I have the same trimmer and had the same problem, its nothing major, first its the spark arrestor. what happens is it gets clogged and it doesnt take long ( mine started crapping out in the first day or so) just take care of that and you should be good. if not let us know i am sure theres a few other tricks but that would be the starter.

Make sure the filter is on the fuel line that is in the tank. It keeps the line weighted down and if it pops off it will cause erratic behavior because the fuel line will suck air.

Ok, i went today and brought it to the dealer. He never said anything about not havin the guard on there. He looked in the take, im sure checkin the fuel filter. and then he adjusted the lil knobs on the back.. he said that it was idelin so low that it was proab. killing due to not enough rpms. so now it runs real good, well it dosent kill. ill be able to really put it to the test on wednesday when i cut all my yards. and you can deff feel the difference and hear the difference in the torque(more power) and then at idel its a good solid idel it dosent sounds like its jumping around and about to kill every two seconds. glad i brought it to the dealer.

maybe gummed up the screen in the muffler.pretty common.required by somebody so you don't start forest fires or something?i usually take it out and throw it away since there aren't many forests to mow in the Sonoran desert.i think its called a spark arrester.

haha, no im not the best speller to begin with. thanks man, imma go pull that screen off right now. i just looked in the book to make sure i was looking at the right thing and how to take it out since its a new trimmer I dont want to mess it up. you can see where its all clogged, maybe this thing will run MUCH better now that the carb has been adjusted and the screen will be off.

i think taking the spark arrester screen out can void the warranty. might ought to check that out 1st. i take mine out, but only after the warranty is up.

Matthew, all you have to do is adjust the bottom screw on the unit. The mechanic at joes showed me a while back. I forgot which way but you should be able to hear the difference. It will let it run without shutting off. Don't turn it too far becuase the head will spin at idle and will be running too fast.
