echo srm 210

I have an echo srm 210 that has been a great trimmer! It's about 10 years il but is a work horse. I was in the middle of trimmer a yard this week and it seemed to just choke out. Tried to crank again an it does but then stalls out. I have cleaned the carb, spark plug, and fuel lines and filters... With no avail.

What could be the issue?

the rings are probably worn out too along with the cylinder.

place it on the ground. grab the recoil handle and pick it up but that alone.

if you can pick it up that way and it pretty much hangs there then the PC is probably ok. if it uncoils then you don't have enough compression for it to stay running

Check the exhaust port and screen if it has one.
