    I have a blower that will start and run for a few minutes then die out....very hard to start after that. I had to replace some fuel lines, before I replaced them the blower was working fine....now its hit or miss.

    Also, my echo weedeater is shaking on the engine end. its never really done this before. I don't mean a little shaking- if you hold it with one hand it feels like arm is gonna vibrate off.

    Any insight?

    You have a leak in the fuel lines. Either a hole in the line or sucking air at one of the connections ends. Check to make sure the lines are seated completely at the ends first.

    I replaced all of the lines as a preventative measure, I'll double check everything again tom.

    Any ideas about the weedeater?

    We had a Shindawia T2500 do that last year and it was the little gearbox on the end of the shaft that drives the trimmer head.

    Did you do anything to the trimmer or did it start vibrating on it's own?

    I think I got the blower problem fixed....I didn't trim the replacement gas line to fit....it was too long.

    In terms of the weedeater, It only shakes towards the middle of its rpm range. It doesn't really do much at the hi or lo end.
