Love my 20" Ego mower but really want the self-propelled because of the steep grade in our back yard. I set the price at $300 on craigslist and facebook, posted pics and info, no bites. Not a one. I'm thinking people have no idea how cool this mower is.

Has anyone ever had luck selling a used Ego mower? Any advice would be appreciated. I can't justify buying the new one until the old one is sold. Ego needs a trade up program! ;)

How about giving it to someone? Got an elderly neighbor who owns a gas mower? Parents? A kid who wants to make a few bucks cutting lawns this summer?

Selling would be nice, but doing someone a favor would be pretty nice too. :-)

I have a friend who lives in Canada who comes to the States twice a year. She happened to mention that the trip would cost her so much more this year.

As far as the mower goes, it's nice to have but not a necessity. I look at it as an investment in a piece of exercise equipment as I often mow twice a week and have a huge hill in my yard that I cut vertically.

Exercise equipment... right. I'll have to try that angle and see what my wife says. Wish me luck, I'm gonna need it!!!

I've considered the idea of gifting it and that would be a blast, but on this one, my brain and wallet kinda need a bit of cash to justify the new toy.  ;)

I'm not going to mention that to her until just the right moment... probably that hazy, hallucinatory moment right as she's falling asleep. If I can get any sort of positive feedback like a muffled "uh-huh" then we're good to go!

Actually, we just had our 9th anniversary. 10 is less than a year away... nutin' says luvin' like a new self propelled mower, right?

Right...
