Had to change height from 3 to 5 and clean under the mower where the blade is. 4 re-charges, (4 total charges so far) you can just tell going to high grass battery was draining fast. On the lower end it lasted a good 40 minutes.
Debating purchasing another 4 mAh battery though, any users have any suggestions?
By the way, one of my good friends stopped by and asked why would I get electric...when I can grab $130 gas one. Not having to smell gas or refill it just makes all the difference to me. What do you guys think?
Next week my trimmer arrives and I will have some fun learning how to use that.
I will add my experience to this if that is okay. I have used a lead-acid battery push mower for the last ~7 years for my lawn which takes about 50 minutes to mow. The handle broke on that mower and the two batteries I had were not lasting quite long enough anyways so I looked for a replacement.
I tried 2 other lithium-ion mowers first which didn't cut very well and the 2 batteries didn't even last long enough. I then even tried a gas mower next and while it cut well and was self-propelled, handling the gas and dealing with the stink and noise was still unacceptable to me (what first drove me to electric 7 years ago). I was hesitant to get the Ego simply because it is so relatively expensive and I knew I would not be able to get through my lawn on one charge.
I tried it anyways and am pleased with my first mowing. The grass wasn't very high but a little damp. I was able to get 37 minutes of mulching out of a full charge. I then trimmed and took a little break while giving the battery a partial 20-minute charge. Then I was able to finish mowing easily. I still wish it came with 2 batteries given how expensive it is, but if the full-charge runtime stays over 30 minutes I will be happy.
6/20 Did another full round of mowing front and back. 3 charges (6 total)
6/24 tools arrived so I just played around with all 3 tools for a couple of hours. (1 charge, 7 total)
6/27 Hedged left side of the house front and mowed in the back (3 charges, 10 total)
7/5 Mowed the front and Hedged some more with light trimming (2 charges, 12 total)
Running nicely and I'm getting better and better
