Seems to be out of stock. This one might be a replacement updated model:

They have changed the mowers to accommodate the new 9ah batteries. The older mowers wont be able to use them as the battery is physically quite a bit taller. They are planning a lot of bigger 40v items, like a full sized 2 stage snowblower and need the higher capacity batteries.

For those of you looking for recommendations, it'd really help if you can provide a budget.

For cordless most people will probably recommend Ego products and they would be right to do so, they're very highly rated.

I personally ended up with a 60V GreenWorks unit from Canadian Tire that I'm happy with. If I had a larger yard I probably would have opted for the Ego line but it was tough to justify given the price difference.

I have a Black and Decker battery lawnmower and it does a great job.
Actually this is my second the previous lasted 10 years and it was cheaper to replace it than buy a new battery.
There is also a factory outlet in Mississauga that may have units available.

I guess my budget would be anything under $500 since the Mikita I linked above is $499 right now. My lawn isn't particularly big, but I would still want something that can handle a larger lawn in case one day we move or I have to do someone else's lawn.

Of the Ryobi linked above and the Mikita, is the Mikita worth the extra $100 (I don't need the blower)? I don't like that the Mikita can't fold away like the Ryobi.

I've never looked at Greenworks or Black and Decker before so I wouldn't even know where to start. Actually, I can say that about any mower brand.

Thanks.

I had a Black and Decker before my Ryobi and the Ryobi is 10x better. It's so much more maneuverable and light. The battery lasts so much longer and it folds away easily. It also charges very quickly. Mind you, we are comparing technologies which are 10 years apart, so the newer B&D's may be better than before.

Bought the Ryobi from HomeDepot. The other one I was considering was the Greenworks 17" from Canadian Tire for $50 more which has a 60V battery vs 40V on the Ryobi but has a smaller 17" deck vs 20" on the Ryobi, and that ended up being the deciding factor.
