Starting my 4th year mowing over an acre. All tools are still going strong. Thank You EGO. I would be fat without you.

While I can praise EGO's tools, I can't praise my diet/weight  :(.

Watch "Fork over Knives on Netflick.  It will save your life.  It saved my wife's life.  Her Heart Doctor stated "Your following "Fork over Knives". Great!  I do not have to prescribe any medicine.  You will heal yourself."
And she has.

HAHAHAHA!!!!
Love my EGO Mower, Leaf & Grass Trimmer also!
Go by Home Depot & look at the new battery operated riding lawnmower!  Awesome, cut 2 acres or runs for 2 hours.

I'm very much looking forward to starting my Ego summer workout program!

In my case Ego has made me fatter, if anything. I used to burn as many calories dealing with my 100 ft extension cord as I did actually mowing and trimming. My weekly 55 minute "workout" was almost cut in half.

Thanks Ego. I think?

Kidding of course. That darn extension cord would likely have put me in the loonie bin... physical exercise can't counter mental stress and high blood pressure, lol! :-)

Use 2 ah batteries. You will have many trips to the charger

Unfortunately (fortunately?) a 2Ah battery is enough to mow my lawn. Doh! Maybe I can walk slower, or just get out of this townhouse and have a real yard.

Ok, remove batteries out of your 2 ah battery until you have a single cell... Mow a foot, walk to charger, recharge, back again, mow a foot, repeat.  You'll get some great exercise, and probably throw the battery pack at someone when you are done.  So legs and arm exercise.

I like the throwing part a LOT. I have some neighbors that would make well-deserving targets.

I'd consider that action to be VERY nice...  I'd be doing society a favor to knock some sense into some people!

The key word was "deserving".  Natural selection just ain't working anymore.  :-)

It would only be programmed to cut grass so humanity will get fat maybe.
