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.
I know that many people prefer to hose their mowers down with a garden hose. I admit I have done it. Still doing that is risky. If water gets into the wiring air filter or engine you could really do some damage. Hand washing with damp rag is a drag but also your safest bet.
EGO has two 21-inch deck 56-volt lithium-ion cordless battery mowers that are quite popular and share a number of similarities: the LM2101 and the LM2102SP. The major differences between the two are that the LM2102SP is self-propelled has a larger-capacity 7.5Ah battery and it costs $100 more. For the purposes of this review we are going to focus on the features they share in common.
