Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by BPH4LIFE This mower is so quiet it should be a crime. My only complaint is the mower is not strong enough to pick up kindling or other random items in the lawn. It mows the grass perfectly, is quiet, does not pollute like a gas mower. It met me needs in all areas except the twigs, leaves, and other small debris it does not pick up well. Purchase the 2nd battery, you will need it if you have a decent size yard. The 5 year warranty makes the battery purchase worth it. NO ONE warranties a battery 5 years, this makes the product really standout. Just make sure you register your product on Echo's site. Also, the mower comes set up in the Mulch mode, make sure you pull out the Mulcher device if you want to bag right off the bat. Wheel height adjustment is very easy to adjustment unlike most mowers on the market.

I have purchased the trimer, blower, and the mower. First of all I really like the trimmer and blower. I had problems with mower right out of the box, the mower would keep shutting off. I managed to get my yard mowed but mower shut itself off multiple times. The problem seems to be the switch that is attached to the handle bar, every time you move or wiggle the right red lever, the moter stops and you have to restart in order to continue mowing. After two calls to Echo customer service, they suggested that I take the mower to an Echo repair facilities where it would take up to 5 weeks for repair. Since I had only owned the mower for less than 2 days, I returned it Home Depot for a refund. I am trying to decide whether or not I will repurchase another mower.

The light weight and large wheels make this mower really easy to push. The hills in my front yard are easy to maneuver, even compared to my previous self-propelled gas push mower.
I really like how easy it is to turn the mower back on after I turn it off to pick up sticks in the yard.
Also the folding/locking handle bar and the handle behind the engine make this mower easy to move around my small shed.

Traded in the JDeere and one-acre for 1/4-acre and this Echo model. One battery charge lasts 1-1/2 mowings. Light weight housing is plastic and the mulching does not create any undercarriage accumulation. This means the clean up is efficient. Couple this with the collapsible handle feature and the ability to stand it vertically means little garage floor space is used. Each wheel requires the height setting which is the only downside I can find. Think of a loud fan as the noise level. Subscribe to the email feed and wait for the seasonal specials. Other Echo lawn care products use this same battery so I can envision myself chunking the gas trimmer as well.

The mower bogs down easily in southern lawns. Our St Augustine grass is thick and does not mulch well. The side discharge attachment is a special order and I had hoped that it would be included. I have not tried bagging the clippings. In heavy grass clumps gather at the ends of the blades and stop them against the side of the deck.
The unit is light and the deck is made out of plastic which should outlast any stamped steel deck that our previous gas mowers have had. It is very quiet. The battery lasts about 45 minutes with about an hour's time for charging.

I first bought the 16' Ryobi mower, but when I got it out of the box it was comical how small the bag was and how narrow the cutting width was. It looked like my kid's toy mower. I knew at that time that I couldn't go as cheap as I'd like and had to upgrade. I ended up getting this mower, which looked like a normal mower, but was way lighter. I have a 8800 sqft yard, and was able to cut it all on one battery charge. Checked at the end and there was one bar (out of 4) left for power. It was no problem pushing the mower due to how light it was, and it maneuvered fine, too. Also, the mower is easy to start up and fairly quiet. Nothing bad to say about this mower, I'd highly recommend it if you don't mind spending a bit more!

I bought this mower for my daughter and her new house. I ran it through the paces on our yard to make sure it worked ok while waiting for her to close. Sit on a just under 1/4 acre lot with Bermuda grass in front and St Augustine in the back. Battery went through about 3/4 of charge to complete. Back yard is really thick and mower never bogged down. Front is a lot of cutting and mower did shut down multiple times but after a few seconds of pause it would start right back up. Liked the light weight so my daughter shouldn't have any issues pushing it around. One drawback in that respect is there doesn't seem to be enough weight over the front wheels so mower doesn't cut well when pulling back on lightly rough terrain. The front wheels bounce quite a bit and leave the grass uneven. So far that is the only real drawback.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BillRhea1 Best mower!!
This is the best mower I have owned. Powerful enough to cut heavy grass. Lighter and easier to push than gas mowers. Added benefit is that when done it can be turned on its side to rinse off without worrying about gas leaking. No spark plugs to change. No gas and oil to worry about.
Now for the clincher. I had an issue with the charger. Called Echo and was immediately talking to a girl in South Carolina headquarters. Issue was immediately resolved to my complete satisfaction. Great customer service is as important as great product quality and Echo has both.
