40V Powerplex max shuts down while trimming

Hello Guys,

I’ve had my 40V Toro trimmer for over a year now and the device has started to just shut off without any warning while I’m using it. I’ve never had this or any other problem with it before and recently replaced the batteries so I don’t know what could be causing it. Does anyone have an idea with it could be?


Hello Greg,

Most of the time people mention the trimmer shutting off without any warning it’s highly likely that the issue is being caused by a faulty battery but since you replaced yours, it could also be a faulty latch that’s interrupting the terminal’s contact with the ends. If the latch is not the problem, I would suggest you check that the voltage is appropriate for your model.
