I missed this sale last year and was waiting for it to come back around. According to last year's post it lasts about an hour on a battery.

Thanks OP. I have the 18V version of this and it works great! Can only imagine how good the 40V version is!

I bought the 40V last year. I love it. I'll never go back to a gas lawnmower (unless I buy a property with a larger lawn.)

I bought an extra 40V battery, but I didn't need to. I get approx. 1.5 lawn cuts front and back out of one charge. I don't have a huge lawn, but it's not small either!

If you hate messing with gas and oil, grab one of these, you'll be glad you did. If you have a gas lawnmower you can easily sell it for $80-100!

brushless = more power than regular? does it make the battery last longer or something?

This seems to be HD's response to Lowe's 40V + Line-trimmer + 2nd battery bundle.

The difference seems to be HD does not include the line-trimmer, only has 1 battery but it has higher mAh (5mAh) and has a wider cutting deck (20" vs 16")
Lowe's package includes the line trimmer and 2 batteries (2mAh + 4mAh).

I don't need any of these included items ,but those of you who are interested have some debating to do. I'll grab my popcorn and follow these 2 threads to see what you folks say.

I have this mower. Works great, and runs very quiet. Highly recommended!
With only the 5mAh battery, you may run out of juice if you have a large lawn with long grass.
I bought a 40V Ryobi trimmer that came with a free 2mAh battery last year. This solved my battery problems.

I have the same trimmer, i think it's the 2.6Ah one that you can add attachments to, right?

So that battery will work with this mower? My B&D is 7 years old now and the battery is not replaceable.. stupid thing.

Doesnt matter, every…
When my gas mower dies, Ill be doing this. Now that I moved back into the city, Ive lost two riding mower and have my gas push. Since my yard is waaaaaaaaaaaaaaay smaller now, my gas push is only left.

Be nice to not worry about oil and gas eventually. Winter tune ups and the noise

I was debating between these two.

I went for the ryobi one because of the wider cutter mainly. I also trust ryobi to keep the batteries available longer.

That said I’ve spent more money because I needed a trimmer too. So I got a ryobi trimmer with a 4ah battery. So I end up with extra battery power if I need it.

The battery is not 5 mAh but is 5 Ah = 5000 mAh

Yes, you're right.. I think it was a 2.6Ah as well. Yup, it works great with the mower.

Yes! This battery powers a mower, not a cell phone, oops.

I bought this 20" Ryobi 40V last year to replace a Ryobi 16" 40V mower that was 2 years old. I was much happier with the 20" vs 16" for the wider cutting swath. The large capacity single battery is great and saves me a swap out. The Lowe's package being described sounds like my old Ryobi 16" with 2 smaller capacity batteries. For a larger lawn, go with the Ryobi 20". For a smaller yard take the Kobalt 16". I think a lot of these deals are as much about getting you into a battery based ecosystem, so consider what other devices you might want to get in the future that would share the batteries that you are buying. I'm heavy into Ryobi and B&D so I generally gravitate toward their offerings. Either way, I am definitely not missing all of my old 2-stroke and 4-stroke toys!

Also note that while it's not cheap ($41) they do sell OEM replacement blades: https://www.homedepot.ca/product/ryobi- ... 1001087155

You may be able to replace it with this cheaper one ($20) but it's not a direct replacement: https://www.homedepot.ca/product/ryobi- ... 1001051216
