    The blower is about 2 years old, just started acting up. It's fine for the first 20 mins. then when it gets hot it starts to cut out, especially at full throttle, so I have to back off the throttle to keep it from stalling.

    It idles fine, works decently at 1/4 throttle but after a while it starts to sputter then too.

    I put a new spark plug in, cleaned the air filter, cleared the fuel lines and fuel pick-up. Exhaust port and muffler are clear also.

    if you changed the fuel filter and checked the tank venting system then your coil is probably breaking down when hot.

    I had the same problem with my Echo pb650. It turned out to be a
    bad coil. :usflag:
