    Could I suggest you switch carb's with your other edger, at least it would determine if it's the carb or another fault. I have had some new carbs that are faulty, not cleaned out properly at the factory.

    fiddling with adjustment screws The screw furthest from the block is the main jet, don't be afraid to undo this until the engine runs smooth

    Good luck, Phil

    Bingo.....why do we always miss the obvious....Good recommendation. That is why I continue to buy Echo because I can switch the parts.
