Our Verdict

WHAT WE LIKE WHAT WE DON’T LIKE 
Excellent battery run time (about 60 mins) Poor fitting side discharge chute
 Self propelled  Doesn’t have a roller for striped lawn
21″ Cutting width (suitable for larger yards) 
Has the power of a gas mower 
 Mulching, Discharge & Grass collection 

In the last few years cordless lawn mowers have come along way. They have been able to go head to head with similar sized gas or corded electric mowers used for small and medium sized lawns. When is comes to larger lawns and tough grass conditions, cordless lawn mowers have always come second place to gas mowers. However, EGO Power have produced a real game changer with the LM2130SP cordless lawn mower.

Carry on reading our review of the LM2130SP to see why we think it is such an excellent mower and why it has won our Best Overall Cordless Lawn Mower 2021 award!

Self Propelled

As you might expect from a lawn mower designed for larger lawns, the EGO LM2130SP is self propelled using rear wheel drive. The speed at which the mower goes can be controlled between 0.9mph  and 3.1mph. The variable speed is controlled using Tough Drive technology which is managed using a simple dial to increase or decrease the speed. This is a really useful feature and is not found on many other lawn mowers.

For information there are different model variations of this EGO Power+ cordless lawn mower

Model: LM2130SP = Self Propelled
Model: LM2130 = Manual push

We strongly suggest going for the self propelled model.

Compared to a gas lawn mower the LM2130SP is relatively lightweight, however it is still quite a heavy weight to be pushing around. Especially if you plan on using the grass collector which will make it heavier.

Battery

If you do decide to buy the EGO LM2135SP lawn mower it should be noted that this model doesn’t come with a battery or a charger! The battery and charger can be purchased as separate items or go for the EGO LM2133 (not self propelled) or EGO LM2135SP (self propelled) which come with both battery and charger.

If you get the EGO 56V ARC Lithium 7.5 Ah battery, expect to get about 60 minutes of runtime. Which is pretty good considering it is self propelled and has powerful motor. 

The rapid charger typically takes about 1 hour to fully charge the 7.5Ah battery. The charge time is among the quickest you can expect from any cordless lawn mower brand.

The EGO batteries are compatible with other EGO products, such as weed whackers, leaf blowers and other cordless lawn mowers. 

It is generally a good idea to get the highest Amp Hour (Ah) battery that you can afford. You will only need one battery that can be shared with all other EGO cordless power tools

Cutting

Obviously one of the most important features of any lawn mower is how well it cuts the grass. Thanks to EGO’s Select Cut multi blade system the LM2130SP cuts grass brilliantly. 

The Select Cut blade system features 3 different blades that each have a specific purpose. The blades can be used together or changed depending on how you want the grass cut.

The  Mulching Blade This blade gives a great cut, and chops the grass into fine fragments that are suitable for mulching.

The High Lift Bagging Blade has been designed to increase suction and is used when the grass is to be collected in to the collection bag.

The Extended Runtime Blade gives a great quality cut but also maximises battery runtime.

Performance

The LM2130SP has an amazing amount of power for a cordless lawn mower. It is capable of cutting through all types of grass conditions. If you’ve been holding back from getting a cordless lawn mower because you were concerned that they don’t have the power of gas mower, then think again. 

Storage

The mower handles fold down so they are completely flat. This allows for the mower to hang from a hook or stored on shelves. Unlike a gas lawn mower there are no concerns about fuel or oil leaking if it the mower doesn’t sit flat on a surface.

Verdict

We think the EGO LM2130SP is the best cordless lawn mower that money can buy. It has huge amounts of power and thanks to powerful batteries you can expect up to 1 hour of runtime from the 7.5Ah battery! Clearly a lot of thought has gone into the design of the mower, making it easy to use and a great performer.

Build quality is also excellent. All the materials used in the construction of the lawn mower are of high quality and no corners have been cut to reduce costs.

If you have a medium to large sized yard, then get the LM2130SP, you won’t be disappointed!
