I got an old Echo Gt-2000R curved shaft trimmer. She still runs like a champ but all of a sudden (after someone else borrowed) the trimmer head wont keep up with the engine rpm. If you hit the throttle the trim head will slowly catch up with the engine rpm but as soon as you put it in the grass the resistance of the grass slows the head to a stop while the engine rpm is still roaring. Lift it out of the grass and it slowly catches up again. What do yall think clutch went bad? Kinda wierd since the head isnt frozen and the engine still runs fine. Could this be a symptom of low compression? The trimmer is getting pretty old. Gimme your thought please

I don't know much about these little engine designs, but it sounds like a clutch of some kind is failing......!!!!
