View Full Version : Echo pole pruner won't idle

My father-in-law gave me his Echo pole pruner.

It was sitting in his garage unused for a few years with stale gas in it.

I drained the old gas and put fresh 89 octane and Echo 2 cycle oil in.

It starts up easy and will run fine with the throttle, but if I let go of the throttle, it stops.

Did the old gas gum up the carb, and if so, is there an easy fix?
