Was waiting for this. Picked up 4 Lowes gift cards about a month ago via Samsung pay, which brought the final price down to $410. 2 amp 80V battery also on sale for $99.

Can any one comment about their experience with this mower? I'm looking to buy a mower, but there are a lot of options.

I have this exact mower. Purchased it about 2 months back. Absolutely love it. Two smaller batteries (2.5A) with super fast charger is one of the best design decision Kobalt made as you practically never run out of the power. While using one battery, another is in charging! I also purchased 80-volt blower as it's worth investing into this Kobalt 80-volt system considering its most powerful cordless system and 5yr easy Lowes warranty. Before I purchased this system, I deeply researched and checked out Ego 56v system and Ryobi 40volt systems. I am now watching for string trimmer deal on this same Kobalt 80-volt. Everything is high quality and well built on this system- Self propelled mower/ Leaf blower

I highly recommend you go for it!

I've had the push mower for two years. It works pretty well, almost as good as a gas powered. I ended up getting a Greenworks and taking the Kobalt to use at my Mom's house. I went with the Greenworks, who manufacturers the Kobalt and is essentially the same, after a recent sale on Amazon. The Greenworks line has more tools available and the larger battery available. I hate having to switch batteries once or twice while mowing. With the larger battery, I don't normally have to change batteries. I know the batteries and/or tools can be modified. I did that to the trimmer I have, but with three to five year warranties, I did not want to modify a $400 mower or $200 battery.

I would have rather had Amex extended warranty than the little discount from the GCs...especially on something like this.

Used a 10% code from the forums on here, a cash back site for an extra 1% cash back, and the citi double cash card since the Lowe's advantage card can't be stacked with the 10% code.

I had to switch between my 2 local stores to see the cheaper price, one had it for $550, the other for $500.

Thanks for the post! I've had my eye on this mower as I've been researching electric mowers pretty extensively the past week and didn't want to spend as much as the Ego costs.

If you're out of or close to out of warranty, what's there to lose?

Also, I've read you can use the battery pack and mod the dummy battery instead of the tool or the real battery

FYI to those who bought recently. 7/16-17 there's an extra 10% off being applied that stacks with the 10%off coupon. My total was just a bit over $400 pre tax. May want to get adjustments if you bought in the past few days

The warranties on the tools are 4 years for Greenworks and 5 years for Kobalt, so I have 3 to 4 years left.

I thought gw warranty was 3 years? edit: I was mistaken. battery is 2 year, tool is 4. so you're in the time frame where you can start thinking of modding the batteries

That aside, take a look at the battery pack. it has a dummy battery and fits into the battery compartment of the tool. can be had around 50-70 (or less depending on ebay promotions). it has a harness to hold the battery (modify that piece to accept either ) and then a cable with the dummy battery on the other end (mod this part too to fit either) and just use this to power any of your tools

i'm not fully sure of the logistics of it, but I'm guessing you dont need to actually wear this on your back to make use of it ...

worse case is you don't make use of the backpack part and just strap the working pieces to the tool or sling it on your shoulder

I purchased the pusher version and was able to stack the 10% plus 4% CB which came out to $326.62 including VA tax.

Just got it home from picking it up and started charging the batteries,reading manuals, etc - in looking at it closer, I think they screwed up and gave me the self-propelled version?
