I aquired an LM2140SP back in November, I only now opened the box as now the season started (box is in good shape). It looks like the axis between the front wheels is bent on both sides, see pictures. It it really bent, or am I supposed to do anything to fix it?
Lesson learned on always checking package contents upon arrival? Even though it's over 90 days for HD's standard return policy, it's likely they'll accept the return since it's obvious it was never used. They might only give you store credit, but that's ok. I say this because it happened to me with a small air compressor I needed to return a year after I bought it.
