Gasoline-powered lawn mowers certainly pack the torque necessary to get the job done, but the Ego mower offers just as much oomph while eliminating all those tedious extraneous factors that come into play while dealing with gas mowers.
When using gas, consumers have a lot to consider. Of course, there's the negative impact on the environment, but even on a more immediately level, gas-powered mowers have drawbacks. For one, buying gas is far more expensive than using electricity, and further, dealing with gas and oil can be dirty and frustrating. The Ego mower uses a lithium battery to cut down on gas, oil, and noise while offering comparable power.
Adding to the practical benefits, the Ego mower has a clever folding design that reduces the space it takes up in one's garage.
