Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great mower when/if it runs Bought one of these online. It arrived, we unpacked it and took it outside to use after charging the battery for 24 hours....nothing. Tried resetting it by putting handle down then back up, it started ... And ran for under a minute! Ended up taking it back to the store (1 hour drive each way). Got one that works. Used it 3 times in just over 2 weeks, suddenly in the middle of the third mow the blade stopped. Still self propels but won't mow. Call support, try the handle reset trick. No improvement. Told to take it to authorized repair shop (40 min away), they can't get it looked at for 2 weeks...guess we will start a hay field. Thanks for nothing Ryobi.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Charger stopped working after 1st use! I got this mower a month back and it charged well for the first try. I mowed my lawn which worked pretty good and then went back to charge and it won't show any light on the charger. I tried another charger that I got with the trimmer and that one does work, so it's not the battery but the charger that is faulty. Just called their customer support and they picked up the call after 10-15 mins and then they were internally chatting with each other and I kept on saying, hellooooo... but it was more important for them to discuss their internal stuff while a customer was on the line. Trying again to call them and get lucky so they talk to me!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great mower! Bought this mower reluctantly because I was unfamiliar with the name, how well can you trust commercials? Well, my thoughts: Pros: - key points i was looking for was 40V +5A battery includes as well as brushless motor. This package gives you 2x 40V 6A batteries, with a speed charger; charging with one LED lit on the battery took less than an hour to fully charge - mower has the ability to store vertically; not sure if anyone else has storage issues but this really saves space - I wasn't initally sold on self propelled but it really comes handy when walking uphill; zero effort trying to climb inclines - zero lag in tall grass; my old B&D 24V cordless mower would slow right down or stall if it got into tall grass; not this mower, it did not even change volume or speed when it got into thick grass; it really did act like a gas mower - the 21" deck is large; I didn't realize how many extra steps I took with my old 17" mower - it came with a free 40V brushless trimmer! With 2 batteries, you can get a two man job going to really speed up time Cons: why the LED headlight??? I dont get it! Who mows their lawn at 2am in the morning?? It just contributes to battery drain and there's no way to shut it down; the only gimmick I found on an otherwise amazing product

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super-Duper Mower! Incredible mower! Unlike a gas mower, it doesn't bog down very much in high grass and I think that it is actually because you can control the speed of the mover. If the grass is higher, you just slow down some and it cuts tight through. I also like that it is very easy to adjust the mower height with the wheels. The batteries worked for the full 70 minutes as advertised and recharge time is about 90 minutes. You do need to have both batteries at full charge or the cutting time is really reduced. 1 battery by itself gives you about 15 minutes which isn't great, so be sure to use two charged batteries for the 70 minute mowing time. Best mower I have ever owned.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly recommend - Excellent quality I purchased this a week ago to replace my 20yr Toro 22" 6.5hp personal pace self propelled. It seems to have the same power if not more. Does a better job of collecting the grass in the bag. The bag removes and installs easier. I have .25 acre lawn to cut with so far using less than one of the 2 batteries. I am really looking forward to not having to purchase gas, oil , air filters and replace pull cords. One thing that help make the decision was it is easier for my son to use since it is easier to start. I have since purchased the 15" weedeater and 24" headtrimmer. I highly recommend these as well. Good job Ryobi :) I am impressed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ryobi Electric Mower I was skeptical about buying an electric mower but mostly did it because thought it would be easier so my wife & kids could use it without the issues of not having gas, can't get it starter, etc... This mower is fantastic, mows great, the self propelled is awesome, no issues so far. I have a large property and was worried about battery life but have yet to even kill 1 battery let alone have to switch to the 2nd that it came with. So far it is super easy to use, I love the fact you only hold the safety lever and hit the button to start mowing. HIghly recommend to anyone!!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Reasonable but not wonderful. I purchased the 40V Self Propelled Lawn Mower a few weeks ago. I have used it a dozen times. I am a little disappointed. My biggest concern is maneuverability. Pro's: Easy to start. Will not rust. Easy to clean underneath. Don't have to bother with gas and oil. Battery's charge quick. Comes fully assembled. Comes with two battery's and both are carries in the mower and is easy to switch over. Somewhat cheaper than competitors equivalent. Good mower and battery warranty. Con's: Much heavier than I anticipated. Much more difficult to maneuver than my gas version with front wheel drive. Should be made with front wheel drive not back wheel drive. On a normal garden, battery's will not last as long as company says. I have a fairly small garden and it takes 1 and a 1/2 battery's. Overall reasonable for the price and has benefits of battery power but maneuverability is an issue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Moses like a charm Just completed first cut of a 3000 sq. Ft lawn with 6in tall grass. Cut 2 1/2 to 3 inches and filled 5 bags of cuttings. Battery lasted until last pass then died. Do not expect this to happen again as will not let grass grow that long. When finished I tipped the deck over and there was not one blade of grass in the deck. Very impressed with the operation except for one minor detail. The slide button for the self propel motor has a tendency to move on its own or can be easily repositioned without being aware. Will probably tape it to the position which gives me the most comfortable speed. All in all a very good product and very easy to handle for a poor old pensioner..

The description mentions dual active battery ports but I see in the reviews that people refer to changing the battery after one is exhausted. Question: Does this mower use both batteries simultaneously without the need to change the battery?

Asked by: Desfaria
The mower uses one battery at a time, the arrow on the safety key pointing to which of the two batteries is in use. If you exhaust the battery, turning the safety key to point to the other battery puts you back in business.

Can I turn off self-propelled feature on this lawn mower (Model # RY401140US) and use it as a push lawn mower? Thanks.

Asked by: lzhmsa
You can run mower and not engage the self-propelled feature, but its a heavy mower for being electric. If you never want to use the self-propelled option look at a different mower.

The instructions show a mulching plug and a side discharge chute.  Was it supposed to come with these parts? It sure didn’t.  And it says that it won’t start without either the bagger or the mulch plug attached. I’m not bagging my grass. It needs to mulch

Asked by: Marshmallow
There should be a mulching plug in the package, for you to (optionally) install. My recollection from last spring is that my (2021) 21” Ryobi ran fine without using the bagger attachment. The mulching piece (installed it shortly after test-cutting) actually blocks the side discharge chute.  So yes, you should have received a mulching attachment. If you lawn mower os

I love how this mower folds for storage. Does Ryobi make a wall mount to be able to store this on a wall during the winter months?

Asked by: Zoolaband
Hi Zoolaband, Thanks for reaching out to us regarding the 40V HP Brushless Cordless 21-inch Self-Propelled Walk-Behind Lawn Mower Kit. We do not have a lawn mower wall mount system, but we did just release our RYOBI LINK Modular Storage System, which is an ideal fit for power tools and other lawn and garden tools. The Wall Rails have a 75 lb. per linear foot weight capacity, so I would not suggest using it to hang your lawn mower. For further information, please contact RYOBI Customer Support at 1-800-525-2579. Thanks, RYOBI Canada Team.

If you want to disengage the self propel motor and ratchet wheel assembly one day, is it possible to do so and use like a normal manual push mower?

Asked by: Matt
You can use it as a normal push mower anytime …..it only engages self propel feature when you pull up hand levers. Self propel is a handy feature not only for hills but also ‘driving lawnmower’ to storage or a different lawn without blade turning.

Got the mower out of the box and charged the batteries and started the mower and every time I turned the mower it would shut off.  Even if I was going along in a straight it would shut off when I slowed down.  Any ideas why?

Asked by: Iggy23
Hi Iggy23, Thanks for reaching out to us. This is not a common issue for any of our lawn mowers let alone our new 40V HP versions. Please ensure the RED safety key near the battery terminal is fully plugged in and all foldable parts are properly un-folded when in-use. If you are still experiencing technical difficulties with this lawn mower you do have a few options. You can simply exchange it for a new one at your local Home Depot store, you can also take it into one of our local service centers for review and service. To find a list of service centers near you, please visit ryobitools.ca. To learn more about this products please contact 1-800-860-4050. Thanks, RYOBI Canada Team.
