gas is fine, but as soon as i pull the trigger on the blower or weed wacker it bogs down and stalls. once in awhile i'll give it an hour or so and it will work fine, but then a couple yards later, same problem
has anyone else had this problem?

I assume the spark arrestors are out? What model are these and how old?

I had a Robin come in today with the same complaint. Are you filling both units from the same fuel can ? I would change the fuel filter in the tanks and inspect the tanks for any trash or dirt. This may solve your problem.

The reason I ask about the fuel, is that if both units went down and where fueled from the same can of mix, I would be suspect of the fuel....
