Don't let the compact design fool you, this lawn mower has a lot of power and uses very little battery! No problem going up our hill and though not zero turn, it has a very good maneuverability. It shifts from forward to reverse mow without having to take your hands off the wheel. We were able to fit it in our garage with both of our cars in the garage too (see picture). The ride is also very smooth.

  • May 06, 2020

I've only had the mower for a couple of weeks and have only mowed two times, so I can't comment yet on wear and tear or dependability. The mower was easy to assemble and operating it is pretty straightforward. The mower cuts and mulches very well, turns on a dime, and can really zip along. The fact that it's electric means it's quieter (the mower sounds like a giant fan rather than an engine), cleaner and there are no fumes. So far, so good.

Fabulous machine. Corners and handles great. Much faster than my gas riding mower. Holds a charge superbly. I mow for 45 minutes - 1 hour and only use a small percentage of my battery capacity. I had been worried about getting the smallest Ryobi battery (50 amp hours) but that was wasted worry. Tows heavy loads in my cart no problem. Did I say quiet and fun? I'm thinking of looking for a track to go racing.

  • Makes grass cutting fun again
  • July 01, 2020

The first cut with our new Ryobi RY300E showed that it is well worth the cost and the task of reorienting to the electric age. My wife and I chose this smaller model after looking at the 38-inch RM480E. We didn't get the cruise control, USB charger and cell phone slot that the 38-incher includes. But we liked and needed the more compact size. We ordered it online and assemble it ourselves, and that was easy enough. And it sure is nice to zip around the yard much more quietly without gas and oil. Here are some good points and a couple of quirks you might want to know about. • This mower is fun to ride. It's faster but quieter than our old gas mower, and it's nimble around trees and other obstructions. • The cutting levels go from 1 inch to 4 and 1/2 inches in 1/2-inch increments. You can easily change levels with your left hand while driving with your right. I like that for my Florida lawn because I can instantly go high for St. Augustine, lower for centipede and even lower to kill the crabgrass's joy. • If you order online and have it delivered, assembly is easy enough. It took me longer to take apart the metal frame that packaged the mower than it did to assemble the mower itself. All you need to do is connect the battery and attach the steering wheel and seat. Metric wrenches and a Torx bit are provided in the packaging, but a socket wrench with 12mm, 13mm, 14mm and 15mm sockets will make the job easier. Instructions also call for a torque wrench to get the proper tension on the steering wheel nuts. But I was able to get 6 foot pounds with a foot-long socket extension and a fish-weighing scale. Details are on Youtube. • You'll have to dispose of the metal packaging: several metal rods and the metal frame with feet. Our town has solid waste pickup, but we didn't need it. A local Fred Sanford pulled up in his truck, pulled the metal off our trash pile and took it all away. • The 50Ah battery seems to be more than enough if your yard is an acre or less. Ours is about 10,000 sq. ft., and the battery was still almost fully charged after our first mowing. From what I understand, it's best to leave the charger plugged in at all times between mowings. Other Q&A's on the website have details. • Starting up and mowing in reverse are a bit quirky. You have to engage the blades -- pull up the red knob on the console -- to start the motors. That's the opposite of gas mowers I've had. To cut in reverse you have to push the remote mode button first. If you don't, the mower will shut off when you press the reverse pedal. To avoid that annoyance, I left the reverse mode on while I was cutting. If you disengage the blades -- push down the red knob -- you can still drive forward or backward as you would in a golf cart. • The reverse pedal is separate from the forward pedal, just behind and to the right. You have to pull it toward you with your foot, rather than push it forward. It took me a few times to get used to that. • This mower is tight for me at 6'2" with a size 13 foot. But it's tolerable. If you're also tall or long of limb, you might consider the bigger 38-inch model instead. • You might want to check whether there is a Ryobi service center nearby in case you ever need it. It seems they are few and far between. For parts, you might have to special-order with Home Depot or the Ryobi parts center. For example, I've seen in Q&A's that replacement bagging blades for this mower don't show up anywhere online. • If you decide to buy, look for sales and discounts. We used a special 10% discount for credit card users to get the price even lower. • You might get lucky and find a display model at your Home Depot store and get a good price. We saw the larger 38-incher at our store but were told it already was sold.

  • July 14, 2020

the machine does a good job cutting the grass but the steering lacks the ease of most mowers and when you make a full turn it kinda locks in position and is very hart to correct. also the deck can be thrown off kilter if you bump anything with it

The Ryobi Riding Mower arrived a week early and wrap and bolted down. Nice. It was very easy to assemble, found the direction very easy to follow. they were plan and simple. (I'm a 76 years old woman) for making something even woman can put together and USE. I had it all together, got it charged up, stared it up and away I went. Have fairly large yard got it mowed In over an an hour and still had plenty of charge left. It was a pure pleasure to have, don't have to depend on someone to mow. It met my expectations and more. Had it over a week. No dislikes. Wonderful machine Thank You Ryobi for making a machine even a woman can use.

I have over an acre of non-flat land, that dips and has grades of at least 30%. For the flat land, this is a great mower, fun to drive, even to get my mail from the box down the street. However, I've had times where 3 out of the 4 tires will lift off the ground when I hit some bumps in my land, with a 10% grade, it almost seems to light at the front and if I go too slow I can get wedged/stuck in that hole. Something to keep in mind.

Assembly was quick and easy - basically just putting on the seat and steering column. VERY pleased with how quiet it is! I could hear the birds in the yard over the sound of the mower - and the birds were not bothered by it, which is amazing. I had to knock down thigh-high grass when the mower arrived, and it dealt with it far more easily than I expected. Since then it's made my roughly 1 acre of lawn look fantastic, and still hasn't used more than about 1/4 charge.
