I'm thinking of buying this product for my father as a gift but I don't leave in USA and would need to bring with me as a checked luggage. 
I know there are some restrictions related to the Lithium Battery on planes. Do you know if there is any problem of carrying the battery that comes with the product on a plane?
Thank you.

I'm unclear on a couple of things, but let me see if I can help.

If your father lives in the U.S. and you're coming here to visit him, you're probably better off buying the mower here. A major store chain called Home Depot is the exclusive seller in the U.S., but they,re quite common all over the U.S. The mower is pretty bulky and heavy. I can't imagine what kind of a fee an airline would charge you to bring it with you.

Judging by your profile photo you're in Brazil. Maybe an EGO rep here can let you know who carries EGO products in that country.
