EGO Power+ 20 inch mower used weekly. I find I have to keep stopping to clear a clogged deck every two runs up the garden. The grass collector is about 1/8 full each time but the mower stops due to deck totally clogged up with clippings.

I live in the UK where we get long damp wet winters - so waiting for grass to dry is simply not an option - its always damp for about 6months of the year. My previous mowers never suffered as badly as this does - any ideas/suggestions or have I bought something not designed for damp climates?

About the best recommendations I read here a couple of years ago was to clean the underside of the desk really well, then wax it with something like car wax to keep it slick.
