Stopped working, I thought the switch was broken

My 15 inch string trimmer stopped working the fourth time that I used it . I thought that the switch was broken but it was just a dead battery. I don’t use the trimmer every time that I mow and I had a lot of work yet to get done. I was very disappointed because this is so much better than the Craftsman two cycle gas trimmer that I had before. So much quicker because it does not bog down in heavy grass. When I first started using it I was worried that the line would have to be replaced soon since it seemed to always be feeding line. I went to replace it befor I got started today and found that I still had about eight feet of line left. My only regret is that I did not get a bigger battery than the 2.5 amp one.
So very happy with this my only Ego product so far.

Thanks for sharing Robert! It’s probably a good idea to top the battery off before getting started if you know you have a larger job to do. :-)

Generally speaking, I do very similar to you where I use the trimmer multiple times without charging it. I guess the biggest difference is that I have a spare battery in case I run out so it’s no big deal. If you ever decide to get a second tool it might be wise to consider one with a battery as a kit, so you can swap between them if necessary.
