Happy owner of an EGO mower (4th year) , blower and trimmer a few years each. A question about the mower if anybody else has this happe. Once I release the control lever, the engine slows down but doesn't actually stop for about 20 seconds. Anybody else?
That’s a new one, Kim. I’ve had my 20 inch mower for about the same amount of time and I haven’t noticed anything resembling what you mention.
What you’re saying sounds almost like what happens when the battery dies, where the machine slowly costs down to a stop. Would that be accurate? Do you have a second battery you can try it with to see if the problem follows the battery?
Regardless, it sounds like either your mower or battery may have an issue. Give Ego Customer Service a call and they will help you troubleshoot. As this is their busy season try calling during the week and early in the day to avoid long wait times.
