Many users liked how the Ryobi RY48110, also known as the Ryobi RM480e, performed under normal conditions. It runs very quiet and is easy to handle on even ground. Its electric engine is not only environment-friendly but packs enough power to get the job done. On the other hand, several users complained about how uncomfortable riding can get when the terrain gets rough and how its accelerator needed getting used to. There’s also one user’s complaint of its susceptibility to short because of it being battery operated. This mower will require good storage and battery care to keep it in the best running condition.

When not in use, is it advisable to keep the mower connected to the charger?
Yes, it is recommended to keep the mower continually charged when not in use.
How often should tires be checked for air pressure and what is the required pressure for each tire?
20 psi is the recommended tire pressure. It is best to check tire pressure before using the mower.
What causes the blades to stop turning during mowing?
First check the mower’s battery level indicator. The mower will turn off its deck motor to save battery to give you time to drive back to the charging location. Head back and immediately charge the batteries. If the battery level is good, slow the mower’s acceleration and raise the cutting deck. Load applications to the mower can cause the deck motor to stop.
Why does the mower sometime accelerate when going downhill?
For safety when going down a slope, the Ryobi RY48110 automatically limits its speed which can cause speed fluctuations.
Is it normal that the mower makes a beeping sound when driving the mower in reverse?
Yes, the beeping sound is to alert anyone of the mower’s location.
How do I bring the mower to completely stop during use?
Press the brake pedal located on the left side to completely stop the mower. Unlike hydrostatic drive mowers, releasing the accelerator will not cause the mower to stop.
Why is there a beeping sound when I leave the mower’s seat?
The mower will make a beeping sound when the key is left on the ON position or the parking breaks are not engaged. Do not forget to remove the key when the mower is not in use.
Can I use a garden hose to clean the mower deck?
Use an air compressor or blower to clean the deck. Do not use a garden hose and water. You can purchase a high lower air blower here.
