Possible Rust on Mower?!?

I have only had my Power + mower for a little over a month and have used it 5 times.  I noticed when I was brushing out the undercarriage that the bar between the rear wheels seemed to have a rust starting on it.  I do not mow the lawn wet and I have not hosed the mower off.  I am wondering if this is happening just from the grass wetness from being cut and if anyone else has had an issue.

Get some Boeshield T9 corrosion protection spray.  it's nothing short of amazing.  Of course you need to remove the rust first.  Pick your favorite method for doing that.  But no matter what you do to remove the rust, T9 is the cat's meow for preventing rust.  re-apply from time to time.

if you can't find it locally, Amazon has it.  $18.  lasts a long time.

Thanks.  I get free shipping with Amazon since I am a Prime Member, so I will definitely take advantage of this product.

Found the Boeshield T9 at my local Sears for $22.

As much as I love to support Sears, and I have for over 20 years - I just can't afford to buy anything from them anymore.  Everything is expensive and over priced vs. HD and other hardware stores.

All, our team took a look at these images and that kind of surface corrosion (really more discoloring than anything) should not affect performance and durability in any way.  We are, however, having the team review some kind of solution going forward.  A reminder that your tools are covered by a 5 year warranty and if performance is affected in a negative way, we're only a phone call away to get help.
