Shindaiwa T242 trimmer

I have a Shindaiwa T242 trimmer that bogs down when full throttle. I did a maintence kit on it and it help for about a week or two. I just put a new carb on it about a month ago and now it is starting to bog again. Any suggestions on what is going on with it? Thanks

Well... with a new carb. etc., 'bout the only thing left would be to check the spark screen and exh. port, the port could be clogged even if the screen is not.

But to be sure, you really need to check with member "lawnBOY dan", I hear he is the resident Shindaiwa expert!!!

If you have clogged exhaust port you're either running too rich on oil or too low an octane fuel.

or you spend too much time running half throttle instead of wide open.

Yep!
One of the worst thing idiots do is take off the cutter head shroud. That lets the line get too long, and that bogs down the rpm's, and that leads to clogged up exh. ports.
