Re: Owner feedback on the Ryobi electric riding mowers?
I'd never buy an EV for property maintenance. My GT runs at least 3 hours per cutting in the fall, most of that under pretty good load. Damp, long grass, plenty of leaves, pulling a Cyclone Rake.
Be sure of what you are getting. Look at the various battery drills/impact wrenches. Some are just for very light duty while others more robust. Gotta think these are more light than heavy duty. Extra battery? Cost? Repairs?
My bottom line is that whatever it is, it has to WORK, RELIABLY.
Added thought: Keep in mind that to extend battery range, everything in the construction has to be as light weight as possible. That means thinnest possible gauge metals, and plastics where ever possible.
Not bashing EVs here, just be sure you know what you are getting and that it will meet your needs. Otherwise it quickly becomes just more land fill or something for the kids to play on.
