I just purchased the 21" push mower a week ago and used it twice.  I noticed a constant rattle sound during mowing and found it to be the battery cover.  When latched, it has about 1/8" vertical movement and 1/16" side to side.  The unit was built 4/17.  I am surprised the cover doesn't latch firmly in place since the unit will vibrate by nature from the spinning blade, traveling across a lawn, etc.  The rattle is actually louder than the motor/blade spinning.  Does anyone else have this issue?

If the lid is rattling it could be due to excessive vibration. Check your blade balance and make sure that’s not the issue.
