Ryobi has long been at the top of its game with electric tools. This is particularly the case when it comes to cordless OPE for the residential market. Based on our experience, their fleet is among the industry’s most comprehensive, covering a wide range of solutions–especially for lawn care. Take, for instance, the Ryobi CrossCut Push Mower (RY401200). This model landed on our Best Battery-Powered Lawn Mowers list, along with its sibling, the self-propelled RY401150.
Here’s a look at the performance and design features that caught our eye.
Ryobi CrossCut Push Mower Performance Features
The RY401200’s high-efficiency HP brushless motor is the first stop on the tour. Fitted with dual active ports, this motor runs on a 40V (7.5Ah) battery, which provides an estimated 50 minutes of mowing time. Moreover, you can start it with the press of a button.
- Model: Ryobi RY401200
- Brushless motor
- Battery: 40V (7.5Ah)
- Cutting swath: 21 in
- Dual blades
- Cutting height: 1.5-4 in
- 7-position adjustment
- Yard size: ~.50 acres
- Weight: 63.5 lbs
This model’s cutting features also grabbed our attention.
Ryobi equipped this push mower with its CrossCut Multi-Blade System, which operates using 2-blades for enhanced cutting performance or a single blade for longer runtime. No doubt, that kind of flexibility deserves a thumbs-up.
On that note, we should also mention that it provides 3-in-1 mowing functions. So, you can choose between bagging, mulching, or side discharge.
Ryobi CrossCut Push Mower Design
In addition to its performance features, the RY401200’s design makes it a model well-suited for clean, level lawns. Its 21-inch deck is durable, yet lightweight, which is important considering there’s no drive system. (Incidentally, it also carries a lifetime warranty.)
Furthermore, Ryobi kept ease and efficiency in mind. The easy-lift collection bag and one-touch folding handle may be small touches, but they do help reduce hassle. The same goes for the usual cordless advantages of having no gas, oil, or general lawn mower maintenance.
Indeed, this is very much a mow-blow-and-go kind of tool.
Ryobi CrossCut Push Mower Price
The RY401200 retails for $599 and comes with a 5-year limited tool warranty.
