Setting 3 is too high but at Setting 2 it slows or jams. Can you adjust height settings or blade depth?

As of right now, the mower height settings are what they are. Some have tried modifying the mower's height themselves.

A "fine tune" option would be nice, like allowing the user to adjust a screw that would give +/-0.5" from any of the factory height settings.

If your mower doesn't have the white plastic cover between the deck and the blade then you could try the unofficial workaround I posted elsewhere on this site, but of course it would be at your own risk and could potentially jeopardize your warranty coverage. Basically add a spacer to drop the blade down 1/4". I am not aware of any such modification that can be done on the revised version with the plastic plate.

Hi SuperDave,

The new revision of the mower with the vent doesn't leave any room to work with the bolt assembly.  The blade barely fits on the assembly how it is.  I would deeply advise against any modification on the newer design.

I never really took a close look at the wheels, but are these replaceable?  If so, I wonder if EGO has any plans to sell an alternate set of wheels for a different range of cutting heights.

Edit:  Actually, there are some spare front and rear wheels for the EGO mower for sale on EBAY, so apparently they can be replaced.  However, there doesn't seem to be much room for improvement on the front wheels - they're already very close to the deck housing the mower blades.
