My trimmer gets hot and won't run long. Worked good for 30 minutes or so today, then all of the sudden wouldn't run long and would get hot. Now it only beeps and the head barely turns. Model 1500 and has not been used much at all. Maybe total of two weeks. Any help appreciated. Thank you.

I also have the chain saw and blower. Love them.

If you've only had it a few weeks, I agree with William. The easiest thing would be to take advantage of Home Depot's 90-day exchange policy.

Don't give up. The trimmers are some of Ego's best tools.
