I have a husqvarna weed eater thatís several years old. Always ran the premixed fuel through it.

I havenít run it much in the last few years as Iíve been paying a yard man.

Now when I crank it, it run strong and normal for a while, then begins to bog down under load, then eventually dies. Will restart but does the same thing.

Air cleaner doesnít look too dirty. Any suggestions on what to try?

Replace the fuel lines and a the primer bulb. (Check the filter in the tank)

Take the muffler off, see if it is clogged.

Both of these require more time than money.

If it's still sick, check the spark plug, and the plug wire. But, my bet is it is getting air in the fuel delivery.

Get your shotgun out, blast it to pieces and go get a Stihl. That's what I did when my Husqvarna had the same problem.

Youíre sucking air as mentioned above. If not cracked rubber then dried out gaskets. If itís the gaskets it will run fine tomorrow. They will magically swell up over night. Probably the rubber parts though.

Gaskets at carb?

Good source for parts?

I just got out of the 2 cycle business Friday. Love my new Ryobi 40 volt. It's so nice to just pick it up and do whatever you have to do. I now have the blower attachment on it.

I have been fixing these things lately. I would get s $15 carb kit from Amazon and change it out. They come with new fuel lines and filter. If that does not do it, add a coil kit to it. The last one needed both. It runs so good now, I will probably buy the carb and coil kits that come with both from now on. Cheap fix.

Oxners right.

So is fireman and cast.

I buy ALL my parts from a local guy.

I find what I believe is the correct part numbers for what I think I need and call them.

I still let them drive the bus.... just have part numbers to speed the job up

Just replaced parts on two Briggs commercial engines for work machines, best place I found for parts was https://www.jackssmallengines.com/

They had a good search engine for parts and the prices on some parts where cheaper than Amazon for oem.

cheap enough to just buy the new carb and fuel lines, I just did this on one here at the ranch and it runs like a top now, and is stihl as well. they all go down sooner or later.

Thanks for the suggestions guys. Ordered. Kit from amazon and installed today. New carb and lines and it’s back to running strong.

Good job Doc! If that ever fails you, add the coil kit. That completes the trifecta. Air, fuel, ignition.

The last Stihl I fixed had become hard to start for some time. I did the carb kit and it would try to start but not run. The coil went in and it started on the first pull. It still does.

Kit came with a new spark plug too. With it installed it would crank and idle but died when you touched the throttle. Put the old plug back and I was in business.

That has happened on my dad's husqvarna chainsaw, proper gap too. Put the old plug back in and voila!
