I've never owned a gas mower. I used a rotary push mower for years, then a "Rally" corded electric mower. I used it with a cord for 5-6 years, then added a 120v pack of Gates lead-acid "D" cells to make it cordless, and used it another 5-6 years that way. In fact, I still have some of those

We have owned two MTD gas powered lawn mowers. One was a MTD push type. The other was a Troy Built riding mower. Troy Built used to have an excellent reputation, but the one that we bought was built after MTD bought Troy Built. The MTD brand was by far the worst mower that I have owned or had

My e-mowers have been corded type, so no battery problems. However, the replacement motor I put in the B was a 36 volt and I ran it from a 10ah PIng lithium battery that I carried in a backpack, which made the mower much more maneuverable. I ran it that way for 4 seasons, until the motor

No experience with Stihl lawn mowers, but I have nothing but high praise for the brand. After years of getting (mostly) Black and Decker hedge trimmers, I bought a Stihl corded. It was expensive, but the Stihl made the B seem like a toy. We call it “The Monster”, and it has been just

I have been impressed with the Ego battery / charger system. I've been tracking my 7.5 AH battery degradation over time, and it looks reasonable for laptop style cells (I hit them relatively hard). https://www.summet.com/blog/2019/12/19/ego-battery-degradation-over-time-2-year-mark/ Jay On

No experience with Stihl electrics., but I do have 2-3 years experience using 2 EGO manual drive mowers (and 2 blowers). They're much better than the previous Pb-acid mower and corded mowers I have used. The 7.5 Ah 56v battery (14s3p, using 2.5Ah 18650 cells) (14 x 4.0v = 56v nominal, 14x4.2=58.8

No, never an Ego. I’ve had a Homelite, a Craftsman (I think made by Black and Decker), a few Black and Deckers (they never lasted, though the last one was a major improvement), and a few others. My first electric was a corded one in the late 60s, early 70’s. I couldn’t tell you the brand. -
