Customer Question

I have a brand new Husqvarna 130BT that I purchased just about 3 months ago. Just recently it started, in fact, the last two times, where it will start, but as soon as I try to accelerate it, it cuts off. It always starts again, but time after time when I try to press the accelerate button, for higher speed, it cuts off. What could possibly be going on, or what do I need to do to fix this problem? Thanks for your help.
