Cordless lawn mowers are not designed in the way that they will produce emissions, and they are quieter compared to the gas mowers. While they may need less maintenance, compared to gas machines, cordless mowers still require sharpening of the blades and replacing the battery after few years, and this may be expensive. In certain cases, it can be as expensive as a mower’s price. Still, such mowers are easy in using, and they do take up a little space in the garage or in the shed. Some can even be folded up and hang at the wall. Electric mowers run on the lead-acid batteries like those found in the automobiles, but this technology had now stopped so that lighter mowers based on lithium-on (li-ion) technology may be used instead.

In one of the professional test, it got the scores that are comparable to the top rated gas models which earned it to get the best ratings when it comes to side discharging, bagging and mulching.

The manufacturer said that it is capable to mow at least a half acre and owners back this up. This is plenty taking into consideration that most owners have only normal sized lawn. For people who have large yards, they may mow the back and front yards in just two sessions. The battery will charge faster enough, and they can recharge it when they are eating their lunch. Its battery has a three-year warranty, and since the product is still new, it is not clear how long the battery will last. It is expected to last for 5 years.
There are many areas in which this mower is the best. It is much better for the environment compared to the gas mower, and it is convenient. The mower has a forward speed, and it may be set in matching the pace of a user to reach to 3.6mph in case you wish to jog while mowing.

Still, the owners say that mower offers great value, and it cuts well. Ryobi has been around for many years now, and it has been tried and proved except some few complaints.
