hey guys im kind of bummed out and dont know what is going on with my mower. it is the 21" ego and i hit a rock about 2"x2"....the mower still runs but at about 60% of the speed as it normally would, and the mower is rumbling slightly. i took the blad off and centered it...and it is still rumbling and running weaker. any suggestions or thoughts on what might be going on here? the blade does still turn freely also

It's probably a bent shaft. Happened to me. Hopefully it isn't. Please call ego support!

Jason, it may be covered, not sure. The 21" mowers have a blade mount that doesn't key the blade to the shaft which allows some slip if you hit something.

Give CS a call and see what they say.

Could be a battery issue, hitting the rock. Could of shorted the battery, try a replacement battery

The battery and charger have some pretty comprehensive monitoring systems built in. If there was a battery problem it would most likely show up when placing it on the charger.

Wouldn't hurt to try it better than buying a new mower borrow a battery
