I just purchased the 21 inch Self Propelled Ego Lawnmower on Saturday with the 7.5A Battery at Home Depot.  Today I  took it out of the box only to discover that the Trailing Shield is bent and deformed!  Its so badly bent I see no way to make it flat.  What can be done to correct this? What a major disappointment! Should I just return it back to Home Depot?

Exchanging at Home Depot will be a lot of work! If you're up to it, that's a user replaceable part and a quick call to Ego Customer Service will have a new one in the mail asap.

Here's the parts view from the manual:

When I bought my mower I had them unpackage it, and then placed it in the car. They were fine with that..
