I recently ordered a Ryobi riding lawn mower. Living off the grid and relying exclusively on solar panels for power, I was especially intrigued by a mower that could be off the grid as well. Any reduction in trips to the gas station is a good thing in my book 😉 For those that are inquisitive like me, here are some of the battery specs: 48V battery system [(4) x 12V batteries in series = 48V] AGM batteries ~2 hours or
