that's a pretty amazing engine isn't it? mine messed up a few weeks back and i found it was caused by a piece of metal from the air filter mesh that went in the intake and scored the cylinder wall pretty good, new parts and it's back to good

7001 Problem

I have had an occasional 7001 have a rough running due to fuel quality. This particular blower is a high compression engine. My demo unit until broke in ran better on mid grade or premium. For good measure replace the plug. Generally the ignition is a live or dead and deteriorates with heat. Is the tank vent operating properly is another possible cause. Get it to the dealer and explain it has a 2 year commercial warranty and you want it to run right. If it's a manufacturers defect fix it. If it's my fault show me how to never have this problem again. Either way you need it right.
