Using our new 12" string trimmer in green grass and weeds found the motor stalling after a short time. Investigated. Fine fibers of grass were wrapped around the "mushroom bushing" and jamming (very) tightly against the thin thrush washer next to the motor. Moved into dry grass, and it became much worse, often cutting only a few moments before jamming on a mass of grass. This may be unavoidable given the need for the cooling air to pass through that space, but if the mushroom bushing were something like an eighth shorter the cooling fan blades would at least be close enough to the motor housing that stalks of tall grass could not readily get through to get wrapped around the bushing and jam. Failing that, teardown needs to be "field friendly". The present stack of small pieces (bushings, washers, the nut) is too vulnerable to falling into the grass and running off. A redesign might have the cooling fan fins located on the top of the motor, away from the cutting action, with the cooling air discharging out the bottom. . .reverse the flow. As is the machine is of very limited use for us.
