Have carefully read the instructions, looked at videos on youtube, but pressing the rewind button doesn't pull the string in. The motor sounds and looks like it's working but the string doesn't wind onto the spool. Unit is new. problem active 10 5 1 comment http://m.getsatisfaction.com/topics/7920197 7920197 Self propelled feature stuck in turtle mode 2019-08-25T00:18:39Z 2019-08-24T15:56:10Z Doug Dinger http://m.getsatisfaction.com/people/9221501 https://d2r1vs3d9006ap.cloudfront.net/public/uploaded_images/11118061/photo_medium.jpg doug_dinger I move the throttle into rabbit mode, but it stays going the slowest speed. Does anybody have an idea of what is wrong? It's under warranty, but read horror stories. I am good at fixing stuff, but where do you buy replacement parts? problem 7 3 1 comment http://m.getsatisfaction.com/topics/7873116 7873116 Refurbished (lack of) Warranty worth the savings? 2019-08-25T00:17:03Z 2019-04-09T03:19:28Z Tae Cooke http://m.getsatisfaction.com/people/9839285 https://d2r1vs3d9006ap.cloudfront.net/public/uploaded_images/11341528/Avatar_M2_8_medium.jpg tae_cooke After a successful winter with EGO, I'm ready to buy a mower. Checking HD, I see they have refurbished 7.5Ah kits for the 21" SP mower for $350. The kit new costs $500, so a savings of $150. Cool. BUT! Refurbished only comes with a 1 year warranty on everything.<br /><br />I'm looking for opinions on whether the $150 savings is worth 4 years of warranty service on the mower and 2 years service on the battery. Reading other posts here implies that the self-propel feature is prone to problems. question complete 42 12 1 comment http://m.getsatisfaction.com/topics/7881322 7881322 Mower won’t start 2019-08-24T23:04:33Z 2019-05-01T22:26:55Z Bob Jobe http://m.getsatisfaction.com/people/10021954 https://d2r1vs3d9006ap.cloudfront.net/public/uploaded_images/11409801//platform/profilepic/_medium. bob_jobe Got done mowing my front lawn, went to the back and the mower wouldn’t start. Checked battery. Fine. Switched batteries. Nothing. Let mower chill for the evening because I was over it. <br /> Now. Checked under it, nothing blocking the blade. No build up anywhere actually, keep it clean. Have checked all latches and levers and they’re all in place as they should be. No error lights on the mower or any of the batteries. Have tried folding it up and resetting all the patches essentially. Bail bar still clicks when power button is depressed and then pulled. Customer service still isn’t answering.

The only way to keep the blades from scalping the lawn is by pushing down on the handle and lifting the front end of the mower while you push the mower. But this is no way to cut a lawn. Before I unscrew the front shaft and look at it, I wonder if anybody else has had this problem? problem 1 5 1 comment http://m.getsatisfaction.com/topics/7908737 7908737 Determining when a battery is still good 2019-08-22T01:49:51Z 2019-07-20T17:18:41Z John http://m.getsatisfaction.com/people/8265928 https://d2r1vs3d9006ap.cloudfront.net/public/uploaded_images/10835872/12871473_10206587111897883_6742042568572958823_n_medium.jpg john_curtis_7950698 I have a slightly over 3yr old 2.0 AH. I put it on the rapid charger this morning to recharge it as it had been awhile since I had used it. It started out like it was going to charge, as the green light came on and the fan also came on. After just a couple of seconds, one of the lights on the charger changed to red, the fan stopped and then the battery light also started blinking red. It charged my other batteries fine. Is this a sign the battery has gone bad? question active 5 4 1 comment http://m.getsatisfaction.com/topics/7917662 7917662 Trimmers - Rear motor, power head, carbon body , standard non-carbon 2019-08-21T16:42:28Z 2019-08-16T13:58:22Z Jason135 http://m.getsatisfaction.com/people/10180597 https://d2r1vs3d9006ap.cloudfront.net/public/uploaded_images/11442673/photo_medium.jpgsz400 jason_so Hi Ego guys,&nbsp;<br />Is there a site or area that can easily explain the difference of the 4?&nbsp;<br />What's the main difference between the Rear motor and power head?&nbsp;<br />- I already know the power head can switch attachments. But is there any additional benefits to the rear motor? I have a Stihl FS55R and only use 1/2 the power. But it's nice having that extra torque when i'm edging or going through thick weeds.&nbsp;<br />- Also, do all your trimmers rotate cut clockwise?&nbsp;<br /><br />I asked the other types just because I'm sure others would want to hear an official response.&nbsp; question active 40 6 1 comment http://m.getsatisfaction.com/topics/7890819 7890819 Nexus Escape - Compatibility? fun stuff to do? 2019-08-21T13:12:41Z 2019-05-29T20:01:01Z Gut http://m.getsatisfaction.com/people/10064540 https://www.gravatar.com/avatar/af527349256f4bfee3d3796ae56922b3?d=identicon&s=55&r=PG gut_dub42y9qyey92 Hello all,<br /><br />I just bought a Nexus Escape, considering that I am the proud owner of 4 ego batteries, I thought why not?&nbsp; But now I want to find out if anyone has any kind of general compatibility list / great ideas / etc that works with this device?&nbsp;&nbsp;<br /><br />For instance, I tried <br /><br />- TVs (couldn't get anything more than 30 inch to work, but maybe because they are older flat screen tvs.&nbsp; Any TV specs / max specs that anyone has gotten to work on this?)<br /><br />- Speakers (Works well with my small computer speakers, does anyone have any really large speakers / subwoofers they can vouch works with this?)<br /><br />- Fans (all of my fans -except- for USB fans worked in very weird ways, either they made really loud noises or they simply worked much less efficiently.&nbsp; After digging I found out that a lot of 'motor' based items won't function 100% properly.&nbsp; Anyone have any fans or fan specs that work well with this?&nbsp; I'm afraid I'll be stuck with using USB fans for now)<br /><br />- Laptop (works as advertised, but I'm not sure if this thing can power a high demand gaming laptop yet)<br /><br />With that out of the way, does anyone have any cool uses for this that work really well?&nbsp; For instance, are there any low power draw cooking devices that would really shine with this for camping / power outages?&nbsp; (I'm thinking small rice cookers or induction cookers) Any neat or weird things that work with this would be nice!<br /><br />I just want more excuses to play with my Nexus, honestly.&nbsp; Thanks everyone! question active 5 3 1 comment
