Rated 2 out of 5 by from Too many finicky connections I borrowed my friends last years model the morning of a back yard bbq, when my gas mower died suddenly. It was so nice i bought this one the next day. It has taken 45 minutes of frustration and sheer stubbornness to mow 40 sq ft of back yard, due to one or more connections not lining up right. Ive been through all the redit and ryobi tips, its Shocking how many similar complaints there are on this model vs last years. Sometimes simplicity of a single on off switch is appreciated. I have a 2 minute video, but im not about to upload it to youtube first.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Super Easy to Use and Setup...However Product is great quality, incredibly easy to setup and use. No confusion at all. However, if you're trying to cut fairly dense grass more than 3-4in at a time it will seize up the blade and you'll have to lift it to clear the access mulch. If this happens it puts a lot of stress on the battery heating it up even more leading to very poor runtimes. Just cut my grass for the 2nd time using this and it couldn't even last 30mins on a full charge. Very disappointed with the battery life and had to get an additional battery so I can switch off. Not only that the batteries are insanely expensive and hard to get a hold of. The included battery also takes forever to fully charge, close to 2-3hrs from empty. It's really a shame because the product itself is great for the price and I love Ryobi products due to aesthetics and quality and I want to love this a lot but the battery leaves a lot to be desired.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from HAPPY THUS FAR (POSITIVES AND NEGATIVES) As you can imagine, I was really excited to purchase this lawnmower -- no more gas cans! The lawnmower works fairly well. The negatives: The battery sometimes will not finish my 25 minute lawn cutting; you can't let your lawn get too long or you will deplete the battery; the cutting blades don't seem to be sharp enough; the lawnmower was shutting off on me, and we discovered a small plug was off on a cable leading from the hand portion to the motored area. The positives: no gas or pollution; much quieter than a gas option; lightweight; easy to use. Don't know how the rear bagger will work when it comes to fall leaves, but we will see. Happy with the product thus far though.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I bought this 3 weeks ago and I am returning it The grass in the spring is thick because of all the rain we have been getting and our lot is a double lot with a large pool and deck taking up most of the backyard. The first two times we cut the grass the lawnmower cut the grass properly but took 2 batteries to cut the back and 3 hours later,once the batteries were charged, it took the two batteries to cut the front grass. This week the grass was a little thicker and the lawnmower bogged down and couldn't cut the grass,we are returning it for a gas model, its a shame because it is quiet and light,

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than expected — don’t hesitate! Waited a month before posting this review. After driving myself crazy comparing options and features I went with this one. Long story short it’s amazing. Charges quick and has never died on me; not sure how big my front and back lawns are but I have a 50x100 lot with detached house and a decent amount of grass, and i can easily do both slowly without concern. Super quiet and snazzy to look at, my toddler calls it ‘really cool’. Both mulch and rear bag work great. Adjustable height is lovely and it folds neatly for storage. Self propelled feature is cool, you can adjust the speed and it goes really fast if you want it to. My main concern before buying was potential lack of power but have not experienced this; cuts through tall grass, damp grass, etc with no issues. Honestly, save yourself the comparison shopping and just buy it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good option for hills and trees I purchased this lawnmower as my lot has several trees and is sloped. Gas mowers can choak out and corded can be a pain. The self propelled option provides the necessary power to move the mower across 45 degree hills. Variable speed is a good feature. The cutting performance was good, not great....even on the slowest propelled speed. Some noticeable lines where wheels run. Mulch works well. Baged execution for leaf pick-up was not a strong as my previous corded lawnmower. Overall satisfied. 5Ahm battery appears to work well and charges quickly. Hope the battery holds out.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Huge disappointment I bought this lawn mower about a year ago. I have a yard that is nowhere near an acre in size so I figured it should work given the advertising. Right away I had problems with the battery running out before I had cut even half my yard. I called customer service who basically said too bad so sad for not reading the fine print, that maybe I was working it too hard and the battery was running out faster. Well after a year I can tell you we are talking maybe 700 square feet at most which is cut at least once a week in maybe 22 degrees weather, this lawn mower doesn’t perform as Ryobi would lead you to believe. So a few weeks ago I went and bought a second battery for nearly $200 and it STILL doesn’t do the job!! I cannot understate how angry I am about the false advertising with respect to this product. I would not recommend anyone buy this product unless they have less than 500 square feet of grass. For me it was a huge waste of time and money and I am unlikely to buy any Ryobi products again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lightweight but Powerful I bought this one so my 14 year old son could do the trimming around 3 houses. I didn't want a too powerful one that throws rocks and debris around if you are not careful. Takes an hour to charge and it lasts enough to do 2 full average city yards. Good purchase....happy with it.

I've never owned a self-propelled lawn mower. I realize it will move forward once the handle is depressed, but what about if I wanted to back up with it and cut at the same time? Is there a way to keep the blade spinning while moving backwards?

Asked by: Robjack007
There is a button and two levers to start it up, one turns the blades and the other is the self propelled forward. To pull the mower backwards, turn it, or drive forward without using self propelled you can just release the one lever once the mower is started. I found that using the self propelled option drains the battery a lot quicker and I usually need 1.5batteries worth of charge to cut my lawn using it. Whereas if I’m not using the self propelled lever I can cut my lawn using less than 80% of a single battery charge ... in hindsight the other ryobi mower without self propelled would have been a better option becuase of this.

Bought a returned cordless Ryobi 20" self propelled mower. Should there be a mulching plug or does it mulch automatically with the bag removed? Also where can I get a manual?

Asked by: Hebbie
It should indeed include a mulching plug, as well as a grass-catching bag. Various iterations of the manual may be found by googling "Ryobi 20" self-propelled cordless lawn mower"; there are also a number of extremely helpful, simple videos.

Hello, Does this mower have the option to plug in and function as a corded mower if the battery runs out?

Asked by: NeedsANewMower
No it does not however the battery lasts pretty good. If the grass gets too long let it discharge rather than mulch and you’ll get more miles. We have the matching blower and trimmer/edger and al the batteries are interchangeable. Hope this helps

hello I have a Ryobi grass trimmer that is 40 volt but the batteries I have for it are not 5 amp will they still work in the lawn mower as well.

Asked by: shewpac
Hi, I think it is highly unlikely that the battery would even fit in the appropriate place in the lawnmower housing

Bought a returned cordless 20" Ryobi self propelled mower. Does it need a mulching plug or does it mulch with just removing the bag?

Asked by: Hebbie
Hi Hebbie, The 20" Self Propelled mower does require a mulching plug to properly mulch. This plug should be included in the model you purchased. Thank you, Ryobi Tools Canada
