Done with my mower. Back to gas. Bought a top of the line Honda. Love the whole idea behind the EGO brand but it just doesn't work for me. Tried it for about a year and it's time to move on. I'm in So. Florida with 1/3 acre of real thick St Augustine. Anybody interested then send me info.

Curious what specifically made you move on from the EGO mower for your acreage and grass type? Not enough power? Running time too short on the 5.0 or 7.5Ah batteries?

Jim, do you really think the Ego can do a good job on St Augustine??

I have not tried the Ego mower, nor do I have St. Augustine grass. Just trying to learn about the mower's limitations. In searching the Ego community, it appears there is mixed success on the thicker St. Augustine grass. Those with success are cutting on the highest cutting height since this grass type requires. Thanks.

It is the St Augustine mostly. In So Fl we have to cut the grass all year long, just getting a break from the frequency between November and March, when I cut about every 12-14 days. Other than those months it is EVERY WEEK. If the grass goes a day or two past it is almost impossible to get a clean cut because of the somewhat poor mulching capabilities of the mower. I really tried to embrace it and for the $$$$ I tried that much harder, but it became more of a chore than a pleasurable "me time" experience I have when I'm out there doing my thing , listening to tunes on my headset and getting a break from the inside world. It's a great machine but not for my situation. There are other cordless mowers out now, such as Stihl products that look like they may put EGO to shame, but they come with an even heftier price tag. The Honda mower I got is their top model and it has a 6 year warranty that I know I would have no problem getting fast service if ever needed.

You can't be talking about this POS. 16" cut.


I hope you are referring to something new they are coming out with.

The POS you are referring to is highly regarded amongst professional lawn care personnel her in South Florida. It is used as an ancillary mower for their homes that have intricate landscaping that may not allow a massive ride on to access all of the grass that needs to be cut. Not sure why you seem to take it personally that I referenced something other than an EGO mower. This is not the only model that they make and it is part of an entire line of battery powered lawn care equipment designed for professionals. So by no means is EGO a sub-par product, it just has its limitations and until they get it right, INCLUDING addressing the absolutely horrible service/repair process, it is just not for me.

I agree with the service issue totally. I just don't see a better option out there. Must be a different model as you said. Which model are you referring to. I want to read up on it

I will post some info but Stihl has a website which is plenty accessible and informative.
