Gas-powered mowers have long been the standard way to take care of your lawn, but there’s a new sheriff in town–and it’s battery-operated. We know that EGO Lawn Mower Black Friday Deals 2021 a perfectly-cut lawn is a precious thing and that you may be hesitant to switch to something new, so we put the EGO 56-Volt Lithium-ion Cordless Mower to the test in our own backyard. We review the mower’s performance, battery life and price.
EGO Lawn Mower Black Friday Deals 2021 – Buying Guide
The mower, a 5.0Ah 56V battery, charger, grass collection bag and mulching accessory were all included in the box. The box also contained three manuals, one each for the charger, the battery and the mower. Although the manuals were easy to understand, there were pages that could have had more detailed instructions or written directions. It wasn’t too difficult, since there’s not much setup required. Most of the information is self-explanatory.
The lawn mower was ready for use in ten minutes. The battery terminal door can be found on the front of your mower. It pops open easily so that you don’t need to flip it over or struggle with any screws or latches. It is easy to insert the battery. The blade slides in and clicks into place by applying a little pressure. It’s just as simple to release the battery. You can remove the battery and recharge it by pressing the release button.
Only one thing was required to set up the grass collection bag. This took only three minutes. After the bag was attached to its frame, it clipped easily onto the mower’s back and was held in place. You can also use the mulching accessory and the side discharge chute in place of the grass collection bag.
Design: Modern and sleek
We were immediately impressed by the EGO lawnmower when it arrived in the box. It has a sleek, stylish design and because the majority of the body is made out of plastic, it’s extremely lightweight–especially when compared to traditional mowers. The EGO’s plastic body is complemented by 9-inch plastic wheels, which seem sturdy enough to push through even the most unmanicured lawns.
We were concerned about the plastic’s ability to withstand inevitable bumps and dings. This was especially important as it would be stored in a garage alongside other items. The EGO mower’s lightweight makes it less durable than metal mowers. This could prove to be a benefit, since plastic is weather-resistant and won’t rust as much as metal. Time will reveal the truth, we think.

The EGO lawnmower operates without the need for priming or multiple start attempts. Once you have extended the handle fully, push the start button to ignite the motor. This feature was our favorite because it eliminated the need to struggle with a gas-powered mower trying to get it started. This is a huge benefit for those who don’t have much manual dexterity.
The EGO lawnmower operates without the need for priming or multiple start attempts, unlike pull-start mowers that require several try before they are up and running.
It is also quieter than other mowers. The mower’s motor was quieter than most, so we were able talk at a higher volume than usual.
Pushing, pulling and turning the lawn mower were easy once it was started. The battery provided almost as much torque as we’ve seen from most of the gas-powered lawn mowers we’ve used. We were happy to give up some power in exchange for cleaner air, as the battery did not emit any gas fumes. We could smell fresh-cut grass when we mowed. This is something that was lost in the gas fumes from traditional mowers. Because the mower was lightweight, it made it easy to go up and downhill without having to fight the weight.
EGO mowers have a 21 inch cutting capacity. The minimum cutting height is 1.5 inches, and the maximum cutting height is 4 inches. You have six height settings (numbered one through six). The knob lever on the side of your mower allows you to toggle between different heights. It is easy to use, spring-loaded, and easy to adjust. Simply pull and adjust the lever to get going.
To test the cutting power at different lengths, we set the blade at different heights. We were not disappointed. The grass blades were cut perfectly at 40-45 degrees for a professional look. Grass lines came out clean and sharp and the lawn mower had no issue taking 6-inch grass blades down to 3 inches.
Although the mower did occasionally stall in areas with too much grass or rain, this was minor and to be expected when there is a longer time between mows. Despite the longer grass, the chute did not clog and the grass went straight into the bag.
Battery Life: Long enough for the job
The battery was at 25% right out of the box. It took about 40 minutes for the battery to fully charge after it was locked into the charging station. Although it took a little longer than the manufacturer claimed, it was still quite quick. The battery must be charged before the mower can work. This is in contrast to gas mowers, which can be started at a moment’s notice.
One battery charged was enough to mow an acre of our yard (back, front, & side). We even had power left over.
A sensor on the charger tells you when your battery is at 25, 50, 75, 75, or 100 percent. We thought this was a nice touch. The built-in fan of the charger creates a sound similar to the noise the lawnmower makes when it is running while charging. It’s a minor problem that doesn’t really matter to us. However, it is something you should be aware of in case you don’t have a designated place to charge your battery. You’ll hear the fan hum when you charge your battery in the kitchen. However, we consider it a fair trade as the fan was created to prevent the battery’s overheating during charging. We’re happy to tolerate some noise for safety reasons.
Cleaning up and storage: Fast and simple
The grass bag features a hard plastic base and tight mesh sides, making it easy to clean up. You don’t have to do much more than removing the cut grass from the bag.
You can also fold the handle flat so that the EGO is smaller when not in use. If you have limited space, you can store the mower on the floor or against a wall. We loved this feature because we don’t have much shed or garage space for a mower.
The EGO Lawn Mower Black Friday Deals 2021 is a great choice if you are looking to move away from traditional gas-powered lawnmowers and into something more user-friendly and eco-friendly. The EGO cordless mower is lightweight and has impressive cutting power without the hassle and expense associated with using gasoline.
