    I am not familiar with that model but it probably has adjustments on the carb and sounds like it needs more gas.....rotate the low setting counter clockwise a half turn for more gas. A new unit should not need most of the stuff I described above but it may have a spark arrestor in the muffler and that may bog the unit.
