When is EGO going to reach out to all mower owners and say, "guess what? We fixed that defective design where you couldn't use a hose to spray the bottom of your mower, by adding this nice little piece that covers it up perfectly AND improves lift!! Now, we're going to show you how to retrofit this onto your mower should you choose to! :)"

Just wondering.

Hi everyone.  Thanks for all of your great conversation.  We still maintain that you should NOT hose out the underneath of the mower's deck and we do not have a piece to retrofit into the mower in order to allow you to do so.  This is not on our list of improvements for the mower at this time.  If you have the newer version of the mower (model LM2000-S) with the fan,  we still do not recommend cleaning the mower with water.  That fan is not a water tight fitting and was never intended to be one.  We hope this helps clear up your questions and concerns.
