There looks to be no carb adjustments or throttle lever adjustments. Anyone have any ideas? It is brand new so under warranty, but I bought it online and I have a feeling a local dealer may not want to bother looking at it. Thanks.
That's normal. It has a rev limiter built into the ignition module. It'll peak to higher RPM's once you put a load on it.
Stihl 4-mix equipment also uses this technology and I just recently realized, so does their inexpensive HS-45 hedge trimmer.
