Too big of a file or too stupid.

No, it’s on here.  The reason there have been no comments is because no one cares.

How long does the battery last in one of these.


My only reservation about electric mowers is the lack of torque.  Has that been a problem for your?


Depends on the length of the grass.  If I let the grass get too long I slow the self propel speed down or set the height higher.  There is an auto control on that controls the blade speed in order to conserve the battery.  I get my lawn done easily on 1 full charged battery there is storage on the mower for a spare so you can have two fully charged batteries.  It really comes down to the size of your yard and mowing habits.

Just mowed for the first time with the new Ryobi. Pretty slick. The yard looks great and it only used 1/4 of the battery. I even mowed my neighbors front yard. I mowed on the top setting and while it cut well, it didn't sound like it was spinning too fast. When I dropped it down a couple levels on the front and hit thicker grass it automatically added more power and cut through it like a champ.

It's also ridiculously light. I didn't get self-propelled for $100 more. It would have been a total waste on our yard. Maybe on a bigger yard it would be worth it. It's like pushing around a kids bubble mower, but it could cut your hand off.

So the government took a cut of your wages you used to buy the mower.  Then you give them another cut to buy the mower to mow the grass on the land you give them yet another cut to own.

Got the Ryobi battery string trimmer last year, the one with the higher power.  Really like it, will be getting the matching edger and blower next. 

Saw my first batter zero-turn mower this week, a 42" by Greenworks.  $5K.   Anybody with info on power or longevity of the electric ZT's?
