Took the mover and trimmer out to cut the grass.  popped the battery in.  went to start it. nothing.  took the trimmer battery and nothing happened also.  thought the batteries might not have been charged.  check the charge.  said they were full.  I have a hedge trimmer also.  so i checked both batteries on the hedge trimmer.  didnt work.  the battery for the hedge trimmer worked the string trimmer also.  so it has to be the mower shorted out the 2 batteries.

Just make sure the tools and batteries are all registered and give Ego a call tomorrow. I'm sure they will be able to confirm the issue and take care of you right away.

Something like this has been reported here once before that I am aware of, so it's very rare but not completely unheard of.
