It seems like more and more people are just going to the shop and spending x amount of dollars on simple repairs. I just got a echo PB400E from a guy who used to landscape he said he hasnt used it in more than 2 years. And than said I could take it for 50$. I cleaned the spark plug. Cleaned the air filter and it blows like a champ . anyway do most of you guys do your own repairs or just have some one else do them.
