Just saw the May 2016 edition of Consumer Reports. The two new 21" EGOs are at the top of the electric mower ratings. A total of 36 electric mowers were tested.

The self-propelled model scored better than ALL mowers of ANY type except for the top two models from Toro and a few from Honda.

Very impressive to see Ego's newest electric mower outperforming all but the very best gas mowers—beating out dozens of models from well-known players—and after less than three years in the game!

Yes, and the two EGO's scored much better than the third ranked mower in the electric category - a B&D model that scored 64 vs the 79 and 75 points given to the 2100SP and 2100. The 2100 was also rated as a best buy. I purchased the 2100 yesterday and used it for the first time today. Much better than my old B&D CM 1936 mower.

How were the scores for other popular mowers like the Greenworks/Kobalt 80v, Echo and Ryobi?

Does the Echo go by another name? I don't see it on the list?
