Is the Ego Power+ self-propelled lawn mower  right for you?

It's an excellent pick for any yard with a quarter acre of grass, and a really good prospect for most yards up to a half acre. Those with larger yards and difficult terrain could make it work, but either a second battery or a recharge break would be required to complete the job.
