new 721 QZE metal/plastic combo bent scraper bar

My new 721 QZE came today and the rubber paddles are thumping against the metal part of the scraper bar. This new model has the plastic/metal scraper bar. The metal upper section of the scraper looks to be arched outwards towards the rubber paddles which is causing the paddles to leave wear marks on the scraper and make considerable noise. SBD is looking at the photos I sent and is going to send me parts ( likely just a new scraper).

Kinda disappointed in Toro for changing the scraper to something that can bend / warp easier than solid plastic. I'll post photos once moderators approve me doing so because I'm new here.

Is your blower one of the newly redesigned 721's with the engine outside the housing?

Looks like Toro needs to issue a technical service bulletin on these new models.

I managed to take off the scraper and indeed there was a slight arch to it which was making the paddles hit it. I straightened it out and its all fixed now and the scraper sits nice and flat on the ground now and no more rubber paddles hitting it.

Toro is sending me a new one for free anyway. I'll save it for future use... and they said they are on back order so maybe they caught this issue and are fixing things which is why they're out of stock?
