when i get to close to a curb or fence line the revolution and speed of the weed trimmer slows down to half the speed until I let off the throtle and try to restart the revolution at the high speed.  It then restart itself at the high resolution speed.  this is annoying.  is this a normall of the weed trimmer

Do you have your guard on the bottom installed?  If the black guard with the line cutting blade isn't installed at the bottom of the trimmer, your trimmer will rev up and down as you describe.  The guard must be installed in order for your trimmer to operate properly.
