I have an EGO mower that I got in 2016 (similar to this). Now (in 2020) the 7.5ah battery is significantly less performant (I need three charges to finish 1/3 acre). Now, any battery looses capacity over time, but for $350 dollar battery to be significantly less powerful in 4 years is becoming a very pricey proposition. So consider where you want to be in 4 years and that you'll need a new battery sooner than you would think.

I like EGO equipment, but the battery replacement cost/value is making me consider another brand. Ryobi self propelled is considerably cheaper and batteries are SIGNIFICANTLY cheaper. I can get a mower and a 6ah battery for the cost of one EGO battery replacement. Now, yes, it's possible I just don't care enough about the cut quality. I am not big into gardening, so I just want the lawn to look presentable and nice, and I am not any kind of pro. It's possible the 20" ryobi is inferior to this EGO or TORO, but the long term battery cost... makes me question if I want to stay with EGO. If the battery lasted 6-7 years, I would be ok, but 3-4 years... For $350 a pop.... I am not sure.
The battery by itself is $349 which is ridiculous but is what it is.
This is last years model if that matters to you.
Some days I wish my Husky mower would die so I could get this but it keeps on starting on one pull so...
This model was not $599 a couple of weeks ago. It was $499. I evaluated it and Toro three weeks ago and returned the Ego due to uneven cut which aligns with Consumer Report review as well. Toro cuts more evenly than the Ego.

>>This is last years model if that matters to you.<<

Sure is, and there have been a LOT of changes, this is an entirely different machine. Among other things, the new model has the two-blade mulching system... my understanding is that it actually ships with 2 installed and one other included, you can change that one to set it up for how you use it.

>>It was $599 a few weeks ago.<<

I might be wrong, but I really don't think so. AFAIK, THIS model was introduced at $500. I think this is a $30 off sale price, not $130 off. IMHO it probably should be.

The local HD briefly had THIS year's model on the shelf with, I think, a $450 or $460 sale price. Caused some sudden interest but it was just a mistake, it didn't ring up for that, and they didn't honor it. They show on-line as having this year's model in stock but they don't put it out (except that once), apparently they want to sell these first. They even had a lady pushing HARD to persuade anyone that looked at EGO to go with Ryobi instead... I think if I were EGO I'd be a bit annoyed at that, I know I would be, I think HD is one of only two authorized brick-and-mortar dealers.

I have one, it cuts good enough if you have the blade sharp but it doesn't bag very well. Very little lift. When the bag is 1/4 full it starts to back up into the blade deck. I have leaves on my lawn and it fails to even pick them up...

How thick does the grass have to be until it can't handle cutting it?

Yeah, this wasn't $599, the OP misunderstood. This is the last year model as others noted. Still a good mower, but I bought the current gen and it's outstanding, even if $599 was tough to part with. Thankfully made a decent part of it back selling our old mower.

This is the current model, still $599 on sale.

I can't speak for this model, so take this opinion for what it's worth...but I picked up the new dual-blade version and I'm glad I did. I like the mower, but it seems like it's just enough - so I'm a little skeptical that the single blade version would have left me satisfied with the results.

A note on battery and whatnot: I have about half an acre, and I mow with the deck set to 3 (about halfway). Without using the self propelled feature, I can easily mow the full yard without running out of juice. And believe me, this thing is EASY to use without the propulsion. It's light as all heck and pushes easily. I'll admit that it feels a little cheap, but maybe that's just because my yard is insanely bumpy and it gets jostled around so much.

Some good info and subjective experience in the thread, thanks to all who posted their experience.

Although my mower still runs (engine is fine), the deck is all rusted through (Just have a damp lawn, no I don't mow in the morning when it's wet), and one side of the bars is broken (now braced with a length of wood and duck tape). Lasted 15+ years, though and I kept the engine in good shape, but getting a replacement deck/handles was 50%+ a new mower...soo....

Based on my neighbor's experience and wanting a quieter, lighter, non-rusting, easy to fold up and tuck away mower, this fit the bill for me.

I've only mowed once with it, so my quite minimal experience was good - enough charge to get through my lawn (~.25acre). I got the model that came with three blades, and promptly switched out one of the blades for the mulching blade - a nice fine cut, but the blade is brand new.

Guess I'll see what I think after the season.......

Agreed that cost to own is going to be more expensive than gas. Ego's business model is like inkjet printers; profit is in the battery/ink. The benefit you get for the higher cost to own is the convenience of not having to handle gasoline, maintain the engine, fumes etc.

I have the self propelled but I believe all the newer models over the last few years have variable speed motors so the blade speeds up in heavy thick grass. My first gen would bog down in thick grass but my new one has no problem even in the thickest grass I run it through.

Have you contacted them about it? I don't know if they have a % capacity warranty or not but for the price of a 7.5Ah battery it may be worth taking it in getting it checked out as your 5 year warranty period is coming up (actually just read it was 3 yrs not 5 on the battery, whoops) it sounds like. I've only got some 2.5Ah batteries and other than one failing very early on (which they quickly sent a replacement for) they seem to have similar capacity to what they did when they were new. Or at least not enough that I notice a difference but I typically use them in less battery intensive devices (blower, trimmer, hedger, etc.).

Oh, and I never really leave mine fully charged or on empty. We all know that storing them full or empty isn't good for them. If I do happen to fully charge it I'll put one in the blower and do a quick clean up around the house just to knock it down to say 90% or something. I've got the old "dumb" status lights so it's either green or red. Would be nice to have some % remaining indicator like the newer ones have.

This LM2102SP was $499 and it is just $30 off. It is the Gen 2 from last year. The $599 one is the LM2135SP from this year with double blade.
