Sorry for lack of model info here guys, but for the past few years, I've been working solo and with an orange Echo 2 cycle backpack blower - the one weih the metal welded throttle handle, on/off switch and plastic throttle control. I've taken on a helper this year and inherited a grey? Echo backpack (2 cycle) blower that can seriously put out some air. But... it seems the choke position has been reversed as well as the throttle - plus instead of an on/off switch, the throttle lever is just all the way at the top. To be clear, the Orange choke used to be in the down position, but the grey seems opposite. I am getting wrist and elbow damage trying to get this ******** thing to start, but when it works, and I don't forget which direction to put the lever, it does kick some ass. Here's the question: Am I right about the controls direction being reversed and that is part of the problems I'm having getting it running or is the damn thing just rigged wrong by the last crew to make it work? Or is it just carberuetor settings?
