A reel mower with a leveling bar and half inch height adjustments. I keep scalping my Bermuda grass lawn. Self-sharpening blades, self-propelled, with bagger would be nice as well.

It was easy to make a fiskars 18" stay sharp battery powered and easy to self propel them. In case you like to build things. If not I do hope ego makes one some day for ya.

With a 2000 watt motor. You could have a 70 to 80" reel mower. Easily.

Time to get building if you want one..a single 18" reel is crazy easy to build. And the runtime would be hours on a 5 ah battery. I had built my 3 gang last year and this year I'm doing a 5 gang system. I wouldn't wait for ego to make one. Reels are kind of a pain in the butt but are quite amazing.

Agreed, a 56V li ion reel mover by EGO would fill a huge gap in the market right now.  The only comparable one is a 24V made by Gardena (a Husqvarna company) which cuts nice and short with the English lawn look, but a more powerful, longer run-time 56V version would be great!  Plus the Gardena version is really hard to find.  Just make sure it can cut short like a golf green...something most of the manual push reel mowers do not do well.  Use California Trimmer as your benchmark.

EGO, here's your next big product!!

Jacob- Would you make a youtube video of HOW you make an electrified fiskar?  For example, where to put the pulleys, how to align things, how to wire motors?

No time bud. Sorry. It's not very hard if you use a fiskars 18" mower.
