After less than a year the self propel feature stopped working along with the indication of the mower over heating in 68 degree weather.  After being instructed to take the mower to  Home Depot for repair I was informed by HD the mower would be shipped to Atlanta for repair which takes anywhere from 6 to 8 weeks. If I would have thought about repair issues before purchasing the EGO this would have been a probable show stopper.  These mowers need to be designed so a DIY person can trouble shoot and possibly make repairs. Having to wait 8 weeks is ridiculous. If this is going to be the case moving forward, EGO should have in place a deal with HD to lend a mower at no charge to the customer.
