I hit a root with the mower and now I seem to have a vibration. I've tried using a new ego mower blade but it still seems off. Any idea where this could be coming from?

Bent shaft. If it is a slight wobble it will be hard to check. However, the bearing will get destroyed over a short period of time. I hit my septic lid and no bend. Lucky me. Also. Try to take off the flange at the end of the shaft. Maybe it got tweaked. Im not sure if the 21"mower is the same.

As far as I can tell, the 21" mower does away with the keyed blade and just relies on friction from bolt tension to spin the blade. This would allow a small amount of slip should the blade hit something, hopefully avoiding damage to the motor shaft.
