In Review: EGO Power+ 20-Inch 56-Volt Lithium-ion Cordless Lawn Mower

EGO Power+ 20-Inch 56-Volt Lithium-ion Cordless Lawn Mower

When looking for a battery powered mower, the EGO Power+ should be one of the considerations. With a price tag of almost $500 (Mower with 5.0Ah Battery Kit), it is quite pricey. That said, consumer comments indicate a high level of satisfaction with this product. This article reviews the electric lawn mower, with the pros and cons.

The motor operates at 3300 RPM. Not everyone is satisfied with the cut quality brought to them by the cordless mower. You would not want to use it for cutting brush or mowing really high wet grass. Having said that, customer feedback indicates that it is sufficiently powerful for a battery-driven mower.

Generally, battery powered lawn mowers are ideal for city lots. Coming with a 20-inch cutting deck, this one is ideal for homeowners with a 1/4 acre yard. With 56 Volt rated battery pack, some people have found that it is a better alternative than the Twin Force G-Max 40V.

The company provides a different battery packs that include 4.0Ah and 5.0Ah. The 5.0 Amp Hour Ego battery provides a longer runtime. The battery lasts around 45 minutes, long enough to complete mowing a 1/4 acre yard, depending on the lawn condition.

With the rapid charging system, the battery recharges in about 30 minutes. Even if you cannot mow the whole yard on a single charge, battery runtime will not be really an issue. There is a power indicator on the mower that will tell you the charge remaining in the battery.

This model features 3-in-1 capabilities, meaning it can bag, mulch, or throw the grass clippings. Assembly is minimal. Basically, it is ready to use as a mulcher out of the box. Grass bag volume is 1.7 Bushel/60L, not very large that you may need to empty it often but this is not a big issue.

There are 5 height settings built into the system, ranging from 1.2” (30mm) to 3.5” (90mm). With one handed cutting height adjustment, raising or lowering the blade height can be accomplished quickly.

The easy push button start system is another impressive aspect of this mower. No need to pull a starting rope. A safety key must be inserted into a slot before you can start the motor. Located on the upper handle of the mower is a bail switch to engage and disengage the motor. When the switch is released, blade rotation will quickly stop.

The EGO Power+ is not self propelled, but weighing 56.2 lbs, it is relatively light in weight. The lithium battery technology surely contributes to its lightweight design. At 58.9 lbs, the WORX WG771 19-Inch cordless is a bit heavier than this model. The mower folds up and stores vertically, which is great for those with a limited amount of space in the garage.

Another feature that you may find useful is the LED work lights to provide extra light for increased visibility. It can help you keep mowing if the sun goes down. The handle is adjustable, making moving it less strenuous for taller people. It can be locked into one of the operating positions.

The 3-in-1 lawn mower has been reviewed by many customers at Amazon.com. The feedback has generally been very positive. Its ability to cut grass has pleased many of its users. Not very heavy duty, but have plenty of power for a battery-powered unit.

Coming with a fancy plastic housing, the EGO Power+ LM2000 is a nice looking lawn mower. With a lightweight design, people have commented that it is easy to push around. No need for propulsion. In terms of construction, it may not be as durable as a metal gas-powered mower, but generally customers have been pleased with the build quality.

No tool fits everyone. The WORX WG771, for instance, comes with two power settings (Power and Eco) and offers 7 cutting height positions (1-1/4″-4″). The downside is charging time is slow. The 3-in-1 lawn mower by EGO Power+ features turbo charger. Charging will only take 30 minutes. The wider 20” deck will reduces the number of passes and time to mow your lawn. If you are in the market for a well built, easy to adjust electric lawn mower, then it is something you should check out.
