I have an Ego.

I have an Ego.

It actually took some reading the directions to figure out how to start the thing the first time and how to operate the self propelling part. Once started and moving I was a bit anxious and hopeful in equal measure. An electric motor makes so little noise it is hard to imagine it can do the work of the noisy and vibrational gas cousin. Our lot is hilly and takes about 45 minutes to mow the whole thing. I got through the whole yard without needing to recharge and discharged most of my anxiety. In self propelling mode it helped me all I wanted up the hills and cut and bagged as well as my gas mower. (Those bagged grass clippings are great stuff for mulching the garden or adding to the compost pile.)When it runs into thicker grass it amps up and has had no problem even around our compost which is a thick stand of grass and weeds.
