Ego Power Mower Improvements

I like the Ego Self Propelled Mower much better than my previous gas mower.  Still, nothing is perfect and here are a few suggestions for the next generation:

1.  The mower should have variable speed built into the self propel lever.  I don't mean controlling by moving the max speed lever on the left, but the squeeze trigger on the right should allow adjusting speed from zero to max by the position held.    There are times when speed must be reduced around shrubs etc. and the only way to really control it in these situations it to turn off self propel and push.  My previous Sears Craftsman gas mower had this ability.

2.  The battery should have a carry handle - perhaps just a canvas strip attached across top.  It is too easy to drop the battery when carrying it and this can damage it and pose a fire risk where it is stored.

3.  The pop up lid for the battery compartment should be able to stay up on it's own without having to be held up while inserting the battery.

4.  The rear metal door should have a catch to hold it up and out of the way while the grass bag is being inserted and then a way to release it and press against the grass bag.

Thanks for considering in future models.
