All good info..

I've been tempted by this one. It seems like the price has dropped a bit since they were introduced, though it's still spendy compared to at least the entry-level gas riders.

I think the biggest thing that has held me back is the lack of front accessory attachments. If I could get a mini snowplow kit for it, I'd be a lot more interested.

Ryobi design good gear, comfortable to use.
If the factory they contracted the manufacturing to did a good job , generally they work well.
Down side is they are designed not to be able to be repaired, lots of plastic tabs that snap off.
Thus they are considered as disposable products unable to be repaired .
For that reason alone I would be very wary of a ride on bearing the Ryobi name.

From memory the Ryobi brand changed hands a while ago.
I break down about 100 Ryobi line trimmers for scrap metal & plastic every year
