Curious to know how much protection is built in the Ego mowers design for rain protection? Especially the safety power on button on the handle, is that switch weather proof?

Blue and Rob are correct.  EGO tools are water-resistant but not water-proof.  If you get caught in the rain while mowing, you'll be just fine.  Don't mow in a downpour or store your mower outdoors unprotected from the elements.  We also DO NOT recommend washing the underside of the mower's deck with a hose or pressure washer.
