REASONS TO AVOID
-Pretty damn weighty
There's no two ways about it – this green reaper is a monster. It weighs almost as much as a petrol-driven machine but then it does come equipped with a gargantuan 7.5Ah, 56-volt Li-Ion battery that looks like a powerup from Halo.
Also onboard are vari-speed self propulsion and LED headlights for… er, gardening at night? If you have about half an acre of lawn to mow and can't be arsed with pushing, then this is the model for you.
Its wide 50cm blade – biggest on test – scythes through everything with aplomb and keeps on going for up to 45 minutes on a single charge.
The huge 60-litre grass collector, meanwhile, ensures fewer trips to the compost heap. The Ego also folds up surprisingly small and can be stored upright, or – if you have the muscles of Hercules and can lift it – on your garage wall.
