I am interested in purchasing a ego lawwnmower.  I have a lawn which is about 5000 square feet so an 1/8th of an acre about.  It is relatively flat - appreciate comments on what ego I should get.  I am not a lawn fanatic if that helps.  Another consideration is that I might be interested in buying a ego snowblower as well - in case that makes a difference because of shared parts like the battery etc... thanks in advance!

Some questions. Do you think you'll need self propel? Maybe not if yard is pretty flat. Do you generally bag the clippings or mulch them? Leaves in the fall to pick up? How much snow would you need to move? 
The latest and greatest 2 blade mower does a great job and is available in self propel and non self propel. It doesn't mulch all that well in my experience but it bags great. It really doubles well as a yard vacuum too. It sucked up our fall leaves with ease. Cut quality is the best of any EGO mower. 

Since the EGO battery system means any EGO battery can be used in any EGO tool that makes staying with EGO an easy decision. Whichever direction you go, meaning snow blower before mower or vice versa, get the kit for both. Meaning tool, batteries, and charger. It's the best price for all of those things. You are practically getting the tool for free. The snowblower works best with 8 ah or more of battery power so you will want at least 2 5 ah batteries for it. The new mower comes with 7.5 ah for the self propel model and 5 ah with the non. 

An alternative to the snow blower is the bristle brush attachment for the multi-head system. I used mine recently on about 1" of fresh snow and it worked well. Unfortunately the brush is only sold as an attachment to the multi-head but there is a kit that is an edger and multi-head together that comes with battery and charger.
