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!
