any gurus made the jump over to cordless-electric for your mowing and/or trimming?

recently picked up the 21" self propelled mower w/7.5Ah battery.  i've cut my lawn twice within past 7 days and the battery indicator is still green.  mind you, our city lot is only 63x104 and Mrs has the back mostly done over with garden, and creeping out to the front.

gotta say, i think i really like this thing.  adjustable throttle too.  i mean drive wheels, not blade.  it's kooky. but really comfortable and easy to use.  and so far i'm quite stoked at the capacity of the rear bag too.  my old gas mower would have had to have been dumped a few times,, whereas i did front and back and had room left.

no, i haven't used the headlights for night mowing.  admittedly, i am curious how well they illuminate tho.

already posted my gas-powered mower and Stihl trimmer for sale as i anticipate the release of the ego powerhead with trimmer, edger, and 5Ah battery kit.  i think HD in the US already has this, but we're always behind.  altho i did find a place way over in Edmonton, Alberta that has these goodies.

I have their string trimmer, blower and hedge trimmer. I quit using gas versions and don't miss it at all. The EGO products are great and just as powerful as gas versions. I have a zero turn mower, so I haven't any need for their mower but I have heard nothing but good things about it. The batteries for my tools are holding up great, I think they have really figured out how to make the LI On batteries last. The powerhead sounds like a real winner, I wish they had it when I got all mi tools, would have saved me some money.

If I'm reading the web page correctly, one battery fits and runs all the power tools listed?

Yes, their battery design is interchangeable in all their tools. They also make different power level batteries but they are all interchangeable.

I also appreciate that during the online registration of this mower, that I was asked to register the battery and the charger in addition. Can honestly say I've not been asked that before.

Looking forward to picking up the leaf blower with 2.5Ah battery this weekend to receive the free additional battery (HD Canada)

 Mind you, it's only the 2.0Ah as the freebie. But hey,  free battery.

I bought an Ego 56 volt string trimmer a year ago. Got tired of my old finicky gas trimmer.

 

So far it has been just as useful and up to the task for my small yard.

I have the kobalt 80v lineup of tools and have been amazingly impressed with them the last two years or so.

 

I have the chainsaw, string trimmer, and blower. I maintain an acre and do mother in laws city lot weekly with them. Great battery run time and power. In fact I like them so much when my push mower that I leave at my MIL dies I'm going to get the 80v mower.

 

I have a gas riding lawnmower for my place, but outside of that I have absolutely no desire to use gas power tools anymore. Who knows when it goes out there might be an electric riding mower for a reasonable price, can't get onboard with the new Ryobi just yet for 2500 bucks. All my gas power tools have been given away or discarded.

For the record, I'm not some tree hugger save the earth type. the biggest factor for me is that something works when I go to use it. On top of that what appealed to me  is the gas comparable power that lithium ion tools make nowadays, not mixing gas or performing maintenance on each item, and not having a small 2 or 4 cycle screaming in my ear when I go to use it.

 

ive used battery powered mowers and I think that if people tried them, they would gladly change. As for me I'm waiting for the gas push mower I have to go out and it's an easy decision to go to a battery powered one.
