Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works great but battery has shorter run time Works great and easy to use, even for a female of average strength. My only complaint is that the battery only lasts about 30 minutes. I specifically bought this mower as it claimed 48 minutes battery life, which would be enough to complete our lawn. 30 minutes is not enough, so we have to stop and recharge before we can finish the last part. Buying a second battery would cost half the price of the entire mower!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best mowing experience! Seriously. My new Ryobi electric lawnmower is FANTASTIC! I bought it a few days ago and have been somewhat skeptically awaiting the time to get out and mow. Having never used a battery powered mower, I had low expectations, although the reviews made this one sound like it might be up to the task. I finally got out last night and I wish I could give it 6 stars. No gas or oil to deal with. No exhaust fumes to have to inhale. And best of all MUCH less noise! I can listen to music or a podcast while mowing. One really nice surprise was when I hit a longer/thicker section of the lawn and, rather than bogging down like my old gas mower, it seemed to auto-accelerate and cut through it! Seriously - this mower is priced about the same as gas mowers and is in a different universe compared to gas. I will never go back. I have an average suburban lot (66' x 100') and a single battery covered me without recharging. Hopefully it's durable. Time will tell.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't Go Wrong I have had the Ryobi 16" Mulcher for the last five years and have been so happy with it decided to get this one. I have been so impressed, with only one battery I do my back yard, front yard and neighbours lawn on only two bars. The mulching leaves no clumps of grass so have never had to use the bagger. Way more sturdy than the previous generation and actually quieter. The dual stage motor is great for the heavier grass. Glides through with ease and so light. I would recommend this to anyone that has a medium sized yard. The charger has its own built in fan to cool the battery as it charges and does it in no time flat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great I bought this yesterday and out of the box I liked the build of it. I took the battery and charged it full in about an hour or so. The start button works almost on pressing it and the mower did the job very easily. I did my overgrown front yard and back yard (quite large) in like half hour. It was so easy I though I was doing something wrong. I bogged a couple of times on extra tall grass but with a couple more attempts I went through it no problem. When I finished, I still got half of the green lights on. Overall very satisfied.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mind blown I bought this, initially I was sceptical as to how it would perform on my smallish lawn and so far I’m extremely pleased. It cuts beautifully and the bagging is amazing, I can’t see a stray blade of grass once I’m done. It performs well even in tall, moist grass and it is incredibly light and folds for storage. I usually mow from between 30-45 minutes and so far it hasn’t died on me. I’ve been singing the praises to my neighbours and one of them bought a size bigger and she is loving it too. Oh and the height adjustment is easy, and the battery charges pretty fast, like 3-4 hours from almost drained.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best lawn mower to buy Just love this mower ….. was going to buy the 16 inch model so happy I did not I have a 400 sq foot lawn with new super thick sod and I think I can get 15 cuts per charge … or over 6000 sq feet per charge … the neighbor down the road bought the 16 inch with a 1000 sq foot lawn takes two batteries to do his lawn …just love how it folds up to fit in my garage…great engineering fits in to a super small space … best thing I have ever bought

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Waste money I won't recommend this machine. I would like to give zero if I could. It has the worst quality control and customer service. The machine worked for the first two months. Then it started showing issues. It won't start unless you press the start button many times. And it consistently turned off. It eventually became a piece of garbage, which I have to throw away. Before I do that, I will try to fix it by following an instruction posted on-line. There are people who are having the same issue as mine. I cannot send it back to Roybi as I have to pay shipping fee for this big machine. The customer service is useless, who tried to teach me how to start the machine. Overall, do not spend any penny on this machine.

Just bought this mower about a month ago and have had issues every time using it.  The safety key just doesn’t want to sit properly so it either doesn’t start or stops if it gets moved around.  Should I return the mower or is there a fix?

Back flap gets stuck under mower. How do I prevent this. Its not very flexible.

Asked by: Smhome
Hi Biggmo, I've recently, as in today, just learned that some models have the trail shield installed backwards.I had 2 different ones with the same issue. I'm finally getting one where this is not a issue.  I received a great deal of help from a manager at the YMCA drive location. They have been made aware of this problem at that store. You should take yours back and make sure before leaving the store, that it's not a problem.

What kind of gas equivalent power does this produce? What size are the back and front wheels?

Asked by: Mishka
The back wheels are 10” diameter, front 8”. Rolls nicely over bumps in the yard, no jarring. I had a 5 hp gas mower before and this one does not feel as powerful, but it has no problem with our grass in a regular sized yard.

How do you adjust the handle height for the operator's height ?

Asked by: Licc
You can't adjust the height. The handle must be fully extended in order for it to operate.
