My EGO trimmer won't run longer than 2 seconds before it shuts down. It seems like it will rev up to almost its max power then shuts down. I know it's not the battery. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Brandon, which trimmer do you have? Do you have the guard installed? If it's not installed, the rev up and down is normal operation to protect the motor from overheating. We do suggest you have the guard on to make sure the line doesn't get too long which will put extra strain on the motor. We can also troubleshoot with you over the phone by calling us at 1-855-346-5656.
