After months of thinking about it , reading reviews , talking to others ... I ordered a new EGO 21" 56 volt rechargeable lawn mower.   My old gas mower still starts on the first pull but the front wheel drive quit working several years ago, the handle is zip tied into place and the beast weights a ton ! I'm out of town 6 days a week this year ... the job of mowing the lawn has passed to my wife (she is not happy about it !)  A very light mower that needs no gas , has no rope to pull, starts with a button and hangs on the wall when not in use, seems like just the tool to make her and my life easier. I will post back with pictures and reviews after receiving and trying out this new tool. If I like it ... maybe there will be an ego 56 volt chainsaw in the future!  Edit/update Changed my order this morning to the 7.5 amp 21" self propelled model from home depot.

21" EGO self propelled 56 volt 7.5 amp battery and charger. First time use review is A+++ !!! The wife loves it. This thing is great ! Rear wheel drive that's  Fast .. like really fast, if you set it to be. One lever all wheel height adjustment, bagger or side discharge. Ran 45 minutes never missed a beat, was still at 25 % when she finished . Took 30 minutes to fully recharge. Quiet , really quiet !! sounds like a box window fan. You could mow at 5 AM and not bother anyone. Light, easy to push . No fuel no oil... nothing like the loud smelly, heavy gas mower. Heck you can tip it on its side to clean grass buildup without anything leaking out. Five stars for this one so far ! If I have issues that arise I will report back later.

Yes! if you are gonna mow, cordless electric is the way to go.  We got a different brand ( a kobalt  https://permies.com/t/55403/cordless-electric-Kobalt-lawn-mower) and love it.  It came with two batteries so one could be charging while the other mows.  No one complains about mowing anymore. I've practically ripped out my shoulder starting pull start gas mowers in the past and it's such a joy to mow with no gas fumes   
I envy the rear wheel drive in the ego though...if ours ever wears out that one might be next.

I have the EGO lawnmower, and I am completely satisfied with it. I also find the large battery and charger to be very useful when using my chainsaw and blower. The big battery isn't as prone to overheating and it holds twice as much power. The 2 Amp Hour batteries charged up in 15 minutes, when using the big charger.
