The EGO LM2102SP Cordless Lawn Mower is an excellent alternative to traditional gas-powered mowers. As an electric mower, it does not require gas or oil, eliminating harmful fumes and potential spills. It is one of the best electric lawn mowers we reviewed, because it offers comparable power to gas lawn mowers and cuts through tough grass with ease and efficiency.

This cordless lawn mower comes equipped with a single 56-volt lithium-ion battery that provides up to 60 minutes of power to the mower, depending, of course, on the height and thickness of your grass. Lithium-ion batteries, on average, take two hours or more to recharge. The EGO LM2102SP's battery, however, has a 40-minute recharge time, which is the fastest recharge time of all of the mowers we tested.

The battery weighs over 6 pounds, which is heavier than other batteries, but it is still manageable. There is also a battery indicator so that as you mow, you can check the display to see how much power is remaining. This makes it easy to gauge when you will need to recharge the battery.

EGO, the manufacturer, recommends using this electric lawn mower for larger size yards (up to 1/3 acre). If you have a bigger yard, it doesn't necessarily mean you can't use this lawn mower, just that you should plan on some extra time to recharge the battery before you finish.

The EGO LM2102SP has a generous 21-inch cutting width, which is on par with the best electronic lawn mowers. This wide cutting path allows you to mow your lawn more quickly than a mower with a smaller width, as you don't have to make as many passes to mow your yard.

This electric mower offers five cutting heights ranging from 1.5 inches to 4 inches. This allows you to get the best cut possible for multiple types of grasses, and because of its extra battery power, long grass is not much of a problem for the EGO LM2102SP.

You can adjust the mower's deck height with a lever that lets you raise or lower the cutting deck with only one hand. The simplicity of the design helps keep the blades cutting evenly.

The mower starts up with the push of a button, a big improvement over exhausting pull cords. This model is also self-propelled, which is nice if you have a large lawn or have trouble pushing a lawn mower. You can bag your grass clippings or use the side discharge chute. The clippings bag attaches to the rear of the mower and has a wide mouth, making it easy to empty. The mower also gives you a mulching option that chops up the grass into fine pieces and drops them back onto the lawn.

It is easy to maneuver this 58-pound mower, even with a full bag of heavy grass. Many gas mowers weigh between 70 and 90 pounds, so the EGO is a good choice for anyone wanting a lightweight mower. In addition to its light weight, this cordless lawn mower comes with large, 9-inch wheels on its base, which helps you easily maneuver over higher cuts of grass and tight corners.

When you are finished mowing, the handlebar collapses down and you can stand the mower up on end without having to prop it against anything. The built-in handle on the front of the cutting deck gives you a secure place to lift the EGO LM2102SP when you need to move or store it.

EGO offers a five-year warranty for this model, which is one of the longer warranty periods offered by an electric lawn mower manufacturer. You can download a user manual or order parts on the EGO website.

In the event you have a question or problem, you can reach EGO by phone. EGO also has an online community where you can post questions and discuss problems or ideas with other EGO equipment owners.

Unfortunately, if your mower needs to be repaired, you're limited in where you can take it. You'll need to contact the manufacturer directly, and representatives will give you the name and location of a nearby service shop. This can be inconvenient, as it requires you to call during business hours rather than locating a service center online.

While this lawn mower is the best of the best, if you're looking for a bargain, check out our value pick - Earthwise 60420.

The EGO LM2102SP is one of the best electric lawn mowers available, and its powerful, long-lasting battery helps it cut even the toughest lawns. Its light weight and wide cutting path make it an electric mower definitely worth considering for your lawn care needs.
