My Echo blower has caught the same bug over time and I work around it the same way. It starts fine... it just won't rev up... wants to choke out. The weather doesn't matter either. Does this in the summer too.LB1234 said:Start er up and let sit for about a minute or too...grab a drink from the truck, make a phone call, whatever....once it warms up the thing kicks some serious a...i mean grass... It seems everyone has this issue. IMHO, its a tradeoff I'm willing to take.
I hope you're not revving it to 10,000 RPM when it's cold.stevesmowing said:it just takes some breaking in. I start mine full throttle full choke and leave it at full throttle and just move the choke on and off for a few seconds.
