If your petrol has been sitting in the machine for a long time then yes it is your petrol. Mix a new batch usually you cannot let that sit around for more than 30 days, I always try to use fresh mixes, usually that means making smaller batches unless you use your trimmer quite a bit, most people do not though and that's when problems arise.

I think before you do anything else you need to see if it has suffered a piston seizure, remove the two 8mm nuts from the muffler and remove it, check the condition of the piston through the exhaust port, any signs of scuffing and the machine will have to come apart to assess the damage.

Start procedure, switch the ignition switch on, press the primer bulb as many times as it takes to 3/4 fill the bulb, put the choke to the full position,hold the throttle trigger open, crank the engine until it fires once, move the choke to the centre position, crank the engine until it fires up and runs, once warm move the choke to the open position.

If its the same as mine, you need to take off the air filter cover (two allen keys) and then you will probably see that the throttle cable has come out of its fixing on the carb. Hook back in and away you go!
