first mow with brand new LM2100SP...as soon as I engage the self propel handle the mower makes a high pitch whining sound and the whining sound goes away when I disengage the self propel switch...is this normal

It does make a sound, but I wouldn't consider it high pitch; your ears are probably more sensitive than mine.

Some YouTube video reviews I've seen it sounds like the sp motor has a somewhat high pitched whine. Maybe look up some video reviews and see if theirs sounds like yours.

Every battery operated mower I've had makes a sound; with it being so quiet, you can hear the SP, but a gas mower drowns out other sounds.
