Older Echo's were famous for loose choke levers....as well as the exhaust port clogging up on ya. 99.9% of the time if you loose power or poor running engine on your trimmer you'll want to pull off the muffler and scrape out all the carbon buildup from the head...be careful as the heads are made of aluminum.

Glad to hear you solved your problem though.

I guess the mix that the previous owner used was too lean.
Most likely the problem with your fuel hinged on old gas. They say that after about one month or so, even 91 octane fuel can be reduced to less than 87 octane. This is a good reason to keep your gas fresh. The best way to do that is to only buy a small amount of gas (about what you would expect to use in a month or less). They recommend to not store gas more than 1 month. Glad you found the problem and it was no big deal. good luck with your new (new to you) blower.
