When the trigger is pulled on my Ego Weed Eater it just slowly jerks around and will not fully come on. Battery is fully charged. Even tried a different battery with same results.

Is this a new trimmer, first time you've used it or you've been using it awhile and it's just started acting up?
If the latter, you might check for something (long grass?) wrapped around the trimmer head.
If the former and it's within 90 days return it to Home Depot for exchange (assuming you bought it at Home Depot).
