$400 off on Ryobi 48111 Riding Lawnmower with 100 Ah Battery good for 2.5 hours or roughly 2 acre of lawn plot. Need to figure out if there is snowblower attachment for this thing. It will be perfect if I can attach snow blower (not just plow) for Upstate NY winters.

I have the ryobi 42" zero turn electric. Great mower, bought it last year. Our property is hilly, so i really need more knobby tires to grip the ground better, about 2 acres of lawn. Love how quiet it is.

Just curious why Zero Turn instead of this one ? Any specific advantage apart from getting thru things more easily. I could not find snow blower kit for this one, although it has snow plow - but plow is not as effective as snow blower for us.

We went with the zero turn, as it sits lower, making it a bit more stable on our sloped ground. Someone posted it needs to stay plugged in 24/7, which is not the case, at least with ours. Im not sure why they said that

Edited to add, can you post a link to the snow plow attachment, we've been thinking of getting one.

I've seen it on yourtube viedos about snow plow kit - have not seen on homedepot website yet. Where do you live ? I'm in upstate NY and my yard is only half acer so not too big, but at the same time we have few big maple trees and it makes mess during fall.

But there is bagging as well as dethacher on homedepot

I can't imagine there's a snowblower attachment for this. The frame looks like a go-cart (check out the underneath photos on HD) and is clearly not meant for substantial weight. There is a snowplow/blade. (check out the Ryobi site below)

This does not have a PTO - the drive and deck are powered by separate motors, meaning if there were a snowplow, it would also have its own motor and power connection, but I don't see that anywhere in the manual or parts DWGs. (found here [ryobitools.com]). Also, the deck height adjustment appears to be a manual lever which is common for smaller riders as the decks aren't that heavy, but for a snowblower you'd need hydraulic (or otherwise) deck lifter as that's typically how the snowblower is also raised/lowered, unless a separate SB attachment would have these features with some sort of remote.

Even Lowes-grade JD mowers are not recommended to accept snowblowers - some units *can* physically take a JD snowblower attachment but they aren't anywhere near ideal for that application.

Checking the google it seems, for example, that the Troy Bilt line of tractors model "Super Bronco" can accept this [homedepot.com]~ $1200 42 in snowblower attachment. The cheapest one ("Super Bronco") I can find @ HD is $1600, making the total package around $2800. Ironically not that much more expensive than this.

I also wonder how the batteries on the Ryobi would like running in winter.

[I have a JDX530 w/ 54" snowblower here in CT which is why I am showing interest.]

that is interesting combo, but what about maintenance part ? With electric - there would be absolutely no maintenance apart from blow off with blower all the grass clippings. Or am I missing something here ?

A zero turn is never more stable on a hill than a rear engine rider or lawn tractor by design as you cannot steer if even one rear wheel looses grip. In general zero turns are u safe on hills and only for use on flat terrain.

How hilly is your yard? I have a slope of around 11 to 13 degree and I have to use those farm type tires with deep teeth. If the battery powered mower can handle the slope, it will be my next mower.

There hasn't been a ryobi tool I want more than this (or the zero turn). I just can't justify it on my 100x100 property- but dammit do I want it!!
