Can anyone provide specific advice on this with regard to a lawnmower? I'm wondering:

(1) Does using, for example, 50% of the battery and recharging repeatedly affect battery life? Is it best to...

Interesting points, John. A universal platform would be wonderful. A challenge for the industries is that both the purchase price and cost to recharge battery-operated tools and cars need to be...

Actually I have a Husqvarna 223L that is very reliable but yes, it would be nice to replace it with an EGO some day. The snowblower will have to be the priority though.

Update on EGO Power+ LM2101 battery mower: suction

I tried to pick up large quantities of loose debris in the bag after dethatching and found that this mower picked up 50%-70% of the thatch. A significant amount, but it will definitely not leave the...

I read an interview with a battery lawnmower manufacturer (I can't remember which one) who said their mower had been tested to last 450 hours. If you mow 2 hours a week for 20 weeks (May-September),...

I noticed this also---once you've corrected a landscaping problem with, say, a high-wheeled mower trimmer, you won't need that machine again for awhile. However, when my lawnmower died on Friday I...

Dick, I'm so sorry, I actually didn't see this post until just now. I put the lawnmower at the end of my driveway at 10 pm on Friday. It was gone when I got up at 6:00 a.m. I would gladly have given...

Isn't a main problem that in fact battery mowers don't last 10-15 years, whereas a good gas mower does last that long?

Also, I do expect to have to upgrade my battery if I buy a snowblower. What...

I agree about the "luxe" feeling. It's the combination of no vibrations, extreme quiet, and the sharp blade. Very smooth operation. It's not an aggressive experience like trying to push a hot, noisy,...

First impression of the EGO Power+ LM2101 battery mower

https://www.amazon.com/EGO-Power-LM2101-Lithium-ion-Cordless/dp/B08GPZ1XLJ

Honestly I was stunned when I started it up and began mowing. It's much quieter than a vacuum cleaner. You could listen...

Very helpful information, thank you very much, Flying Scot. I got up at the crack o' dawn today and got the EGO LM2101 for $399. Online it shows out of stock but as of 8 a.m. there was one more left....

Correct, to use the warranty you first have to get permission from EGO. Then you take the machine to Lowes and they handle the repair.

I don't already have a platform. Lowes is an authorized EGO service center. You take the mower to them and they send it out for repair. I also considered that EGO has a single-stage snowblower with...

I sure wish the average cost of gas over the last 20 years were relevant, but I fear it's not. Too many things have changed to think that we will go back to cheap gas. Putin's stranglehold on the...

Woops, I think you're right. Let me recalculate that. Tank holds 1.6 qts. I use about 2 tanks a week = 3.2 qts x 4 = 12.8 qts/month x 5 months = 64 qts = 16 gallons x $5/gal =$80 a year x 5 years =...

OK, that was interesting. It turns out that the blade is severely bent. I can just imagine what that force did to the motor. The motor wouldn't start without the blade. End of a 19-year relationship....

John, I'm guessing that given the age of this mower, it's not worth getting it repaired. What do you think?

Update: I am not making this up

I felt so motivated by my last post that I went out to mow some more. I hit the stub of a 4" tree and the motor stopped with a loud clang. Some smoke came out of the carburater. I checked the...

Thank you for that feedback. I have one acre of lawn but I'm happy with a battery that lasts 45 to 60 minutes, like the EGO, because I don't care to mow longer than that anyhow. Plus, a gas mower...

I think FLL was referring to the overall quality of the vegetation and terrain, not the height of the cut. I think a reel mower could work on a small, flat lawn that gets mowed regularly---although...
