Hello, I bought my EGO hedge trimmer 2 yrs ago which comes with a 5 yr limited warranty. Now the blades have become blunt and do not give me the desired trim. Is there any way that I can replace the blades or can you guys replace the trimmer? Thanks for considering. VJ

You have to sharpen the blades. No different than saying the blade on your lawnmower got dull—it is normal wear, not a warranty issue.

There are instructions for sharpening in the user manual and I believe a video on Ego's YouTube channel.
