This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: EGO Electric Riding Zero-Turn Mower

I have been waiting patiently for a large corporation such as Ryobi of Kobalt to come out with a ride on electric 30" + deck mower so that you all can one up them. I live and breath by your company and will not purchase anything that is not your product. I feel the engineering team should look into creating a small ride on mower that can be used in suburban areas with a plug in rechargeable battery!

I don't have a big enough yard for such a beast, but would love to see what an EGO riding mower would look like ... so I am in agreement with you here!

Same here, although I may have use for one in the future.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Ego riding mower.

Is there anyway to know if ego is actively researching a riding mower? I have to say the ryobi riding mower is very tempting. I am willing to wait another year and I would love to see ego make that jump. So far everything I have is great from ego. My yard is just a tad too large for the push mower -just under an acre....I hope to hear some good news soon.

In light of an article I just read on Seeking Alpha regarding the resale value myth, poor reliability, and high maintenance cost of Tesla's cars, I think I may prefer Ego to remain the "Ego of electric lawn equipment."   Here is the link but it will require you to register (free) to read it:

The article is pure junk. He needs to either graduate grade school first or remove the blinders, or perhaps both

I know very little about Teslas.  So out of curiosity, what in the article do you take exception to?

A reader actually don't need to know about Tesla to figure out how much time they have wasted reading articles like this. It pretends to present all the one sided coments without giving you any baseline. It's pretty much the same as when I call the article pure junk. But of course, I'm more than happy to write a junk comment. Not that many people will be wasting their time on my comment:)

First of all, there are very few parts in any electric car. Fewer parts means fewer things can go wrong. There is absolutely no evidence that supports a claim that teslas are unreliable. Why this sorry excuse of a writer has a beef to grind with teslas, i can't begin to speculate. I don't like elon musk either, but you don't see me writing this kind of junk about tesla. I have seen people with problems, like all cars. These cars already have a lot less problems especially when you consider how young of a model it is.
 
The repair are expensive, well no doo doo. Try repairing your S class or 7 series. I know how much that costs too:( Again, there is no evidence that model S repairs are more expensive just because they replace the whole module at a time which he failed to mention. On the contrary, many owners have built a forecast model out based on their own repair experiences. The repair costs are way lower than other cars of the same class. I'm sure it'd be more expensive if you compare it to a toyota camry. In fact, I'm sure it will be more expensive if you just compare it to owning a bicycle. 

Then it goes on to list very possible fault he can dig up. I'm sure I can find a few scratches or missing hair on my wife's skin if I wanted to. 

Anyway, that's getting off topic;)
