My PowerPlex 40V Max 13’’ refuses to turn on

Hello everybody,

My Toro 40V max string trimmer has been with me for over two whole years now, but I’m not able to turn it on. Any idea what the issue could be? The trimmer has always maintained properly with the battery also charged well.


Hi Nick,

I had this problem last week. You say that the battery is always properly charged, so I have a feeling it could be that the latching mechanism behind your handle is not holding the battery’s terminals in place properly. Try checking the latch and let us know if it doesn’t work.
