I’d be lying if I said I didn’t think this product looked cool. Lawn mower manufacturers have been traditionally known to use a familiar, bright red color, reminiscent of a fire engine, for decades. EGO has done a great job incorporating bright greens, grays, and blacks for an alternative from the traditional. The look is also a bit futuristic, as the battery is housed under an acrylic green shield.
Given that this was for a review, I made sure to put this lawn mower to the test and work it harder than I would normally with a lawn mower I purchased.
The 20” mower deck can be adjusted with a lever that’s found on the left side of the lawn mower. I had my 13-year-old daughter test it out to see how easily adjustable it was. For the most part, she had no trouble adjusting the deck through the five settings.
As it’s now spring, this also happened to be the first time this season that my lawn saw a mower. I still had leaves and small branches scattered around from before winter, and while I would usually clean all that up before taking a lawn mower to it, I left my lawn a mess to fully test EGO’s electric lawn mower. I set the mower deck to the lowest possible cutting height and left the grass catcher and mulcher attachments off, just to make the job slightly more difficult. I showed this mower no mercy.
