I'm VERY torn whether to pickup a gas or battery mower. I want battery to be better but I'm not at all convinced yet.

To make matters more interesting I moved to an area where electricity is roughly 7.5c a kW (Washington). But I just can't figure out which mower is going to last... These $300-600 mowers I can't imagine having to service the mower regularly AND THEN drop $150-200 on a battery every couple years if it's a pos and every 5 if not.

And THEN even if it's a decent mower the company will still probably go under and stop making batteries for it. ugh
A gas burner will outlive these battery powered gutless mowers by double or triple. I bought a electric last year, pushed it for a few loops around the lawn, boxed it up, returned to WalMart. Lack of power.

Edit: I now use my gas burner at my cabin (formerly at my now sold rental house) and bought a corded Sunjoe and it's a excellent mower with way more power than the battery models. Practically zero maintenance on this and it goes where the electric would bog.

I have an echo 58v mower. I know it's not the same brand but you will definitely want at least 2 batteries if you are getting a battery powered mower.

Not sure if not matters to some but Greenworks is owned by Globe Tools Group which is a Chinese company located here:

Jiangsu Star 65 (3-4)
China Hong Kong Avenue
Changzhou, Jiangsu 213000
China

Regarding eGO...
"EGO is a global brand with offices throughout the world. EGO's U.S. operations include locations in Michigan and Illinois, which are dedicated to research and development, testing, customer support and marketing of EGO products. The manufacturing of EGO products is currently done in China."

I own this mower and had to mow 6000 sqft lawn 5 inches tall (heavy spring rains) yesterday evening. I bagged the clippings and was able to complete only half the yard, 10 days ago I was able to mow the whole yard without bagging the clippings with still half the battery left.

If you already have other Greenworks 60V tools with an extra battery this is a good mower. It is hard to find good deals on 60V tools as it is Lowe's Exclusive

Picked this up for 171 from Lowes last summer, oddly under a different model number but it looks exactly the same. Link here: https://www.lowes.com/pd/Greenwor...1000332225

Handles my 2/3 acre lawn just fine. Has never bogged down on me, even when i have let the grass go a little longer than i should.

My only concern is that i never, ever see deals on the batteries or even other devices using these batteries.

There's no way a battery mower is cheaper to own than a gas mower. I've had my gas mower 35yrs and it still works fine. I use about 2gal of gas per year and even at CA prices that is like only $6. I've changed the air filter once and the spark plug once and never changed the oil(don't want to spend money on those suction motor kit). The only thing is now the rubber gas hose is leaking(starting to rot) so I need to replace it but not bad for 35yrs. Other things did break though since this was a self-propelled but the lines and belts broke but i like the exercise so I never fix. How many battery packs will you use over 35yrs and will the company even be around in 35yrs

I've been using a 60v snapper for 3 full seasons now (will be 4 seasons this July), and am still on the original batteries. I see no noticeable difference in run time, and the cells inside the snapper and Greenworks are EXACTLY the same make and model. Get electric, it's so much better than gas if you have half an acre or less to mow.

Been waffling back and forth between gas and battery for weeks. Had finally made up my mind to get a gas powered Honda. I'm so tempted to get this instead.

Some of us are OK paying the freight when it comes to the convienence factor or not having to gas it up, pull starting, the smell and noise, and the lighter weight of an electric mower, just to name a few things.

Also, we all have multiple tools that use the same battery, so we don't have to gas up a trimmer, blower, hedge trimmer, pole saw, or chainsaw.

I don't have this product, but I have the Kobalt 80v mower with two 2.5Ah batteries and I'm ready to be done with battery powered mower. This is my third season, and the batteries are starting to go to crap. The first year, I could always finish the yard (1/2 acre lot but probably no more than 1/4 acre of actual lawn) without having to recharge the batteries (but I had to swap in the middle as one would run out of charge).

The second year, some times I could finish the yard, but many times, I had to charge one of the batteries.

This year (start of 3rd season), I have never been able to finish the yard without recharging the batteries. I mowed two days ago, and the lawn was longer than normal because it had rained for 5 straight days, and I went through 5 batteries. Not only that, but the batteries were too hot to charge and had to cool down. It ended up taking me 2.5 hours because of the wait for the batteries to cool, the short run time of the batteries, and the time to recharge them. With a gas mower, it would take me an hour maximum.

I just mowed again today, because it is supposed to rain 6 of the next 7 days, so I took a tiny bit off the top (2 days of growth) just so it's a tiny bit shorter the next time I have to mow it, and it went through 2.5 batteries. Not only that, the battery again was too hot to charge (I've rarely had this happen before, I thought it was due to the taller than normal grass) so it took me about 1.75 hours to mow as I had to wait for the first battery to cool.

It's better for the environment obviously, but I've wasted at least 2.25 hours this week waiting on batteries to charge so I can continue to mow.

I would absolutely never purchase a mower with a single battery. Especially seeing as how this battery has a 2 year warranty... and I'm starting to see very bad degradation after 2+ years. You're looking at probably $300 every two years on batteries or waiting for a long time for that large of a battery to recharge in the middle of your mow.

I will be trying to get my batteries replaced by the end of the year, as Kobalt as a 3 year warranty thankfully on the batteries.

Not sure if this is a newer model, but I got in on the big sales last Fall. I've got about a 1/4 acre backyard and this can do it in one go if I don't let the grass get too long and if I forego the self-propelling. Half tempted to buy a 5.0ah refurb as a spare just because it'd be nice to get both the front and back yards done without waiting on a charge in between, but it's all good.

Don't know if this will help, but I own the Snapper version of this mower. It is the exact same mower and battery system, but painted red and sold at Walmart. Ive had it for 2 years and this year I sold my gas mower because I was convinced / converted. I'm on a .29 acre suburban lot with lots of little hills and steep areas and more than one type of grass. These mowers are perfect for people like me. If you need more cutting power ( not sure why) or need hours of continuous cutting time then by all means buy a gas mower. However, if you are a typical American homeowner you should know that this is the perfect, low maintenance, lightweight, effective cutting machine that you need. An it always starts. I mean always. No Honda or Briggs & Stratton motor that I have ever owned starts 100% of the time. This does. And with no effort. You just push the button and engage the safety handle and it cuts on. Every. Time.

My mower also folds up for easy garage storage. When I bought it I was nervous about running out of charge so I bought a 2nd battery. Happy to report I have only needed the 2nd battery two times. Once when I was out of town for a month and had to mow thigh high grass (it was a jungle - neighbors were ticked), and the first battery still finished 90% of the yard. The other time is when my wife used the battery and didn't charge it. It recharges very fast in any case.

Also on longevity - I can't speak beyond the time I have had this mower. But I bought a Greenworks trimmer and blower in 2011 from Amazon (still have the transaction in my history) with a single battery. I have followed the instructions and the whole set including the battery are still going strong 9 years later. I'd say that the battery probably has 80% of the capacity it started with. I usually only run it down about halfway each time I do the yard.

Honestly, I will never willingly go back to gas powered equipment, and I have owned a lot of it. Not having to deal with the maintenance, fuel, smell, etc of a gas engine is worth the tradeoff in power. But that's just one suburban dad's opinion. Oh and I'd say about half of my neighbors have converted to battery mowers, most just within the past year or two.

Someone else has the Snapper Smilie

It is kinda stupid that the batteries between the snapper and Greenworks have different interfaces. They are the same battery.
