Ryobi OLM1833H ONE+ Cordless Lawn Mower Review
I’ve used a Ryobi lawn mower for many years, I have had two in my time as a professional gardener, so even though they are built primarily for domestic use, being used at the most probably once a week in the spring and summer months, I have used mine between three and five times per day from March through to October and several times a week in November and December. This proves to me how robust and reliable the Ryobi OLM1833H ONE+ Cordless Lawn Mower really is.

The Ryobi Cordless Mower is very easy to assemble.
It is a great mower and cuts as well as the petrol ones I have previously used, on both dry or wet grass.
As it is so lightweight, with handles that fold down easily and a collapsible grass box, I can get it in and out of my work vehicle with no trouble at all.
You may think that this is not relevant to someone using it only for their own lawns but if you have limited storage space it’s a good point to know.
The low weight of it also means that it is much easier to maintain and manoeuvre.
It can be used as a mulching lawn mower too which means that at the times of year when your lawn needs a feed, it is easier to do so as the mulched grass left on the lawn will feed it more than adequately. Just remember to then remove the mulching plug for subsequent cuts in order to for grass to be collected in the grass box.
The batteries are easy to change.

It is good to know that Ryobi has the mower line beside the hand tools. My father has this gas push mower and that thing is loud and takes a lot of space in his garage. You mentioned that it’s very durable how about the battery life? Does it need to be charged every use? My father lawn is about 2,000 square feet. Thanks!
Yes the gas mowers are very noisy
The battery life is fairly long on the Ryobi, it does depend on the length of grass being cut and whether the lawn is flat ground or inclined etc but 2,000 sq ft would probably use just under half the battery power, so your dad could do the lawn twice before having to recharge

Hello and thank you for reading the Ryobi review, I am happy that you found it useful. I wouldn’t be without my Ryobi tool
Hi Louise, you are so right, I am one of those people who can’t decide when it comes to purchasing a product and that is why your review is very helpful, husband and I have been looking around because I think its time we get another lawnmower, as our old one has decided to say goodbye.
And so I was intrusted in doing research on the best cordless lawnmower, and we want something lightweight as well.
as easy to use. I think the Ryobi OLM1833 Lawn Mower is just what we need. I like its features, as you mentioned in the review, it’s easy to use, easy to charge and of course, husband and I are very environmentally conscious so we want something that is environmentally friendly.
Another concern that we have and we always have when we are purchasing gardening tools, is the storage, so you can imagine my delight when you mentioned easy storage.
Anyway, thank you for this review, super helpful indeed.
Thank you so much for your thoughts and comments.
It is often the case that we need these tools but have limited storage so I too always look at that aspect when reviewing products. The Ryobi OLM1833, has handles that easily fold which saves space and the whole unit is compact.
I have moved on to cordless garden tools for environmental reasons and ease of use.
I am glad to be of help in your lawn mower decision.
