Does anyone know if there will be any Black Friday specials on EGO equipment?  I'm interested in getting a mower...

EGO rarely posts advance notice of any specials so you'll have to watch this forum or the Home Depot ads. Checking Home Depot's website is also helpful. EGO does seem to run specials from time to time so it wouldn't be surprising if something was on special for black friday.

I haven't seen any leaked Home Depot ads for Black Friday yet. Last year, I don't recall too many deals in EGO equipment for Black Friday whether on EGO's website or via Home Depot. The best deals for EGO products seem to be via Home Depot's "Deals of the Day" which I look at everyday.

With the trade war tariffs you may be waiting a long time...

I picked up an EGO 21" push mower at home depot for $324. (on clearance).  Reg. was $399.
I then submitted a rebate from my city to "convert" from gas to an electric mower.  That rebate was for $200.

I also picked up a few ego tools, but only receive a minor 15% discount on those.

Looking to pick up an edger next.  Hopefully on Blackfriday or Cybermonday.

The edger / power head bare tool has been the deal of the year for a long time.  $20 cheaper than the power head alone.  Not sure what deal you are waiting for

FYI... I learned when I bought mine that any HD manager can give a $50 discount without approved.
So ask and receive......

My daughter in law says that does not happen, about the $50 discount. Her manager is only allowed to give 10% off . I didn't know that till I told her about this post. But how does one do that with an online purchase? Back to square one.

Here's exactly how I did it - asked for the discount for opening a credit card (that I didn't want) - when she said yes, I said, I don't really want or need a credit card, but will buy the mower if you can do the discount.

She made a call and I heard her say "I didn't know we could do that" and repeated to me that she/they could without manager approval on I assume purchases over $___ amount

Worth it to ask unless you're shy about that cuz it worked for me

Do not buy one unless your yard is completely level. Mower will cut shorter down the incline and longer up the incline. Yard should not be any larger than 7,000 sq yds with one battery. Other than that it's a good mower for a battery operated one.

Did you mean to say square yards? That comes out to nearly an acre and a half or 63,000 sq ft.

I thought I read in the owner's manual it's better to mow horizontal to the slope instead of up and down it. Could be my CRS kicking in again, though.

You are correct re the mowing on a slope Mike.

Jack is this a blanket statement for all Ego mowers or just a particular model.

Jack, I too have noticed that the mower does cut shorter down the incline (and the mower will rev up). But I fail why that would prevent someone from buying this mower. Other mowers would have this issue. Also...why would size of yard matter if you already determined to use a push mower instead of a riding mower? Fail to see that much difference in the need to recharge a battery vs refueling a mower. Some time difference in the recharging/refueling, but with gas or electric after mowing an hour I take a break anyway.

I have an incline no matter which way I go. Sideways is very slight but the grass still cuts the same as on a deep incline. And yes I meant ft. and not yds. I have the self propelled with 1 huge battery. Use to be able to cut with one charge during my cut on 10,000 sq ft equaling 1 hour loss of time but acceptable. Now it has been taking 2 charges equaling a total of 2 hours of loss time. So I figure that up to 7,000 ft with slopes or not should be able to be handled by one charge.
It is the end of my second season. First season was newly laid sod and did not notice a different cut at that time. All my gas mowers in the past always cut smooth no matter up or down. As it stands now I'll probably have to buy a gas mower next spring. That will be over a $1000 for two years of cutting for me unless Ego can figure out something. I initially thought Ego's advice on slopes regarded safety issues NOT that the mower would cut different lengths in the grass.

Jack, have you sharpened your blade lately? A sharp blade makes an incredible difference in both cut quality and battery life. People with large yards should plan to sharpen their Ego blade at least twice per season.

Jack, if your battery is deteriorating, best make a claim before the 3 years is up.

I did, and got a replacement battery in my 2nd year.  Tho I dread ever having to use Home Depot to send it in for repairs, fingers are crossed that never happens.  Nurse it along til end of mowing season, then send it in during the winter.

A brand new high lift blade right out of the box did the same thing but at first to a lesser degree then later the exact same. I got an electric mower so I wouldn't have to do anything with it even not having to sharpen the blade twice a year. My old gas powered one went 10 yrs with nothing done to the blade and still cut the same and smooth. Yes, my grass finally hibernated during the first part of November so I will contact Ego about sending it in but 'what can they do since this problem seems to be a design flaw?"
