Several weeks ago I purchased a brand new 21" ego lawn mower. Since then I have cut my grass four times and am extremely disappointed! The mower always leaves uncut strips of grass and produces almost no uplift at all. Some grass clippings will get on the sidewalk and when I run the mower over them they don't move at all! On top of this, the mower leaves a line of cut grass on the right hand side so you have to try your best to keep the freshly cut grass to the left side of the mower which isn't feasible all the time. I'm at the point where I swear when I cut my grass. I spent a lot of money on this mower and could have gotten a superior gas mower for less money. Is there any way to increase the uplift, a different blade I could use or increase the engine speed? So far really disappointed and would not recommend to anyone unless there is a solution to this problem.
