So I wanted to test how my EGO mower would do after sitting for 6 months during winter. I didn't clean it, lubricate anything or condition the battery. I just topped off the charge and took care of business. Here's my video review of the results, pretty impressive.

Pretty much echoed my experience from last year; charge the battery and go! I haven't had to cut yet this season, but it looks like I'll have to by next weekend.

This is how my Ego spent the winter, just hanging out:

Well, if you tied it up so you could unfold the handles without taking it down first, you could just fire it up and mulch/bag/discharge them as desired! :-)

I would rather fill it with gas and burn the things.  I don't want a spider tornado  :-O.  But, I would burn my house down while I was at it.

Imagine the flame thrower one could build with an Ego blower!?!?!

Use the backpack blower to throw the flame into your spider nest
