Comparable to some of the best gas mowers. While the very best gas mowers, such as the Honda HRX217VKA (Est. $600), perform better, the EGO LM2102SP holds its own against other Recommended gas models in Consumer Reports' testing, earning Very Good ratings for bagging and mulching. Owners are even more impressed, downright ecstatic, in fact; nearly 2,800 Home Depot reviewers giving the LM2102SP high ratings across the board. Those who bought it just because they wanted to be more eco-friendly are blown away by its performance in cutting and bagging grass cleanly and neatly, as well as by its neat mulching performance. Those with smaller yards are most pleased, but a few say that they mow their front yard one day, their back the next, and are just as satisfied.
Doesn't get any simpler. According to reviewers, the EGO LM2102SP is easy to use right out of the box (once you charge the battery, of course). It's easy to assemble, push and handle. Testing backs up those user comments, and the LM2102SP earns Excellent scores for both ease of use and handling from Consumer Reports. Owners agree, saying this is the lightest, best handling, easiest to use mower they've ever owned. The self-propel feature can be adjusted from 1.8 to 3.6 mph, although a few say that, for them, that faster speed is like jogging while mowing. The six-position height adjustment is quick and easy -- one lever adjusts all four wheels in half-inch increments. The handlebars have a three-position height adjustment for shorter or taller users, and they fold down for storage. The mower is part of the EGO power+ series, which means it can share batteries with other, compatible, EGO outdoor power tools.
Is this thing on? Unlike most noisy, disruptive lawn mowers, the EGO LM2102SP is quiet enough to use when everyone else is asleep. While we saw no comments from experts on the noise level, owners had plenty to say -- and thanks to this quiet, quiet electric mower, you can hear them all. We saw no particular comments regarding safety -- or lack thereof -- with the EGO LM2102SP, but it's important to read the owner's manual for any mower and be conscious of the sharp blades underneath. Eye protection is also recommended.
