I must be the only one who's not on the ego mower bandwagon. I bought this exact one and after adding the mulching blade and cutting 5" St augustine down to 3" it didn't last 25 minutes and died halfway through my 0.3 acre yard. It also left random spots of grass that it missed. I ended up returning it and rebuilding my Troybilt gas mower. Although it is powerful and had no problem propelling through the grass, runtime is just not to my expectations in replacing my gas mower. The technology has awhile to go before I try to convert again.
I dont have the same issue with missed spots but I agree that the battery life is this mower's biggest weakness. The battery life varies a lot depending on the conditions, mowing taller, thick and/or moist grass depletes it fast. However, I do have 2 EGO batteries (a 5Ah from the EGO blower) and that helps a lot.

I bought this model after last year's model had an issue with the self drive function (It's been sent out for repair for two months now).

I prefer last years model as far as control accessibility. The dual blade aka select cut still doesn't quite get everything in the first pass either. Overall, I'm still on board with ego, but I wouldn't have higher expectations for this model if you're still using last year's model.

Price online is $599. About three stores in Philly area have them on clearance. Bensalem had at least 10 for the $499 price. Good luck, happy hunting
I went last week to Bensalem after seeing the 10 in stock on bricks seek. Unfortunately they had none.

Buy this or wait for the brushless non x cut to be the same price?

My Briggs will never die. Bought it used for $60 10 years ago.
My Briggs didn't die, but one of the wheels broke off, so I bought and tried Ego (last year's model with 7.5Ah battery) and I was kicking myself for not switching sooner. If you consider the fact that there is no gas, toxic fumes, or engine oil to deal with, Ego makes a lot more sense, imho.

Have the first gen. Fantastic mower for the price. Love not having maintenance on this thing other than cleaning out beneath the deck from time to time. Mulches like a pro (even better with the improved blade available from Home Depot). Ended up buying like 4 or 5 other EGO products and they're all very impressive. Never going back to gas powered!

This is a great mower, picked it up for $600 in-store a few months ago but got the 11% (Menards match) rebate too. I'm using the mulching blade config and even in taller grass, there are basically no clumps leftover and the mower powers through anything I've thrown at it
Ego is awesome. I bought one locally used for $200. 4Ah battery, not the bigger one. And no self propel. But it's easily better than the Craftsman self-propel one I bought new for $200 on a SD a few years ago. Wouldn't go anything but Ego for string trimmers, blowers and mowers, IMO. Worth the price premium (with a sale).
I've used Ryobi, Greenworks, Sun Joe, Craftsman, Ego, Kobalt, etc.

I also like a lot less noise, my trimmer is louder.

My toro didn't die but I needed a change and decided to give the Ego a try after my brother in law raved about it.

EDIT: What I found below isn't the "select cut" model.

Well if you're OKAY with a refurb, they have them for $370:

So you'll save an additional $120 and free shipping to the store closest to you as well.

Keep in mind that you'll have to install the mulching blade yourself so have a set of (socket) wrenches on hand, and a vice so that you can remove the bolts on the blades as well. Between 12mm and 14mm will be enough to remove the bolts.

You'll have to put in a good amount of effort on your end because the manufacturer put on the nut and bolts very tight, unless you have an impact wrench. It's a good deal if you can get it because the battery itself typically rings up anywhere between $300 and $350.

To make sure you get the longest amount of life out of your battery, charge the battery all the way, then take it off the charger. Remove the battery every time you're done with the EGO. Only charge it when you completely exhaust the battery. Lithium batteries are not meant to be in a machine all the time, nor are they meant to run constantly. This is why most phones don't have easily removable backs anymore because the companies want you to replace the battery through them.

You should easily get 5+ years out of the battery if you follow this advice. $300+ may sound like a lot, but its typically the only thing that will need replacing, and if you put aside a bit of money every year, you should have enough to buy the battery once it goes bad. It's basically putting aside $6/month for about 5 years. Anyone can do that.

Of course, if you have a massive yard (1+ acre), you're gonna be using a riding mower anyway. Efficient for people who have 3/4th of an acre or below., people who live in gated communities and have guidelines to follow, people who are getting older and can't keep up with the constant maintenance/loudness of a gas mower.

Not bad, especially with the 7.5ah battery

Report from the trenches. I've had my EGO mower since 2015. The battery died after about 2 years. EGO sent me a new one no questions asked. Surprisingly they sent me a larger batter than the one that failed. Woot! Been solid ever since going on 3 yrs. Note the battery warranty is 3 yrs. So you've got 3 years of functionality guaranteed.
