With the success of this trimmer, I also converted my "dead" gas leaf blower and bought the EGO 110 MPH 530 CFM leaf blower. Similarly to the 15" trimmer, I have nothing but great praises for this equipment as well. It does the job that it was designed to do - so 2 for 2 so far with EGO !!!! And since I had great success thus far, I made the final decision to convert all my lawn equipment over to EGO - for the many benefits of a battery operated machine vs. gas.
Now back to the lawn mower, I bought my EGO 21" Self Propelled in early July of this year and have been using it on a weekly basis, sometimes twice a week, depending on how fast my grass is growing. I absolutely love the fact that you simply press the "green" button and the lawn mower starts every time !!!! The self propelled works well and the light weight of the lawn mower makes cutting grass FUN !!!! I also love the fact that I don't have to deal with gas, oil, air filter, and yearly maintenance.
I wanted to use the lawn mower for a good 30 to 45 days, before writing my reviews. This way, I can spend enough time evaluating the PROs and CONs of this machine. That said; I am having the same issue with the "mulch" cutting capability of this lawn mower, as some other reviewers. The one time I decided to "bag" my clippings, the lawn mower did a good job - so no issues there. However, I like to "mulch" cut my grass, but this lawn mower always leave behind a trail of "clippings" on the left side of the lawn mower.
I have tried some of the recommendations of other reviewers without success. The only way that I can get rid of the "clippings" is to make a 2 pass on every cut, which end up increasing the amount of time I am spending on cutting my grass. And since EGO does not recommend using any other blades with this machine, I am left with a limited option. As much as I wanted to be "gas" free with all my lawn equipment, I have no choice but to "return" my lawn mower to HD and go back to a gas lawn mower - which I did today : (
Please understand that I am not here to "bash" EGO, as I believe in their products. Hence, I still own the 15" trimmer and the 530 CFM leaf blower with great success !!!!! I also plan to buy their new snow blower this fall, after I get rid of my old gas snow blower. The lawn mower, however, is not doing what I expect it to do with the "mulch" cutting capability. Until EGO can fix this issue, I will go back to a "gas" lawn mower for now.
