When my 1 year old Ego 21" SP model 2100 had an issue, Omar in your CS dept went over and above in resolving the repair issue. Because I live so far from a Home Depot Tool Rental store where they repair Ego's, he will be sending me a NEW mower with a prepaid RMA to return my old one. There was no fuss, no "well, we can't help where you live" retort, or any other lousy comments most other places tend to use. Instead, Omar "owned" the problem and solved it to my total and complete satisfaction. Thanks to all!!!!

I don't agree with the great service evaluation.  I am so sick of dealing with you on the phone I am finally returning my new electric mower for a refund!   When I tried to phone you I waited unexpectedly a long time - more than twenty minutes and out of about four attempts I only got answered once!  The other times I waited and waited and finally hung up - they certainly took more than twenty minutes but i didn't wait to see how long I would have actually waited.  Of course I could have had you call me back but I won't bother with that I always get busy and don't want to bother with the phone.  Ho hum!

Donald, what was the reason you were calling? Perhaps we could have been of assistance here?

I see in another post that you just bought the mower you're having problems with yesterday. The easiest thing to do would be to exchange it immediately where you bought it from.

Sorry to hear that, Donald. Were you able to speak with anyone? Is your issue resolved?

That's reassuring, I love my EGO SP mower and leaf blower, but am concerned about service/repairs. I may have spoken with the wrong HD rep, but the guy in the power tools section said he didn't know anything about bring EGO products to them for repair, he said if it breaks or I'm not happy I can always return it with 90 days as long as I have all the packaging. So what happens after 90 days. Seems contacting EGO getting a replacement shipped to you and RA to return the broken one is the only solution. So where does it say " Home Depot" is an authorized repair facility? Or do they give you a new one and return the old one to EGO. USAF Rerired

That HD guy is rogue.  You don't have to have "all the packaging" in order to get a refund within 90 days. 

If you browse thru this forum you will find lots of complaints about long repair times.

If you call Ego customer service
1-855-EGO-5656 (1-855-346-5656) from 8:30AM - 8:00PM EST (Monday - Friday) & 10:00AM - 6:00PM EST (Saturday & Sunday).

They can tell you where you would go for repairs based on your location.  Most likely HD, but sometimes it is different.  Dave is right that you got a bad HD rep that was misinformed.

Also, always lots of help available here for trouble shooting problems.

Unfortunately, reports on HD repair times have not been good.  But Ego stands behind their products and will step in when needed.
