All John Deere battery mowers have removable batteries that recharge very quickly. The R43BV has a powerhead and two battery slots for extra-long performance.
The handlebar can be height adjusted for improved grip comfort and grabbed in multiple ways to reduce upper body fatigue. Adjust the speed and check your battery status from the display, or engage eco mode for additional power savings.
The mower deck on the R43BV comes with a 15-year warranty* for extra peace of mind. It’s made of die-cast aluminium, which is lighter than steel and won’t rust.
The 36-V powerhead is capable of carrying two batteries and switches automatically to the second battery when the first one is empty. For additional ease of use, there is a spring-loaded battery release system.
Lithium-ion batteries offer full power from the start. The two batteries used on the R43BV offer 4 amp-hr and the batteries used on the R47BV offer 6 amp-hr, which allows sufficient mowing time.
The ground coverage in normal mowing conditions is about 500 m² (5382 sq ft) with the R43BV and 700 m² (7535 sq ft) with the R47BV.
The fast charger in base provides a short recharging time: approximately 1 hour and 46 minutes for the 4-amp-hr batteries and 2 hours and 20 minutes for the 6-amp-hr batteries.
Variable speed provides a range of speeds from 2 to 4 km/h (1.2 to 2.5 mph) that suit both tough and easy-to-handle conditions. The speed can be conveniently changed at the handlebar to adapt quickly and easily to all mowing conditions.
In residential applications, aluminum decks come with a 15-year warranty (refer to the branch’s warranty manual).
The durable and attractive rear-discharge bag makes grass collection easy.
Compared to a plastic bag, the textile bagger does not open when going up steps (e.g., between a patio and garden). The rear of the bag will be pushed up by contacting ground, but the flexible textile bag remains on the mower. A plastic bag would be completely pushed up at the rear, resulting in grass dumping.
Controlling the machine is easy thanks to the intuitive design created purposely for the operator:
