More than 1100 buyers have left five-star reviews of the LM2101 on Home Depots website. Austing wrote a review after a year-and-a-half of ownership and was impressed with how lightweight and quiet it is. He shared a story of hitting a metal pipe in his yard with the mower. It damaged the electronics and EGO sent him a brand new mower to replace it. Buyers also appreciate that the battery only takes about 40 minutes to recharge from dead.
For the past three years we have used the Greenworks 22502 Corded Lawn Mower on our ¼-acre lawn. We particularly like how easy it is to adjust the blade height and it is surprisingly light. There are just a couple negatives we have noticed. We live in the Pacific Northwest where mowing wet grass is unavoidable. When the grass is wet it does not feed into the bag of this mower easily. Also we had to replace the cord after my teenager ran over it with the mower. So cord control is important and takes a little planning.
Other buyers comment that the mower feels and look like a toy. It seems flimsy. But they also found it could handle child-swallowing yard growth. One of the coolest features of the Toro Recycler 22-inch Personal Pace Variable Speed Gas Walk Behind Self Propelled Lawn Mower that kept coming up in our research is the blade-brake clutch. This allows you to stop the blade without stopping the motor of the mower which is helpful for moving debris out of the way.
