My thoughts addressing several complaints from another poster about gas vs electric (can apply to any brand electric push mower).....

1.Sound is a preference. The sound of a gas push mower has NEVER bothered me. Maybe I'm what they call a manly man? Who knows. I wear ear buds with music because mowing is a monotonous job...and no they aren't any louder than I would typically have them. I wear them while cutting with my electric Snapper mower too. Regardless, if there's no problem I don't need a solution. If the sound of a gas push mower bothers you...by all means go electric!! Personal preference all day every day.

Perhaps YOU simply prefer things that operate without much sound....your personal preference, but not indicative of a PROBLEM.

2. The smell given off by a properly running gas push mower has NEVER bothered me. Again, maybe I'm a "manly man" who has become immune to such troubling issues. (LOL...but maybe true?). But seriously, my mowers don't give off any bothersome smells from where I stand while operating them. No problem = no need for a solution

3. Maintenance. This is a biggy where people just run with the electric mower marketing crap — trying to solve a "problem" that doesn't really exist. My Honda mowers get the following maintenance:

- oil change every 2-4 years = $2
- air filter dusted off every year = free
- spark plug every 3-4+ years = $3

Let's call it $10 every 5 years. That's $2 year or $0.17/month.

Again, no problem = no need for a solution

4.Winterizing a gas push mower is one of the easiest things known to man. Takes literally 30 seconds.

No problem = no need for solution

5.I've never had to deal with this warm up issue you speak of.

No problem = no need for a solution

6.If you don't have much space and NEED a lawnmower that hangs on the wall...get a mower that hangs on the wall. My Honda with the handle folded down takes up so little space that it's not even something I think about.

No problem = no need for a solution

7.See my above reply about maintenance costs

No problem = no need for a solution

8.Squeezing out a medium sized fart takes as much effort as the pull string on my mower. However, I'm not looking for some kind of automatic fart-releaser.

No problem = no need for a solution

9.I'm not annoyed by the vibrations of my mower.

No problem = no need for a solution

10.Sorry if I'm not intelligent enough to know how "freeing" it is to not deal with that pesky gas can and quart of motor oil. Dude, do you realize how silly this argument is?

No problem = no need for a solution

11.You are free to have your opinion. Meanwhile I'm saving time and effort by not worrying about where the profits on my $30/year in lawnmower gas goes.

No problem = no need for a solution

12.And there's nothing a battery powered mower does that I can't do with my gas Honda. But there are a few things the battery powered mower can't do that my gas powered mower CAN do. Namely:

1. Doesn't require me to monitor my battery level. This has a HUGE HUGE HUGE HUGE HUGE practical benefit. I simply cut, cut, cut add fuel, cut, cut, cut. Can the electric mower cut my 1 acre lot and with no turn around time cut my parents' 0.5 acre lot? Hell no. No go for me.

2. A gas mower NEVER runs out of juice. Take 30 seconds to add gas and you are back to mowing. Who wants to almost get done because their battery is dead. That's wasted time. And time is money.

3. What happens when you're pumped to cut grass but forgot to charge that battery. Wasted time WAITING to cut grass when your mower finally becomes ready to work. And you have the nerve to bring up "warm up" time on a gasser....

The battery mowers just can't keep up with me.

They offer no practical advantages while have several disadvantages.

At this point the battery powered mower is a solution to problems that don't really exist.

And here's the kicker....

I bet in 5 years (under warranty those 5 years), I can easily sell my $700 MSRP HRX for $200 (even the commercial guys use them). Meanwhile, in 5 years, the Ego will likely be several models old with a battery that last 5 minutes. In other words it goes to the trash. Honda's on the other hand have a long track record of cutting people's grass without many issues for 10, 15, 20+ years.

HRX for the win on power, practical benefits, time savings and cost of ownership.

Ego for the win on hanging up in the garage and making less noise.

Applause

I apologize for this level of critique — I really do wish everyone the best with whatever mower.

I just feel electric mowers, for the most part are marketed to people who want a new toy and reasons to justify it....maybe those that want to be more hip or feel more technologically "advanced".

Battery powered trimmer and blower though.....well I just bought the Ego trimmer/blower from HD for $200. I can deal with battery power on those tools. If my trimmer/blower runs out of juice I'll just charge and finish within the next few days.
Yes, we get it; if I buy an electric mower I must not be a manly man like you.

Thanks for the pithy analysis. /s

That is a great deal. The Lowe's stores around me still have it at $425 to $499.

I just got mine (picked up for $325 - 20% coupon for opening lowes card).

Used it already.

What I liked:
* lightweight
* cut well
* Height adjustment was SUPER simple... just 1 control
* handle adjustment and folding was easy.

What I didn't like:
* no ability to lock the self propel lever in the ON position
- this got old real quick
* wish the self propel controls were also variable speed control instead of having a separate speed setting.

I had to use my smaller 2/2.5 Ah batteries since the included battery wasn't charged up. those didn't quite cover my "overgrown/slightly damp" yard. but the 5aH battery would have done fine.

It looks like all in-store clearance prices are back up on this. Any thoughts on how this compares to the Kobalt 80V?
