Junk ran good for a year new mag new carb new,flywheel key just wont start
Takes too long warming up. This leaf blowers engine went out after only about 6 hours run time. Its pure trash and I’ll never purchase another echo brand product after seeing a backlog off echo power equipment at the local small engine shop.
