    I have a shin t261 and when i tilt it upside down the thing stalls. It just started doing this today. Any thoughts about what the cause is? Thanks

    I just rebuilt the carb on an Echo that was doing the same thing. It sounds to me that it needs new diaphrams. It's these wafer thin gizmos that allow the trimmer to run in all positions.

    If it's new, get the work done under your warranty before it runs out.
