115 AH 54" ZERO TURN ELECTRIC RIDING MOWER is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally a mower without the noise! This Ryobi 54" mower is so smooth and does not require user to wear hearing protection. The seat is the most comfortable I have experienced allowing me to cut large areas for hours at a time. The noise is minimal & when the mower is not engaged there is a little hum of the battery as you glide along. Battery charge lasts up to 3+ hours depending on height and thickness of cutting surface. The controls are well suited for easy reach during operation. There are two compartments to hold cell phone, etc. and easy to reach drink holders. The design was very well planned for ease of operation. Environmentally friendly using no gas & oil and little noise.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from State of the Art Mower...needs Bagger! I am very happy with my Zero Turn purchase. It works beautifullly - it's so nice not to have to start up a gas engine, wait for it to heat up - and all the noise and fumes. Electric is the way to go and this is a great unit! It's so nice to roll around silently with the blades off - and the cut is immaculate! The only down side - is when I purchased from Home Depot it indicated that a bagger is often purchased with it - however it turns out that there is no Bagger attachment for this mower. I sincerely hope Ryobi is working on a bagger/blades for this unit - then it would be absolutely dominant!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Fabilous! But, some teething problems I love this mower, despite its foibles. It cuts the grass much faster than our previous monster gas powered lawn tractor (also 54") and happily cuts through waist high grass that would have defeated our previous mower. However it slipped a lot on our hilly yard (which has max slope about 17 degrees, usually much less), so I had to replace the tires with high traction ATV tires. I was disconcerted to read in the manual that max slope should be 15 degrees and to stay at least 7 feet away from any ditch or embankment. Well, I can't do that, most of our yard is ditch or embankment. I was delighted to find that it can easily pull our little trailer (max recommended weight is 500 lbs). However sometimes the mower won't go forwards when I switch it on - I have to go into reverse first - and sometimes it suddenly stops and beeps at me for no apparent reason. So I have to take it to Home Depot to get it fixed. I LOVE the fact that there is no gas or oil changes involved. So overall, I recommend this mower, but I think they should have put better traction tires on it, since you rely on traction for both steering and braking.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Recommended improvements Pros: industry leader in the shift to electric with a wider mowing variance and zero turn Recommended: 1. Seems to still be using a lead acid battery which degrades over fewer cycles than lithium like they use in smaller mowers 2. Batteries would be nice if they were swappable on the go. Not as big of a complaint but still would be nice 3. That’s pretty much it, just recommend they keep up with battery technology that they use in the rest of their lineup. I should be able to buy an extra/replacement battery without going through warranty or through an arduous process

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes mowing fun, less tiring Only have about 20 hours on it but it's hard to believe how even a cut is produced. Really a good mower. That said there are some improvements that could be made. First, Home Depot should sell replacement blades. The seat is ok but could have a little more suspension. Would like to have batteries with more capacity and have the battery meter that was more visible while in use. Would also like the ability to add a ROPs and sunshade. It was easy to do the initial assembly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I just might keep it, but... I wasn't looking for a mower nonetheless an electric zero turn. My wife got an offer from Home Depot, she showed it to me, I looked at the sales pitch and the reviews. I watched some videos and thought wow, 3.5 acres and I have almost 2.7 that I cut so I should be good for battery life. I have cut once and will update as I have 30 days to return so I have at least 3 more cuts to evaluate this device. I have had electric cars and electrical tools that use batteries. I understand depredation very well and I also have experience all the upsides they speak of regarding gas and belts as I have a Husqvarna 54" tractor I run almost everyday. My terrain is not flat has several slopes and one small hill. The land is not smooth so ride is important. Besides getting use to handle bars, the mower demands very small adjustments in steering when hitting all those animal holes and ruts. The hills will be my learning area as this zero turn feels light in comparison to my tractor. The cut of the grass was superior to my tractor and I take great care to show a good cut to impress my wife and neighbors. The assemble as others have noted was very simple at about 30 minutes whereas the assembly of my Husqvarna was about 4 hours. No gas, no belts and away I go, I have a good feeling for this mower but I am concerned about battery life. I was not able to finish 2.0 acres. 5% was left on the mower and I started with a fresh 100% charge. It said on the clock 1.8 hours when I was done which is much faster than my tractor. Yes some running around to get use to it was done but not that much and not on hills or with the PTO running. I will update about battery life with the next cut as I will change my mowing strategy to accommodate the zero turn. Traction can be an issue with the tires even with dry grass on hills but not a serious issue. Like all electric vehicles I own milage is always calculated with ideal conditions. Electric demand is determined by conditions such as speed, hills and then the use of the mower itself when cutting. I will address this again. I am sold on the potential but don't like to be oversold so I am being quite careful for saying it is a keeper.
