Hey Guys, I have an Echo HC(Something) 1500 hedge trimmer. I haven't ran it in a couple of years, almost lopped my finger off last time I did. I put some fresh gas in it tonight and fired it up. Started right up but I could not get it passed half throttle with out it dieing. I am thinking it might need the carb cleaned amongst some other things. If you have any ideas of what it could be it would be greatly appreciated thanks, Tyler.

I would look into cleaning the carb.

Is cleaning the carbs working for you? I assume you are having the typical bogging and such. Is it difficult to do?

Thanks LT

Start by putting in new fuel filter....then spark plug....new breather and then see how it does. There are two adjusting screws on the carb but I am guessing you might need to clean up carb...take it apart and clean. These units are rock solid unit...
