    Just wondered? Wondered if moisture would get through the air filter and into the carb.

    We recently started a small contruction project in my shop and all of my equipment is currently living outside, rain or shine. So nope, it won't hurt it a bit to use it in light rain and fog.

    If it does mess up your air cleaner, then something is wrong!! But ive had my throttle freeze up several times when using it in the cold.
