    I have a 2 year old 2401 that is bogging down when giving it gas. I have cleaned the fuel filter and tank. Cleaned the muffler and air filter. Any other ideas before I tear apart the carb? I sometimes will run ok if it is hot but takes a while to get the line to start spinning. thanks

    did you clean the spark arrestor in the muffler
    its a round looking nub you can grab with pliers
    and pull out and clean try that

    Have you greased the" head" lately? The part that the string head screws into has a grease fitting on it.
