I am a big fan of EGO lawn equipment. I own the company’s self-propelled push mower, snow blower, weed eater, and leaf blower. I’ve reached out to the company many times for a review unit of its zero-turn riding mowers but have not had success securing one for review. So when I opened up the EGO website today, I was shocked to see they are releasing the EGO Lawn Tractor soon, as well as a…. Mini Bike?

UPDATE September 5: We have had several questions regarding the EGO Lawn Tractor, so we reached out for answers and here’s what we heard back.
What happens if you run out of battery? How do you drive the tractor back to a shed or garage? We have built into the firmware a similar “reserve tank” of sorts. Basically, when batteries reach a certain point in their discharge, the blades (Largest battery consumer on a rider) shut off. That gives you quite a bit of “drive only” range to get back to your garage or shed.
What about moisture and weather, is this waterproof? The EGO lawn tractor is IPX4 rated and has been tested and left in wet outdoor conditions. While we have tested for this, we still recommend storing the tractor inside or in a covered area. Outdoor storage is not recommended.
From EGO’s response, it sounds like they have been testing the new tractor since early 2023. So it should be ready by Spring 2024.

The Mini Bike is certainly a novel and fun idea but I’m more interested in the EGO lawn tractor. Mowing nearly an acre of property with a push mower is great exercise, but also not very fun or efficient. So having something like the EGO lawn tractor would be fantastic. I’m guessing the company is releasing this to compete with Cub Cadet and others, but also to offer something homeowners can use for more than just mowing.
The zero turn mowers are great, but the functionality of a lawn tractor can sometimes be better. Here’s what EGO’s site says about this new tractor:
