Why exactly I would need to do this in the real world, I don't know, but I just wonder if it's normal - especially since this thing only has about 10 hours of use on it so far. Basically if I pulled the trigger fully very briefly (don't even give it time to rev up fully), release, pull it again, release, and pull it again, but the third time it's either dead or just about to die. Flooded, I guess? But should it be? The only reason I ask is I also have a Stihl 110 power pack that I use for an edger and string trimmer attachment and I can do that to it all day long and it never skips a beat. It seems much more rev-happy than the 85, too. The 85 is much more slow to spool up - maybe that's just the nature of a gas blower compared to a gas trimmer or edger? Or the nature of the two different engines by the same manufacturer? The 85 also seems to be far less tollerant to starting up cold. If I start it up and give it 30 seconds at idle on the 110 it will be ready to rev and won't complain a bit. On the 85 it kind of takes a bit to rev all the way up when it's cold and kinda stutters a tad along the way. Normal or no?
