My Ryobi Lawn Mower — Gas-Like Power But Cordless!

Power through thick grass easily with this amazing cordless lawn mower. So quite, your neighbors will be sneaking a peek!


Late last fall, our electric powered lawn mower died. Chris and I had used it for over ten years at our last home where it worked well. To operate it though, we needed a very long outdoor extension cord. But we had a super small lawn so it was really no big deal. Our new home however has a much bigger lawn, like almost three times as big.  

So when we started shopping for a new lawn mower, we loved the idea of possibly going with a battery operated lawn mower this time. I discovered that Ryobi had a battery powered lawn mower that could deliver even more power than our old one. And lucky for me…the wonderful people at Ryobi were kind enough to send me one to try out!

Chris and I both love this 40V 20” deck Ryobi Lawn Mower! It has gas-like power but with a cordless convenience. We are totally amazed by how much faster we can finish mowing the lawn when we’re not struggling with a cord. 

It’s so simple to operate too! We grab the battery, install it, and then check the charge. With just a simple push of a button, you can see the battery strength. We’ve found that it holds its charge for about a month when we mow once a week. (It usually takes us about 20 minutes to mow both the front and back yards.)

To start it up, we simply press the button,  squeeze the lever down and off we go a mowing. That’s right! It has a push button start. No starting cord to pull over and over. It even has LED lights so we can mow late into the evening when it’s much cooler outside.

Another feature we love is how quiet it is when mowing. True story, I was in the backyard mowing one day when a neighbor popped his head over the fence and said, “Is that a lawn mower?” A little confused, I replied, “Yes, it is.” He says, “I thought maybe you were mowing, but it was just so quiet. I didn’t think it was possible for a lawn mower to be that quiet! That’s amazing!” And I told him, “Ya! It is! Love it!”

Did I mention that this lawnmower also folds up? We have a very small two-car garage with like no storage. But look how much space this lawn mower needs when stored away.

Isn’t that amazing?! From the wall of the garage, it only sticks out by 15 inches! I can totally park my car right next to it with no problems. When you are short on storage space, this is a lifesaver! I just place the bag on top for easy storage. 

Here’s a little video to show you more of the lawn mowers features in action:
