Recently purchased a 21" self-propelled model and noticed a substantial squeaking noise when moving the mower (whether on or off), which appears to be coming from the transmission box around the rear wheel axle. I sometimes push, sometimes self-propel. Is this normal, or a sign of an issue?

Hmmm... when it's off, mine is pretty silent when pushing (aside from a slight "whirrrrrr" from the rear drive gear).

can you attach a sound file so that Ego can hear what you are hearing?  I was able to use my cell phone to transmit the sound of the hedge trimmer starting to move (a squeak or chirp sound) to the Ego tech.  She confirmed it is normal.   Two units that I've had sounded the same, but when I called, I'd only had the first unit.

Mine squeaks too.  I'll post a video next time I mow.

That happened on the first time I used the 21"sp model.  Afterwards, the squeak stopped when I wasn't using the sp option.
