Hello, I'm thinking about purchasing an extra mower (21" SP), without batteries, and I want to make sure the mower would work with the batteries I have.  I have two batteries, which I purchased two years ago.  Has the mower design changed in the past two years?  My two-year-old batteries would work in a new mower, wouldn't they?  -Scott

I have a riding mower too.  But I prefer to use the EGO mower, because it gives me exercise, and it's five miles to the nearest gas station!  I like to call the riding mower my wheel-chair with blades; my old clunker.  My batteries are the 7.5 AH kind.  -Scott

Hey, I ended up getting a new SP mower with battery and charger.  So now I have two EGO-SP mowers, two chargers and three batteries.  One of the mowers is still "in the shop."  I still feel that it makes sense to have two mowers, since I have a large (two acre) yard.  And I have a third mower, which is a gas-powered zero-radius-turn riding mower by Cub Cadet, but I hardly ever use it.

The EGO mower(s) is (are) a good source of exercise for me.  I have a farm-house in the country, and I don't do much trimming.  I have a couple spots which I trim once in a while with manual clippers.

Attached is an aerial picture of my house and yard, which I took with a drone.  The front yard is about an acre, and the back yard is about an acre.  I mow the whole thing with an EGO mower--or rather, two mowers, since I have two now--I'll be alternating between them.

That is a great exercise plan Scott.
How long does it take you to complete the job ?
Do you listen to music, audio books or enjoy the quite ?
