Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I bought this yesterday at Home Depot. It is my first battery tools for outdoor and it's amazing!!! Much lighter and quieter than my petrol mower. In addition, it is better for the environment, no need to go to the pump when the tank is empty. When it stops, just enough time to relax, drink a beer and the battery is charged again to finish the job.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do Not Buy Great until 1 year later. Mower continues to turn off when using self propeller. Called ryobi not much help. Referred to authorized repair centers. None want to fix unit. They all say there too busy and not accepting warranty repairs. Also batteries don't last. I use to be able to cut my lawn with one battery now I need 2. Poor and unresponsive customer service. Left with a useless lawnmower. 😞

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gas or Electric: Ryobi Electric lawn mower wins! Went to buy a new gas lawn mower at Home Depot. Their main display is all now electric so asked one of the Home Depot crew about them. They were very informed and helped me make the choice easily. I purchased the Ryobi 40V electric walk behind lawnmower a month ago. Have mowed the lawn 4 times now and have no doubt I made the right choice between Gas or Electric. This mower is much quieter (my neighbors love ithis), easier to maintain (no gas or oil), stores upright in less than half the space my old gas mower used. No gas fumes (my wife loves this!!!). Several of my neighbors have stopped by to "check it out", fun to show the features.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Must Have, I'm in love! We got this mower because our gas mower consistently needs servicing. I was skeptical about switching to a battery powered mower. My husband has a full line of battery powered Ryobi tools that I have used and have been very pleased with the performance. When I went to the store I wanted to browse the selection, however there happened to be a Ryobi rep there and he answered my questions and recommended the mower that I purchased. This mower is easy to start and it starts reliability everytime! The mower easily cut my grass and I only drained 1 of the 2 batteries that came with the mower. I am a 5'5" 120 pound woman and I easily cut my large backyard in the Florida summer heat! I will 100% recommend this to everyone I talk to!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product Had purchased mower last year and couldn’t be happier. This year I ran into a snag with the operation. I contacted Ryobi and it was quickly resolved without issue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just as good as gas Bought this at HD and love it. Lifelong gas user and recently converted to the Ryobi 40 V tool line - have used the mower three or four times now and I absolutely love it. It goes with my blower weedeater & pole saw so far. Can’t recommend this line of tools more.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible customer service.batteries won't charge. Bought my ryobi mower 14 months ago. Batteries wont charge. 8 phone calls. Home Depot wont help me. Ryobi keeps me on hold. 7 phone calls. Still no human has answered. On hold for 40 minutes. Referred by text to repair store 1 hour drive away and told there is a 3 week wait time to even trouble shoot the mower. Lousy customer service! Mower only has 12 months use! Batteries wont take a charge. I would not buy this product again! Meanwhile I had to resort to using a weedeater to cut my lawn. I will edit and upgrade this review if and when Ryobi honors their products. One star.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Mower and battery life! I purchased this mower last week and got a chance to use it today, Wow the cut is clean and even. This is my second Ryobi mower the first one the RY40108 20" I purchased in 2017 and it still has a great cut running like new I've been looking to upgrade for over a year now. I love the RY401200 with the crosscut blades makes a big difference the 7.5 battery has good power I mowed my lawn and my neighbors front and back trimmed and used my blower and the battery was at 50% when I finished. I'm very pleased with my purchase and all my D Ryobi 40v tools 👍🏼
