SOURCE: Echo SHC-212 hedge trimmer starts and runs briefly

If it has not had a service recently, it's probably due by now.
Just take out the spark plug, and if it's black, or 'coked' up, just show it a wire brush.
Also, remove the air filter, and if you have one, show that, a compressor. (or alternatively, just bang it about a bit, till all the loose debris, and collective build-up, are removed.
Afterwards, (if that doesn't solve the problem),
you can adjust the timing, quite simply, by closing, or opening, the gap on the plug.
Or you can open or close the space between the contact, and the magneto.
Both can be very 'effective' means of adjusting the timing.
If problems still persist,
you know who to ask.
P.s. and don't forget to give the thumbs up ;)

SOURCE: I need coil and spark plug gap settings for echo

0.026 inch, or 6-8 mm is the plug gap.

The ignition coil air gap range is 0.012 - .016"" or .3 - .4 mm. This is the gap between the flywheel and the ignition coil.

An easy way to gap your coil is use a normal business card between the coil and flywheel, tighten the screws and remove the card.

SOURCE: sharpen hedge trimmer blade??

My trick is to make sure that I always lube the blades after each session with a 3/4 engine oil + 1/4 kerosene mix - making sure that every tooth gets a drops or 2, then run it for a seconds to spread the oil & leave the blades overlapping. Doing this allows the blades to self sharpen I've found. 2 stroke oil , unmixed is about the perfect viscosity aswell.

Bogs down after warming up

check exhaust port first. then carb adjustments, then either crankshaft seals or carb needs replaced... You cannot adjust carb, it has to go to a certified center for this procedure... Thank the EPA for this B.S. and no you cannot by the adjustment tools on Ebay.

Echo hsc 225 hedge trimmer throttle sticks

I would suspect a defective throttle valve ( carb ) try this, three screws on top ( by throttle valve ) loosen them slightly and see if this frees up. If not find a dealer and get a new carb. You now know what damages ethanol causes.

My Echo SHC-212 will start and slow idle but when I give it gas it boggs and stalls. I've changed the spark plug and I'm using the proper mix. Any suggestions? I was thinking of trying to clean the carb...

The prior posters must be from the Briggs & Stratton era :0] This is an EPA carb. You can only adjust the idle speed. The Echo SHC-212 uses the Zama RB-K75 carb.

My SHC-212 had the same bogg/stall symptoms. I had to disassemble and clean the carb to get rid of it. There is an internal filter screen that sometimes clogs. I soak and use compressed air to blow out all orifices. But the real problem is leaving ethanol gas in the carb during storage. It warps the delicate gaskets/valves. So buy Zama rebuild kit.

Carb needs to be adjusted, what are the settings for the carb?

I suggest you turn the jets 1-1/4 turns out and start it up and you can fine tune it from there.

Cleaned carb on echo headge trimmer how do i redo

It will depend on what type of carburetor you have. You can go to this website and enter your model and it should give you the correct settings. If you cannot find the info, start with each about 1 1/2 turns out and go from there. A little hit and miss and you will figure the correct setting. When setting the high speed, you want to hold the throttle wide open and slowly adjust the screw. It will suddenly start to run very smoothly, and that's a good setting for the high speed.
