Assuming you have the Powerload model? If so, are you using .095 line? I think people who've tried .080 have had trouble with the powerload feature.

using high quality husquevarna 95.  Worked before but now it goes through the motions but doesn't wind the line.  Battery is fully charged.

2 thoughts. If you bought it at Home Depot, you have 90 days to return it for refund or exchange. 1 year if you used an HD credit card. Otherwise the tool has a 5 year warranty and a call to EGO customer service is in order.

Thanks.  It was working fine  but you can manually advance the line through the head  until it appears.  Then  adjust to equal  5 ft lengths and then hit the power button  and it sounds and acts like it is working fine but the line will not advance.  1 yr old carbon shaft from HD
