Knew Ego had one. Now Echo 58-Volt Lithium-Ion Walk-Behind Brushless Cordless Mower 

If you had a small lot in town I think these would be pretty neat.

I live on a 50 X 150 foot city lot, and use an electric lawnmower.  I have see some of these smaller, batter lawnmowers, and thought that they might be better for some smaller, highly landscaped lots, where a lot of the traditional lawn has been replaced with flowering beds, shrubs, patios, stonework, etc.  All of the low noise/easy start/low maintenance advantages of electric, and easier to maneuver, no cord to drag.  Not a lot of grass to mow, and more even cutting than using just a string trimmer.

since their isnt a 36V Echo thread i will add it here...later on i may start a new thread just to update it and give a progress report as time passes.

This weekend I took one of the 36V echo trimmers home to use. Not bad but it could use a little more battery life which the 58V equipment should have. To be fair this is the first time i trimmed around the shop this year(still havent mowed yet) and the grass was an easy foot tall in spots. Had the son trim around my main shop 36x48, the storage shed 8x24, and the other storage buiding 24x24. took 2 full batteries to do that. He trimmed out from the buildings a foot to 2 feet in places and underneath a couple tractors. trimmer seems to have plenty of power on the high setting but even when the grass was thin and short i found the low setting to be almost useless. It just spins the head so slow that it takes going over a section several times to get all the grass cut. Overall i like it and from the little bit i have used it i would recommend it to  somebody in town with no hesitation. And the .080 Silentwist line that comes on really impressed me with how durable it was. We should be giving it a good workout because i took it to the farm to use there so it will be abused trimming creek banks and waist high weeds. These have a 3 year warranty for consumer use and NO commercial warranty.

IMO after picking up one yesterday ready to use.  To heavy for my likings for a small trim saw around the house.  No cuts made just checking it out.

'Picked one up', like in the store, just to get the feel of it; or 'picked one up', like bought one to try out?

I would like to try one side-by-side with my Oregon CS300, brushless saw, but don't want to buy one with the intent of returning it.  Would like to find someone local who has one for a mini-GTG.

Picked one up in store. No way I would buy now after seeing weight.   Almost has heavy as a 70cc.  Felt like carrying a 290-390 around.

Still have their place though. Just not in my place.

Picking up some lights at lowes I took a detour.  ;D

There was a yellow Dewalt looking battery powered chainsaw that looked just like the echo version.

Trying to find inf now.

Clearly, some similarities in appearance, with the center-mounted battery.But 40V vs 58 volt indicates different motor, etc.

One year later and now the insight of time spent with one of these Echo CCS-58V 4AH saws has brought me some subtle but important points about the saw. Basically I trashed it, rebuilt it, and am learning to get along with it.

Point One: This had to be the idea that the battery button was/is like the primer bulb. That took a while to figure out and had me pissed/worried/feeling stupid. Mainly felt stupid because I didnt appreciate Li as a flammable and missed a Safety Idea about discharge rates.

Point Two: This echo works best if it is considered a polesaw type cutter, inasmuch as its running a 16" picco type chain. This will also save you from bending the blade, like I did, and possibly ripping out the oiler in anger, as I also did.

Point Three: It turns out parts are available by internet, mine came out of Fla for some reason, and there are actually not many parts. 2 bearings move, the clutch is hollowed out because it not needed.  Trigger and chain.  There is an oil pump.

Point Four: The machine reads torque, electrically, and temps maybe too since they are an expression of energy, midrun shutdowns can be related to things like overtight new chains, also less that lubricity in the oil. Also if the chain is not oiling well. I  think this a sensitivity.  In fact, I think some slickum additive for the oil would increase the performance window that the protection chips are set to allow.

That is all
