Echo pole pruner won't idle

    My father-in-law gave me his Echo pole pruner.

    It was sitting in his garage unused for a few years with stale gas in it.

    I drained the old gas and put fresh 89 octane and Echo 2 cycle oil in.

    It starts up easy and will run fine with the throttle, but if I let go of the throttle, it stops.

    Did the old gas gum up the carb, and if so, is there an easy fix?
