I have several trees on my lot, so I constantly mow over small twigs/branches. Does anyone have experience with this type lot, and how has the EGO performed? I have this on my short list for my next mower, but I need a mower that can handle this.

My mower eats twigs no problem. It even chops through the bigger stuff too. I wouldn’t try branches though lol. Regular fall off from trees hasn’t been a problem yet apart from them piercing the bag. The bag is big but wears through at the corners quite easily

Small twigs, leaves etc. shouldn’t be a problem, besides accelerating your blade sharpening schedule.

Thanks for the replies.  The EGO is on my short list and this was my biggest concern.

I have the original 20-inch mower. My neighbor's locust tree drops small twigs in my backyard all the time, and my spruce tree drops pine cones. None of them have been a problem. I do move bigger pieces, though.
