Does your Ego Mower not stay COMPLETELY locked into place (Height)?

I noticed that my 2142SP does not completely lock into place. It kinda "swims" around the adjusted height. Is this normal???

I made a quick video to show the problem. Sorry for the dusty mower, just got done crunching some leaves!

Mine stays rock solid but I have the single battery 21" non-sp mower so I don't know if that makes any difference.

My 21” SP is solid and holds its height. Looks like you might have a missing screw or two. Check the brackets holding the front axel in place.

The 2MB max file size for each photo on this site sucks.

Here are some pics I took underneath. They were all tight but I snugged them anyways. Made no difference.

You have to go to a 3rd party site to view them unfortunately...

Have you given customer service a call to see if they had any ideas

Called CS. They want me to take it to Home Depot for repair. If they can't fix it locally, they will ship somewhere that can. They said it can take multiple weeks. If I decide to do this I'll do it after the late fall leaves clean-up. Since it 'may not' effect cut much, I may just say forget it since it could potentially open a new can of worms...

Can someone with a 2140SP please check and see if it completely locks in place unlike mine?

The basic mower platform and height adjustment are the same.  Your deck should not have that much movement.
