  1. 14 years ago today... Not forgotten.
  2. Oh **** yeah! The cord pull on my gas trimmer is the worst and was a main reason I switched from that to a battery powered trimmer. The snow blower was no easy chore in the cold of winter as well. Now I push a button and go.
  3. Yes, but mine is rather lazy and would have a tough time cutting it to my near impossible standards. I like crisp lines and a straight pattern in my lawn. It's hard to accomplish that with one hand gripping a cell phone.
  4. While the EGO snow blower is not a silent machine, IMO it is significantly quieter than my previously snow blower. On a winter morning, I can hear people a street or two over snow blowing their driveway or sidwealks... I'm sure the same can't be said of me when I'm out there now.
  5. I believe the stated run time on the mower is 60 minutes for a full battery charge. My yard takes about that amount of time to cut and I have yet to run out of battery power before finishing. Typically I have enough charge left to take out the battery and use it to power my blower to clean off the driveway and sidewalks. I typically do not use the bag when cutting, except late in the season when I'm trying to pick up leaves in addition to grass clippings. I mostly run it using the mulcher. My mower came with one battery and my snow blower (which uses the same size battery) came with two. So I have three batteries that I can switch through my mower if needed. However, I haven't needed to do this as I've always finished with the first battery.
  6. I agree with this. My EGO lawn mower is self propelled, but I hardly ever engage it. I find it very light and easy to push, so I don't often bother to use that feature.
  7. Home Depot no longer sells EGO (although there may be some clarence items at select HD stores). Lowes is now the main reseller along with Ace Hardware stores and Amazon. https://www.protoolreviews.com/is-ego-going-national-with-outdoor-power-tools/ I personally love the EGO tools and have several including the blower, string trimmer, hedge trimmer, lawn mower and snow blower. The lawn mower replaced a gas powered Honda lawn mower that I hated... I just never felt I got a good cut with the Honda mower and often had to double cut to get the result I wanted. I don't have to double cut with my EGO, but do find with the single blade version I have that the mulching capabilities are not the best. The current version of the lawn mower comes with two blades and the mulching has been much improved from what I hear. May have to upgrade in a couple years. The EGO snow blower is also great and is ultra quiet compared to my old gas powered Honda snowblower. I wouldn't feel the least bit quilty starting it up at 5:00am to do the driveway before leaving for work. You wouldn't catch me doing that with my old snow blower in fear of pissing off all the neighbors. The one minor issue I have with the snow blower is it has a plastic scraper bar underneath to help clear a clean path, which it does a great job of doing. However, it often catches on the seams in the driveway or sidewalk which can be very jolting when not expecting it. All the other told have been great also. Love the cordless hedge trimmer which makes that job much easier and safer. No fear of accidentally cutting the power cord with it! The only drawback or issue I have had with the EGO tools is one of my smaller capacity batteries has gone bad and only holds a couple minutes of charge. In all honesty, I'm not the best at maintaining my batteries so I probably have only myself to blame for it shortened lifespan. But they are costly to replace, so it's something I need to be better with. Overall, I have been very happy since switching from my gas powered tools.
  8. I'm in, so please sign up so I can kick your butt @Biff Mayhem
  9. I had one message in my box and didn't have issues sending or receiving a message. So if you are having issues, check the amount of messages in your inbox and perhaps delete a few.
  10. Haven't we had this issue before were message inboxes were full?
  11. Up until a few years ago (1974-2015), Mazda was part owned by Ford and had their own version of the Escape. I believe it was the Mazda Tribute.
  12. I'm a Ford guy and between my wife and I, we've had two Escapes (2003 and 2013). We've enjoyed both and have plans to get another this year once my son starts driving and inherits my wife's current vehicle (2019 Ecosport). I'm driving my second Ford Edge (2008 and now 2015) and will be upgrading soon myself, but I'm not sure which Ford model I may look at since the Edge may not be around much longer. Other family members have Escapes as well and all love them too!
  13. Love Sonos! I upgraded a few of my older models this spring to get them on the new platform and look to upgrade my older basement models soon, which are Play:3s. I have a Denon AV receiver hooked up to my basement TV, and I'm considering replacing that with a new Sonos sound bar to simplify my basement entertainment setup. As much as I like the fancy stereo system, I hate having to deal with all the settings and remotes just to watch a show or movie. I went simple on the setup in my living room and enjoy that so much more. The Sonos Move is also great for taking your sound to areas where you don't have a Sonos plugged in.
  14. Is anyone still having speed or performance issues with the forum? Some server changes were made a few weeks back that could have been the cause of the issues experienced, but I myself have not noticed any problems. If they have continued, please respond. Thanks!
