I had an electric SP Ryobi mower for over 20 years -- loved it, limped it along for years, but it finally fell apart and died.  I've been looking for a replacement for several years, and it sounds like the 21" SP is as solid and well-designed as my trusty old Ryobi.  Yay!

But:  the 7.5Ah battery costs about $350 !?!?  Eeeyowch!!  What is the expected lifespan?  If it's rated for e.g. 200 charge cycles, that would last me upwards of 10 years and I'd be satisfied with that.  If it lasts 4-5 years, not as happy.  Is the 3-year battery warranty pro-rated?

Just one quick reminder to chime in here as well. The batteries and chargers are covered by a 3 year warranty so you can, at least, rest easy knowing you're covered for 3 years without issue as long as you purchased from any of our authorized retailers.  Make sure you register all of your tools/batteries/chargers and keep a copy of your receipt.  We'll even store the receipt in your account for you to help!
