If you're looking for lawn mower deals on high-performance riding lawn mowers without high-end price tags, Home Depot has the deal for you: it's offering a massive 42% off this brushless 54-inch Ryobi ride-on, bringing the price down from $5,999 to $3,499 — that's a saving of $2,500.

This Ryobi riding lawn mower deal offers the best of both worlds. Because it's electric, it doesn't have the smell, smoke, environmental downsides, or maintenance requirements of a gas-powered mower — and because it's a high-powered electric model, it doesn't have the compromises of smaller models. This particular mower is good for 3.5 acres of mowing on a single charge.

There are cheaper options, of course, but this is one of the more serious best riding lawn mowers for serious jobs: it has a 54-inch, 10-gauge heavy-duty steel deck, three precision cut blades, and 12-position manual deck adjustment. It even has cup holders: two of them.

This is a serious price cut on a serious grass cutter: with 42% off, you're saving $2,500 on the usual selling price. As you'd expect from a mower in this price bracket, this is a high-quality mower with serious stamina: you can expect 3.5 acres of mowing before it's time for a recharge.

Ryobi 52-inch 48V riding lawn mower: key features

Let's start with the luxury features first: this ride-on mower has twin cupholders, LED headlights, ergonomic control handles, and a USB charging point. You're worth it. But it also has serious cutting capabilities thanks to its 54-inch, 10-gauge heavy-duty steel deck with 12 position adjustments, slow speed, and slow blade options, a reverse mow setting, and three precision-cut steel blades with an adjustable cutting height of 1.5 to 4.5 inches to make light work of any lawn. 

This particular model isn't designed for bagging, but it does have side discharge and mulching capability.

This is a genuine alternative to a gas-powered mower and is a better option in several respects, not just because it doesn't use gas, but because there are no belts, spark plugs, or filters to worry about. 

The big advantage here is convenience. Simply connect up to a standard 120V outlet when it's time to charge, and when it's ready, you've got superb cutting performance with zero emissions and zero effort.

As you'd expect from Ryobi, this mower is built tough, and it's also backed with two warranties: a one-year warranty on the battery and a three-year warranty on the mower itself.

While Home Depot does appear to have plenty of these mowers in stock — it's currently limiting sales to 96 per customer, which we suspect won't trouble most buyers — this appears to be a manufacturer deal rather than a Home Depot one: the same mower is also available directly from Ryobi for the same price.
