My 20 inch push mower has developed a loud squeaking noise. It started out as a small chirping noise and has got louder. I have used the mower about 4 or 5 times. The noise is coming from the height adjustment mechanism. It doesn't matter if the motor is engaged or not. I am thinking of unscrewing the adjustment handle / plate and spraying the mechanism with some lubricant. I would rather not send it out for repair if I can avoid it. My ION noise reduction headphones drown out the noise for now. Has anyone else had this issue?
Awesome! Despite the squeaking noise from the heigh system reported here: https://community.egopowerplus.com/eg... the mower is a great product. I've used a Lawnboy for 10 years, it was big, heavy, loud and somewhat powerful (6.5hp) and I hated it! The EGO 20" is extremely powerful compared to the 6.5hp Techumseh, it mulches like a charm, earring the blade suction wind from under, it cuts grass evenly I cried for not having this sooner! My 11 years old daughter has tried it and was able to maneuver in slight slope!! I have a 4k square feet area and use a little more than 5.0 amp battery. I added a 2.0 amp. to alternate when needed. I thought lamp on the front was a gadget, but I had to use it twice since the sound level of the mower gives me the chance to finish after dusk!
