EGO Adds Smart Drive Technology To Your Self-Propelled Mowing Experience
Compared to traditional push mowers, self-propelled mowers can save you time and don’t require you to exert as much energy. EGO took this concept and improved upon it with the EGO Select Cut XP Self-Propelled Mower With Speed IQ. We dug deeper to see how its user-oriented convenience and new technology can help you tackle lawn day.
EGO 21-Inch Select Cut XP Self-Propelled Mower With Speed IQ: The Big Deal
This self-propelled mower (LM2167SP) takes the foundation of the EGO Select Cut XP and adds Speed IQ technology, which digitally senses and adapts the mower’s speed to your stride. You don’t need to adjust levers or dials like with previous models; all the work is done by the mower itself.
We only have one photo to go from at the moment, so we’re having to make our best guesses based on it. It looks like the handle design is different from the other self-propelled models, so it may be that the sensor is built in there and reacts to how hard you’re pushing into it. We’ll know for sure when we get it in our hands.
EGO also tells us that it features the industry’s first handlebar-integrated digital display which provides real-time information. It monitors your speed, the battery charge level, and blade speed setting. Again, with just a photo to work with and not being able to see the display, it’s tough to make any substantive comments about it. Still, we’re anxious to learn more.
Like previous Select Cut models, the LM2167SP mower is a multi-blade system that includes three interchangeable blades. In past models, your blade options were a Mulching Blade, a High Lift Bagging Blade, and an Extended Runtime Blade. Although the blades have not yet been specified for this exact model, it’s most likely to come with the same ones.
- Exceeds gas performance
- Delivers 8.3 ft-lbs of torque
- Cuts for up to 90 minutes on a single charge
- LED headlights
- Three blade types included
- Compatible with all EGO 56V ARC Lithium™ batteries
