    I have a Stihl BG85 blower that is bogging down. First thing I did was to check out the muffler to see if it was clogged. I didn't see a spark arester screen to remove or clean. So, I started the blower up without the muffler on and it was still bogging down. So, that eliminates the muffler being clogged, right?

    Other things I checked: Changed the fuel. Checked the air and fuel filter. Any other ideas?

    pulpit is that the commericial hand held?
    I had the BG-65, and i blew it up. The carburator went and it was during my busy time where it was easier to buy a new backpack at 500 then buy a new stihl. I trashed it.
