Today was the 2nd time I've used it. First time  I was impressed, plenty of power. Today I was trimming about 4-5 minutes when it got noticeably slower. Way to slow to do any meaningful trimming. If you power up full speed, starts to go fast then you can hear it slow down. EGO customer service told me to bring it back for an exchange. I'm going to bring it back just not sure I will be bringing another one home.

That is one of the most loved tools on this board.  Based on the fact that you were impressed by it the first use, I would give it another try.
