    I have a less than 1 yr old trimmer and yesterday it started bogging down and oil started coming out of the muffler/spark arrestor. Ik know for fact that the mix is 50/1 or a bit less than that with premium gas and Redmax oil that I have been using for a long time without any issues. Any input will be helpful I am going to look at it later today.

    Have you cleaned the screen ? They clog up quickly and restrict the exhaust causing poor performance and overheating. I remove mine on all my 2 cycles.

    Well I thought the screen was removed it was there and full of debris wet and nasty. My dad thought he did a favor and added the mix for me but it already had been added He put a whole 2.5 bottle in one gallon of gas.took off muffler cleaned port all is good now
