I got a question. I am working on a Husqavarna 125 leaf blower and it has perfect compression,fire,and air flow. I cleaned the carb and put new fuel lines on it. It will crank up and run but after it gets going it just dies out as if you just hit the kill switch. When you pull the plug and look at it ,it is way flooded. Do I need to adjust the factory settings?

The only thing i know is the guy was using it and it just died like someone flipped the switch,he found the fuel lines were rotted which leads us to where we are now. Auggestions?

sounds like someone was using ethanol added gasoline, it will just ruin a carb.Go to any saw shop and look at the pile of saws,leaf blowers,weed eaters,all gasoline related problems.

I'm in the market for a chainsaw. The wife and I are in the process of purchasing land to build a house. I need to clear 2 acres or so of hardwoods, mostly red oak with some maple in there. As far as chainsaws go, what would I need to pull this off? I was thinking of buying a Stihl since they seem to have a great product based on what I have read an heard from owners. What size?

sounds like a good project. i have heard that there is more to be gained by porting them then by slapping the BB kit on one. any thoughts

I don't claim to be an expert...

husky, dolmar, jonsered, stihl, is like ford, chevy, dodge. what are the dealers like near you. i like my stihl dealer the best and i've grown up using them which is why i like them. how big are the trees you need to clear? that will influence your decision. always buy more than saw than you need. i think you would be happy with a husky 372, or a stihl 044, 440, or 441. all will pull a 20 to 28 in bar (the stihls are rated for 32)
