A few months ago my dad bought an Echo Cs 3400 chainsaw.
That's there equivelant to the Stihl MS200. The problem is that it takes approximately 3 attempts to start and run it. This is our usuall starting procedure. Close the choke and prime it 10 times per Echo instructions,then crank it over. After it dies open the choke and crank it over. On this step it does start ,but it dies as soon as it starts. It takes about 3 times following the normal start-up procedure,before it finally stays running. We have taken it to the dealer,but it did'nt act up at all.Maybe this is normal for it,but I don't think so.Isay this becuse I have a Stihl MS 660 that all I have to do to it is close the choke,and in two pulls it starts. From there open the choke half way and again in two pulls it starts.From there blip the trigger and it goes to idle,and it's ready to work. Any advise on this problem would be appreciated. Thanks in advane Mike.
