    I agree. My 1-year old PB-250 had the same problem, and it was solved by needle adjustment by my dealer under warranty. It runs great now

    If you are talking about a small blower, my Echo bogs down instantly when you hit the throttle. HOWEVER, the directions say you must let it run at idle for five minutes before you can open the throttle and use it as normal. Something to do with emission controls, I am thinking. Starts and runs fine after warm up. Pull the rope about 3 inches and away it goes.

    And that means it is running real lean. If you want to avoid the 5 minute thing then turn the closest needle to the engine a little CCW.
