    Having problems with my stihl br550, when it gets down to about half a tank it will start to stall out and i have to feather the throttle to keep it going. Just wondering if anyone else has run across this and what they did to fix it

    Stihl has a recall on these for the 600 and 550. they make the fuel line longer and use a weighted filter.

    Cool thanks man, just wanted to know before i brought it to the dealer. Is it a recall or just something they know about?
