Just bought this a few weeks ago. Ran fine then the other day I noticed at full throttle it's bogging down. Let off the throttle a little and it's fine. Tried starting it today and started fine when choked then when you took the choke off it died. Had to start it with the throttle fully engaged. Any ideas?

If it's only a couple of weeks old, it is still under warranty--take it back to your dealer and have them correct the problem. However, if your purchase was at a big box store(without service capability) you may find a servicing dealer reluctant to jump right on it.

Check the air filter to see if maybe it is full of gas or got water in it some way. There is some adj. on most echo stuff so try messing a little with that. They have stops on the adj. screws so you can't do much adjusting.
