If you clean your mower after each use, the cleaning is easy, especially because you can easily tip the mower onto its side to access the underside of the deck. First remove the safety key and the battery. Wipe the upper surfaces with a cloth, if needed. Tip the mower on its side and clean the underside of the deck with a bristle brush and/or cloth.  Do not use a wire brush.  Do not spray the underside of your EGO Power+ mower with water. If grass has built up over time, you may find that a curved plastic scraper, such as those used in the kitchen, is useful to help remove dried, built up grass.

I use silicone spray to clean it, it looks like new and the plastic is easy to clean.  My mower basically still looks new.  Along with the fact it is electric, I have no worries about a gummed up carb from sitting all winter, or draining gas, buying expensive stabilizers.  Buying into the EGO system has saved me a lot of time and in the long term, money and aggravation.  I've compared them all, EGO is in my opinion, second to none with the products they carry.

I use the blower to clean the mower.  It makes sense! :)

Just use compressed air. I drag my hose out and blast it with air. When it's not bad I just use my ego blower. I've also done unapproved things like carefully hose it off. I'm not gentle on it and it just keeps going.

Ouuuhhh... and maybe EGO could come up with a battery powered air compressor. Would be nice to clean the mower, and many other tasks. Could become a good excuse to also finish my hardwood floor... 

Like, like, like... 

I am way too much into the EGO brand right now... not good for my wallet...

A "Peak-Power" dual battery Ego compressor would be incredible!  Tools like these could really benefit from the larger Ego battery platform... a single 4Ah Ego battery has more stored energy than two 5Ah Ridgid batteries.

It's called Fluid Film and I found it near all the tools at Lowes - and it works great!

A shop vac is another option for cleaning the mower and under deck.

I pre-treated my blade and under deck with WD40 Waterproof Silicone Spray and so far, it's worked great to keep grass from sticking.

Once I had to brush out the under deck when I mowed slightly damp grass one morning trying to beat the Summer heat and afternoon thunderstorms.

I love the Ego LM2101 Mower.   My grass has never looked better.
