I purchased the newer blower, sometime in the spring of 2016. Haven't had it that long, all the sudden the turbo button stopped functioning correctly. I own a lot of their other tools and have been pleased thus far. Little disappointed in this blower messing up. Has anyone else experienced this, it's like the turbo button doesn't want to speed up. Blower still functions correctly with just 480 CFM's. However hit the turbo button, and you're out a luck nothing really happens.

If you had this less than 90 days return it to HD. Possible the switch is defective.

Or if return/exchange isn't convenient, give Ego Customer Service a call, they will get you looked after.

I've already contacted EGO, and they promptly have me a replacement in the mail. However, I'm just curious if anyone else has had this problem. I wouldn't want the same thing to happen again.

I haven't had that problem and I use the turbo button a ton.  I use the blower just about every day and have had it for about 7 weeks.
