I have the 2022SP Steel Deck mower and out of over $2000 worth of EGO equipment, so far the mower has been the biggest disappointment. Purchased it April 2018 and by fall, the mower just quit working so it didn't even last 1 season. Just out of the blue, it flashed an orange LED quickly as if it was overloaded (which it was not) and then decided to never work from that point on.

I called up their customer service which pretty much walked me through troubleshooting steps I had already done. I was told to let the mower sit "discharged" to see if it would resolve itself and to call back if it didn't. Of course it never did and because of how I wasn't looking forward to dealing with their CS, that got put on hold especially since winter was right around the corner.

My procrastination is so bad that I finally tried a few weeks ago to resolve this issue. I thought the wait time was bad before this pandemic, but I waited on the line for 2 hrs and I never got through or got a call back. I had to wait until the next day and call back the moment they opened.

The CS rep while not rude in any way just lacked any customer service skill. Basically after all that wait and hassle, I find out that all I had to do was take it into a local Home Depot. Had I known that I wouldn't have wasted my time on the phone with them.

When you go to Home Depot, they charge you $19 to diagnose your equipment and it is reimbursed if the service is done under warranty. It's been a few weeks now and supposedly the part needed to fix it is on order. I've read of other horror stories where it took longer than 6-8 weeks to get their mower back, but I'll have to wait and see.

For the most part I am happy with their tools, but they need to improve their customer service and repair process. I spent more than $800 on my mower and somehow this cheap feeling Ryobi that a family member is letting me use has been working without issue and has gotten more use. Kinda sad considering the Ryobi is less than half the cost of mine.

Sorry for the long rant, just wanted to give a heads up of what you might be dealing with when your mower goes bad.
Now coming into my 3rd year with my Ego, it is a mostly love, with a little hate mixed in.

The hate part is when the mower leaves these little ridges of partially cut gtass randomly through the cut. I read all the suggestions with keeping the blade sharp and even getting a different blade and it still happens, and I only mow dry.

Otherwise I do not in any way miss the headache of a gas mower, and this comes from someone that rebuilt engines, transmissions, etc...the modern small engine is so filled with plastic, too much of a headache.
If you don't care about runtime, the best is the LM2135SP (1x7.5ah battery), that's their newest model. That's the one I bought personally, I was trying to decide between that one and the dual battery LM2142SP (2x5 ah batteries) for the same price. Here are my Pros and cons:
Pros:

Charging 1 large battery is more convenient than charging 2 slightly smaller batteries since there's only 1 charger.
The LM2135SP comes with the latest battery with the 5 bar fuel gauge. They angled the battery towards you so you can always see how much battery is left. Their older mowers come with the battery that doesn't have the battery gauge and only warns you when the battery is about to die.
I like the self-propelled controls on the LM2135SP, you can operate the control with either hand or both hands. The LM2142SP only has the control on one side
The LM2135SP comes with the dual blade design which is superior. And actually, in the box are 3 blades (but only 2 can be used at once). The extra blade is for improved mulching and bagging performance. I've yet to have this mower bog down on me even through thick/long grass. Though I almost never mow wet/moist grass.


Cons:
Battery life, if you have a huge lawn then you might need the LM2142SP. My LM2135SP ends up with about 1 bar (20% battery) when mowing my 0.3 acre property which takes me about 45 min at nearly full self-propelled speed. It's enough run time for me, but may not be enough for others. Note that I am using the included tri-cut blade which apparently decreases run time by about 10-15%.

if anyone has questions about the LM2135SP, feel free to let ask.

It shows available for delivery at my location, so it might be location dependent.

I've had the single-battery push version of this mower for 5 years. Zero problems. Zero maintenance. Still,t would be nice to have this version with twice the battery and self-propelled. To upgrade, or not to upgrade, that is the question.

I got a 2142 a month ago and have used it twice. I had a push single battery mower and it bogged down badly in deeper grass or even corners.Other than that, it was pleasure to use.
The cut is no better, except when it doesn't bog down where the first one would have, then it is much better. It is heavier and more difficult to get around corners. On the whole I guess I am happy with it, but wish it handled corners better.
I do wonder about the new one with the double blade. Can that blade be used on this?

I picked up the leaf blower the other day that came with a 2.5Ah battery. Any idea how much time that battery would give me with the 2100? Lawn is just big enough where using a trimmer is a hassle so want something more powerful.

I keep hearing and reading wonderful things about the new dual-blade model. Even though the double battery model gets better runtime, I'm considering the dual-blade instead. Not sure if it can be used on the single blade models, though.

I need the dual blade for better mulching. Im on a quarter acre with 5 mature trees. The mulching of single blade on my 21in push Ego just isn't enough.

After watching the reviews on YouTube seems like the new models with dual blades are the only way to go. They addressed and improved upon the issues that these models have like cutting grass that is wet.

I'm in the same boat, 4 years or so with no problems and zero maintenance. Upgrade time? Dual batteries would be nice...

I have the single battery self propelled old nonbrushless motor. The 2.5V can easily do 15mins runtime nonpropelled, to finish the job

I also came to the same conclusion and seeing a bunch of reviews. Seems like they have made a number of improvements overall. Right now its about $150 more for a bare tool version of the new model. I hope they have some specials on that one soon. All this social distancing means I may have to start mowing my own lawn.

I have an older version and it is a boss. Can't imagine how good these new ones are.
