Can you imagine powering through your lawn with no ‘cord-hassles’ whatsoever, and yet attaining a picture-perfect turf? With the Ego Power+ LM2001 Cordless Lawn Mower, this is definitely not so far-fetched! With its ultra-sleek design and phenomenal cutting power (thanks to the rapid charging Lithium Ion Battery), this eco-friendly lawn mower is far ahead of its competitors. Well-equipped with mulching, bagging and a chute for side-discharge, the 20-inch cutting deck has a well-synchronized set of tough stainless steel blades which drastically reduce the number of passes you need to make with even the thickest grass. This electric mower’s foldable design and weather-proof finish make it all the more alluring for urban home owners with limited storage space.

In-depth Review of the Ego Power Plus LM2001 Cordless Lawn Mower

Ease of Use

The Ego Power+ LM2001 Cordless Lawn Mower has an exceptionally sleek design that’ll leave you awed when you unpack the shipment. The fact that it comes almost fully-assembled, is the icing on the cake, and you simply have to attach the handle and rear bag. But it’s not the ‘modern gizmo look’ but the wonderful ergonomics that’ll have you marveling this electric lawn mower! With dimensions of around 17” x 23” x 45”, it’s really compact and easy to drag around (this despite the fact that it weighs around 60 pounds, which is neither too heavy nor too light) But still, using this mower for your weekly lawn-snipping routine is a sheer cakewalk. Just 30 minutes of charging, and it’s good to go for any kind of task- slight trimming, heavy cutting and even wading through sloping turfs. You needn’t care about drying it clean, thanks to its rugged outdoorsy finish, and it folds up real neat to occupy very little space in your shed.

 

 

Cut Quality

Since it’s my business to provide first-hand, authentic and reliable info to my clients, I don’t shirk away from putting my newly purchased mowers to the most rigorous of cutting tests. Especially if the model is higher-priced, I’d like to find out for you if it’s worth your buck or not, in terms of its core functionality. I used the Ego Power+ LM2001 Cordless Lawn Mower on several tough grass species like Zoysia, some stretches of Bermuda Grass and Festuca. The 21-inch cutting deck did a commendable job, and the mulching was equally good (unlike many other models that create a total mess!) If you are to opt for bagging, then you’d have to empty the rear bag approximately once every 20-25 minutes. I’d say that’s absolutely fine for mowing an area up to half an acre!

 

Height Adjustment

EGO Power+ height adjustment

You can choose between 5 height positions ranging from 1.2 – 3.5 inches

This is pretty much standard, and you’ll be familiar with the workings if you’ve used any kind of electric mower in the past. It’s a simple, one-lever mechanism to change the height you want to operate at. In case of this Ego Power Cordless Mower, there are 5 variations you can chose from 1.2 to 3.5 inches, depending on how tall your grass is and what kind of finish you require.

 

Motor Power

If you’ve been using a gas-run mower for years, it’s a tough call to altogether shift to an electric mower. It’s even tougher to identify a battery-operated mower with gas-equivalent performance (without being a money-trap in terms of frequent battery-replacement costs). But let me assure you that the much-coveted Ego Power+ Cordless Mower is really exceptional in this regard. The Advanced Arc-Lithium 4 Ah 56V battery with Rapid Charger exudes fantastic power for a complete run of 40-45 minutes and needs to be charged only for half an hour, which is by far the lowest charging time amongst the battery-operated lawn mowers I’ve used. What’ more amazing is that the high torque magnetic motor generates 600 Watts, and if you wish to use the 5 AH battery, you get a run-time of one hour! It would cost you a little more, but that’s what you need if your yard goes beyond half an acre.

By the way, if you like some extra pushing help, you can also opt for the self-propelled 21 inch version of this same mower.

Maintenance

Yet another impressive aspect of the Ego Power+ LM2001 is its generous warranty coverage, which spans 5 years for the mower, which includes parts, labor and electrical issues. The battery and rapid charger on the other hand, are covered for 3 years. Having regularly used this electric lawn mower for almost five and a half months now, it’s as good as new. I’m glad that there are no maintenance hassles which are some prominent in oil or gas-based mowers such as fuel mixing, malfunctioning spark plugs, pull cords etc. This machine is just so simple, comfy and low maintenance!

 

Cost Effectiveness

A number of buyers would shirk away from buying the Ego Power+ LM2001 Cordless Lawn Mower, on the basis of its price-alone. But as a Lawn Mowing Pro with tons of experience, I’d like to highlight the fact that there’s plenty of value you’re getting for the money you spend. For starters, this mower uses Lithium Ion batteries, which don’t function like normal batteries that start to die within a year of operation. (that’s exactly why the company has the battery kit covered by a 3-year warranty, which is unparalleled) So you can reap all the incredible benefits of a user-friendly, quiet and non-fuming mower, while it does its job unto perfection!

    This is my first cordless mower so I can only compare it to a gas mower. It has enough power to get the job done. It mulches really well. It does not pick up dead leaves as well as my old mower but it clips the grass really small. I have a 1/5 acre lot and it will cut the whole thing on one charge. It is very light weight and is not too hard to push. It is a little harder than I thought but not too bad. I love that it starts up with the push of a button. It does not die when the grass is long it just slows down. I like the light on the front. I can cut the grass in the evening when it is cooler.

    + PROS: It does a good job of cutting if you walk slow. If you walk fast it missing spots and you have to go over it again.
    - CONS: I don't like the handle. It only has two adjustments. Too long and too high. You can only use the mower with the handle extended all the way out. It would be nice if the mower would work on multiple length settings.
