Question about Echo Garden
I have 2 echos. A GT1000 I can not start, something with the choke positioning, and a GT2000 that starts perfectly, but when applying the throttle the head does not accelerate and spin faster, it stays slow. Can I take the shaft from the GT1000 and use it in the GT2000?

could be but lets try some other things first
On the carb. you have a primer bulb have you pushed that several times and is there gas in the bulb itself?
Are all of your fuel lines intact and not broken or brittle including the primer bulb?
Are you using fresh fuel mixture?
Be sure your stop and run switch is in the run position.
find your air filter and remove the filter itself
then you will be looking at the inlet side of the carb.opening and a orange choke shutter
Take a thimbles full of mixed fuel and pour directly into the carb opening with the choke off( turn trimmer on its side to do this)
now with everything (except for the filter) set to run try to start your trimmer 4 or 5 pulls
does it try to run? runs and shuts off? if so then you have carb. issues
which you can either replace or rebuild
sometimes if you do not want to tackle it yourself then it is less time consuming to replace it
but not cheaper.
hope this helps you some

Normally when you have to apply the choke on a machine it means that the carb has trash in it, or the diaphragms a getting hard and not functioning as they should.
Time to rebuild the carb on your trimmer if your trimmer is a few years old, otherwise take apart the carb and blow all passages out with compressed air, clean all surfaces and reassemble and install on the machine.
I hope this helped, Please rate me
