Awesome! Despite the squeaking noise from the heigh system reported here: https://community.egopowerplus.com/eg... the mower is a great product. I've used a Lawnboy for 10 years, it was big, heavy, loud and somewhat powerful (6.5hp) and I hated it! The EGO 20" is extremely powerful compared to the 6.5hp Techumseh, it mulches like a charm, earring the blade suction wind from under, it cuts grass evenly I cried for not having this sooner! My 11 years old daughter has tried it and was able to maneuver in slight slope!! I have a 4k square feet area and use a little more than 5.0 amp battery. I added a 2.0 amp. to alternate when needed. I thought lamp on the front was a gadget, but I had to use it twice since the sound level of the mower gives me the chance to finish after dusk!
