I have about all of EGO's electric products with the exception of the snow blower. I am wondering if and when EGO might develop an electric Zero-Turn riding mower. They are currently available and on the market by several different manufacturers, and I am in the market as the rest of the EGO cordless products have spoiled me. This spring I'd like to sell off my gas powered zero-turn and replace it with an electric one. EGO ... Are you listening?

I agree they could do even more but I am also impressed that they continue to innovate with new products. I wonder if Ego will beat John Deere to bringing a lithium powered residential zero turn ride-on mower to the market. Mean Green already makes commercial versions.
I now understand why Ego came out with their 20" Steel, Brushless mower...they are trying to keep up with the Greenworks Commercial line. http://greenworkscommercial.com/available-on-siteone/ The Site One folks reach out to me last week to try out their products. That should be interesting. Mind you, not an easy switch even if the product is better (ie: mulching ability) when I have so much invested in Ego and rightly so, they brought the best to the market first. Funny thing is that I started out with the 20" dual blade Greenworks in our first year (which mulched great btw) but it wasn't built to stand up to our heavy workload; so when Ego came to the market it was a big improvement with version 1 and then even better with version 2. Now they have version 3 but I'm not ready to invest in the kit version because I don't need more batteries at this time.

I did mock up these reels with a snowblower, but u would need 21" reels or have it stick WAAAAY out front. Plus the snowblowers dinky wheels would have to become rollers. Cuz 2 sets of wheels without steering makes it go straight. So i abandoned that idea right away. Now if i could get a used one, then i would power a set of drive shafts instead of individual motors. Still have to figure out self propel as its zero turn also... so electrically and hydraulically are possible. Electric might be easier... i need electric wheelchair motors and controllers. But those are 36 or 48v.. any 60v motors are really hard to find. Might have to underpower 72v or 90v as 90vdc is common.

The motors i have, are not reversible. They are shunt motors so that sucks bad. But they were all i could find.

Some guy is selling 20" mower motors for 120 on ebay right now and a controller for 85.... garbage deal.

LOL, Jacob in his November Lawn Ninja Turtle costume.  Less flattering than your blade sharpening get-up, but hey, because cold in North! :-)
