Answer: 
Yes, I don't use my grass catcher at all. I mulch only. Now it does not have a high lift blade so the mulching isn't as "fine" as you see on some very high end mulching mower. But it is good enough that it doesn't bale either.

Answer: 
The mechanism that operates the mower blade is independent of the mechanism that engages the self propelled feature. If a charged battery is installed in the mower, you can "self propel" the mower forward without the blade engaged just by clutching the lever that engages the self propelling mechanism. The blade motor does not need to be engaged to engage the self propelling motor.

The self-propelled feature and blades are operated by separate controls. It sounds like you figured out how to operate the self-propelled feature. To operate the blade, fully deploy and lock the handle, depress the green button in the center of the handle grip while simultaneously pulling back on the black lever.

That's the same starting procedure you would use for a gasoline engine, with the exception that for a gasoline engine you'd pull the bail back first. The bail is a safety feature that must be held against the handle for the engine to run. It ensures that the blade will not turn unless a person is behind the mower and holding the handle, similar to a dead man's switch. Read Less

Answer: 
I will be honest - I have never worn protective glasses or a face shield when I mow with any mower and very few people do. However, I realize that debris can be in the path of the mower at any time and it could get thrown out and hit the operator. It's not a bad idea to wear face protection for this reason. It is a lot worse to get hit in the face than any other part of the body.

The need to wear or not wear face protection with this mower would be the same for this as any other push mower (gas or electric). If you have never worn face protection with any other mower you have owned or used, then not using face protection with this mower won't present any unique dangers than not wearing face protection with any other mower did.

21 in. 56-Volt Lithium-Ion Cordless Battery Self Propelled Mower is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 923.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I needed. Over the past two years I've two major surgeries, open heart and then back. I have a very good self propelled Toro 6.5hp but my doctor said it was heavy for me to carry up and down my basement stairs. I needed a lawn mower that had the same power and self propelled but lighter and compact. I read the reviews on a number of mowers and chose the EGO+ self propelled. Now that I've had it a few weeks, I must say this mower is everything the ad. say it is. It's powerful, lightweight, folds to a compact size, easy to roll up and down my basement stairs and do a better job of cutting my grass. For me it was a best buy and I would recommend it to all my friends and family, hands down. (Now ask me how I feel about it after a year of use. LoL!)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This is an expensive push mower, so buying it requires good reason. So, I thought I would share m... This is an expensive push mower, so buying it requires good reason. So, I thought I would share my story: Was sick of my gas lawn and garden equipment. I was spending more time trying to diagnose and fix problems and clean carburetors than actually get work done. I live on over a half acre with a lawn that is more weeks than grass, sloping, and with 6 large maples 1 large ash and several ornamental/fruit trees (meaning lots of obstacles). I was really nervous about going from a 18 hp craftsmanlawn tractor with a 42" inch deck to a 21" push mower. I knew I would be adding a lot of time to my mowing by making the switch. I also know that push mowing in the heat and humidity of an Indiana summer is not easy, so I wanted some help (self-propelled) . I was excited about not having to change oil or keep gas in the garage. Most importantly as I get older and have less time and energy to exercise I thought going back to a walking mower would be better for me, especially one where I was not constantly walking into and breathing a cloud of small-engine exhaust. I decided to try the ego due to the large battery available and good reviews. First season with the ego power self propelled: -excellent engineering - so much forethought went into the design. It is one of the best designed products I have ever come across. Mower handle bar position can be changed to suit users of different heights. - grass cutting is sufficiently powered, but I often don't feel I am getting a even cut...not a problem for me, but might bug some. - mulching is top notch, no more raking or bagging leaves for me. Can handle pretty less than quarter inch branches well but these seem to take a toll on the blade over time. I never have used the bagger becaise the mulching works so well - battery - The battery life is variable and depends on many factors ( grass length, mulching, how wet the grass is, deck height, how much propulsion assistance you use). I bought the mower that comes with the 7.5 amp battery and fast charger from a local big box store. It is very heavy. I also purchased the string trimmer that came with a 2.5 amp battery (from Amazon) which I highly recommend. I start with the 2.5 amp battery in the mower, deplete it, put the 2 amp battery on the charger while I finishmowing with 7 amp battery. Then by the time I am done mowing the 2 amp battery is fully charged for trimming. -self propulsion - this is my first self-propelled mower. so when I was buying this mower I asked my co-workers if they had any experience with self-propelled mowers. Several had them in the past and hated them because they never seemed to have a speed that matched their desired pace. I found that this is not a problem with the ego power mower. It is not gear based, thus allows for fine tuning of the pace. I mostly use it towards the end of my mowing as I begin to get tired. It makes finishing the job much easier when the weather is unfriendly. -storage - folds up so saves space in the garage. -ease of use - again fantastic design makes it easy to operate. However the 7 amp battery adds significant weight. - no gas or oil to deal with. No exhaust to breath in. - quiet! - can mow without hearing protection, can speak on the phone or listen to music while mowing You will have to unlearn some habits from your gas mower. For example is okay to stop the engine if something is in the way of the mower. It starts effortlessly so there's no reason to awkwardly attempt to bend around the mower while trying to keep the.mower running to try and pull a branch away from the front of the mower because you are used to being afraid of having trouble getting it to start again if you let go of the handle. It is really great to have and I could never go back to gas mowers or string trimmers. If problems arise I will definitely update my review.
Date published: 2016-11-05
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Poor Mulch Cutting When my old gas lawn mower called it quit, I had to make some choices with a new lawn mower. One of the "main" reasons why I decided to purchase an EGO 21" Self-Propelled lawn mower, was due to the success of my first EGO 15" trimmer. I also like the idea of having a "battery operated" lawn mower, with the power of a "gas" lawn mower. In addition, not having to deal with gas, oil, air filter, and yearly maintenance was "super attractive" to me - trying to be eco friendly, not a tree hugger by any stretch of the imagination. That said; I bought my new lawn mower in early July 2016 and have been using it once, sometimes twice a week, depending on how fast my grass is growing. Before rushing in to write a review on this lawn mower, I wanted to spend enough time using it, to get a better feel for the lawn mower. After 45 days of using this new lawn mower, I am sad to say that I returned the lawn mower for a full refund. Since I "mulch cut" 98% of the time, for the benefits of my grass, this lawn mower would leave a "trail of clippings" on the left side of the lawn mower every time! Before buying this lawn mower, I spent a lot of time on the Home Depot web site reviewing all the comments from other owners of this lawn mower. Therefore, I was shocked that no one else had this issue with their EGO. I also posted this question on the EGO Community Forum and found that several other owners experienced the same issue. After hours of more research, I believe this lawn mower does a great job with most lawn. But if you have "really thick" grass like mine, you will experience the same issue. The one time I did bagged my clippings, the lawn mower did a good job with this. Therefore, if bagging is your normal way of cutting grass, then this lawn mower will be a good choice for you. But if you "mulch" cut most of the time, then you might have an issue with this lawn mower. Overall, I think EGO built a "solid" battery operated lawn mower, with the torque of a gas lawn mower. Therefore, if you are thinking of switching away from gas, then consider EGO or any other companies. For me, a "clean" cut is important so I will continue on with another gas lawn mower instead!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from CUTS POORLY Mower is lightweight easy to use. However, does not do well cutting Bermuda grass. The lawn is cut twice a week so cutting height is not an issue. The mower at times will dig into the grass with a ripping sound leaving only dead grass talons (See photo). Leaves an uneven cutting path (cuts slightly deeper on one side). I have replaced the blade without any success, Measured the height of the deck front and back measures ok. Have been using the neighbors gas mower to cut the front yard great results. I can not with a conscience try to sell the mower knowing how poorly it cuts Bermuda grass

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Frustrated and Disappointed! I am returning this lawnmower because it's mulching and bagging performance is sub-par. I really wanted to find a way to make it work for me because I like all of the other features, but it does not even mulch as well as my old 1996 Toro Super Recycler. I live in Minnesota and have Kentucky Bluegrass that is what I consider "lush". I've tried all the tricks of waxing the bottom to reduce grass sticking to the underside, mowing more frequently, ensuring the grass is dry, etc., and it still drops grass in the left wheel tracks when mulching and sometimes drops grass under the deck (see photos). The cut is very nice; it just doesn't mulch well. My old Toro would do this occasionally as well, but not to the extent of this mower. So, I tried the bagger. The mower will occasionally leave cut grass in the right wheel tracks when bagging and the vacuum is not good. It does not suck up all of the leaves or grass, but it will completely fill the bag. To me, this is also unacceptable for the occasions when I want to vacuum up the falling leaves. It takes me 45 minutes to mow my lawn and the battery lasts the whole time, even with using the self-propelled feature the whole time. I've been able to mow it twice (cutting up the dropped un-mulched grass the second time) on one charge before the red warning light came on (7.5Ah battery). To me, this is impressive. I just shouldn't have to mow it twice! If you are not so concerned about a cut with no dropped grass, this would be a great mower for you. If you are concerned about a clean lawn, this mower is not for you. My wife's comments are that it is very easy to mow with and is not tiring, even without the self-propel feature. Pros: Very quiet - can hold a conversation while mowing without shouting Nice and light weight Easy to maneuver Cuts the grass evenly Long lasting battery - 90 minutes on my lawn with self-propelled the whole time Large rear wheels make it easy to use when trimming or turning on a hill Easy to switch between mulching and bagging Easy to use bagger Easy to use self-propel feature - even works when blade is not spinning Self-propel works well up steep hills Convenient to store standing up on end - saves garage space Easy battery insertion and removal Fully charges empty battery in an hour Easy to change mower height - all wheels at once No warm-start problems of gas mowers - it's electric and starts right away Cons: Leaves grass trail on left wheel track in mulching mode Sometime drops the whole deck worth of grass in mulching mode Leaves grass trail on right wheel track in bagging mode Does not vacuum grass or leaves well in bagging mode

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A very impressive electric mower. I was amazed at the ease of use. First of all I love how it 'folds up' to fit in the shed, taking up very little room. You know how the handle always sticks way out blocking your path or preventing the bicycle from squeezing in tightly. There's a lot of wasted space there. Not so with this mower. You push the telescoping top part into the lower part and fold it over itself. Very easy, very compact. Then there's the unique feature of being able to 'walk the mower' without the blade spinning. So you come to a garden hose and rather than having to wrestle under it, you stop the mower squeeze the wheel handle and walk right over it, sans spinning blade...no danger of cutting the hose. I do that with mole hills too. A feature that my wife really likes is the ability to adjust the wheels with one simple adjustment. Up or down...very easy. There's no trying to adjust each wheel separately and struggling to get them perfectly even. The battery lasts a surprisingly long time too and I'm amazed at how much the self-propelled wheels pull you along. There is no 'blade slow-down' when the wheels are engaged. Just today, my wife wanted to mow. She says, "You know, I just realized I don't have to check the oil every time and fill it with gas." Indeed, I'm not having to buy a can of gas as often anymore. I looked at quite a few EGO Mower reviews before I bought it. I was somewhat skeptical over how well the mower would do in taller grass, like my field, which we have always cut with a DR Brush Cutter. The EGO ran very well, so well that I lowered the wheels from a 4 to a 3.5 setting. My wife and I have always been aware of our carbon footprint. This day, the day we tried out the EGO Self-Propelled mower, the Fourth of July, we are proud to be able to say, we could mow the yard and field without producing carbon emissions.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor Mulching, Low Suction PROS: No gas, oil, or fumes Quiet Bags well CONS: Poor mulching Low suction Expensive Blade measures just over 20", not 21" This lawn mower does not mulch well. It leaves stripes of long grass clippings along the left side of the mower. These stripes can be dealt with by running the mower over them, but then you are mowing your lawn 1.5 - 2 times every time. The mower also has very little suction. It does not vacuum up leaves, and any grass that is laying over stays that way as the mower passes over it. A mower needs to generate enough vertical airflow to stand the blades of grass up to be cut, and this EGO does not do so. The lack of lift is likely contributing to the poor mulching performance as well.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from You DO NOT get a side discharge adapter. I purchased this mower because it was supposed to have a side discharge as well as bag and mulching. Well I get it home and there's no side discharge piece in the box. They hold it hostage until you go through this huge, annoying registration process online. I'm talking about sending them a copy of your receipt and writing down all the serial numbers of all the different parts. I'm surprised they didn't want a swab of my DNA. Then ONLY after you do all that will they send it to you in the mail. Well it's been 3 months and still no side discharge adapter.
