2 Year warranty, you probably need to adjust the L screw and or the LA screw. Give it a shot, it might save you a trip to the dealer.

Trimmer Kills....I thought this would be about what kind of varmints got killed

Last week, a toad.

Also, snakes, rats, and frogs have been trimmer kills.

There is a screen in new mufflers called a spark arrester which must be removed. Look at yours and see if it is clogged up. If you leave this screen in you will be maintaining it for the rest of your life.

HAHA yeah I know what your saying. I was thinking to myself about that while making the thread. But no honestly, echo just isnt what it used to be as I have been told and I had bad luck with mine. However, I will say, that my residental homeowner backpack blower pb265l or something, it did handle its load. And my trimmer did get used and it handled its duties when it worked good and I liked it. But when I had problems it was jus endless.

Had the same problem with one of my old Echo's I've been using at home. Used a fresh tank of mix instead of the one my wife mixed. Runs like new now.

If you don't know what you're doing take it to the dealer, otherwise it's probably a simple 1/4 turn or so of the idle stop screw, more than likely it's letting the rpm's fall a little too low. Very common problem, now I'm not saying you're doing it but if this is the kind of thing that's making folks talk trash about one brand vs. the other...

put it back on just to be safe. they do have a one year warranty. they've always been good about warranty stuff for me. they also have a 5yr warranty on certain engine components.
