Trying to decide which electric mower and saw Walamrt has Greenworks Pro MO80L510 80V 21-Inch Self-Propelled Cordless Lawn Mower w/ 5Ah Battery & Rapid Charger for $476.27 Shipping is free. The lower price was last summer on Amazon for 473.75.

Is this a good buy? I like to get Ego 20 steel deck self propelled but the price is 749 vs 470.40.........

https://www.walmart.com/ip/Greenw.../523117746
Seems like Walmart is the only one still have it in stock, not sure if this is to clear out the old inventory for new model. if you know Greenworks going to lauch a new powefull/improvement model, please tell us.

Anyone try both? and which one you keep?

*edit: as of 4/17/18 price dropped to 470.40, lowest than last summer on Amazon!

Deleting my post... this is the self propelled and mine (from costco) is not self propelled.

I recently got the costco version as well. How important the self propelling feature?

Ego : 56v, plastic deck, telescope handle. Regular motor.

Greenworks/kobalt : 80v, steel deck, tilt only handle. brushless motor

In terms of battery power they are similar. The greenworks battery is 80V * 5ah = 400W. The Ego is 56 * 7.5ah = 420W. So the ego has 5% more power in it despite the lower voltage. Keep in mind that the self propelled feature will drain the GW battery further. If you need it then fine, but I have the non-self propelled version of GW and don't mind the weight. It is lighter than a comparable gas mower.
One other thing, if you decide to go electric be prepared to shell out $100-$200 in a couple of years when the original battery wears out.
Personally I wouldn't recommend either if your lawn is much bigger than 1/4 acre. 1/3 acre is pushing it. My 80V has 2x 80v 2ah batteries so these both have a little bit more juice. When a gas mower runs out you just fill it up again and keep going. When a battery dies it will take an hour or so to charge. Very annoying when you just want to finish off that last strip of grass. YMMV.

Not battery power. Battery capacity!

Ah, I was wondering what the difference was between Ego's 21" and 20" mower, and the 20" for sure is brushless.

BTW, please people don't worry about brushes wearing out. That was more a thing with small motors. With these lawn mowers they use huge spring loaded brushes, and I can't imagine how many decades you'd have to use one until they actually ground down into nubs. I have a I think 8 year old Black and Decker brushed motor, and I decided to finally do some maintenance on it, and had ordered some brushes from Amazon in advance not wanting to take it apart twice. The brushes were practically new length, with probably another 15 years before I'd need to replace them, so I returned them to Amazon.

Maybe if you had a business where you were using them commercially or something, but I'm in Houston w/ St Augustine grass, which means high power draw and long growing season, and so that seems like a fairly worst case scenario for a push mower home use scenario.

However, brushless do have other advantages, namely that effectively its like having a slightly larger battery as brushless motors are more efficient.

I kindof want the LM2021 20" brushless with the 5.0AH battery, but then again the batteries are the super expensive part, and that's way too heavy to use with their blower and trimmer and other tools. So I'm leaning towards a system with two smaller batteries, and just swap between the front and rear lawn, having one recharging while the other is in use.

After a lifetime of using a self-propelled mower and picking up a push 80v Greenworks the other week, the mower is lightweight enough to be easy to push and maneuver; and it won't spin out if going up an incline or tear up grass when turning.

I was reluctant, but am glad I gave it a try. Also, the 2 amp battery has enough juice to cut the side and top part of back yard (for what seemed to be ~30 minutes) -- which is longer than the brushless blower lasts.

I usually use the blower with the 5 amp battery because the "overdrive" button is a massive drain on the battery. Even an hour to do deck, sidewalk, driveway, and gutters only causes slight fatigue. You'd definitely want the smaller one for the hedge trimmer, weed eater, and pole saw.

I found the ego to VERY bulky to use. The GW with ball bearings just about pushed itself. A 5yo could use it.

Also the ryobi was night and light too.. the neighbors said it looks like a race care.

I got the self-propelled with the Cyber Monday deal. One thing to keep in mind is that you don't have to use the self-propelled feature if you don't want to. I had been using a push mower with no issues and probably won't use the one on GW mower much.

How much you paid on Cyber Monday? Does it cut and mulch well?
