Used new EGO mower for first time this weekend, and was thrilled with the job it did. Not only is the mower light and easy to use but I was able to listen to my music without having it at rock concert sound levels. My lawn has some thick grass areas and I was anxious to see if they would cause the machine to bog down at all. Zipped though them with no problem. Had to recharge once but used that time to move some laundry around. I am so pleased with this purchase and even happier that I waited to purchase an electric mower until I found one that had all the features I wanted (three mowing options!). Thank you for what I hope will be a wonderful mower for years to come!
