LM2100 barely picks up leaves and grass thatch. I have to make multiple passes using the lowest level setting and this scalps my lawn. I bought the EGO to replace my Greenworks mower that quit after 6 years. It had no challenges picking up leaves, even on the highest level setting. I’m still within the 90 day return window for Home Depot and thinking of taking it back. Is this a known issue?

The high lift blade (sold on Amazon for $21) is an improvement over the standard blade sold with the mower. Ego should offer both blades with a new mower. I experienced no reduction in cutting time with the high lift blade.
