Only had it two weeks but love it, especially the bagging attachment which will eliminate the need to rake the leaves that have now fallen in FL. If the batteries last for three years or more, it promises to be the best, easiest mower in my experience. My previous Ryobi purchase was an expensive string grass clipper which burnt up the first month. I'm keeping my fingers crossed but the summer months will be the real test.

Delivered on Dec. 21in the rain, blocked my garage, didn't ring bell or notify in any way. Delivery was to be on Jan 3. The mower is quite nice. Runs well. Looking forward to using when the grass grows in spring.

I like the electric mower because I do not have to deal with oil, gas, spark plugs and all the other issues with a gas engine, I know its going to start and work. It's clean and quiet and does an outstanding job. The mowing deck is easily removed, and I also purchased the bagging unit, and I cleaned my yard of leaves in no time. This is the first riding mower I ever purchased, and I am very pleased with my choice.

Over this summer, I have spent many weekends trying to get my 480e to cut evenly. Following its use, my lawn looks like a series of steps. The poor appearance can be fixed by double cutting (two overlapping passes) by which time the angled cut is not obvious. But, by the time that I do that, I might as well have used my walk behind mower. At least pushing that mower gave me some exercise. I have interacted with the Ryobi representative to no avail. He is unable to recognize the problem, despite many images and videos. The problem is that the cutting deck never falls evenly on the two sides. It always rides high on the right rear, as though it was pivoting at some location in the midst of the cutting deck that could not go lower (i.e. fully down on the left and floating on the right). I have made full length adjustments and had the deck off a few times. The cutting deck still floats. I am at a loss to identify the cause and have given up on the Ryobi rep. I really want to love this mower. It's just driven me crazy. Apart from that, it works well. I have the bagger, and that is fantastic for clearing fall leaves. Except, that the bags fill very quickly. I have another device that chops up the leaves as it vacuums, so many more leaves per cubic foot, but you have to lug that around, hung over your shoulder, and aim it.
