Question about Garden
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.

I had a similar issue with line trimmers, one turned out to be a mal-adjusted carburetor and the other a pin hole in the fuel line. The issue you are having sounds fuel related also. Will the trimmer run with the choke partially on? If so that could point to a lack of fuel to the engine is the culprit. Too much oil to fuel ratio can cause the symptom along with those mentioned above. I use Gold Sprctra oil, its pricey but I have seen two cycle stuff come to life after switching oils.

I know this is late. Did you ever find out what happened? I have the same model, and its done this twice now. Both times the dealer has adjusted the carb and made it ok, but I'd like to know what is actually causing the problem myself.
