    I know it's early but I estimate about 2 more months before my Echo SRM-210 gets put away for the winter.

    Whats the best way to store it. It will be stored in a non-climate controlled shed. Should I completely emply it of it's gas or should I keep it filled? Should I add sta-bil or go without it? Any end of season maintainence I shoule preform before putting it away. It doesn't have many hours on it and gets used once a week.

    You can use sta-bil, or just burn or drain all the gas out. Check air filter, blow out w/air hose if necessary. Replace if needed. Thats usually about all I do for winter storage, never had any problems. They always fire up in the spring ready to go. Sometimes I'll grease the gearbox if needed before I hang it up for the winter.
