Great Little Mower
This mower has all the power needed is easy to manoeuvre in my small yard and has a great easy to detach grass catcher. The battery has plenty of power. Highly recommended.
Would not waste your money on these batteries
Bought the mower from Bunnings, while the mower works great, the work needed to keep the battery working is beyond a joke given the technology in batteries. The fact that the 36v will go into hibernation mode an not recover unless you are “using the mower and recharging the battery every two weeks” as explained by a Ryobi sales rep at a Bunnings store is sign that the product is either cheap or Ryobi have no understanding how often people need to mow small yards. Bunnings won’t do anything unless u have the receipt for a mower bought less than 12 months ago, even with each individual mower being tracked by serial number into a store. Stay away
Good idea but short of the mark
Plenty of power and good range. The catcher is a major letdown, it's difficult to get on and is angled up significantly meaning clippings don't get to the back of the catcher and they start coming back out in the grass before it is 1/3 full. The requirement to hold the Deadman levers while mowing is a bit silly too, no petrol mower ever had these. Also had two batteries fail within 12months and although they have Ryobi written all over them and the date of manufacture stamped into them, Ryobi won't replace them without a receipt.

Great electric lawnmower that get's the job done
Great maneavorable lawnmower that has a very easy start. Ideal for medium sized lawns. The battery is good enough for about 30-45 minutes of non stop mowing as long as the grass isn't too long. All in all a good purchase.

Not up to scratch
This is my second Ryobi mower. It won't cut buffolo grass low and won't throw grass into the catcher properly. My first was great but won't be buying another one.
Great product plenty of runtime and always cuts evenly across my yard.
So good that I can pair up my line trimmer with the same battery.
Will be buying plenty more products from ryobi in the future and will be Recommending to family and friends.
Thank you very much I love it!
Best mower I’ve ever had
I bought this after reading lots of good reviews, it’s perfect for my yard. I bought it from Bunnings in a combo with a blower and I have revived that also on here. There is roughly 400sqm of lawn at home and this works a breeze. Catcher is big enough if you mow regularly, if you have left your grass go you may need to empty it once or twice depending on how long you’ve let it go. It a good investment if you ask me.

Does really good job, light weight
Love this mower!!! I used to have a 2 stroke petrol mover which was very heavy and noisy. The Ryobi is really lightweight and quiet when in use, the lightweight of the mower allows for easy maneuvering around the edges of the yard, allowing for maximum use of battery life. This size mower is ideal for a units or smaller properties however and very very happy with this mower.
May be OK on flat hard lawn but is very hard to push when lawn is on a slope or has any softness.
Doesn't throw clippings into the catcher properly - have to keep emptying "catcher" when only quarter full and it still leaves piles of clipping behind.
Have to mow at least 3 times or more every time - once up high, then lower and then at least once more to pick up the mounds of clippings that it keeps dropping even with frequent emptying.
I'm sorry that I wasted my money.
Loving My Electric Lawnmower
I'm very happy with this lawn mower my husband bought. It's quiet, has adjustable cutting length, can use catcher or without, easy to operate, no petrol needed as it has a rechargeable battery. The mower is easy to manoeuvre. We're very happy with it. We purchased this mower from Bunnings
Great. Love that one battery fits
Super conevenient love that one battery fits all the tools in this range including the mowers. Overall a great mower and a great brand very durable I haven’t had issues as of yet so no negatives. Would recommend this and the other matching parts of the range. Great buy and reasonable price

Sing the praises
Ive had my ryobi lawnmower 36V now for about 5 years. It was sssoooooo good, Ive since gone out and bought the 36v Blower, line trimmer and hedger.
The line trimmer (the one with the motor in the handle, not the one with the motor at the trim head) has a detachable shaft so I also swap the line trimmer for the edge cutter. (got a pole pruner as well but that doesnt get used too much)... look at the Ryobi expand-it series of split shaft devices.
I have 2 batteries and 1 charger.
Its an absolute pleasure to cut the edges with the edge cutter, ...
I love this mower, cuts nice and clean, no bulky grass lumps. I don't use a catcher when I mow anymore because this mower shreds he grass leaving it finely spread over the cut grass. Starts every time and runs well. I use the big ryobi batteries as I have a large area of grass to cut.
it's been alright
It works well but I thought it should be easier to use and the grass should be shorter it is easy to operate and easy to maintain so to what I guess it is a good deal it is cheap though so I guess it is good to what I paid for
It's good and quite
I mean it's still loud, but since it's electric it certainly is a lot quieter then your average mower, which is good, as you can avoid a annoying your neighbours. if you have a small enough lawn this just makes mowing more convenient, you never have issues with starting it, or having ton track down the right fuel. Seriously if this will suit your yard, then pick it up, it's the way of the future.
Husband loves his lawnmower
This thing makes lawn moving a breeze for my hubby. We went with Ryobi as it is a well know and trusted brand.
He has to keep our garden tidy as well as the nature strip at the front of our house and the common areas.
He has had no problem with this mower. It also looks very nice in my garage and isn’t too big that it takes up heaps of space
Decent, needs to mower more frequently
Pros: no more pulling the engine to start, electric starts save a lot of sweat and maintenance, decent cutting, height adjustable, whole mower is comparatively light, easy to empty out.
Cons: gets hard to mow if grass left for too long, blade might get stuck with the grass if it's wet. battery lasts a small lawn and gets quite hot under load.
bought this one after my previous one broke down, this is probably one of my faviourate lawn mower, It cuts in all conditions and has their is no fear of grass being stuck, its easy to push, the motor is absolutely amazing, but the best part is how easy it is maintain.
We only have this one 2 months and to be honest it’s our first mower and it’s been great! It’s pretty light, easy initial set up and does the job right! It also consumes very little petrol I think. I trust this brand and have all my houshold and garden tools by ryobi. I was hoping to get the cordless vacuum too but it is not sold here currently.
Questions & Answers
why do my ryobi stop working randomly
I really have no idea I am afraid, I do not have this issue, is it because the grass catcher is getting full, plus how old is your battery, these are the only things I have heard of.
less than 1 year, is there any sensor or button on the mower, I watched a vedio but not this model which got same.problem as mine, there is a red button , but nothing on my mower.
How do you attach the catcher?
Why does mower stop when battery has 2 lights on?
