if you have problems with it take it to the dealer. sounds like it just needs to get broken in or is a lemon.

First problem, it won't idle, and I thought it might be an idle screw adjustment, so I am glad I checked this site. I live in Colorado, and the elevation sometimes messes with things, not to mention the manufacturers don't always adjust everything perfectly like Stihl manual states. I will adjust this problem tomorrow, and thank you for the help on that one...

Second problem, when I start to throttle up, the thing sounds like it is going to die (sounds like it is flooding, bogging, dying), and then all of a sudden, it might recover (if it doens't fall flat on its face like it has several times), and then take off like a jet, and I have to screw with the throttle just to calm it down, but yet not let it die (throttle up down up down up down up down while in use...lame as hell). Is this flooding, dying issue under throttle something that one of you might have seen or fixed? I mean, the idle screw on an old 2 stroke motorcycle never caused the RPM curve to bog in areas...just caused it not to idle. So I don't see how it would do anything in this case either, but I am all ears. Normally, I would say this is an air/fuel mixture issue, but Stihl's manual swears there is nothing to adjust, soo...

The unit is brand new, with no dirt, dust, etc in any filters...only used it 2x now (1 half tank, and another 10 minutes of time a week later on a new tank of fuel, both acting identical).

Thank you, I appreciate any ideas or experience you can offer,

CalGuY (This is what I feel like doing to my 130 currently LOL!)

All the trimmers will need idle adjust on them period.

Is the mix correct? Did you buy premix and double your warranty 2 to 4 years?

I been thinking about swapping to Sthil I still love my echos they been die hard nearing 10years, only thing ever replaced was starter recoil, 1 bubble, and bearing burnt in trimmer head after over 8 years of main trimmer use.

Id have to go back and double check the actual info from Stihl, but that double warranty will only apply to home owner use. it does not apply to lawn care guys using them commercially. The warranty period is different if I remember correctly.

I'd bet good money he entered your warranty registration as a homeowner. It's the only way to get the extended coverage, and a lot of dealers seem to do it.
