    MY BP BLOWER (STIHL 340) WHICH I PURCHASED ABOUT 2 MONTH AGO HAVING A TROUBLE.
    I WOULD SAY 40% OF THE BLOWING POWER IS LOST.
    NO MATTER HOW HARD I TRY TO SQUEEZE THE TRIGGER THE POWER USED TO HAVE IS NOT THERE ANYMORE.
    I THOUGHT MAY B AN AIR FILTER BUT FILTER IS CLEAN.
    MAY BE ENGINE SETTING IS OFF BY VIBRATION BUT I DON'T THINK.
    MAY BE A TRIGGER CABLE IS LOOSE....:confused: :confused:
    HELP.

    Maybe take it back to the dealer.

    i would pull out the screen of the exhuast . that might help
     
  4. try checking the resistor screen up in the muffler sometimes they plug up and you loose power ...like said if it aint the resistor screen take it to the dealer

    check to see if the muffler is partially blocked give it a good clean out that may solve your problem
