No. It's best to keep the batteries partially discharged for long-term storage. I think this is covered in the manual. In fact, the battery will self-discharge to something like 30 percent after a month of inactivity, even if it's in the charger.

Where was deal?
It was a floor model that they reduced for some reason. It was the only one.

If you haven't at least tried to fire it up and run it for a bit to make sure it works well, be sure to do that at least. I don't recall if HD has a different policy regarding floor model returns, but it would be good to know if you will need to return it before whatever return policy there may be runs out. Congrats on the great deal.
Thank you, will do
Should I consider getting the HD warranty, 3 years for 130.00?

I think as long as you've registered it with Ego you will have the 5 year tool warranty and the 3 year battery warranty. Probably don't need the extra HD warranty.
Thank you, I have registered it.

Did you ever inquire of HD if they will honor a floor model at half-price, the same as any other mower purchased?  I may be facing the same question, so am curious myself.
