Ridgid NXT 1625 CFM Air Mover


The Ridgid NXT 1625 CFM Air Mower is a very popular model among home owners. It’s one of the most affordable models in its class. With its price tag, it can’t compete with other high-end models like Ridgid Am2400 or Ridgid Am2500. However, it is still cheaper than some of the entry level models.

It has been designed to provide excellent performance at a reasonable cost. It features a 2 HP motor which provides smooth running operation and it is equipped with an automatic choke system that reduces noise levels during operation. A low-maintenance design makes maintenance easy and the unit doesn’t require regular oiling or cleaning.

It is very easy to start and stop using the on/off switch, which is located on the handle. It drives forward with ease since the heavy duty wheels (front and back) are designed to handle inclines up to 15 degrees. The handle folds over for easy storage. The cutting height can be adjusted from 1 1/2″ to 3 1/2″ in 1/2″ increments.

The cutting deck is made of steel and is 16″ wide. A metal blade guard helps protect you by keeping fingers away from the cutting edge. A built in wheel adjustment lever makes it easy to change the cutting height. The metal deck and guard are rust resistant.

The overall weight is only 40lbs.

An optional bagging attachment can be purchased separately. It attaches easily and makes clean-up a breeze.

Optional 60 gallon (227 L) vertical auger allows you to clear large amounts of grass with one or more passes.

Optional Snow Plow Attachment:

Allows you to easily clear snow banks and push snow to the side of the driveway or sidewalk. The plow attaches directly to your Ridgid Air Mower and provides quick control of snow removal operations without the need for a shovel or heavy lifting. Part #AM3300. It is also very useful for plowing snow in areas where a shovel cannot be used such as walkways, steps and restricted areas.

The power capacity of this unit is 2.5 peak HP which should be able to handle light to medium workloads such as residential lawn mowing. The cutting width is 16 inches and the cutting height can be adjusted from 1 1/2 to 3 1/2 inches in 1/2 inch increments.

The included charger takes about 30 minutes to recharge the high capacity batteries. A full charge will allow you to mow up to 1/3 of an acre on a single charge. It is important to note that the included battery charger will not charge the optional Lithium battery pack. If you want to use the batteries with the included charger, you must use the larger size high capacity 36 volt batteries.

The 2 year limited warranty covers defects in materials and workmanship. This does not cover normal wear and tear or damage caused by lack of maintenance, abuse, misuse or use on unreasonable terrain.
