    Shindaiwa T-230 trimmer. Other than not being able to idle at all, it runs fine. I can't really tell, but it looks like it could be the gasket underneath the part that has the arrows. Thanks for any ideas.

    That would be the cylinder gasket, try spraying some carb&choke cleaner around the base of the cylinder while its running see if your RPM's change.
    If it does check the screws make sure they are all tight if they are then move on to replacing the gasket :)
