    Buying Advice Ryobi 40v 6ah battery packs; beware of two different sizes

    What is the run time of the two packs (under the same circumstances (grass condition)? The mower pictured is their revised line for 2020 with a larger battery compartment (for only one pack now apparently) that will accommodate their larger packs (including the 7.5ah that just came out (at $230).

    Buying Advice Ryobi 40v 6ah battery packs; beware of two different sizes

    Gee, a 'EGO' fan boy. Or should I say a fan boy with a ego? :rolleyes: Both EGO & Ryobi are Home Depots pet brands. Your lame so called reason sounds like something from the Dictator of 18,00+ lies and counting.

    Buying Advice Ryobi 40v 6ah battery packs; beware of two different sizes

    For hand held tools (string trimmers for example) there wouldn't be a size problem. I seems that Ryobi revamped their mower lineup this year. The older model(s) were discontinued.

    Buying Advice Ryobi 40v 6ah battery packs; beware of two different sizes

    I called Ryobi after I bought this pack and three different people told me this pack "should" fit. My reply was "should" or "will" fit? Big difference. The last one I talk to was someone (whom I conversed with last year on a different subject) basically said the same thing. They do not have...

    Buying Advice Ryobi 40v 6ah battery packs; beware of two different sizes

    Ryobi came out with a 6ah 40v battery pack last year. This year they introduced a 7.5ah pack which is physical larger than their standard 4 & 5ah packs. Enough so, as far as I can tell it will not fit into their older mowers due to it's height and the sloped front of the battery compartment...

    Feedback on the new wave of battery mowers

    One is 'green', the other is not. Just like coal, neither are environmental friendly. Never was! (n) AFA battery powered tools, no, lawnmowers for contractors or 2nd ring suburbanites that have football field lawns, gas is the only practical option, at least for now. BUT, at least with Ryobi (I...

    Ryobi RM480E 38" riding mower won't move!

    The 1st question is have you contacted Ryobi?? I have three of their products and have talked to customer support more than once (for various reasons other than problems) and found they are above average to deal with. That also depends on whom you speak to (like any place else). Do you hear...

    Cordless Lawn Mower & battery pack comparision charts

    You can also include Panasonic, Samsung & Sanyo & Sony to that list of good cells. At least the no-name pack had cells with some kind of name on them. Vanon does even have a website (believe it or not). Thou it doesn't mean it's the same company.

    Cordless Lawn Mower & battery pack comparision charts

    Correct on both; I believe that is Ego's only brushless & steel deck version and is their most expensive (or close to it) model. They are one of the very few importers that aren't all brushless. At those prices, it makes them overpriced (and overrated) alone with the excessive use of 'plastic'...

    Cordless Lawn Mower & battery pack comparision charts

    Background; Coming from a 23 year old Black & Decker CMM1200 Lead-Acid (Gel Cell) battery powered mower, I started looking for a replacement a year ago. I never had any intention of even remotely considered a gas powered mower. This mower has seen 5 battery changes, 3 blade changes and 3 wheel...
