The easiest way to convey the features of the EGO Select Cut lawn mower comes by way of comparison to the previous model. One of the most visible changes includes a raked back battery insertion angle that lets you see the 5-segment charge indicators on newer EGO 56V batteries.
The EGO Self-Propelled Select Cut lawnmower kit includes a 56V 7.5 Ah battery pack and 60-minute rapid charger. You also get a dual-blade design for superior mulching and bagging. Not to be confused with a side-by-side cutting system, this blade design looks like a narrow ‘X’. The two blades work together to lift and cut grass into very fine pieces.
The EGO Select Cut mower has the same 52cm cutting deck as the prior model.
Start your engines
EGO made starting the mower even easier than before (if that’s possible). Instead of completely recessing the power-up button on the handle, you can now access it more naturally with your thumb before pulling back the bail bar. The front LED lights are activated from the handle as well – no more leaning down to turn them on.
Updated self-propelled mechanism
The updated self-propelled drive mechanism on this mower also works really well. Instead of a lever, EGO now features a centremounted speed dial. It sits smack-dab in the middle of the handle and sets the desired pace. It’s much more visible, easier to adjust, and has a more tactile feel when you’re using it.
To actually engage self-propelled mode, however, you simply grab the handles as you naturally would. A top grip or side grip works equally well. Twin buttons on each side of the handle naturally push in when you grasp the handle. Either or both buttons will engage the self-propel system.
EGO Select Cut Lawnmower Power and Traction
Regarding the wheels – EGO wheels all have the same great treads. They give lots of traction when dealing with inclines, wet grass, etc. That matters more than you may think – particularly when you cut higher grass or go for a more aggressive cut.
More of the features you know
Many features present on existing EGO mowers also exist on the EGO Select Cut mower as well. The EGO Select Cut is IPX4-rated to handle water from any direction.
The light system uses two angled sets of 3-LED lights. These LEDs cover a nice area in front of the mower, making it easy to mow in the early morning or late into the evening. And, of course, you can activate them from the driving position. Also, with the low noise output, you never have to worry about waking the neighbours.
