  • Reviews say the EGO Power+ LM2000-S works well with different sizes of batteries made by the same brand. Even the smallest battery is good enough for small yards. If you've got a bigger yard or tougher jobs to do, the larger batteries can handle those tasks without a problem. (27 reviews)

2 reasons not to buy

  • Some customers didn't know that the EGO Power+ LM2000-S is sold without a battery and charger. This led to extra unexpected costs if they didn't already have compatible EGO batteries. (8 reviews)

    • “PLEASE KEEP IN MIND THE $329 is LAWNMOWER ONLY!! I missed that part of description and to return to amazon is about $40. If you dont have a battery already from another ego tool buy the one that comes with 5ah batter and charger for $399 or you will pay several hundred dollars more for battery and charger.”

    • “Now I have to wait more days and pay $0ver 500 more for a battery and charger.”

    • “My only disappointment is that it didn't come with the battery and charger and I had to buy each separately.”

    • “No battery?! As if it's not expensive enough, now I have to buy a $100 plus battery?!”


    • “Especially considering that the battery costs almost half of the total cost of the mower (mower w/ battery = $750 retail / battery alone = $350 retail).”

    • “We eventually added the trimmer and hedge cutter. But now the battery has died again, and because it is out of warranty, we have to pay $250 for a new one - which we will not do.”

    • “EGO’s replacement batteries cost more than 1/2 the price of buying a new mower — like the one above except with the battery and charger included.”

  • Some users note that the mower is not as powerful as traditional gas mowers or even some corded electric mowers. (7 reviews)

    • “I was only able to do about 40% of a pass each time, because I had to walk really really slowly to do any more than that.”

    • “I have mowed three times now with this mower, and like it. It isn't as powerful as a gas mower, nor even as powerful as a corded electric I have owned, but works well”

    • “Was NOT able to cut a 2 inch patchy lawn. Poor power output.”

    • “I figured there was no way the electric mower would be as strong as my 6.25hp gas mower, but I gathered from reviews that it might be close, so I figured I'd give it a shot.”

    • “It cutting off when the grass is to thick can be quite a drawback as well”

    • “First, it's not a gas mower, and you won't get the same torque. This means taller grass, and thicker spots, simply don't cut as well.”

    • “It is ridiculously weak. Healthy grass will bog the motor, even if it's only cutting 1 to 2 inches of length off.”

Bottom Line

The EGO Power+ LM2000-S is a versatile, battery-powered lawn mower that's a hit with folks who have other EGO tools. Swap batteries easily and tackle any yard size. It's mighty, managing thick grass with ease, especially with the 5Ah battery. It's quieter than gas mowers, light to maneuver, and a breeze to store. Comes with handy attachments for different mowing needs. But watch out, it's sold without a battery or charger, and might not match gas mower power for some.
