    I've got a redmax backpack I've had for several years with no problems.Started it today to do a little spring clean-up.Ran good for about 3-4 min.then it wouldn't take full thottle.Runs fine at 1/2 thottlle or so.Give it full it will stop like its out of fuel when it isn't.It has fresh fuel with stablelizer.Fuel filter looks good,air cleaner looks good.Any thoughs before I tare in to it or take it to the stealer.
    Thanks tony58

    A) replace fuel filter regardless of looks.
    B) If that doesnt work, dissassemble and clean the carb.

    This reminds me of a lean run condition. check and replace fuel lines as well, doesnt hurt to get those cheap things replaced now. they dry out and crack eventually anyways.
