    • “You got to remember to keep good grip on handle grips or it shuts off.”

    • “Only negative I have so far is the switch is a little sensitive. Need to keep it squeezed tight or mower shuts off.”

    • “The charger has a loud fan and battery usually doesn't charge right on first try.”

  • Replacement parts, like mower blades, are hard to find or have been out of stock for a long time, which can be a big hassle for keeping the mower in good shape. (2 reviews)

    • “ECHO does not have any replacement mower blades available. For 2 years now.”

    • “However I ran over a rock and nicked the blade and cannot find a replacement, it is out of stock at Home Depot and all other websites.”

Bottom Line

The Echo CLM-58V4AH is a user-friendly electric mower. It's quiet, lightweight, and simple to operate, making yard work easier. It starts with a button and cuts most lawns effectively, with a durable deck and good mulching. Plus, it's low-maintenance and shares batteries with other Echo tools. However, it can struggle with tall grass, needs a firm grip to operate, and has a loud battery charger. Finding replacement parts may also be tough. Good for regular lawn care, not for rough terrain.
