75 AH 42" Zero Turn Electric Riding Mower
75 AH 42" Zero Turn Electric Riding Mower is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 106.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Totally Impressed I have had this mower for about 3 months now and am totally impressed with it. I have 21/2 acres to cut and have not seen the battery gauge down below 40%. My mowing time has been cut in half because of the speed that I can mow. The build quality is solid as a rock, the comfort of the seat in relation to the control arms is very comfortable. So far, I have found nothing that I would complain about. The only sound that you hear as you are mowing is the whirring of the blades, no loud engine noise, no gas fumes, no oil, no belts to change. I cannot see myself ever going back to a gasoline powered mower. Thanks Ryobi for a quality product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Mower, Mediocre Manual I purchased the 100ah mower a few weeks ago. It took a few uses to get used to driving a zero turn. The mower cuts beautifully, much better than my old lawn tractor. I am also finding that the batteries last long enough to mow for about 1-1/2 hours. That is not quite what was claimed if you consider proper battery care. I would have given it 5 stars but I found the manual to be a disappointment. It has almost nothing on breaking in or caring for the batteries. It also lacks a parts diagram with all parts numbers listed. These things and the current lack of spare parts and especially replacement blades does not bode well for Ryobi’s commitment to this product and their customers. I hope I am proved wrong.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So easy to use. AND QUIET!!!! Bought my 75AH as soon as it came out. LOVE IT! Easy to operate and use, the low speed drive is a must for beginners to zero turn mowers. In high speed, this baby almost near flies! I went through some 6 inch grass in my back property that usually gives most mowers an issue, went through it like a hot knife through butter. I mow a little over an acre and it shows 60-65% left of battery, definitely believe it will do the rated 2.25 acres on a charge. Maintenance is non existent. Check the blades, tires, that's about it. No oil, gas, or belts to look at. No engine maintenance or tear down. Definitely recommend it if you are looking for a new mower for a first time owner or as a replacement for your old gas one. Now we wait and see how the durability holds up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My opinion: Very best 42in mower in the world. This mower is tops on quality. From the start I was impressed by the package it was shipped in. First cut was about an acre with battery level dropping to 65% and back to fully charged in less than 5 hrs. The lawn looks smoother and more evenly mowed than I have ever seen it before. The ride is very comfortable and non-tiring. Cutting height is straight forward and easily adjustable. Removing the mowing deck was a pleasant surprise as only 3 pins had to be pulled and 2 electrical cables disconnected. I easily slid the deck out and turned it over to clean the grass buildup. Putting it back seemed even easier. It is expensive but for the years of service I am expecting and the convenience of always being ready to go with so little maintenance, it is economical. The biggest surprise of all: It is actually fun to mow grass.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WOW! This is my 2nd zero turn mower. My 1st is a gas-powered mower from a reliable, popular manufacturer. This electric Ryobi provides a much different experience from the other mower. The Ryobi has very good power and speed. The power is surprising. The Ryobi is very maneuverable and turns tighter than my other mower. The Ryobi drives better than my other mower - whether the mowing deck is engaged or not. The mower deck height is incredibly easy to adjust. The seat position also adjusts easily. The seat is comfortable and well-supported for bumpy terrain. This mower also has several features which stand out - namely the LED headlamps, USB port, 2 compartments for storage (with snap-back tops) and both low-speed drive and low-speed mow features for greater control in tight or challenging spots. This mower also features a rear-towing attachment. The battery life seems good as after 1 hour of operation, the remaining power was just above 50%. Most importantly, this mower cuts grass very well. The only features I would suggest for the Ryobi zero turn mower would be a roll bar and arm rests. When driving on uneven terrain, I tended to slide in the seat a bit to the left or right. Arm rests would probably add some stability for mowing on uneven yards. Overall, this has been an excellent experience. My other mower will be up for sale by end of this week.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceptional piece of equipment I HATE gasoline engines. Hate is a pretty strong word but its appropriate in this instance. I love everything about this mower. The build quality is surprising, not a flimsy plastic substitution, better built than Toro, Cub, Snapper etc home use machines. Keep in mind this mama jamma is very heavy and all the weight is on the back wheels. If the ground is the slightest bit wet/soft you are instantly sunk and really stuck in the mud and you can't lift the rear wheels. It's fast and will mow wide open for over 2 hours = big yard

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! I purchased this zero turn just about a month ago and I absolutely love it. The ease of use is phenomenal, the fact that I don’t need gas or oil anymore is a beautiful thing. My old John Deer ride on used to take me 3 hours to mow my 1 acre all grass lot now takes me half the time. Battery life is more then plentiful I can do the entire lawn start to finish and still have 50% battery left over. If I had to give one minor complaint about this mower it would be that it is a little bumpy, my lawn isn’t the most smoothest lawns ever but none the less it does bounce you around pretty good especially when you’re going max speed. However I might try to fit this thing with a universal suspension seat to try and take out some of the bounce. Price point I’d say it’s pretty reasonable, I did catch it on a sale though. All in all like I said this machine is awesome and I would recommend it to anyone looking to make the switch from gas to electric.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from EASY !!!!!!!!!!! The ease of ordering, home delivery, assembly, and operation is amazing ! The friendly extremely polite home delivery service team members were dressed neat and clean in uniform shirts, on time, and efficiently put the mower in our garage. Two of us armed with our own tools for 13mm, 14mm, and 15mm open end and sockets, disassembled the nearly indestructible shipping container and assembled the zero turn mower's seat and arms in about 30 minutes. We had watched the safety video online and took a test run within 45 minutes of unpacking. The batteries were sufficiently charged and the charger is robust industrial quality with cooling fins, led status light, and has a carrying handles ! After having gas powered lawn tractors for decades, the biggest surprise for us is how quiet the mower is even with the blade engaged which sounds more like a vacuum cleaner than a mower. So easy to drive around bushes, flower beds, and obstacles. Straight even cuts, no adjustments required. We like everything about this 42 inch RYOBI electric mower !!!
