SOURCE: What is the correct ratio for fuel mix for a ECHO

A 50:1 ratio with 89 Octane fuel can be used in all ECHO 2-stroke equipment, provided the oil is ISO-L-EGD and JASO M345 FC/FD certified. ISO-L-EGD and JASO M345 FC/FD oil must be used with a mid-grade (89 octane) or premium gasoline in all 1997 and newer engines.
A 50:1 Ratio = 1 US Gal. 89 Octane + 2.6 fl. oz. ECHO POWER BLEND OIL
Echo Power Blend Universal 2-Stroke Oil can be used in all of our 2-cycle air-cooled equipment ever made. You may also use this oil in any other brand of 2-cycle air cooled equipment, but it should always be mixed at the 50:1 ratio whether or not it was a 32:1 or 16:1 etc. machine. This oil is the highest quality 2-cycle oil on the market today. There is no need to have more than 1 tank of fuel for your 2-cycle equipment any more.
Use only fresh gasoline with a minimum octane rating of 89 through 93 (mid-grade to premium) at all times. The gasoline suppliers blend mid-grade and premium gasoline with greater amounts of detergents and anti-oxidizing additives to keep the engines clean. Lack of these detergents and additives in a 2-stroke engine will cause a heavy build-up of varnish and gum deposits on the piston surface and ring grooves. Regular unleaded 87 octane or lower gasoline may not contain enough of the detergent additives that are needed in a 2-stroke engine to keep varnish, gum, and tar deposits from forming. Use of 87 octane fuel may shorten the life of the engine.

ALL TWO-STROKE OILS ARE NOT EQUAL!
ECHO POWER BLEND OIL, is manufactured exclusively for ECHO, Inc. and meets the (ISO) International Standards Organizations highest performance rating of ISO-L-EGD for Air Cooled 2 Stroke oils and is JASO M345 FC/FD REGISTERED. Years of research and testing have resulted in an oil that is fully compatible with fuels containing 10% ethanol and can be used in all air - cooled, outdoor power equipment 2-Stroke engines at 50:1 ratio. ISO-L-EGD and JASO M345 FC/FD rated oils must be used with a mid-grade (89 octane) or premium gasoline in all 1997 and newer engines. Always look for the JASO M345 FC/FD square logo and registration number to ensure you are using the highest quality 2-stroke oil for your ECHO product.
ECHO POWER BLEND OIL is made for high revving, (7,000 RPM and up) air-cooled 2-stroke engines that are E.P.A. and C.A.R.B. emissions certified. Make sure the oil has a EGD and FC/FD certification. Oils that meet ISO, EGA/EGB/EGC and JASO FA and FB are of lesser quality, designed for applications such as water-cooled boat engines, low RPM lawnmower engines, or snowmobile engines and should not be used in ECHO Engines. Prior to 1997, oils were not manufactured to these higher standards. Some or most of the oils were simply 30 or 40 weight 4-stroke engine oil with minimum amounts of additives. ECHO POWER BLEND OIL is the highest quality 2-Stroke oil available and will provide maximum protection against engine wear and carbon buildup.

SOURCE: I have an echo weedeater srm 261t it will start and idle but dies when I give it gas.

nichodemus, you can thank the epa for this. All of the 2-stroke handhelds now come from the factory set up very lean. Almost every new 2-stroke that I have bought in the past few years has needed a carb adjustment, both on the low speed needle and the high speed needle. There are tamper resistant plugs over the adjustment screws on most carbs now. Unless you know what you are doing, the dealer will have to do this.

SOURCE: How to remove trimmer head from Echo 230 SRM?

I know I'm replying to a old post, but this might help others. My Echo GT225 might be similiar. Once u are down to the thread bolt & the round shaft part that spins in ither direction, u need to thread back on the line spool, at lest the botton part of it to hold the thread bolt in place. Then start turn that rounded part that normally just spins, it will start to thread off, as you are thrreading it off you may have to also start threading the line spool part off as well at the same time. After that you will need the tool that takes off the C ring clamp thing that's underneath. I couldn't find any info on this online, I just kept on playing with it until I figured it out, UGH.

Have a ECHO gas trimmer SRM 2100 wont start. coulld it be the fly wheel


If it doesn't turn over when you pull the rope it could be in the starter assembly or the flywheel where the starter pawls engage it. If it turns over then you need to check for fuel, spark, air and compression.
